NFL Offensive Rookie of the Year
It has been a long time since a rookie has had such a league wide impact as has Arizona Cardinals quarterback Kyler Murray. What is most remarkable about Murray that he entered the 2018 college football season as the new starting quarterback of the Oklahoma Sooners. In fact, there were considerable doubts about Murray being able to replace OU’s 2017 Heisman Trophy winning quarterback Baker Mayfield. Further, Murray was already signed by the Oakland Athletics for what was expected to be a lucrative Major League Baseball career. But Murray flourished under Oklahoma mastermind head coach Lincoln Riley and won his own Heisman Trophy while leading the Sooners to the College Football Playoff. As a result, he flipped the script as the unexpected top pick of the 2019 NFL Draft. Now Murray begins his pro career as the favorite to win the 2019 NFL Offensive Rookie of the Year Award.

2019 NFL Offensive Rookie of the Year Overview
Detroit Lions running back Mel Farr won the first ever NFL Offensive Rookie of the Year Award in 1967 with his teammate Earl McCullouch winning the award the very next season as a wide receiver. Overall such historic figures as John Brockington, Calvin Hill, Franco Harris, Chuck Foreman, Tony Dorsett, Earl Campbell, Marcus Allen, Barry Sanders, Emmitt Smith, Marshall Faulk, Randy Moss, Ben Roethlisberger, Cam Newton, and Todd Gurley have won this prestigious honor.
Quarterback Kyler Murray – Arizona Cardinals
When you get past the understandable hype about Kyler Murray the fact remains that many veteran scouts and coaches have grave doubts about his size and durability in the NFL, especially on a terrible Cardinals team that finished 3-13 last year. An ugly reality check is likely and Murray could prove to be a significant overlay.
Quarterback Dwayne Haskins – Washington Redskins
In just one season as the full-time starter for the Ohio State Buckeyes, quarterback Dwayne Haskins cashed in as the 15th pick of the first round in the 2019 NFL Draft. Haskins was touted as the next quarterback of the New York Giants, his hometown team, but instead ended up with as a potential victim with the dysfunctional Washington Redskins. The fact that Haskins dropped further in the draft is a significant concern but that is offset by the fact that he was Big Ten Player of the Year Award winner in 2018.
Running Back Josh Jacobs – Oakland Raiders
Josh Jacobs will be going from the penthouse of the Alabama Crimson Tide to the outhouse of the Oakland Raiders, who finished 4-12 last year. It is interesting to note that Jacobs never ran for more than 640 yards in a single season for the Tide. And was never even as much as an honorable mention for SEC honors. Can anyone say, “reach?”
Running Back Miles Sanders – Philadelphia Eagles
Now former Penn State Nittany Lions running back Miles Sanders could be the best value and sleeper pick on the board. Sanders ran for 1274 yards and 5.8 yards per carry with nine touchdowns for Penn State last year and was named Penn State’s Most Valuable Offensive Player. Philadelphia had one of the worst ground attacks last year finishing 28th in the league for that category. Everything is set up for Sanders to hit the ground running.
