Ryan Clady Finishes Third in Rookie of the Year Voting

Drew RobertsSenior Analyst IDecember 30, 2008

Ryan Clady finished a distant third to the Atlanta Falcons' Matt Ryan in the AP's Offensive Rookie of the Year voting. But hey, he got some votes didn't he?

As hard as it is for a "non-skill" position player to garner much attention in balloting, it speaks volumes that Clady finished one vote behind Titans' running back Chris Johnson and one vote in front of the Bears' Matt Forte.

Clady, as previously noted, will be conspicuously absent from the Pro Bowl, but he has impressed everyone this season, giving up just a half a sack while playing left tackle for the Denver Broncos.

Mark it down: Clady will be an All-Pro next season.
