FFEE - 2014 Rookie WR Class - Best EVER?!


NFL.com has a great article (here) on some of the reasons why the 2014 NFL Rookie WR class has performed so well so far. Here are some interesting stats!

As a whole, the 2014 class is on pace to finish with nearly 200 more catches, over 2,500 more yards and 40 more touchdowns than any class from this century. Seven rookies have five or more touchdown catches, the most for any full season in NFL history.
