Top 10 Potential Offensive Rookie of the Year Candidates for the 2019-20 NFL Season

This past draft class had a fair amount of good players on offense. As these rookies prepare to take the field for the first time here’s some players to keep an eye on as they might have a breakout season
The Top Ten
1 Josh Jacobs

Oakland might have found their guy. The running back out of Alabama will be a key piece in the Raiders' offense. He has the advantage of being in a better spot to be a leader than most other rookie running backs. Historically speaking, the last time Gruden was coaching a team that drafted a running back in the first round, Cadillac Williams won OROTY in 2005.

2 Kyler Murray Kyler Cole Murray is an American football quarterback for the Arizona Cardinals of the National Football League.

A lot of people see him as the favorite to win, but I don't know about that. Arizona has a horrible offensive line. Murray would have to be the next Brady or Rodgers to work. And who's he going to throw to? Larry Fitzgerald? He has a chance, but he shouldn't be the favorite.

3 D.K Metcalf

D.K. Metcalf might be a good fit for Russell Wilson in Seattle. With Doug Baldwin retired and Tyler Lockett the only real established receiver, Metcalf should have no trouble finding success and getting into the conversation for OROTY.

Metcalf will be found a lot, so I got Metcalf.

4 Dwayne Haskins

In my opinion, Dwayne Haskins is the best rookie quarterback in the league right now. He might not have quite the same skillset as Kyler Murray, but if his season at Ohio State was any indication, he has a bright future. The only issue is playing time, seeing as he has to compete with Case Keenum and Colt McCoy. But if Baker Mayfield showed us anything, he can still be in the running even with a shortened season.

He will be on the bench to start the season, so it would definitely be an uphill climb for him.

5 Mecole Hardman

Mecole Hardman is a wide receiver out of Georgia and is pretty much Tyreek Hill 2.0. While not exactly like him, this is a guy who could fit right in with Mahomes and Andy Reid. With Hill back, it seems like Mecole Hardman could pick up a few tips from the veteran.

6 David Montgomery

With Jordan Howard gone, it seems inevitable that Montgomery will get some playing time, even with Tarik Cohen and Mike Davis on the roster. David Montgomery is in a good spot to be the go-to running back for Mitchell Trubisky.

7 N’Keal Harry

He'll have some big shoes to fill with no Gronkowski anymore, but if Brady and Belichick like what they see in this guy, then he has a shot. We can't doubt those two. Look what happened with Sony Michel. They drafted him, and now he's a decent weapon for Brady. Could N'Keal Harry be the same way?

8 TJ Hockenson

TJ Hockenson will likely make an immediate impact on Detroit's offense, and I like this guy's potential. However, he's a pretty big dark horse, considering Barry Sanders was the last Detroit Lions player to win the award. As I have already mentioned, no tight end has won the award yet. He would have to be Rob Gronkowski to have a good shot, but perhaps he has a chance.

9 Noah Fant

This guy could be a dark horse candidate. No tight end has won it yet, but Joe Flacco has been known to favor tight ends a lot. Plus, there's not much competition for TE in Denver.

He should get some playing time, and we could see him explode.

10 Parris Campbell

Another potential dark horse candidate, but I see Campbell fitting in nicely in the Colts offense. Andrew Luck is back, and with T.Y. Hilton alongside him, he's a guy to keep your eyes on.
