Who’s your early Defensive Rookie of the Year pick? The #49ers have the no.2 overall pick in Nick Bosa. However Nick Bosa and Quinnen Williams opened as the co-favorites to win the NFL’s Defensive Rookie of the Year award in 2019.
The Caesars Palace sportsbook listed Bosa and Williams at +400, a good distance ahead of Ed Oliver at +550 and Devin Bush at +700.
Talent-wise, little separates Bosa and Williams. According to Bleacher Report Williams was listed at No. 1 and Bosa at No. 2 on their final big board heading into the draft.
Based on their respective positions, though, Bosa arguably deserves a slight edge in the defensive ROY race. He will be coming off the edge for San Francisco, while Williams is likely to line up in the middle of New York’s three-man defensive line.
Since 1990, only four defensive tackles have won the award: Aaron Donald, Ndamukong Suh, Tim Bowens and Dana Stubblefield. That doesn’t bode well for Williams, who might struggle to compile the kind of stats that would impress the voting poll. That doesn’t mean he can’t because Williams is definitely special. Time will tell
Meanwhile Deebo Samuel is for sure an outstanding offensive talent amongst the many from the 2019 draft but Deebo has an edge on just about all the rest due to having Kyle Shanahan as his OC.
Samuel is considered an ideal scheme fit for Shanahan’s offense for a number of reasons, and Shanahan will be utilizing his skills for every one of those reasons.
In fact Deebo could be one of the prime reasons the 49ers offense erupts this season which could lead to a 10 plus win season. If that happens it would follow that Shanahan like McVay who won COY two years ago by bringing the Rams from the depths of the toilet to the best in the west could be the same story for Kyle Shanahan.
Kyle Brandt of GMFB has already warned the NFL network audience in spite of Nate Burleson’s protest to not be surprised if the 49ers win the NFC west
