The Indianapolis Colts led all clubs with four All-Rookie selections with running back Jonathan Taylor, placekicker Rodrigo Blankenship, kick returner Isaiah Rodgers and special teamer Jordan Glasgow. The three Colts special teams unit honorees tied a PFWA record accomplished by the 2015 Seattle Seahawks and the 2016 Kansas City Chiefs.

The Baltimore Ravens, Carolina Panthers, Cleveland Browns, Kansas City Chiefs, Minnesota Vikings, Tampa Bay Buccaneers and the Chargers each had two selections. In all, 17 clubs are represented among the 27 players honored.

The All-Rookie team offense includes Herbert at quarterback, Jacksonville’s James Robinson and Taylor at running back, Pittsburgh’s Chase Claypool and Minnesota’s Justin Jefferson at wide receiver, Cleveland tight end Harrison Bryant, Denver center Lloyd Cushenberry III, Seattle’s Damien Lewis and New England’s Mike Onwenu at guard and Cleveland’s Jedrick Wills Jr. and Tampa Bay’s Tristan Wirfs at tackle.

The All-Rooke defense consists of defensive linemen Derrick Brown (Carolina), Raekwon Davis (Miami), Javon Kinlaw (San Francisco) and Young, linebackers Kenneth Murray Jr. (Los Angeles Chargers), Patrick Queen (Baltimore) and Isaiah Simmons (Arizona), Minnesota’s Cameron Dantzler and Kansas City’s L’Jarius Sneed at cornerback and Carolina’s Jeremy Chinn and Tampa Bay’s Antoine Winfield Jr. at safety.

Placekicker Blankenship, Kansas City punter Tommy Townsend, kick returner Rodgers, Baltimore punt returner James Proche II and special teamer Glasgow make up the All-Rookie special teams selections.
