NFL Awards

MVP Award

Candidates

  1. Andrew Luck-QB Colts
  2. Patrick Mahomes-QB Chiefs
  3. Aaron Rodgers-QB Packers
  4. Dalvin Cook-RB Vikings

Winner: Andrew Luck

With this season outlook, I have the Colts continuing the hot streak they ended the 2019 season on. Luck was healthy during the second half of the season last year, finally knocking off the last bit of rust from his shoulder surgery. And all the Colts have done this offseason is add Luck offensive weapons like, Parris Campbell and Devin Funchess.

Luck leads the Colts to a 13-3 win-loss record in this season projection. With the Colts dominating the league I project Luck to finish with 5,200 yard passing, 43 touchdowns and 17 interceptions. If you have been reading this article you would have noticed that I also have the Colts winning the Super Bowl, so I am all in on the Colts this offseason.

Offensive Player of the Year

Candidates

  1. Andrew Luck
  2. Dalvin Cook
  3. Odell Beckham Jr.
  4. Saquon Barkley

Winner: Dalvin Cook

If you read the beginning of my article, then you are probably questioning just how the Vikings ended up with a record of 12-4. Well lets just say they were taking a trip and Cook was their bus driver. Cook has always been on the brink of a breakout, and it will finally happen during the 2019-2020 season.

The Vikings offensive line has been very solid the past few years. The biggest problem has been Cook’s health, especially his knee. Some have labeled him injury prone, but I consider all his injuries to be a fluke. I project Cook to finish the season with 1800 rushing yards and 13 rushing touchdowns. I expect him to contribute 650 receiving yards on 55 catches and 3 touchdowns.

Defensive Player of the Year

Candidates

  1. Khalil Mack-DE Bears
  2. Aaron Donald-DT Rams
  3. Demarcus Lawrence-DE Cowboys
  4. Frank Clark-DE Chiefs

Winner: Aaron Donald

Yes I know, very chalky to give the award to the already back-to-back DPoY. Donald’s dominance is just uncanny. There is absolutely nothing you can do when he decides that he wants to get to the passer. Teams send double teams and sometimes even triple teams at him with their tight end.

Donald will miss his trench buddy Ndamukong Suh, who is still remarkably a free agent, but he still has a stacked defense around him. Especially with the Rams re-signing pass rusher Dante Fowler Jr. I project Donald to have another monster year finishing with 55 tackles, 18.5 sacks and 23 tackles for loss.

Offensive Rookie of the Year

Candidates

  1. Dwayne Haskins-QB Redskins
  2. Josh Jacobs-RB Raiders
  3. Kyler Murray-QB Cardinals
  4. D.K. Metcalf-WR Seahawks

Winner: Kyler Murray

Murray has the best chance of any rookie in this draft class to make an immediate impact. He will look to take the reigns of the Cardinals offense early on in the off-season program, while other rookies will be looking to compete in position battles.

It is extremely hard to project the type of impact Murray will have, especially during his rookie year. Murray and head coach Kliff Kingsbury will look to set the league on fire together. I project Murray to finish the season with, 3150 yards passing, 21 passing touchdowns and 16 interceptions. Murray will add 750 rushing yards and 9 rushing touchdowns.

Defensive Rookie of the Year

Candidates

  1. Nick Bosa-DE 49ers
  2. Johnathan Abram-S Raiders
  3. Devin White-LB Bucs
  4. Devin Bush-LB Steelers

Winner: Devin White

Coming into the draft White was viewed as the most complete linebacker prospect. White was going to be a perfect fit for whichever team ended up drafting him. But the utmost perfect fit would be the Bucs. With former starting linebacker Kwon Alexander leaving via free agency, there was a huge hole to fill at their linebacker position.

Freshly hired defensive coordinator Todd Bowles was just fired from the New York Jets, where he religiously used speed demons at his linebacker position. So fill in Lavonte David and Devin White, and Bowles will be sleeping peaceful at night knowing he can cover whatever is thrown his way. I project White to finish the season with 135 tackles, 12 tackles for loss and three sacks.

Summary

As you probably noticed I have this labeled as my season outlook, post NFL Draft. I will come out with my next season outlook before the preseason and my final one right before the regular season begins. I like to make adjustments to my projections just because so much can happen in the NFL just in one day, let alone a whole off-season.
