Most Valuable Player (MVP)Drew Brees, QB, New Orleans Saints: Brees throws for at least 5,000 yards for the 4th straight year and 5th time overall. He has weapons all over and RB Mark Ingram looks to finally have a breakout season. The New Orleans Saints as a team have a great chance at having the best record in the NFC after Week 17.
Offensive Player of the Year (OPY)
LeSean McCoy, RB, Philadelphia Eagles: McCoy runs behind one of the best offensive lines in the NFL and faces what should be pretty bad teams in the NFC East twice a year. As the focal point in head coach Chip Kelly's offense; there is no reason to think he can't total 2,500 yards and 12+ touchdowns in 2014.
Defensive Player of the Year (DPY)
Robert Quinn, DE, St. Louis Rams: After producing 19 sacks and seven forced fumbles in 2013; Quinn will have to duplicate those numbers to have a chance at winning this award. At 24 years old, he should threaten the sack record again with Chris Long, Michael Brockers, Kendall Langford and newcomer Aaron Donald alongside him.
Offensive Rookie of the Year (ORY)
Kelvin Benjamin, WR, Carolina Panthers: Benjamin was an underrated talent going into the draft just like San Diego Chargers WR Keenan Allen was a year ago. Panthers QB Cam Newton has to throw to somebody outside of TE Greg Olsen and Benjamin will be a go-to target for him. Benjamin has caught everything all camp and has looked great in the preseason.
Defensive Rookie of the Year (DRY)
Jadeveon Clowney, OLB, Houston Texans: Clowney already looks like one of the better defensive players in the NFL exploding off the snap and blowing up plays in the backfield this preseason. If he can stay healthy for a full 16 game season, he'll help the Texans win games and has an excellent mentor in DE J.J. Watt.
Comeback Player of the Year (CPY)
Rob Gronkowski, TE, New England Patriots: It seems like Gronkowski has been trying to get back for two years now even though he did play in seven games last year. If Gronkowski comes back close to the player he was in 2011; there will be no stopping him especially with all the tick-tack penalties being called on defenses.
Coach of the Year (COY)
Sean Payton, New Orleans Saints: I have the Saints going 13-3 and winning the No.1 seed in the NFC. New Orleans has assembled a very good team and the defense should be excellent in year two under defensive coordinator Rob Ryan. Payton will continue to coach like he has something to prove and his team should respond this season.
