Week 17 NFL Rookie Power Rankings: Bosa, Allen limited while White is soaring up the board

The weekly NFL rookie power rankings are essentially a list of the best young wide receivers and defensive front seven players this season. Both position groups have delivered in a big way. With one week left in the regular season, CBS Sports is close to naming their 2019 Rookies of the Year.?

With that in mind, here's a look at the latest edition of our weekly cumulative rookie rankings.?

Week 16 Rookie Rankings
Nick Bosa San Francisco 49ers DE
Bosa got to the quarterback a few times so he impacted the game even though his stat sheet will not impress. Stats: 41 tackles, nine sacks, one forced fumble, two fumble recoveries, three pass deflections, and one interception
Josh Allen Jacksonville Jaguars DE
Allen also recorded two quarterback hits but otherwise just one tackle. Quarterbacks are starting to get the ball out a little quicker with these young edge rushers bearing down. Stats: 40 tackles, 10 sacks, two forced fumbles
Josh Jacobs Oakland Raiders RB
Jacobs was inactive this week while he continues to nurse a shoulder injury. He has shown his value when healthy but the position traditionally suffers a lot more injuries due to the sheer number of hits they take over the course of a season. Stats: 242 carries for 1,150 yards, seven touchdowns; 20 receptions for 166 yards
Erik McCoy New Orleans Saints C
The Saints' offensive line continues to get the job done as they surge towards the end of the regular season.
Kyler Murray Arizona Cardinals QB
Murray only attempted 18 passes but he also rushed for 40 yards. His athleticism forces teams to stay honest. Stats: 323 of 500 passes completed for 3,397 yards, 18 touchdowns, and 10 interceptions; 91 carries for 544 yards, four touchdowns
Terry McLaurin Washington Redskins WR
McLaurin ranks 14th in the NFL with seven touchdown receptions and 31st in receiving yards with another strong week. Stats: 58 receptions for 919 yards, seven touchdowns
Devin Bush Pittsburgh Steelers LB
Bush has solidified that linebacker unit this season. The group is communicating and playing at a higher level. His stats from this week won't blow anyone away. Stats: 97 tackles, one sack, two interceptions, one forced fumble, four fumble recoveries, four pass deflections
A.J. Brown Tennessee Titans WR
Brown had a pedestrian day against the Saints through the air but he showed his versatility with a 49-yard carry. Stats: 48 receptions for 927 yards, seven touchdowns; 3 carries for 60 yards, a touchdown
Maxx Crosby Oakland Raiders DE
Crosby has played really good football but the meteoric pace he set in the middle of the season has dissipated. Stats: 42 tackles, 8.5 sacks, three forced fumbles, three pass deflections
Elgton Jenkins Green Bay Packers G
Green Bay is hardly recognizable from the team that went 6-9-1 and that is probably a good thing. Jenkins has been a vital part of their new offense.
D.K. Metcalf Seattle Seahawks WR
Metcalf had just one target in a loss to the Cardinals, which was surprising because Seattle was forced to throw more with a bevy of injuries to the running back position. Stats: 52 receptions for 819 yards, six touchdowns
Deebo Samuel San Francisco 49ers WR
The 49ers use Samuel in a very creative manner. He had three carries and four receptions against the Rams. Stats: 52 receptions for 700 yards, three touchdowns; 12 carries for 126 yards, two touchdowns
Darius Slayton New York Giants WR
Slayton produced a goose egg this week on two targets and left the game early with an injury. His eight touchdowns on the year are still the most by a rookie receiver. Stats: 44 receptions for 690 yards, eight touchdowns
Devin White Tampa Bay Buccaneers LB
White had eight tackles and a fumble recovery but fell just short to the Texans. Bruce Arians has done a great job with that young team this season. Stats: 86 tackles, 2.5 sacks, three forced fumbles, three fumble recoveries, one interception, and three pass deflections
Chauncey Gardner-Johnson New Orleans Saints DB
Gardner-Johnson wears a lot of hats for the Saints defense. He had a fumble recovery in the team's come from behind win over the Titans. Stats: 47 tackles, one forced fumble, one fumble recovery, one interception, and eight pass deflections
