Rookie snap counts through the quarter pole of the season

Notes:

  • Snap count data collected from Pro Football Focus.
  • Rookie status per ESPN’s roster pages.
  • Snaps that occurred during the Thursday night Rams-Cardinals game were not included.
  • The Steelers and Colts already had their bye weeks, so their numbers are a little lower than they should be.
  • Special teams snaps not counted

    McClain is not a rookie, he has been on the NFL for three years

  3. Stuart says:

    Your number are not accurate at all. I can name more than two Falcons rookies that have started snaps this year. McClain picked off Peyton Manning during a monday night game as one example.

      FUnny to see that two entering links are from French NFL blogs!

      1. I’m huge in France!

        1. Frencheagles says:

          Seriously, yes you are. You should check what % of visits come from France. I’m interested by the number…

  5. Dave King says:

    Well, if you project the rookie snaps for four games, the Colts would have 948 (#3) and the Steelers would still be #30.

    Also, is Garrett Celek for the Niners Brent’s brother? By the way, image search his name and you will not be disappointed.

    1. mjoedgaard says:

      yea Garrett Celek is Brent Celeks little brother

    2. mjoedgaard says:

      Garrett Celek wins for no name NFL player with hottest GF?

  6. Dan in Philly says:

    the eagles have a whoooole lotta rookie snaps on defense. this is very encouraging considering how good it has been.

  7. [...] Notre blog collègue/rival des Redskins vient de sortir un premier bilan pour RGIII. Vu que c’est une bonne idée, je me suis dit que j’allais faire pareil. Heureuse coïncidence, Jimmy de bloggingthebeast vient de sortir le nombre snaps de chaque rookie. [...]

  8. maximdim says:

    Did any teams have bye weeks yet? They usually start week 4 right? Anyways great work Jimmy… this seems to be going against the grain for the eagles since we usually never have rookies play so many snaps… I guess it has changed though after DeSean was drafted

    1. Yes, Steelers and Colts. I’ll add that into the notes.
