Before every NFL season begins fans prognosticate as to which newcomer will be crowned the NFL Offensive Rookie of the Year before a single down is ever played. In some seasons there is a clear cut favorite - a can't miss offensive star that comes along once in a generation. In others such as this NFL season there is a more open field that presents a "wait and see" scenario that can change from Sunday to Sunday. In any instance the NFL Offensive Rookie of the Year must put up statistical numbers to support their selection, and here are a few of the possible winners in the 2011 NFL season:
Cam Newton - Although Newton was undoubtedly the stud of college football last year, it's a big jump from winning an NCAA football championship to starting for a really bad NFL team. The Jacksonville Jaguars had no rusher or receiver with anywhere near 1,000 yards last season that can help Newton in his rookie campaign. While he may show spots of brilliance this year expect Newton to get a 'baptism by fire" as he learns to adapt to life in the NFL.
Julio Jones - Drafted by Atlanta with the 6th overall pick Jones certainly has the necessary skills to be the NFL Offensive Rookie of the Year. The only obstacle in the way of Jones is that there is only one ball used in a game, and with the likes of teammates Roddy White, Tony Gonzalez and Michael Turner his touches may be quite limited. Expect Julio Jones to shine and thrive this season, but on a less frequent basis than he would on a slightly less talented team.
A.J. Green - With Terrell Owens and Chad Ochocinco gone from the Cincinnati roster the stage is set for Green to become an instant star in the NFL. If rookie quarterback Andy Dalton is anywhere near as good as he was in college Green can have a huge rookie campaign, and must be strongly considered as the 2011 NFL Offensive Rookie of the Year.
Mark Ingram - Although his draft stock fell somewhat resulting in being the 28th overall selection by New Orleans, Ingram is in a good position to be the 2011 NFL Offensive Rookie of the Year. While his teammates Pierre Thomas and Darren Sproles are are good running backs, neither has ever been their team's main man for an entire season. The future is indeed bright for Mark Ingram especially as the Saints compete for the NFC South division title.
Blaine Gabbert - The Jacksonville Jaguars are so impressed with Gabbert that they released starter David Garrard just days before their opener. Another rookie in a "sink or swim" situation, Gabbert has the talent to rise to the occasion.
