Yeah Gilmore looks really good. He really shut down Brandon Lloyd in the first Pats game despite Brady really going after him. He could be a real good one.
I really don't know who I would give this award to. I don't like the idea of LBs getting it simply because unless you are like Willis/Bowman level the LB position has almost become a situational role. I don't care if someone has a million tackles because that's not where the game is won anymore.
QB disruptions, pass breakups, turnovers, great coverage etc are the most important thing.
Janoris Jenkins is intriguing. His game changing plays far outweigh any other rookie, however his play has been so up and down all year.
I would probably give it to Heyward
