Thought we'd play a little game called guess the OROY and DROY for the 2007 season. Since each team has played 1 game and we have gotten to see a glimpse of the rookies, let's put in our votes. Time ends at kickoff of the first game on Sunday, September 16th (start of week 2). I didn't see if we have done this on here or not so excuse me if we have. Then when the awards are announced we can come back and see how we fared.

Let the games begin:

OROY: Adrian Peterson RB- Minnesota Vikings
DROY: Patrick Willis LB- San Francisco 49'ers

I can't argue with those choices.

Well, you could call those three darn near lead pipe locks.

How about this - I'll be the dissenting opinion:

OROY - Marshawn Lynch
DROY - LaRon Landry

well I think predicting 2008 will be much harder than 2007.

Immediate post draft prediction:
OROY: Jonathan Stewart- RB, Panthers
DROY: Vernon Gholston- OLB, Jets

I'll try to remember to bump this during preseason so we can make our final decisions.

Let's at least see a regular season game before we restart this.

This is part of the fun. Making the prediction before the season really starts. Again, this is just a preliminary guess, the real one will come after the final preseason game and prior to game 1.

Kevin Smith, Lions on offense

That's a great pick, he is right up there in my opinion. Do you think Cherilous starts at RT for them from Day 1?

Offense: Jonathan Stewart
Defense: Jerod Mayo (SEC linebacker streak continues)

JStew looks like he is in a good spot to do well.

I agree. Fox looks like he's trying to return to his Stephen Davis power rushing type of attack.

Me, I think Reggie Bush has a shot at this year. I expect he will have a rookie level year.:thisbig:

Up your ass sounds like a good place to start.

Well we're 5 weeks into the season. Matt Forte looks like the leader to me at this point. How about defense? LB Curtis Lofton for the falcons (2nd rd pick?) has the most tackles of all rookies, Antoine Cason is doing well for a rookie CB.

Where the heck has Vernon Gholston been? Is he even playing? I've heard nothing about him or Chris Long. How are they playing? There was SO much hype surrounding both.

Long has 16 tackles & 2 sacks in 4 games (started all 4).

Gholston has 5 tackles in 4 games (hasn't started any).
