    With three quarters of the 2018 regular season in the books, former NFL scout Daniel Jeremiah has reviewed his notes from the first 13 weeks to rank the top 25 rookies in the league today.

    NOTE: Arrows reflect changes from DJ's rookie rankings at midseason.

    1

    Saquon Barkley

    RB
    Giants
    1

    Barkley has all but wrapped up the Offensive Rookie of the Year award. He's been a force as a runner and receiver.
    2

    Derwin James

    S
    Chargers
    1

    James has the versatility to line up all over the field and he continues to make "wow" plays on a weekly basis.
    3

    Darius Leonard

    LB
    Colts

    Leonard has tremendous range, instincts and production. He's earned a Pro Bowl invitation with his play this fall.
    4

    Bradley Chubb

    OLB
    Broncos
    5

    Chubb has already produced double-digit sacks (10) and he's continuing to improve against the run.

    5

    Baker Mayfield

    QB
    Browns
    6

    Mayfield has brought life to the Browns' offense and organization. He has been the best of the rookie QBs by a wide margin.
    6

    Leighton Vander Esch

    LB
    Cowboys
    15

    Vander Esch has a unique blend of size, athleticism and physicality. He has been a key to the Cowboys' recent surge.
    7

    Denzel Ward

    CB
    Browns
    3

    Ward doesn't get challenged as much after starting the season with a bang. He has elite cover skills.
    8

    Phillip Lindsay

    RB
    Broncos
    3

    Lindsay is explosive. He finds a way to create space when there doesn't seem to be any available.

    Look Barkley is good, I get it, and he has all the hype. However, all but wrapped up is a bit of an insult to Lindsay. IMO Lindsay will outrush and have more TDs than Saquon by seasons end. I still expect Barkley to win. As for Chubb, I mean I don't know why he doesn't have more hype. Yes he misses assignments from time to time, but man has he had a huge impact.

    Barkley will win OROY because he's been very good and has the hype of a 2nd-overall pick, not to mention more touches as a workhorse. He already has 41 more carries than Lindsay and 74 receptions against 25 for Lindsay. There is no way an undrafted player like Lindsay, with his average of 12 carries per game, will win this award over the #2 pick.

    I also believe the only way Chubb wins DROY is if he either ties or breaks the rookie record for sacks. Otherwise, they will give the award to James, Vander Esch or Leonard.
