The 2011 Fantasy Football season is just around the corner. If you’re looking for Rookie Rankings, look no further! It’s hard to judge which rookies will have an impact on their respective teams so let us give you a little nudge in the right direction. THESE RANKINGS ARE COURTESY OF BEASTORBUST.COM.

1. AJ Green – Bengals WR
Big, athletic WR that could be a dangerous threat for the Bengals. Potential for an instant impact.
2. Julio Jones – Falcons WR
Neck and neck with Green for top WR honors, just as big, just as athletic. Will make a dangerous duo with Roddy White.
3. Mark Ingram – Saints RB
A solid RB prospect that runs with power. The question remains if he will be durable enough to be a 3-down back on Sundays, but he’ll get the opportunity in New Orleans.
4. Jonathan Baldwin – Chiefs WR
Massive upside to go along with his massive frame. Exciting size/speed combination that will have Chiefs fans drooling. Should compliment Bowe nicely.
5. Cam Newton – Panthers QB
Massively athletic Heisman winner with sky high upside. His only limitation is his dedication, but the Panthers are going to challenge him early.
6. Mikel Leshoure – Lions RB
A thick, tackle-breaking RB has excellent speed for his size. Will share a backfield with the speedy but injury prone Jahvid Best.
7. Ryan Williams – Cardinals RB
Has the measurables to carve out a significant role on Sundays. Most talented of Cardinals trio of backs.
8. Greg Little – Browns WR
An intriguing height-weight combo with ridiculous upside. Could be Browns WR1 in 2011. Compliments Colt McCoy’s short passing attack.
9. Daniel Thomas – Dolphins RB
Big bodied RB with complete back skillset. Could be instant impact.
10. Blaine Gabbert – Jaguars QB
Coming from a spread offense, there are always going to be questions. Gabbert has way more arm and upside than fellow Mizzou Alum Chase Daniel. Will sit and learn behind David Garrard, at least for most of 2011. That scenario would be the best for him.
11. Randall Cobb – Packers WR
Speed to burn with sticky hands that make scouts drool. Buried on the Packers depth chart…for now.
12. Jake Locker – Titans QB
Locker may have been a Top 5 pick had he come out last season, but he stayed in school and his stock has since dropped. It still worked out as he landed with the Titans 8th overall. He needs work, but could be a Beast in time.
13. L. Hankerson – Redskins WR
Lost in the shuffle? Hankerson has above average size and speed, and might just make the biggest impact of any rookie receiver. Overall upside likely limited.
14. Torrey Smith – Ravens WR
A solid prospect that will have to prove he is more than just a deep threat. His ridiculous speed will be an asset to the Ravens immediately.
15. Alex Green – Packers RB
Can catch the ball out of the backfield and find the endzone from short yardage, Green is a versatile big body RB and that is his ticket to the NFL. And your Dynasty roster.
16. D. Murray – Cowboys RB
Big time collegiate production with over 50 rushing TD’s and over 150 receptions. A solid inside rusher that catches the ball well. He’ll need to carve out a role with the Cowboys.
17. Colin Kaepernick – 49ers QB
Ideal size and athletic ability make him intriguing, deep ball and accuracy need to improve.
18. Kyle Rudolph – Vikings TE
This crop is not going to have the impact that the 2010 class did, but Rudolph leads this group and has Beast upside. Should push aside Shiancoe by 2012.
19. Shane Vereen – Patriots RB
Not the playmaker Jahvid Best was in college, but he does have enough speed and the right build to make an impact as a complimentary back for the Patriots.
20. Kendall Hunter – 49ers RB
A smallish back in the mold of MJD or Ray Rice. Plays with a chip on his shoulder. Could surprise.
21. Titus Young – Lions WR
An explosive playmaker that can stretch the field. Size a concern. Not as dynamic as DJax.
22. Edmond Gates – Dolphins WR
Raw prospect with lightening speed. Needs to hone skills, but big upside here. Some say he’s a more polished wideout than former Abiline Christian wideout Johnny Knox. Downside is he’s entering the league at 25 years old.
23. Tandon Doss – Ravens WR
Doss is a big wideout that uses his body well and has speed to make plays downfield. Could develop into a very reliable threat.
24. Christian Ponder – Vikings QB
Injuries are a huge question mark. Skill set may outshine those concerns and he’ll get a shot in 2011 with the Vikings. A low ceiling.
25. Andy Dalton – Bengals QB
Solid arm, solid build and a big jump as a junior make Dalton an intriguing prospect.
26. Jerrel Jernigan – Giants WR
Pure athleticism combined with advanced WR skills. Only downfall is size, but Jernigan could be special.
27. Lance Kendricks – Rams TE
In the mold of Owen Daniels he is an intruiging prospect because of his near complete TE skill set. A shifty runner.
28. Greg Salas – Rams WR
Similar to Pettis, Salas could be a solid possession type.
29. Austin Pettis – Rams WR
Playmaker that could have an instant impact if he can crack the Rams lineup.
30. Vincent Brown – Chargers WR
Enough size and speed to be a possession type. Good situation.
31. Jordan Todman – Chargers RB
Versatile and ultra-athletic RB. Heavy workload in college could be a liability.
32. Ryan Mallett – Patriots QB
Excellent landing spot for Mallett, who will learn from some of the best. Not sure when he’ll get a chance to play however.
33. Taiwan Jones – Raiders RB
Likely the fastest player in this year’s class, however numerous injuries remain a concern.
34. Roy Helu – Redskins RB
Late round talent who could be fantasy relevant in 2011.
35. Tyrod Taylor – Ravens QB/WR
Taylor may not be looked at as a top QB prospect, but he does have upside as a back-up or possibly as a wideout.
36. Da’Rel Scott – Giants RB
High character RB that is super athletic. Former track athlete has speed to burn. Broken arm in his junior season hurt his stock some. Pay attention to his landing spot.
37. Delone Carter – Colts RB
Gives the Colts a tough inside runner, something they do not currently have on their roster.
38. Jordan Cameron – Browns TE
An interesting prospect that has watched his stock rise this draft season.
39. Jacquizz Rodgers – Falcons RB
The diminutive playmaker might go the way of Dexter McCluster and Darren Sproles at the next level. He’ll be exciting to watch, but his upside may be limited.
40. Niles Paul – Redskins WR
Late developer who’s skills are far better than his stat line suggests.
41. Bilal Powell – Jets RB
Big and strong, Powell could be a TD machine on Sundays.
42. Luke Stocker – Bucs TE
Boosted stock with nice Senior Bowl, Stocker is a complete TE.
43. Kris Durham – Seahawks WR
Short on collegiate production, Durham does have potential as a possession type in the NFL.
44. Julius Thomas – Broncos TE
Could find his way onto an NFL roster if he keeps impressing.
45. Johnny White – Bills RB
A deep sleeper in this years draft that may provide solid dividends when you land him late in your Dynasty Rookie Drafts.
46. Rob Housler – Cardinals TE
Great landing spot for an excellent TE prospect. Beast potential with development.
47. Cecil Shorts – Jags WR
A developmental slot receiver that was quite productive at Mount Union.
48. D.J. Williams – Packers TE
Keep an eye on D.J. His stock is rising and in the right spot, could quickly emerge into a fantasy asset.
49. Evan Royster – Redskins RB
Solid potential, likely as a complimentary back with a 5.7 yard per carry average at Penn State.
50. Virgil Green -Broncos TE
Big time upside here on this longshot athletic freak.
