Defensive Rookie of the Year

BigBlueDownTheShore : 1/3/2019 10:54 am
We all know Offensive is going to either Saquon or Baker.

Anyone have any idea who the Defensive player will be? Who's your best bet?
Darius Leonard most likely.  
Strahan91 : 1/3/2019 10:55 am : link
I think him and Derwin James should share the award though.
I haven't kept up with it too much  
pjcas18 : 1/3/2019 10:56 am : link
but the safety from SD was all over the field every time I saw them. Derwin James.

Definitely Darius Leonard

He is an absolute beast. I like Will Hernandez but I wish that the Giants took Leonard.
Chubb's got a legit case too  
giants#1 : 1/3/2019 10:59 am : link
12 sacks, 14 TFL and 21 QBHits.

Leonard was 2nd among rookies with 7 sacks. Also 2nd in TFLs with 12.
James probably

Leonard and Vander Esch also in the running.

Darius Leonard should be. I don't know why this guy isn't getting much love... or at least it seems he's not. He's been a monster this year. Indy nailed that pick.

If the draft was redone today he would be a top 10 pick. He lead the NFL in tackles despite missing a game. He had 7 sacks, 2 interceptions, 4 forced fumbles, and 8 passes defensed.

He was a total monster. 3 down linebacker. He should be in the conversation for Defensive Player of the Year
It'll be either  
ShockNRoll : 1/3/2019 11:17 am : link
James, Leonard, or Vander Esche. Any one of these guys is worthy of the award, my gut says it'll be Leonard. He should also be in the running for Defensive Player of the Year, but that will likely go to Donald or Mack.
Don't forget Leighton Vander Esch...  
M.S. : 1/3/2019 11:18 am : link

...of the Dallas Cowboys.

138 tackles / 2 interceptions.
Ward from Browns  
KWALL2 : 1/3/2019 11:21 am : link
Was excellent from day 1. He should get some votes.

Awesome year for Leonard, but it isn't close so far as DPOY is concerned. It will be Aaron Donald, and it ain't close. It's Donald's second straight, and only the 3rd guy to do it after LT and JJ Watt.
There were some great rookie defenders this year.  
Boy Cord : 1/3/2019 11:31 am : link
Damn.
Leonard would be my vote  
robbieballs2003 : 1/3/2019 12:01 pm : link
Might be the most complete LB in the NFL that is a true LB and not just an edge rusher who racks up sacks. Complete animal.
Hill

Fuchers
It's a good class...  
bw in dc : 1/3/2019 12:24 pm : link
Vander Esch, Ward, Leonard, James, Chubb.

I lean to Leonard because that Colts made the playoffs and the Colts D improved by 4 PPG/allowed YoY.

But I could live with any of them.

Baker

Already won OROY.

Um, no. Not yet.
Ah

Well technically I am right and wrong. Baker won the PFT ROY.

No, you're wrong. There's only only OROY, and PFT ain't handing it out.
Vander Esch gets my vote...

Wish the Giants had LBs like him.

He probably will though. When there's doubt the qb always wins.
