The Packers have arguably the best cornerback tandem in the NFL with Jaire Alexander and Eric Stokes, and Jefferson ran around them and the rest of the Packers’ defense all game long. Jefferson now has 15 career games with 100-plus receiving yards, which is tied for second-most with Kupp since 2020 (behind only Adams). Jefferson’s coming in hot for that No. 1 wide receiver ranking.
Carr also listed Eagles receiver A.J. Brown at the 15th spot. Brown recorded 155 receiving yards against the Detroit Lions in Week 1, with 128 of those coming in the first half.
RG Ed Ingram Ranked Fourth on Pro Football Focus’ Top 15 Rookies from Week 1
Week 1 marked the NFL debuts for rookies across the league, including Vikings right guard Ed Ingram, who became just the second rookie guard to start in a season opener in 62 seasons of Vikings football (Marcus Johnson in 2005 was the first).
Michael Renner of Pro Football Focus recently ranked his Top 15 rookies from Week 1. He said Ingram, a second-round pick for Minnesota, was the fourth-highest ranked rookie in Week 1 with a mark of 79.3. Renner wrote:
While Ingram took his lumps in pass protection, he handled himself exquisitely in the ground game. He allowed five pressures in pass protection for a 31.2 grade in that regard yet earned an 87.4 run-blocking grade on the day to lead all rookies.
Renner also placed Philadelphia defensive tackle Jordan Davis seventh on the list with a score of 74.3. The 13th overall pick of the draft played 22 defensive snaps for the Eagles.
