Why 2nd-Year NFL Players Tend to Make Big Leaps (http://bleacherreport.com/articles/1953863-why-second-year-nfl-players-tend-to-make-big-leaps)
Throughout their first seasons in the NFL, the majority of rookies are reminded (daily) that they arenít on scholarship anymore. The game is faster, the demands are much greater and the talent level surpasses anything theyíve seen on the field in the SEC, Big Ten, Pac-12, ACC, etc.

And although Eddie Lacy, Keenan Allen and Sheldon Richardson produced in their first year on the field, the upcoming offseason is crucial for players who struggled to show consistency and pro-level technique as rookies in 2013.

Today, letís discuss why second-year players can make the necessary developmental jump by taking a professional approach this offseason in the weight room, on the field and in their film study...
...
Based on my experience in the NFL, you should expect these second-year players to be much more productive in 2014.

Whether that is the time spent training with functional football movements, a dedication to improving technique or the ability to make the corrections off the tape, these guys should arrive at offseason programs around the league this spring prepared to play ball.

No more 40-yard dashes or combine prep. Itís time to be a pro now. And the players who focus on improving their overall game will be ready to produce at the NFL level this season.

Does that mean the sophomore jinx is a myth?
