The AFC South has its fair share of big name rookies this year, including a couple of top 10 draft selections and a quarterback expected to be the future of his new franchise.
Which of the rookies will ahve the best season? Here's a look at the top rookies in the AFC South.
Carlos Watkins, DT — Houston
A fourth-round pick by the Texans, Watkins has the chance to flourish in the Texans front seven. He might not need to start right away, but he'll work in the rotation and could be a long-term starter.
Quincy Wilson, CB — Indianapolis
Indianapolis grabbed Wilson in the middle of the second round, much lower than most expected he would go. He could start from day one.
Top 5 AFC Rookies:
Adoree' Jackson, CB — Tennessee
Jackson was the Titans second pick in the first round this year, and will immediately step into a starting role on the Tennessee defense. He will also be used in the return game, where he will get another chance to be an impact player.
Deshaun Watson, QB — Houston
Watson will be the starting quarterback at some point this season. Houston will likely try to keep him out at first, opting for Tom Savage, but eventually, they need to get their guy onto the field, and no one believes Savage is their guy moving forward.
Corey Davis, WR — Tennessee
The first wide receiver selected this year in the draft will give Marcus Mariota another big target this fall. Paired with Rishard Matthews and free agent signee Eric Decker, Davis will get his fair share of looks.
Malik Hooker, S — Indianapolis
The Colts had a ton of holes to fill on defense, and benefited in the draft when Hooker was still around at No. 15 despite being mocked in the top 10. Hooker will be an immediate starter and an immediate upgrade for the Colts.
Leonard Fournette, RB — Jacksonville
The fourth overall pick in the draft, Leonard Fournette is expected to be a workhorse back for the Jags this fall. Jacksonville's offense tooka huge step backwards last season after a promising 2015 campaign, and the team is hoping Fournette can help right the ship.
