NFL Preseason 2015: Report Card Grades for All 1st-Round Rookies After Week 1Dan Hope of BleacherReport.com

"After months of preparation on their part and hype from everyone else, NFL rookies finally had the opportunity to take the field for live game action this past week as the league had its first of four full slates of preseason games for all 32 teams.While the box scores of preseason outings are ultimately meaningless and forgettable, the games constitute important experience for young players, especially rookies. As such, a majority of the 2015 NFL draft’s top picks—including No. 1 overall pick Jameis Winston and No. 2 overall pick Marcus Mariota—received a significant portion of playing time in Week 1.Eight first-round picks were unable to play in their preseason openers because of injuries. We have graded the other 24 based on how well (or not well) they performed within their allotments of snaps in Week 1."

Braman tough enough for some WWE comparisonsBob Grotz of DelcoTimes.com

"PHILADELPHIA >> Eagles special-teams soldier Bryan Braman was having a good game Sunday, although nothing really to write home about.One play later it was epic.Tearing a page from the Brian Dawkins playbook, Braman blew off a fake handoff, grabbed Colts quarterback Bryan Bennett, and as the football rolled free, tossed the beleaguered 211-pound rookie back over his head WWE style. Just like that, #SuplexCity was born.“There’s a lot of people blowing me up on my Twitter feed, my Instagram feed about it,” Braman said after practice Tuesday. “They’re talking about WWE Tough Enough, tagging different wrestlers like Taz and Brock Lesnar and guys that are well known for being brutes in the ring. Really I didn’t even know that I had stripped the ball. At that point it was just to prevent his momentum from going forward and getting any extra yards. I just kind of took his feet away from him.”"

Matt Tobin competed at RG — by playing LTPhil Sheridan of ESPN.com

"PHILADELPHIA — It wasn’t that surprising that Andrew Gardner started at right guard against the Indianapolis Colts Sunday. Philadelphia Eagles offensive line coach Jeff Stoutland has been rotating players at that vacant position, and it was Gardner’s turn.“He just rotated,” coach Chip Kelly said. “It wasn’t a separation (from the pack). I think it was just who we had in there the last day or so. We are going to give all those guys an opportunity before we make a decision on what’s going to go on there.”The bigger surprise was that Matt Tobin, one of the prime competitors for the right guard job, played 60 percent of the offensive plays — at tackle. It was unclear whether that was merely an anomaly created by Stoutland’s rotation system, or if Tobin is being prepared to be a swing player."
