Default 06 Offensive/Defensive Rookies of the Year

o.k. its not to early for this post. on the heels of the draft, who will win the accolades?

offensive- deangello williams. this offense has made 4th string running backs look like studs. if he gets the shot c. williams got last year, he should easilly outpreform cadillacs rookie year.

defensive- manny lawson. i just like this dudes potential and upside. kind of reminds me of a defensive version of matt jones last season. with nolan and singletary as his coaches, and nothing to lose, it could be no holds barred for him.

Nice topic tony!

On offense I am going to agree with your selection of DeAngelo Williams - and for pretty much the same reasons - that line is comparable to Denvers in getting excellent return from 4th choice RB's through to converted FB's.

On defense my No.1 candidate is A.J. Hawk - non-stop competitor who wont be short of playing time or tackles in Green Bay.

offense: Reggie Buch he will become a work horse for the Saints and carry the ball around 15 to 20 times a game for around 150 to 200 yards a game.

defense: A.J Hawk not much to say other then the QB's of the NFC better watch out there is a Hawk on the loose in Green Bay

hahahaha

15-20 carries, man Reggie really is gonna be a workhorse!

If you think Reggie's getting 150-200 rushing yards a game on 15-20 carries, you're crazy.

If DeAngelo Williams starts for Denver, I don't know how you can't say it'll be him. I also like AJ Hawk as DROTY.

Matt Jones didn't win offensive rookie of the year ;)

I'd pick Leinart and Hawk. Warner will have the same thing happen to him in New York, only difference is that Matt will step up with the plethera of weapons he is provided with. AJ is just an athlete that will make any play possible, much like Merriman of last season.

c. williams did (hence the comparrison to d. williams). lawson/ jones comparrison was that of their size and freakish capabilities. i cant argue against hawk. i think that is who will be projected to win it. and it would be a bit of a reach to compare lawson to last years defensive r o t y, s. merriman. but it sounds like he definitely has that potential, especially with nolan and singletary coaching him. the opportunities will be there if you look at j. petersons vacated role.

actually its probably retarded to pick anyone other than reggie bush. i remember all the skeptics who questioned whether l. tomlinsons game would translate to the nfl and everyone has been skeptical of lt,s preformance behind san diegos pourous line.

anyways d. williams will play for carolina, whos ability to churn out 100 yd rushing games despite who steps in, is comparable to denvers.
