2018 Rookie of the Year Tracker (FINAL)
By Keith Van Wagner
Special to gzl-football.com

The 2018 season is over – at least the regular season – and we can now crown the 2018 Rookie of the Year (OK, I can crown him – you guys might have differing opinions on this). Anyway, by my count DE Collin Kilpatrick wins the honor of Rookie of the Year. The Charger Defensive End was a force throughout the whole season and demonstrated an incredibly versatility. Offensive Rookie of the Year honors go, in my estimation to Tampa Bay Halfback Todd Gurley. Gurley had 7 100+ games, including two contests with over 200 yards rushing.

Be sure to check back next year – the 2019 Rookie of the Year ballots will be going out sooner than you think! OK, I don’t really know what that’s supposed to mean. There are no actual ballots. I just pick ‘em. Anyway, you get the idea!
