in the words on myself RaiderNation12:

NFL Rookie Of The Year

 As you look upon the many first rounders this season, you think of their great college carrers. Setting records, bowl wins, and just an all out great player. But what many don't think about is what effect they may have in the NFL.Most people look at the college carrer and assume that player would have a phenominal carrer weather his college statistics are good or bad.But you have to look at some of the major first round busts Akili Smith, Ryan Leaf, Tim Couch just to name a few. My NFL Rookie of the year favorite in my mind doesn't have much of a down side. Not drafted to early were he is pressured to play well, not injury-prone, no record, this man is Marshawn Lynch. Marshawn was selected 12th overall by one of my favorite teams the Buffalo Bills. Marshawn is on the bottom row far left in the picture above. His college carrer includes a record breaking 17 100 yard performances, putting himself in the top 10 for all purpose yards in Cal history, and became the 4th player in california history to reach 3,000 yards in his college carrer.So far his carrer in the NFL has been doing pretty well, offcially getting the starting job as running back for the buffalo bills(with occasional 3rd down runs by 2nd string anthony thomas). He has also provided Buffalo a much needed bruising, speed back.Marshawn with blistering speed(4.46 40 yard dash at the NFL combine), and lot's of power and strength(does a 365pd bench press), will most likely do great with the bills. What he has though that others do not, is the skill to make his own holes and make the most of something he may not have very good of. woth the terriable offensive line of cal, marshawn had to make the most of it and succeded. JaMarcus Russell had 2 first round stars in Craig Davis and Dwane Bowe.Ted Ginn Jr had a great QB in Troy Smith.Adrian Peterson has a phenominal offensive line, etc. Marshawn has what it takes and i think he will end up being the NFL Rookie Of The Year
