A lot of people probably think that Matthew Stafford will have the best career than any other rookie this draft. It's kind of hard to name who's going to be rookie of the year for offense because they play different positions. Here's the players who probably have the best chance of winning offensive rookie of the year.

Matthew Stafford

Many say Stafford is going to be the best player in the draft. The negatives are, can the Lions' offensive line give Stafford time so he can deliver good throws? Can he handle the pressure of being counted on to be the franchise QB?

The good things are that he has good receivers and talented players on the field to throw to. I say Stafford will be a franchise QB for the Lions.

Mark Sanchez

People think that Mark Sanchez should have been the No. 1 QB and that he's going to have a better career than Stafford. The negative for Sanchez is that he doesn't really have good, talented players like Stafford, but Sanchez does have the better line, and their defense is good too, so he will probably throw more than Stafford. I say Sanchez might be the ROY, but we never know.

Michael Crabtree

Everybody was surprised when Oakland let up Crabtree. Can Crabtree make them feel stupid for passing him up? I say yes.

Crabtree has good hands, and is vicious when it comes to making plays. The problem is, do the 49ers have a QB who can give him the ball? I Shaun Hill and Alex Smith are not that good. The biggest question is, though, can Crabtree get open in this league? We will see if Crabtree is the player that people think he will be.

Knowshown Moreno

Moreno is probably going to be the best rookie running back. He should fit perfectly in the Broncos' offense since they're running a spread. Moreno is quick, fast, and elusive. He brings more talent to the passing game as well. So, he should be an impact to their offense.

He has good hands and can run routes real well. He could be a contender for Offensive Rookie of the Year. One thing that people think is bad is that he ran his combine kind of slow, but he's going to be a straight beast in the NFL.

Josh Freeman

Freeman should be playing this year. They might not play him because they want to groom him. They should play him now and let him get playing experience. Freeman has the good size and is a bomber. Freeman is probably the next Big Ben, but he can throw the ball deeper.

The problem with him is that he tends to telegraph passes and is slow on progression. Freeman should be good for the Bucs, but we'll see.

That's all, I'm out. On Saturday I will do who can be Defensive Rookie of the Year.
