2013 NFL Offensive Rookie of the Year Candidates


Training camp is approaching and all 32 NFL teams are going to try to figure out what it will take for them to win the Super Bowl. All 32 teams will be looking to their rookies to make some sort of impact in 2013 in an attempt to improve on the previous season and win a World Series. Last year, Andrew Luck, Robert Griffin III, Russell Wilson, Alfred Morris, and Doug Martin all made huge impacts to help their teams improve and for most of them, make the playoffs while also contending for Offensive Rookie of the Year. So, which players could follow in their footsteps in their rookie seasons?

St Louis Rams WR Tavon Austin
Tavon Austin is a playmaker and that is something that is hard to teach if not impossible which is why the Rams traded up to get Austin. Austin will immediately be one of the fastest players in the NFL which will give the Rams the playmaker they need at wide receiver for Sam Bradford. Austin can work well out of the slot with his speed being able to take advantage of opposing secondaries like Pierre Garcon. Austin also has the playmaking ability on the outside like a Randall Cobb which is probably why Austin went so high in the draft. Austin also has the talent to be a great return man like Cobb on top of being a big threat in the passing game. Tavon Austin clearly enters the 2013 NFL season as the frontrunner to be the Offensive Rookie of the Year.
