The 2014 NFL Draft was ripe with explosive offensive players who can make an immediate impact, but only one can have the top honor. Out of all the rookies on offense, these ten have the best chance to claim the highest prize.
The pieces still aren't all there in Jacksonville, but, at the very least, Bortles will be able to get some quality playing time. If he's able to get enough help from his lackluster supporting cast, he could get the hardware at the end of the season.
If used effectively, Ebron's skill set could spell doom for opposing defenses. He's one of the most athletically gifted tight ends to touch the field, but he won't be the top target with Calvin Johnson around. Even so, he'll have plenty of targets in his first year.
Manziel is really a boom-or-bust candidate. Given that he's named the starter, he has the ability to either dominate or to be destroyed. If he's able to work the magic like he did in college, he could very well be the league's top rookie.
Everything really is in place for Beckham to take away the award. He's got the means, and he'll have plenty of opportunities to rack up stats, but it largely comes down to how well Eli Manning can bounce back from a poor 2013 season.
With little competition in the Tennessee Titans' backfield, it looks as though Sankey will come away with the majority of the carries. He's on a team that will stick with the running game, so his ROY campaign looks promising.
Bridgewater might not have been the most talented quarterback in the draft, but he ended up in a situation that looks promising. There are plenty of weapons for him to use in Minnesota, so he won't be quite so alone as the other guys. If he utilizes the talent around him, he could very well have a good year.
The Carolina Panthers' receiving corps is all but dried up, so Benjamin will be the guy Cam Newton leans on this year. If he takes advantage of all those opportunities, he'll be an absolute star in his debut season.
As possibly the most physically gifted receiver in this draft class, Evans has a great chance to break out early as a rookie. He'll command the majority of the quarterback's attention, so he'll be able to prove himself often.
The New Orleans Saints have fallen in love with the speedy receiver, and it's not hard to see why. He'll have to fight for targets with plenty of others, but he has the means to turn every catch into a big time play.
Arguably the most talented player in the draft, Watkins stands as the No. 1 receiving option in Buffalo (and with good reason). He's going to be a dominant player early in his career, so it wouldn't be at all surprising to see him take the ROY award.
