The Pro Football Weekly preview issue was in the mailbox yesterday. So what better way to start 09/09/09 than with some love for No. 59?
The folks at PFW like Aaron Curry. A lot. In making predictions for the season, here’s what they had to say about the Seahawks’ first-round draft choice in regards to rookie of the year honors:
“Because the award always goes to offensive skill players, Seahawks OLB Aaron Curry won’t win it. But no rookie will make a bigger impact.” – Matt Sohn
“No rookie will make a bigger impact than Seahawks LB Aaron Curry, who will be a tackling machine playing in a very skilled unit.” – Michael Blunda
“Aaron Curry will make an immediate impact, helping elevate Seattle’s LB corps to among the best in the league.” – Keith Schleiden
“Seahawks SLB Aaron Curry. I look for him to become the same kind of instant force outside that Patrick Willis was inside for the Niners.” – Dan Arkush
Others mentioned: Vikings WR Percy Harvin (2), Rams LB James Laurinaitis.
