Who is the best rookie in the NFL? All the candidates for the 2021 NFL Offensive Rookie of the Year award have something to prove. But the one NFL rookie with the most to prove is Mac Jones, who inherited the vaunted New England Patriots starting quarterback job and has massive Tom Brady sized expectations in year one. Winning NFL Rookie of the Year would certainly justify Bill Belichick's decision to release Cam Newton. But, who out of all NFL rookies is the best? Who will win the Rookie of the Year award?
Top NFL rookies who could be a major factor in the NFL Rookie of the Year voting in the 2021 season include first-round draft picks like the Jacksonville Jaguars' Trevor Lawrence, the New York Jets' Zach Wilson, and the Pittsburgh Steelers' Najee Harris. Some of the best recent Rookie of the Year Award winners on the offensive side include Justin Herbert, Alvin Kamara, and Saquon Barkley, so players who make an immediate impact like they did will see themselves in the discussion for the award as the season goes on.
Vote below for the players you think are most likely to be in the running for the 2021 Rookie of the Year award, and vote down the players you don't think should be near the top of the list.
