NFL Expert Picks: Who will win offensive player of the year?
CBSSports.com experts pick who they think will win the offensive player of the year award.
Jason La Canfora | Aaron Rodgers: No reason to believe he won't put up ridiculous numbers, especially with the Packers more poised to have balance on offense with a run game this year. If the offensive line can provide a modicum of protection then the sky is the limit.
Ryan Wilson | Julio Jones: The Falcons traded up in the 2011 NFL Draft to get Jones with the plan that he'd help them get to the Super Bowl. It hasn't heppened yet, but he's already one of the league's best pass catchers and he'll only get better this season.
John Breech | Colin Kaepernick: Drew Brees has won this award twice (2008 and 2011) and in both years another quarterback won the MVP award. With Brees being my projected MVP, it's only fitting that another quarterback wins the offensive player of the year award and I think Kaepernick and Russell Wilson are your best bets.
