Since Covid restrictions have been somewhat lifted, teams up and down the country have started their recruitment for new players. With the announcement of the new league structures, rookie and taster sessions are once again in full flow. In this article I’m going to highlight some of the typical rookie characters you will likely encounter when you’re back at training. 

THE FANBOY

This is that unimposing newbie that knows absolutely everything there is to know about the NFL. It’s just a shame his physique is more cut out for Minecraft than football. This chap may be top of his fantasy league but they will also be bottom of the depth chart. He can remember every draft pick since 2005 but he won’t remember the snap count. His attitude is spot on off the field but he is ultimately useless on it. 

THE PROTOTYPE

Unlike the previously mentioned Fanboy, this guy looks the business! He clearly knows his way around the weight room and has speed on his side. The only trouble is, he doesn’t have a clue how to play. His only previous experience of football is from one of those YouTube highlight compilations with the terrible background music. He wouldn’t look out of place in a GB Lions uniform but he really has no clue what he’s doing. Certainly a guy your coaches will want to keep around, and someone that has all the physical tools to develop into something special. A good project for any decent coach. 

THE UNIT

As this player gets out the car and starts walking towards the practice field, the OC & DC already begin fighting over him. He’s a natural born lineman the size of a vending machine. Can he even play? It doesn’t matter, these creatures are rare in the world of Britball and everyone loves a big guy even if he’s only there to look intimidating.
