    I gotta say Edelman.
    I believe he will be a elite reciever in the NFL.

    Elite? :rolleyes:

    He'll be good for what we need him to be, possession receiver to mid-range level throws. There are only a few elite receivers in the NFL, and I have a hard time thinking we'll be seeing Edelman among the Larry Fitgeralds, Andre Johnsons, Reggie Waynes, etc.

    I'll be happy if he's as good as Austin Collie.

    WHAT??
    edelman only played two games with good playing time, with Houston and Baltimore, he had a plus 100 yard game and a 2 td performance.
    He is already better than Collie, he will be better then Wes.

    Butler deserves some consideration for third place but Vollmer is the clear winner.

    I was stuck between Edelman or Vollmer.

    But I went for Edelman due to his draft position and how he has had to learn a new position.

    But Vollmer is bloody good ;)

    Vollmer by a mile

    I never got nervous when he was on the feild and i preferred him at left tackle over light. That says alot.

    I voted for Ingram. He snapped the ball 138 times without a miscue. The Patriots did not miss Lonie Paxton at all. Ingram deserves some recognition for doing a good job.

    I'll go with Vollmer. Considering that Edelman was a 7th Round QB playing a completely new position, I think Vollmer has a chance to be a Top 5 Tackle in this league.

    Vollmer
    It was clear to me in PS that he had some serious talent, and when he got his chance he sure as hell didn't disappoint.
    Edelman was awesome too, and I'm hopeful that he can stay healthy and gain more experience.
    I'm not sure why he's going to be "better" than Wes :rolleyes:, but I'll leave that to the rejects to sort out.

    Edelman is my vote. Solid contributer despite being hurt and has been our best rookie pass catcher since Branch. Vollmer was alright in his stint as a starting LT and RT and, don't get me wrong, will be very good one day. However, this season he needed help from tight ends and wide receivers a little too much for me to vote him "best rookie". He would be my runner-up though.

    Has to be Vollmer for me. Guy looked more than comfortable when he stepped in for Light, against some very good Defensive Ends.

    Don't get me wrong Edelman was great especially considering his draft position and the fact he was a QB but we may have drafted a stud LT in the second round.

    i don't know about elite. welkers name is not even bring up when peopel talk about elite. WR in the NFL


    elite means geting 90+ catchs 1200+ yerds and 10+ TD's every year. pretty much randy moss, im not sure he will ever be that good. but i am with you in thinking he will become a good WR and at worst a realy good #3

    Yea elite as in Brandon Marshall or Reggie Wayne is a stretch.

    But I do like Edelman. I do think next year with Welker on the mend for most of it he could be a 70 catch guy with around 850-900 yards. Not bad for a 7th rounder.

    As far as a RoY, I really like what Myron Pryor did. 284 snaps and 17 tackles. Not bad. If he finds a couple of pas rushing moves and works on handling the double teams better he has a great future...

    Vollmer. He looks like he's going to be a starter on this OL for years to come. Great size, athleticism and agility on the OL. He is what this team needed. A lot of the Pats blowouts happened when the OL blocked well. Vollmer was a big part of that.

    Edelman deserves an honorable mention though. I hope he becomes a big part of this offense in 2010.

    Ingram really deserves the recognition. Unlike the other rookies, he was relied on every single game of the season, and did his job without issue.

    But after some consideration, I'd go with Vollmer. He only started 8 games, but he played in 14, and also played at multiple positions. But I'd put Ingram second above Edelman, who missed some time due to injuries.

    Yeah, having 346 receptions in three years isn't elite.

    Average, at that.

    Vollmer but it was close, Edleman made just as much of an impact. Im surprised that its this uneven so far.

    Vollmer. Had Edelman not gotten hurt however, this poll would be much much closer I believe.
