Which rookies for next year, college players now, will make the biggest fantasy impact next year? I know it depends alot on which team they end up with, but who could you see yourself drafting in next year's fantasy draft? Eli Manning and Chris Perry come to mind for me.

So much depends on who drafts these players, and if indeed they come out, but I'd target Fitzgerald obviously. WR rooks have been increasing their production in recent years - after the top 12 or so WR's are gone, grab Larry as a #2 or #3 and it might pay off.
I like Perry so far as the RB if he comes out. Clarett can't be ignored. there might be a legal issue of both Clarett and Fitzgerald coming out I think.
I really haven't thought too much, but Fitz is obviously the WR stud, and Perry was solid in a big game today.
If Perry becomes pimped as the next rookie RB to have, then I pass on him. Too many 'top' rookie RB's are not the rookie RB who excels. Onterrio Smith this year proves the rule. Willie Green/DeShaun Foster (Clinton Portis), Curtis Enis (Fred Taylor), Ricky William (Edgerrin james) are just a few examples of the higher touted RB's faltering while a lesser pimped back excelled. Don't burn the early pick on the rookie RB everyone is in love with. Fitz might be worth a 6th rounder. I think I can get better, proven players before that. Rookies make an increasing impact, but don't tie your fantasy hopes to their bandwagons.

Even if fitzgerald is somehow allowed to leave early, I think that guys like Roy Williams, Rashaud Woods, and Mike Williams would have a bigger immediate impact in the NFL.
Fitz is a great college WR, but those other guys all have that tall, big build that has "red zone target" written all over it. Not to mention that fitz is a sophomore and thus very young, while Roy Williams and Rashaud Woods are seniors.
