2019 NFL Offensive Rookie of The Year Betting Futures

The NFL is days away from its first game of the preseason. As we prepare for months of football, let's take a look ahead at some of the bright stars making their way to the professional gridiron for the first time.

Kyler Murray is an early favorite to win the NFL Offensive Rookie of the Year award for the 2019 season. Murray won the Heisman Trophy with Oklahoma in 2018 and was the first overall pick in the 2019 NFL Draft. He was selected first overall by the Arizona Cardinals.

Murray is headed to a Cardinals team that finished 3-13 last season under Sam Bradford and Josh Rosen. The Cardinals scored fewer points than any team in the NFL last season.

I get it. Murray is coming into the season with a lot the momentum on his side. He also has an offensive arsenal that includes David Johnson in the backfield and Larry Fitzgerald/Andy Isabella catching the ball. For a quarterback to have a shot at the Rookie of the Year award, his team needs to be halfway decent, if not good. Will Murray at five wins to the Cardinals record so that they're at least .500? I don't see it.

If the Cardinals find themselves trailing often this season, Murray's numbers will suffer. Only two NFC teams allowed more points than the Cardinals in 2018 (Tampa Bay, San Francisco).

There are other players that find themselves in better position to not just perform but win in 2019. Dwayne Haskins, should he start for Washington will be headed to a team that finished one game behind .500. The NFC is a toss-up every year. If Haskins is smart with the ball, a couple of key wins could see them in position to compete for the division title.

Despite being a promising receiver, Marquise Brown is in a tough position to succeed in Baltimore. Starting QB Lamar Jackson is more in love with his legs than his arm. He was not very accurate last year. That doesn't bode well if you're a young receiver looking to shine. Sell on Marquise Brown and the Ravens.

Running back Josh Jacobs, the 24th pick of this year's draft is a player to look out for. Jacobs was drafted by Jon Gruden's Raiders. Gruden is an offensive-minded coach that has benefited from excellent play at the running back position in the past. Jacobs rushed for 5.3 yards per carry and 11 touchdowns with Alabama in 2014. He averaged 6.3 yards from scrimmage with 14 touchdowns.

Jacobs should get plenty of reps in Oakland. Antonio Brown's presence makes the running game that much more dangerous. We should see early on whether Derek Carr is going to sink or swim in this Jon Gruden-led offense.
