It's the middle of May, and wouldn't you know, all the rookies have made their first NFL noise. It's pretty exciting to think that all those young guys will be trying their hearts out to fill spots that will be few and far between on the Falcons roster this year.
I wish I was able to see them, but it's likely I won't be able to make it down until later on this summer. In any case, we have a bunch of rookies on our team. Now, it's your chance to predict who you think will be the rookie of the year. If you win, you get bragging rights. Or a high five. Or an all-expenses-paid trip in your dreams. More likely than not, I'll forget this post ever existed.
In any case, I think my ROTY is going to be Cody Pearcy. I would love to see Quizz's brother make the team, but I feel like of all the speedy guys we've acquired, Pearcy will be the one we keep due to his absolutely insane speed. Brandon Banks is similarly sized and he made it happen for the 'Skins last year. DeSean Jackson isn't too big, himself, and he does just fine. Except when a Dunta Missile comes flying in. Ouch, was that too soon?
Anywho, your mid-May predictions for Rookie of the Year of the Falcons. Go!
