Ok so I want to have a look at potential awards for the season round the leage and in ATL. Primarily the following awards.
MVP, ROY, RBOY (Rookie Bust of the Year), MIP
Then the ATL MIP and ROY
MVP - Aarron Rodgers - He has the tallent, the weapons around him and with a healthy running game to give him some slack, he can get an MVP trophy, become cemented as an elite QB ushering in the new generation of QB's
ROY - Julio Jones - He has the best situation to succeed starting Day 1, he is a top 10 pick playing besides a top 5 WR and with a franchise QB throwing to him. With Jenkins and White as mentors he has all the pieces to have an an amazing rookie season, he just needs to make them fit.
RBOY* - Cam Newton - Regardless of what he will turn out to be, he isnt good enough to be a star QB yet, he's no Bradford or Flacco or Ryan, especially with the Panthers missing pieces all over the place, Newton will not save the franchise this year.
MIP - Gerrald McCoy - Tampa's DT had a rough year because he was compared to Ndamukong Suh, and being on one of the weakest defensive lines in the league didnt help. However with the addition of Da'Quan Bowers and Adrian Clayborn, there D-line improves alot and McCoy should get less focus by the offense, allowing him for more production.
Donnie Avery is also a guy to look for, the Rams WR had a season ending injury last year and missed out on Bradford, but before then Avery was a solid player on an average team, that showed flashes of briliance (6 receptions for 163 yards in his rookie year against NE). With Bradford at the helm, Avery is good enough to become a 1,000 yard a season reciever.
The ATL ROY - Other then Julio Jones, Jacquizz Rodgers is a great compliment player to Turner, he is fast and not fragile, he can keep our running mentality of wearing the defense down, without fear of injury and regardless of Snelling leaving or staying, Rodgers will get game time and will be a factor.
The ATL MIP - Kroy Beirmann has the tallent but just not the numbers, if the Falcons don't get a starting DE in FA then Beirmann will retain his starting LE job and should become more of a threat. He had lots of hits on the QB but was a tiny bit too slow in taking him down. With another year of practise I hope he can step it up and get 7-10 sacks this season.
Harry Douglas again is a player who could break out, last year he played poorly compared to expectations due to his injury recovery. Now he should be past his injury and ready to contribute again. He will always be needed as a slot man and should step his game up this year to be a proper option in the pass game
*The RBOY is for production this year, regardless on career performance, I am judging this on Rookie year impact.
