QB: Russell Wilson, Seattle Seahawks: Wilson added another impressive victory to his resume, as he completed a 46-yard touchdown pass to Sidney Rice with just 1:18 on the clock to take down Tom Brady and the Patriots. The rookie out of Wisconsin now has wins over Tom Brady, Aaron Rodgers*, Tony Romo, and Cam Newton, not bad for only having played six games. Both Todd McShay and Mel Kiper Jr. did not think too highly of Wilson, and had him as one of the lower ranked quarterbacks of the draft. In McShay’s final mock draft, Wilson was the seventh ranked quarterback behind three non-starters. 1x Winner RB: Doug Martin, Tampa Bay Buccaneers: Martin caused the Chiefs headaches with efficient execution all game. The small back out of Boise State rushed for 76 yards on 13 carries (5.8 avg.) and caught two balls for 55 yards (27.5 avg). Coming into the draft, Martin was considered one of the best running back prospects, and is now becoming a more consistent performer for the Bucs. Look for Martin to split carries with Legarrette Blount for a thunder/lightening combo. 1x Winner WR: Josh Gordon, Cleveland Browns: Gordon continues to prove himself as a valuable deep threat, as he scored a 71-yard touchdown pass against the Bengals in the first quarter. Gordon finished the day with 3 catches for 99 yards. He leads all rookies this year with 3 touchdown receptions and is second in total yards with 274. Gordon was selected in the 2nd round of the SUPPLEMENTAL draft  this past year, meaning all 32 teams passed on him 7 times. No analyst even bothered mentioning Gordon, who probably does not care after signing a 4 year, 5.3 million dollar deal with the Browns. 1x Winner TE: Coby Fleener, Indianapolis Colts: At this point, the best rookie tight end is which ever Andrew Luck decides to throw to more that day. This week it was Stanford’s Fleener, who finished the game with 4 catches for 42 yards. The Colts continue to use the two tight end system, and both Fleener and fellow rookie Dwayne Allen have put up solid numbers for rookies every week. 3x Winner Def: Casey Hayward, Green Bay Packers: Like most rookies the Packers draft, Hayward appears to already be NFL ready and a star in the making. Against the Texans on Sunday Night Football, Hayward picked off Matt Schaub twice and deflected three passes. It is clear that star corner Charles Woodson and Tramon Williams have taken the young corner from Vanderbilt under their wing, and are prepping him to be the next interception machine (Hayward now has a rookie high three interception in the last 2 games). 1x Winner -Langer
