Here are five other rookies who have impressed in practice.
Martellus Bennett, TE, Texas A&M: The athletic 6'7" 244-pounder (who will also play basketball) is an instant upgrade; returning starter Boone Stutz had only 11 catches in '04.
Michael Oher, OL, Ole Miss: New coach Ed Orgeron called the 6'5", 330-pound mauler the cornerstone of his first recruiting class. Expect Oher to start at right guard.
Rashad Jennings, RB, Pitt (below): The 6'1", 235-pound bruiser enrolled in January, went through spring practice and appears to have locked up the starting job.
Kenny Phillips, S, Miami: The 6'2" 200-pounder has shown off his playmaking ability and vows to lead the Hurricanes in interceptions this season.
Patrick Turner, WR, USC: At 6'5", 220 pounds, Turner is a matchup nightmare who likely will be the Trojans' No. 3 receiver this fall.
