Offensive Rookie Of The Year

Tavon AustinSt. Louis Rams

This 2013 draft class is not nearly as deep, or as talented as the 2012 class was in terms of offensive talent, but Austin is a guy that has the potential to really do some amazing things in this league. Austin defines the word “explosion”. He racked up 215 receptions, 2,475 yards, and 20 touchdowns over his final two seasons at West Virginia.

St. Louis is the perfect situation for Austin, because he will receive passes from one of the best young quarterbacks in the league in Sam Bradford, and the Rams as a team are slowly building themselves up to be a force to be reckoned with in the NFC West.

Austin has the perfect frame to play in the slot, but he also has the physical tools to make some plays on the outside, and that is why Austin will explode onto the NFL scene in the upcoming season. There are a lot of incoming rookies that are talented, and I know they will be productive for their respective clubs, but Austin has the rare ability to make plays in a multitude of ways, and that’s why he will walk away with the offensive rookie of the year award.
