Who Will Be the 2012 Rookies of the Year?

Out of the 2012 draft picks, who do you draftniks believe will emerge ahead of the pack by the end of the season? While preseason has barely begun and the regular season has yet to arrive there have certainly been reports from training camps. We have observations, one-on-one matchups, and at least one pre-season game to give us an idea of each rookie. Offense: Andrew Luck RGIII Trent Richardson Matt Kalil Justin Blackmon Ryan Tannehill Michael Floyd Brandon Weedon Kendall Wright David Decastro Riley Reiff Kevin Zeitler Doug Martin A.J. Jenkins Doug Wilson Defense: Morris Claiborne Mark Barron Luke Kuechly Stephon Gilmore Dontari Poe Flecher Cox Bruce Irvin Michael Brockers Quinton Coples Dre Kirkpatrick Melvin Ingram Shea Mcclellin Chandler Jones Dont'a Hightower Whitney Mercilus Harrison Smith Derek Wolfe My picks: OROY: Andrew Luck. His division will mame him look better than RGIII's, Tannehill's, and Weedon's. Besides, it's a QB-driven league. DROY: Chandler Jones. It's a QB-driven league, so QB-killers are a premium. Jones was widely regarded as a project with a very high-upside. However he shocked everyone in camp with his increased strength, his array of advanced pass-rush moves, and the his quickness(see; knee injury no longer hampering him). I'm biased, but wait and see. What about you?
