This week’s edition of the 2021 NFL Power Rankings is all about first impressions, as we got to see every NFL team enter the field for the first time in a game that matters after months of buildup and excitement. However, Week 1’s first impressions go far beyond team performance.
NFL Power Rankings Week 2 2021 1-32 poll including which rookies had the best initial impression
For the rookie class of 2021, Week 1 marked not just the commencement of a new season, but also the start of a new career. We received our first look at how these newcomers stand up in the league after months of research, analysis, and debate. As a result, our NFL Nation writers selected one standout rookie from each of the teams they cover. While several of the names are familiar from mock draughts (three of the first-round quarterbacks, for example), others are second- or third-round picks. While one game does not make or break a career, it doesn’t hurt to get off to a quick start and create a strong first impression in the NFL. How we rank in our Power Rankings: Throughout the season, our power panel of more than 80 journalists, editors, and TV personalities examines how teams stack up.
Kansas City Chiefs
Smith had a 100 percent pass block win rate. His 68.8 percent run block victory rate was in the middle of the pack among starting guards, but it was nonetheless excellent for a sixth-round pick making his NFL debut. At the very least, Smith’s inclusion in the starting lineup vindicated the Chiefs’ decision. Adam Teicher’s remark
Tampa Bay Buccaneers
Outside of special teams, there wasn’t much of a chance for a Bucs first-year player to make an impact, but Tryon-Shoyinka played 19 defensive snaps and made two combined tackles, a quarterback hit, and a 10% pressure rate on Dak Prescott. He also saw action on special teams for 20 snaps. He’ll have more chances to provide a formidable pass rush option for the Tampa Bay defence in the future.

The Seahawks had three rookies on their game-day roster with OT Stone Forsythe out, and two of them — LB Jon Rhattigan and OT Jake Curhan — only played special teams. As a result, Eskridge is the default option. However, his NFL debut was a 6-yard reception and 22 rushing yards on two end-around carries, which is one way the Seahawks plan to get the ball into the hands of their explosive second-round choice. Eskridge, on the other hand, suffered a head injury on his second carry and did not return, putting his Week 2 fate in jeopardy. Brady Henderson’s quote
Los Angeles Rams
In the Rams’ season opener, just two rookies saw play on offence or defence. Tutu Atwell, the Rams’ second-round pick, played two offensive snaps, while Rochell played 27 defensive snaps. When starter David Long Jr. went to the sideline with cramping in the third quarter, Rochell was brought in. When Bears quarterback Andy Dalton threw a fourth-and-15 pass to receiver Darnell Mooney in the fourth quarter, the fourth-round pick had a great pass breakup. He had a tackle and a pass deflection to his credit. “[Rochell] came in and held his own,” Jalen Ramsey, the cornerback, said. Lindsey Thiry (Lindsey Thiry)
With DE, Rousseau is essentially the only option. In Week 1 and OT, Boogie Basham was inactive. The only other active rookies on the game-day roster, Spencer Brown and S Damar Hamlin, mostly contributed to a mixed special teams performance. Rousseau, the 30th overall choice, played 52 percent of the defensive snaps, second most by a Bills DE behind veteran Jerry Hughes, and had two tackles in the loss. Rousseau made his presence felt early in the game, despite without recording a sack. The Bills’ pass rush, which was one of the team’s major difficulties last season, is still evolving. — Getzenberg, Alaina
After fighting a hamstring ailment in training camp, the third-round pick out of Auburn made a strong debut. He had a 17-yard rush off a reverse and grabbed three catches for 69 yards. In the fourth quarter, he was unable to make a third-down reception downfield, which could have been the difference in the 33-29 loss. Because punter Jamie Gillan dropped the ball on the next play, Kansas City took the lead for good. Jake Trotter’s remark
San Francisco 49ers
Although it’s early, Lenoir appears to be the Niners’ next fifth-round diamond in the rough. Due to the absence of Emmanuel Moseley due to a knee injury, Lenoir was assigned to the outside corner opposite Jason Verrett. Lenoir played 55 coverage snaps and was targeted four times, according to NFL Next Gen Stats, surrendering one three-yard completion. Despite a pass interference penalty, Lenoir had a strong start for a player who is expected to take over an important role on a more permanent basis following the injury to Verrett’s right knee.
