    Thought it might be interesting to see how those rookies drafted in the 1st round are doing about half-way through the season. For the OL, I've listed team stats for rush yds per game and sacks allowed, since individual stats for OL aren't easy to come across.

    # Team Player
    1 Oakland JaMarcus Russell 0 G
    2 Detroit Calvin Johnson 6 G, 15 Rec, 273 Yds, 2 TDs, 1 Rush TD
    3 Cleveland Joe Thomas 7 G, 117.6 Rush Yds/G (14th), 13 Sacks Allowed (16th)
    4 Tampa Bay Gaines Adams 8 G, 16 TCKL, 1.5 SCK
    5 Arizona Levi Brown 4 G, 103.1 Rush Yds/G (19th), 8 Sacks Allowed (3rd)

    Griffin is also 3rd in KR yds among rookies with 398.

    Ginn is 1st with 778. Peterson is 5th.

    Without looking at special teams, I think the following is accurate:

    Top Defensive Rookie: Amobi Okoye or Revis
    Top Offensive Rookie: Adrian Peterson

    Not entirely unexpected that AD is lighting it up. Besides, he is on my fantasy team.

    Nelson is a good candidate for DROTY, too.

    Same with Aaron Ross. The guy has stepped up for the Giants D. TD 2 weeks ago.

    We could have defensive rookie again with Okoye or with a trade down we could have had Revis and the DROY and another pick? Thanks for screwing up my day. J/K. I really wanted a CB last draft. sigh.

    I dont think a Texan will win 2 years in a row.

    That would give the impression that we know what we are doing during the draft.
