Ranking the Top 5 NFL Rookie of the Year Award candidates

5. Jordan Hicks, Linebacker, Philadelphia Eagles

One of the biggest surprises this season in the rookie class has been former Texas Longhorns star linebacker Jordan Hicks. He was taken by Chip Kelly and the Philadelphia Eagles and has been a huge playmaker for their defense. After Kiko Alonso went down with another knee injury, Hicks became even more important to the 2015 Eagles.

Hicks has recorded 50 tackles, two interceptions, a forced fumble and three fumble recoveries.

Unfortunately, Hicks was placed on IR himself due to a pectoral injury.

At this stage in the season, however, Hicks still belongs on this list. He will likely fall away in the coming weeks due to the injury, but his season cannot be discounted due to the injury that he suffered.

Hicks has been one of the best rookies in the league and is very deserving of this spot in the rankings.
