The 2015 NFL season has reached its halfway stage and things are starting to take shape nicely. There are a handful of teams who look like genuine Super Bowl contenders, some others who seem to have written off their campaigns already and even more who are gearing up to fight tooth and nail over the following eight weeks to keep their hopes alive.

The following eight are arguably the most impressive rookies to have shown themselves in the 2015 season so far and look set to have a big impact on the rest of the campaign and on the league for years to come.
