    I was just watching Total Access on NFLN and Rod Woodson predicted our very own Jacoby Jones would be the most impressive offensive rookie this year. Ahead of Calvin Johnson, Marshawn Lynch, Adrian Peterson, Dwayne Bowe, Dwayne Jarret, Ted Ginn, Robert Meachem, etc...

    You gotta love it! Man I hope he goes off this year.

    I very seriously doubt that he will win rookie of the year.

    It is very tough for a receiver to win that award.

    Jones had a spectacular preseason and that has brought him the attention that leads to such huge predictions. I expect him to have a solid season, win the number two spot by mid season, but I hope people don't have too high expectations of him and get disappointed if he doesn't set the league on fire.

    I caught that last night too. Although it was kind of weird hearing Rod Woodson say something about the Texans.

    I was thinking about this earlier and actually think Jacoby has a better chance than most people realize. Kubiak thinks he's a special player and is going to get him the ball. I don't think he's going to make all sorts of receiving TD's and set records for rookies but I do think he will get more touches than any other rookie wide out.

    QB's: I will go on record and say Jamarcus Russell nor Brady Quinn will win it (no other qb either)
    RB's: Marshawn Lynch, Adrian Peterson are both favorites, Chris Henry might see enough action to be thrown into the mix, i'm drawing a blank on other RB's that might have an impact this season...(michael bush, kenny irons, antonio pittman, ken darby, all doubtful imo)
    TE's: doubtful?
    OL: doubtful?
    WR's: Calvin Johnson, Dwayne Bowe, Robert Meachem, Ted Ginn, Dwayne Jarrett, Jacoby Jones, Anthony Gonzalez, whole slew of wr's taken in 3rd rd...

    We'll see how much ted ginn figures into the wr spot in miami.

    I just think Jacoby is going to see a lot more action than most of the other wr's and that kubiak is going to put him in positions to make big plays. I see CJ as his biggest competitor at wr but he's got a few wr's that will see the ball more on the lions...then the RB's..Lynch and Peterson could have big years but are they sharing carries?

    Offense: Jacoby Jones, WR, Houston
    Defense: Patrick Willis, LB, Ole Miss (I actually think Reggie Nelson has a decent chance at DROY too, he could make a lot of int's)

    Rod has the Jets as his #5 in his AFC Power Rankings....in other words, he has no credibility.

    i do like that JJ is getting love but its a little early...lets see him do it this Sunday b4 we crown him.

    I'll handicap it this way for oroy:

    Most likely:

    Adrian Peterson

    Second:

    Marshawn Lynch

    Third:

    Jacoby Jones

    RB get so many touches, but if Jacoby does a Devin Hester imitation on returns AND has a good impact at the WR spot, he could pull it off! :splits:

    Irons is out for the year and Pittman in unemployed (should have stayed at OSU!).

    Gonzo is WR #3 and I don't think has a shot. As for Ginn, I think he's going to start slow, but maybe by the end of the year if he plays enough?

    Same with Calvin J. Though he better start and getting plenty of catches, I have him in FF.

    If Jacoby continues as he has played, I think he actually has a shot.

    Well, if he doesn't then he at least holds the title of:

    "Offensive pre-season rookie of the year"

    I agree. I think jacoby is #1 out of QB's and WR's, but those two RB's are more likely candidates, depending on how they play.

    I dont see Peterson getting enough action, as far as that goes, I see JJ getting the most opportunity to shine.

    Lynch is going to be the featured back from day 1, so I'd give it to him
