Pro Football Focus Rookie of the Year Race

Miami Dolphins quarterback Ryan Tannehill has broken in to PFF's Rookie of the Year top ten.

On Wednesday, Pro Football Focus released their "Race for the Rookie of the Year, Week 2." The article tracks the best playing rookie in the league, according to PFF's grades, regardless of position or name recognition. The goal of PFF is to name the best rookie each season, not just the flashy, highlight reel name.

In 2010, PFF named Devin McCourty their Rookie of the Year. In 2011, it was Von Miller. So far this year, it's clearly Robert Griffin III. Of RG3, PFF writes:

His passing wasn't quite as crisp in Week 2, but in letting his legs do some talking with designed runs, teams are going to find him even harder to defend.

However, as Miami Dolphins fans, we have our own Rookie of the Year candidate to watch. After not being listed in Week 1, quarterback Ryan Tannehill broke into the top ten this week after a strong performance against the Oakland Raiders. Coming in at the tenth spot, PFF wrote about Tannehill:

A mature display in Week 2 in which Tannehill displayed some chemistry with Brian Hartline and avoided making the kind of bad decisions that see rookie quarterbacks cost them a chance at victory. Very encouraging for one so inexperienced.

We will see if Tannehill is able to continue his climb up the rankings with another good performance, this one against division rival New York Jets.
