Congratulations to Mike Rappo, Percy Harvin and James Laurinaitis of the Philadelphia Wolfpack. Philly has taken home both Awards and it’s second OROY Award in as many seasons. DeSean Jackson won theaward in 2008.
To gain eligibility you must draft a rookie in the 3 Round Rookie Draft and start him a minimum of eight games. Any other NFL Rookie, whether drafted, traded for or added via waiver is considered an NJFFL Free Agent and is not eligible for ROY.
Fortunately for Philadelphia, Clay Matthews and Aaron Curry were the only other eligible players for DROY. The Bronx Rookie DL Brian Orakpo had a nice year but didn’t come on until late in the season.
