Top rookies?

Many excellent rookies this season. Who would you pick as top rookie of the year?

Stefan Logan, Weston Dressler, Calgary's 2 O-lineman, pretty good crop this year.

also Romby Bryant has been pretty good

I'd toss in AJ Harris and Tristan Jackson for Edmonton, but I don't know if I consider them the best rookies right now.

I thought he was ineligible due to playing in the NFL previously? I know Campbell on the Eskimo's is not eligible.

My vote goes to Logan or Dressler.

I'd go with those two also. ^^^^^

Logan and Dressler have been the top two. It'll be tough to choose between them. I guess we'll see how they do the rest of the season.

without a doubt.

I dont know if Logan is eligible. I know that if he “PLAYED” in the NFL he would not be, but he was on a practise roster

None of the NFL sites have any game stats listed for Logan so I assume he never actually played.

he hasent, its the practise roster that makes me wonder if he is eligable

Just to name a few more Lobendahn, Amos probably don't have a chance at the award but they are some top rookies this year.

Labatte just another good rookie. This has been a good year for the CFL for young players anyways.

I was just looking into it, and it's the same with AJ Harris. he went with a couple NFL teams, but he never made by past pre-season. But he did apparently play for an NFL Europe team. Would that take him out of contention?

At least we still have Tristan Jackson.

prechea rodriguez (sp??) has been good too. I take Dressler though

according to CFL.ca Romby Bryant is not eligible.

i would take Prechea Rodriguez as rookie of the year (i guess i maybe a little biased)

a lot of people are saying Dressler but PR's stats are much better.

Dressler: 38 catches for 790 yards and 5 TD's

Rodriguez: 50 catches for 820 yards and 6 TD's

but i guess when you include Dressler's punt/kick/miss fg/ return stats he gets the advantage.

Either way it should definately be Prechae Rodriguez from the east up against Weston Dressler from the West.

Dressler also has a better average... 20.8-16.4.

man Labatte has been a machine look at the pressure glenn was under when he was out
