There were a few immediate starters taken on the first two days, along with a few prospects who will need more time to develop before they see the field.

We asked our panel to evaluate the new crop of rookies, answering questions about the quarterbacks, their favorite picks, which team's rookie class could make the biggest impact and more. Check back every day this week to see more questions and answers:

Which team's rookie class will make the biggest impact in 2021?

Matt Bowen, NFL analyst: Jets. Their first four picks should contribute immediately. Zach Wilson, who has high-end arm talent and movement ability, is their Week 1 starter at quarterback. USC's Alijah Vera-Tucker could start as a guard or tackle on the offensive front, while wide receiver Elijah Moore and running back Michael Carter both have scheme-specific traits to fit in Mike LaFleur's new offensive system.
