Who’s Going To Be the NFL’s Top Offensive Rookie in 2015?

The betting line for the top offensive rookie in the NFL in 2015 has been released. It’s no surprise that top draft pick and former Heisman Trophy winner Jameis Winston has the best chance for winning this prominent honor.

Winston was drafted by Tampa Bay and is expected to take over the quarterback position. Considering the struggles that Josh McCown and Mike Glennon had last year, Winston is expected to be a major improvement over what the team had in the past.

In fact, Winston had 4-1 odds from SBG Global to win the best offensive rookies award in 2015. However, his off-field character exploits, particularly when he competed at Florida State, have created a cause for concern.

Other Favorites

There are many other favorites to watch for.

Oakland wide receiver Amari Cooper has 15-2 odds from SBG’s sportsbook to win the award. He was a star in Alabama but his quarterback Derek Carr is mostly unproven.

San Diego running back Melvin Gordon was a huge hit in Wisconsin and is expected to be a star with the Chargers. He has 17-2 odds to win the offensive rookie award.

St. Louis running back Todd Gurley holds 9-1 odds to win the award. He was a popular player in Georgia and should take the lead in the team’s ground game.

Jacksonville running back T.J. Yeldon was a popular running back in Alabama and holds 10-1 odds, according to several online sportsbooks, to be the league’s top rookie. While he had been drafted in the second round, he should compete with Bernard Pierce for the top running back position.



What About Mariota?

Much of the debate in the 2015 draft came from whether the Buccaneers should have drafted Winston or fellow quarterback and Heisman winner Marcus Mariota with the top overall pick. Mariota went to the Tennessee Titans instead. Mariota is expected to be the favorite to replace Zach Mettenberger, Jake Locker and others who tried and failed to be a successful quarterback. Mariota has 9-1 odds from SBG Global and other online oddsmakers to be named the top offensive rookie of the year.
