Congrats Cush!

Two first-round picks from the 2009 draft have been deemed the top two rookies for the month of November.

Vikings receiver Percy Harvin is the offensive rookie of the month, and Texans linebacker Brian Cushing is the defensive player of the month.

Harvin, the 22nd overall selection, caught 19 passes for 317 yards and three touchdowns. He also had five rushing attempts for 54 yards and eight kickoff returns for 239 yards -- an average of 29.9 yards -- during the team's 4-0 run for the month.

Cushing, who was the 15th overall pick in the draft, notched 43 tackles, a sack, and two interceptions during four November games.

Both players are viable candidates for offensive and defensive rookies of the year.
