I dont know why but I'm having a hard time finding people to put into this category. Last year was obvious but for now I'm going to nominate John Ryan. This guy has been tearing it up and out punting every kicker in the league. Has a punter ever won this award? And I didnt know that this was Gavin Walls' first year (maybe I mis-read).
I don’t think John Ryan is a rookie, and my vote goes to Ryan Phillips of the Lions (DB).
