Who would you consider to have been the best newcomer in 2005?
It's hard to argue against a guy who started 16 games, so I'll nominate Mankins.
note: with only ten spots open, I think I could safely leave Duane Starks off the list
*I considered adding Ben Watson to the list just because this was his first year of action, but I figured I'd stick with the guidelines.
Logan then Nick..then Hobbs..then heath...
Tim Dwight looked like an early favorite but he faded over the season... indeed most of the FAs were a big disappointment
I think you have to look among the rookies - and for me, Kaczur gets the award for stepping in a LT and keeping Brady alive and well
my top three,
in that order.
Soooo hard to pick just one, but seeing how Kaczur and Hobbs were leading Mankins 3 to 1... I had to vote for our favorite nut-smacker.
Hobbs gets my vote! One thing this team is really in need of is a return guy and Hobbs is starting to show promise there.
O-line is a mystery to me but there's no doubt that Hobbs added to the defense when he came in -- and the returns were good too. So Hobbs it is for me.
Not sure if he was the "best" but I voted for Kaczur because of the job he did filling in for Light at left tackle. If you broke down the films Mankins may have been #1 but to go in and keep Brady's blind side protected deserves my vote.
