However, let's remember that the likes of John Elway

It's far too early to judge an NFL player based off of their first season Chris Lindstrom Jersey , but many fans and pundits often forget this.Many have already labeled a handful of the top 2017 draft picks as busts, believing teams will forever regret the players they selected. Peyton Manning and Antonio Brown didn't exactly have great rookie seasons. It's just too early to go that route with some of last year's draft selections.But on the flip side, some people get a little too excited about a player shining in his rookie year. Take recent Rookie of the Year winners like Robert Griffin III, Sam Bradford, Aldon Smith, Shawn Merriman, Vince Young and Percy Harvin. See? A great rookie year doesn't mean you're going to have a phenomenal NFL career. Not even close.When we take a look at how the 2017 rookies fared, you'll see a handful of them made immediate impacts. This included New Orleans Saints stars Marshon Lattimore and Alvin Kamara, who won DPOY and OPOY awards http://www.lionsauthorizedshops.com/authentic-jahlani-tavai-jersey , respectively. Deshaun Watson and Leonard Fournette also had excellent rookie seasons, but can all these guys really take it to another level, or was it simply beginners luck?The 2018 NFL season will be home to some breakout campaigns from second-year players, while others will struggle to build off the success of their first seasons. Here are 10 NFL sophomores that will break out in 2018, and 10 that will actually regress. KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) — Chiefs owner Clark Hunt said he was “deeply disturbed” by audio of Tyreek Hill discussing injuries to his 3-year-old son but declined to elaborate on the case citing an ongoing criminal investigation.The most visible face of the Chiefs’ ownership family, Hunt spoke briefly with reporters Saturday while the team was holding its annual draft party. He declined to discuss the team’s plans for Hill but did acknowledge that the star wide receiver’s legal problems are an embarrassment for the team.“It is obviously a tough situation for the organization,” Hunt said.”Hill has been suspended from all team-related activities after audio surfaced Wednesday in which he discusses abusing his son. Hill also told his fiancee, Crystal Espinal, that she should be “terrified” of him during an 11-minute discussion that took place in a Dubai airport.The audio surfaced one day after prosecutors declined to press charges against Hill following a domestic violence investigation. They said at the time that they were convinced a crime had occurred, but were unable to determine whether it was Hill or Espinal that hurt their son.Prosecutors reopened the case on Friday after receiving the audio from a local TV station.Hunt said the team was conducting its own investigation Kyler Murray Jersey , though it’s unclear how much information that Johnson County District Attorney’s office will make available. The NFL is also involved in the case, and it’s possible that Roger Goodell could place Hill on the commissioner’s exempt list.“We were deeply disturbed by the audio, which we heard on Thursday, and that’s why he’s not with the organization at this point,” Hunt said, “and we expect that will be the case until we have a chance to work through whatever information we are able to get.”There has been speculation that the Chiefs could release Hill once this weekend’s NFL draft is over, but Hunt declined to discuss those internal deliberations. He did say that “there are a couple of ongoing investigations relating to Tyreek and we’re going to have to let that process play out.”The Chiefs have been lambasted by fans league-wide for their history in domestic violence cases. In 2012, linebacker Jovan Belcher killed his girlfriend before driving to the team facility and committing suicide. And last year, the Chiefs quickly cut star running back Kareem Hunt when video surfaced of him shoving and kicking a woman in an Ohio hotel hallway.Hill was drafted by the Chiefs and then-GM John Dorsey despite numerous red flags. He had been kicked off the team at Oklahoma State after punching Espinal while she was pregnant, and many teams said off the record that the incident caused them to take Hill off their draft boards altogether.Dorsey and Chiefs coach Andy Reid insisted at the time that they did “due diligence” in selecting Hill, and that they were confident that he would make the most of a second chance.“Before you are given the opportunity for a second chance http://www.arizonacardinalsteamonline.com/byron-murphy-jersey , you better be doing the right things,” Reid said. “We have a great support system here for that, with quality people. We feel good that he is trying to right a wrong — a big wrong. It is a big wrong, but he is trying to do better and be a better person for it. That part, we feel very confident in.”Hunt said that the Chiefs have not necessarily changed how they vet players, whether in the draft or acquired through trades and free agency. But he did admit there is risk with every player.“Could be his playing ability. Could be things that distract him off the field as well as the trouble they get into,” Hunt said. “That’s a risk you take. It’s something that as a franchise we have to be willing to own when it doesn’t go the right way. That’s something I believe in.”
