Who are the scariest rookies around the AFC West?Josh Jacobs will be a bell cow early in his NFL career. Kirby Lee-USA TODAY SportsRookie mini-camps are the first chance for everyone to overreact. It’s kind of a big sign that real football is a long way away as everyone runs to crown the next Hall of Famers. D.K. Metcalf seems to be the most recent beneficiary, while guys like Greedy Williams are obviously busts. I kid, of course, but one of the more interesting tweets I ran into over this past weekend came on Saturday from the Senior Bowl (and longtime NFL Scout) Director Jim Nagy.His tweet started a lot of fun conversations over the weekend from around the league about different guys that teams knew couldn’t hack it immediately. It got me thinking about what rookies around the Division that already look like they’ll be scary, good or bad.Kansas City ChiefsScary good: Juan ThornhillI had Thornhill in a similar tier as Darnell Savage, who went at 21 overall to the Green Bay Packers. They come to the league with different skill sets (Savage profiles as a strong safety, while Thornhill is a free), but both offer the kind of ball hawking ability that will make passes in their vicinity an intimidating proposition for opposing quarterbacks. What makes the former Virginia Cavalier even more terrifying is how he perfectly compliments Tyrann Mathieu to give the Chiefs a versatile duo who can match up with receivers, cover a deep third, or provide help in run support. It’s no surprise ESPN’s Louis Riddick is a big fan.Scary bad: Rashad Fenton Steve Nelson moved on to the Pittsburgh Steelers this off-season because Steve Spagnuolo’s new defense doesn’t really value man coverage corners. Kendall Fuller and Charvarius Ward will play significant time in 2019 and were better than the national media would lead you to believe, but Fuller is an unrestricted free agent after the year. As highly as the team thought of Mecole Hardman, it’s worth wondering if Kansas City would have been wise to take a corner higher than the 6th round. Los Angeles ChargersScary good: Nasir AdderlyI mentioned as it happened that I thought a lot of Tom Telesco’s draft. Jerry Tillery and Drue Tranquill will both help them out of the gate, barring any health issues. Adderley is likely to have the biggest opportunity to make a difference in 2019 Menelik Watson Jersey , though.The needle continues to point upwards in Los Angeles as the team secures a solid draft haul | NFL Analysis | Pro Football FocusScary bad: Trey Pipkins This isn’t meant as an indictment of Pipkins, but he’s making a huge jump from Sioux Falls to the NFL. Telesco has already stated that he sees the rookie as the apparent heir to Russell Okung once the former Bronco has moved on, which may come as soon as 2020. I loved his traits coming out, it’s just that there’s some very real expectations placed on him due to his 3rd round pedigree. Oakland RaidersScary good: Josh JacobsI didn’t think much of the Raiders first round of the draft, mostly because Mike Mayock and Jon Gruden did a poor job of maximizing the value of their three first round picks. I do fully expect Clelin Ferrell, Johnathan Abram, and Josh Jacobs to earn significant playing time in camp, even if only because the Raiders’ depth chart is sort of a tire fire.Jacobs has the best chance to make a big difference for Oakland this season. As a running back who brings a versatile skill set, he’s likely to play on all 3 downs and have every chance to turn into a workhorse. If he does, that will make Gruden’s offense a lot more scary, as he’ll have a player who can punish defenses for devoting too much attention to Antonio Brown and Tyrell Williams.Scary bad: Travyon MullenTo be fair, no prospect seemed to split NFL Draft analysts as much as the former Clemson Tiger did the past 3 months. He’s the guy who seemed to spark a days-long Twitter beef between The Draft Network and Bleacher Report’s Matt Miller. Others saw him as a third or even fourth round value.-Dane Brugler If Miller and Mayock are right, the Raiders will have a boundary corner locked up for the next four years Shelby Harris Jersey , as he’s all but certain to start in 2019. If they aren’t, opposing quarterbacks will know where to throw against the Raiders defense this year.

Sanders was running full speed and starting to work on lateral movement last month, and a Friday update shows that there haven’t been any setbacks since that point.Sanders posted a video showing him running routes and catching passes with a caption noting how long it will be until the Broncos are at training camp.“Back in the lab running routes. Month and a half till training camp. Bout to turn up the heat,” Sanders wrote.The Broncos will likely take their time easing Sanders back to a full workload, but it looks like they’ll have a good chance of getting him there by the time they face the Raiders on the first Monday night of the regular season.
