Which NFL Player Will Win Offensive Rookie of the Year
The 2012-2013 NFL season is just around the corner (thankfully), which means that there is a ton to get prepared for. One of the things that we need to discuss here is which of the NFL rookies will take down the 2012-2013 Offensive Rookie of the Year Award. This award was won last year by eventualy Pro-Bowler Cam Newton, who had one heck of a rookie season. This year though, the field is wide open as we have quite a few rookie quarterbacks who will be starting pretty much from the word go, and some other players who have a serious shot to take it down as well. For all the sports bettors out there, you can also bet on this on many different sports betting sites, so make sure that you check the odds! Here are the possible players who I think could get the job done.
Yes, this one is pretty obvious. Andrew Luck has the chance to get the entire city on his back if he can help this team show up. It will take more than just three or four wins though, as Luck will have to be consistent this year because he's going to have quite a bit of competition for this award this year. He also doesn't have an incredibly talented offense around him to work with, so I'm not betting big on him here.
Robert Griffin III
This is my personal pick here to win the Rookie of the Year Award. Griffin has some solid talent around him, and he has the potential to make the Redskins improve quite a bit this season. While I still don't think that they are a playoff team, Griffin is talented enough to do a lot both through the air and with his feet as well.
If there is one player who put a serious push on Griffin then it is Richardson. Everyone says that Richardson is one of the best running back talents to come out of college and that he'll have an immediate impact. If he has even 3/4 as good as the hype surrounding him is then he should take down this award. The problem is that the Browns aren't a very strong team, and starting a rookie quarterback and a rookie running back at the same time is going to make both of their lives tough.
This one is my longshot pick. If you take a look at the other wide receivers who were drafted, most of them are missing one thing, a quarterback. Quick is an incredible athlete and will be on the field from the word go for the St. Louis Rams. On top of that though he also has Sam Bradford throwing him the ball, and Bradford will be looking to get over that sophomore slump. Quick will have some great odds as well if you bet on him, so keep an eye on this guy.
