2015 All-Rookie Team (Mid-Season Report)
By Keith Van Wagner
Special to gzl-football.com

Half-way thru the season, below are the top performing rookies at each position. While there were many excellent candidates, these players shown above the rest.

Note that in listing a player's overall draft position, it appears the GZL site doesn't have a complete draft list in the GM section, so there may be some discrepancies. What's interesting is how so many of the rookies were drafted as the first, second or third in their respective positions. Some good scouting out there!
