Ranking the NFL's Top Rookie of the Year Candidates

The NFL's next superstar is already with their team and ready to make an impact, though nobody knows exactly who it is.

Whoever steps to the forefront by season's end will be named the NFL's Rookie of the Year.

The award itself is somewhat confusing since three different versions name and award the top rookie: the Associated Press, Pro Football Writers of America and's fan vote. The Pro Football Writers of America anointed Cleveland Browns quarterback Baker Mayfield, whereas New York Giants running back Saquon Barkley won the popular vote. Yet, the NFL considers the Associated Press' vote its official honor.
