2013 NFL Offensive Rookie of the Year Odds and Betting Guide
Montee Ball (Running Back - Denver Broncos)
Joining the Denver Broncos from Wisconsin, Ball finished his colleague career with the NCAA Division I FBS record for most career total touchdowns with 83. Picked in the second round of the NFL draft, Ball joins one of the NFL's best offenses, which is sure to see him handed plenty of the ball by QB Peyton Manning, especially following Willis McGahee's release by the Broncos.
Eddie Lacy (Running Back - Green Bay Packers)
Lacy joins a lacklustre rushing offense at Green Bay, where last seasons leading rusher gained just 464 yards in the whole season. Earning first team All-SEC honors and finishing with a team high of almost 1,200 yards means Lacy is sure to be a first pick on that Packers offensive line. His 184 carries and 16 rushing touchdowns show he is the real deal.
DeAndre Hopkins (Wide Receiver - Houston Texans)
DeAndre Hopkins became only the second ever wide receiver drafted by the Texans in NFL history when he was picked 27th overall in the first round of the 2013 NFL draft. Hopkins played for his college team the Clemson Tigers and finished the 2012 season with 82 receptions for 1,405 yards and 18 touchdowns. This made him one of the best receivers in the USA, ranking him second in receiving TDs and fourth in receiving yards. Hopkins looks certain to be a first pick on the opposite flank to Andre Johnson.
Tavon Austin (Wide Receiver / Running Back - St. Louis Rams)
The versatile Austin is capable of playing both Running Back and Wide Receiver and is likely to go straight into the Ram's starting rota after being picked 8th overall in the 2013 NFL Draft. Austin's stats are very impressive, from his 4 year career at West Virginia Mountaineers, his record was superb. As Wide Receiver he received 288 passes for 3413 yards scoring 29 Touchdowns. As Running back he made 110 carries for 1033 yards scoring 6 touchdowns, and even playing as a Returns specialist, his record was an impressive 34 Punt returns for 433 yards, 1 PR TD, 97 Kick Returns for 2407 yards with 4 KR TD. The man knows how to shift a ball.
As of 8th July 2013 Tavon Austin was installed as favourite in from $11.00 to odds of by bookmaker Sportsbet.com.au
Tyler Eifert (Tight End - Cincinnati Bengals)
Notre Dame Fighting Irish tight end finished the 2012 as career leader in terms of receptions and yards in the position, and was recognised as college footballs top Tight End in the 2013 draft. Eifert's new quarterback, Andy Dalton favours using the middle of the field for plays, so Eifert stands a good chance of getting an early march on his rivals for ROTY.
Robert Woods (Wide Receiver - Buffalo Bills)
Scout.com rated Woods as the number 1 Wide Receiver prospect in the 2013 NFL Draft, and with GM Bill Nix stating categorically that the Bills needed a new WR, it was no real surprise to see Woods end up at Ralph Wilson Stadium.
Woods had an impressive college record at the University of South California, where in his senior year he caught 66 passes for 1112 yards, with 5 carries over 70 yards and almost 100 tackles. He is fast, with PB times for 200 metres and 400 metres of 21.04 seconds and 46.17 seconds respectively. His 400 metre time posted in 2010, placing him 11th on the World Junior list for 400 metre runners.
With the Bills desperate for a WR and Woods having such form, he is a certainty to claim a starting pick place from Round 1 and is a decent bet for Rookie of the Year.
Geno Smith (Quarterback - New York Jets)
Eugene Cyril "Geno" Smith III was selected in the second round of the draft by the Jets and is another West Virginia Mountaineer tipped for success. With strong rumours that Smith will oust Jets QB Mark Sanchez from the off set of the 2013 NFL season, its not hard to see why when you look at his stats. From 4 seasons at WVU Smith record was 44 games, 998 completed passes from 1465 attempts (67.4% completion rate) 11662 yards, 98 TD and 21 Interceptions, which is impressive. However with Sanchez also boasting a strong record, we can't see Smith getting enough games to win ROTY.
