Let’s get this out of the way first: a draft class shouldn’t be definitively judged after eight games, or even after just one season. We see plenty of situations—such as that of St. Louis Rams wide receiver Brian Quick—where a player can struggle for even a couple of seasons before emerging as a very impactful starter.

With that said, the Rams’ rookies now have half a season under their belt, which is enough to at least start the discussion about how they may end up faring long-term as NFL players. We thought it would be fun to gauge the progress of the Rams’ 2014 draft class and rank their performance over the season’s first eight games.

Remember, some of these players will still become more impactful as the season goes on and they become more comfortable in the system, while others may hit the rookie wall and see a drop-off. But for now, here are our rankings of this year’s Rams rookies.
