Football Predictions for Rookie of the Year

As the preseason winds down, and the NFL regular season is about to begin, many are looking far into the future of football and making their predictions based on current performances. This is where the experts at NFL.com have come up with their very own predictions for three of the biggest awards that are given out at the end of each season. These three include: MVP, Defensive Player of the Year, and the Rookies of the Year. Here is what the experts have predicted:

NFL.com Expert MVP Defensive Player of the Year Rookies of the Year
Gregg Rosenthal Aaron Rodgers J.J. Watt Marcus Mariota

Stephone Anthony

Kevin Patra Andrew Luck J.J. Watt Amari Cooper

Randy Gregory

Conor Orr Andrew Luck Justin Houston Jameis Winston

Shane Ray

Chris Wesseling Andrew Luck J.J. Watt Ameer Abdullah

Vic Beasley

Dan Hanzus Ben Roethlisberger J.J. Watt Devin Funchess

Leonard Williams

Marc Sessler Andrew Luck J.J. Watt Amari Cooper

Danny Shelton

It would seem that most of these sports analysts are placing a high value on certain players, like J.J. Watt and Andrew Luck, while they are having a much harder time agreeing on which Rookie’s will get the award. The main reason it is hard to know which Rookie will have a better season is due to the fact that they have no previous experience in pro football, and have to base it all on their current performances during the Preseason and their training camps.

For players that are already familiar with the NFL and have had longer careers in the sport, it is much easier to know from their previous season performance, as well as how good they are doing in the Preseason. Although, I wouldn’t put much stock into how a team or player is doing during the preseason, as it is basically friendly games between teams, another way to practice through experience.

Once the season starts, be sure to check on your favorite sportsbooks to see how good or bad the odds are for some of these players in the football futures. It may be worth placing a small bet that could pay off once the season ends.
