VIDEO: Andrew Luck vs. RG3 for NFL Rookie of the Year award

Who's most deserving of the 2012 NFL Rookie of the Year Award? Brad Wells of SB Nation and Stampede Blue looks at the pros and cons in favor of each candidate.

It's been quite the year for rookies throughout the 2012 NFL season. The No. 1 and No. 2 picks in the 2012 NFL Draft have more than lived up their billing. Andrew Luck and Robert Griffin III have turned the Colts and Redskins, respectively, from pretenders to contenders. Then, of course, there's third-round pick, Russell Wilson, who's proved to be the perfect field general and playmaker for a Seahawks team that is in great shape defensively and on special teams.

Brad Wells of Stampede Blue gives us his analysis. But who have you got?
