Top 2021 NFL Rookie of the Year candidates ahead of preseason
With preseason games finally on the horizon, we take a look at the NFL Rookie of the Year candidates.
To no surprise, oddsmakers have set Trevor Lawrence as the odds-on favorite to win the AP Offensive Rookie of the Year award. The odds to win AP Defensive Rookie of the Year aren’t as obvious, with Micah Parsons as the early leader to win DROY and several other contenders nearby. With plenty of solid ROY contestants on both sides of the ball, the 2021 NFL Draft class has the potential to make history.
In some ways, the incoming rookie class is already historic. For the first time in NFL history, eight QBs were selected in the first three rounds.
While quarterbacks tend to dominate the conversation, April’s draft featured a lot more than players who can throw a football. Let’s dive into some of the other candidates for the 2021 NFL Rookie of the Year award.

- Najee Harris, RB, Pittsburgh Steelers – Violent runner, could bring the power-running game back to the ‘Burgh

- Jaycee Horn, CB, Carolina Panthers – Son of former Saints great WR Joe Horn, first defender drafted in 2021
- Kwity Paye, EDGE, Indianapolis Colts – Athletic with a strong motor, could be one of the best edge defenders in the class
- Jaelan Phillips, EDGE, Miami Dolphins – Boasts strong pass-rush abilities, part of a tough defensive unit, could rack up sacks as a rookie
2021 NFL Rookie of the Year possibilities

Coming from the pro football factory at Alabama, Mac Jones looked sharp without pads in minicamp. Jones should be expected to meet Bill Belichick’s expectations when it comes to preparation and football IQ, but how quickly can it all come together? Cam Newton may be ahead of Jones on the depth chart for now, but Jones was handpicked by Belichick in the first round for a reason. It’s only a matter of time before the rookie hits the field.

Either the San Francisco 49ers continue to play the games they’ve played with Trey Lance and the media all along, or they really plan to wait for Jimmy Garoppolo to fail. Or get hurt. At this point, it seems Lance will have to be flawless to start under center Week 1 for the 49ers. Preseason can’t come soon enough for 49ers fans.
8. DeVonta Smith, wide receiver, Philadelphia Eagles

Selecting DeVonta Smith was a great pickup by Eagles general manager Howie Roseman. Now Smith and Jalen Reagor can compete to win the hearts of the Philly faithful. A 2020 Heisman Trophy winner, Smith gets to reunite with his college teammate Jalen Hurts in the NFL. After winning a national championship his senior season, Smith can help the Eagles compete in the NFC East.
7. Justin Fields, quarterback, Chicago Bears

The Chicago Bears say Andy Dalton is QB1? Don’t believe the hype. If Justin Fields gets his chance early enough, he’s a sleeper for NFL Rookie of the Year. ‘Da Bears plan to play Fields a lot in the preseason, maybe in that time the former Buckeye will have shown enough to move Dalton off QB1 status. It shouldn’t take long.
Early sleepers for 2021 ROY award
6. Jaylen Waddle, wide receiver, Miami Dolphins

With the Miami Dolphins reportedly planning to stretch the field more often, Jaylen Waddle is the perfect player to make it happen. A teammate of Tua Tagovailoa‘s at Alabama, Waddle could make an early splash for the Dolphins. Not only can Waddle help on offense, the Crimson Tide standout can also be a gamechanger on special teams returning kicks.

5. Micah Parsons, linebacker, Dallas Cowboys
If there’s one thing Micah Parsons has going for him, it’s being able to learn from two decorated linebackers in Jaylon Smith and Leighton Vander Esch who recently made the transition from college to the pros. The Cowboys will be creative with Parsons early to get him on the field in a variety of ways. If Parsons can help turn around the defense in the Big D, the sky is the limit for the Cowboys. Fans will get a closer look at Parsons via HBO’s Hard Knocks, which begins airing on August 10.

With Joe Burrow cleared for camp after his 2020 injury, he and Ja’Marr Chase can pick up where they left off at LSU. The top wide receiver selected in the 2021 NFL Draft after playing just two seasons in college, Chase oozes explosive potential. As the 2019 Fred Biletnikoff winner for the country’s best receiver, Chase is eager to earn his stripes with the Bengals. His hands already check out.
3. Kyle Pitts, tight end, Atlanta Falcons

As what some are calling the best tight-end prospect the NFL has ever seen, there’s a reason Kyle Pitts tied for the highest-drafted tight end in NFL draft history. For the Atlanta Falcons to be willing to trade Julio Jones, Pitts better be special. With Matt Ryan slinging him the football, Pitts has a good chance to compete for NFL Rookie of the Year.

Though the New York Jets are dragging their feet signing Zach Wilson to a mostly-set contract, the BYU standout has the keys to the offense in the Big Apple. That engine’s power greatly depends on the 22-year old’s ability to make the NFL transition. Wilson has all the tools to become broadway’s next star QB. The fans in New York will get their first chance to see Wilson up close for preseason action on August 14 against the Giants.

Becoming the face of the franchise the moment he was drafted, Trevor Lawrence enters the league as one the most-hyped QB prospects in history. An NFL Rookie of the Year favorite, how quickly the Clemson superstar is successful in the pros remains to be seen. Our first chance to see Lawrence in the preseason comes on August 14. Will Tim Tebow be there to haul in a few passes too?
Revisiting the 2020 NFL Rookies of the Year
The players from the 2020 NFL Draft class surpassed all expectations. Justin Jefferson and Justin Herbert broke rookie records. Joe Burrow gave Cincinnati Bengals fans hope until he suffered an unfortunate injury.
Chase Young became almost an instant force on the defensive line for the Washington Football Team. Antoine Winfield Jr. and Tristan Wirfs both started all 16 regular-season games on their way to winning Super Bowl LV with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
It was an incredible display of talent from an incoming group of players who had no idea what to expect with their first foray into the league, despite having fewer reps than their fellow rookies before them.
Of course, Justin Herbert went on to win the AP Offensive Rookie of the Year award and Chase Young won the AP Defensive Rookie of the Year award with their dominant performances. Young was a popular early pick for the trophy, but Herbert was not as he entered the season as a backup.
Will we see something similar for this year’s upcoming batch of rookies? Perhaps we’ll see another early runaway for NFL Rookie of the Year. Or maybe an unlikely sleeper candidate emerges.
With three preseason games this season, at least we’ll have a chance to see the rookie class in action before the real games start. When the Dallas Cowboys take on the Pittsburgh Steelers for the Pro Football Hall of Fame Game, it will be our first opportunity to watch pro football in nearly six months, you can bet the world will be tuning in. For many NFL fans, August 5th can’t come soon enough.

Favorites to Win
This multi-talented (and enviously coiffed) young quarterback had the NCAA football word’s attention for his three seasons at Clemson where he led the team to an overall 34-2 record with 90 touchdowns and just 17 interceptions during that time period.
More importantly, Lawrence completed almost 67 percent of his passes and ended his college career with a 164.3 passer rating plus he had almost a thousand rushing yards and another 18 rushing touchdowns thrown into the mix.
Those numbers caused Lawrence to become the NFL’s highest regarded amateur prospects this offseason and a clear favorite to be selected first overall, but whether he can heal what ails the struggling Jaguars still remains to be seen.
The Chicago Bears thought they had their franchise quarterback with Mitchell Trubisky, but his inconsistent play frustrated the otherwise talent-deep team, and now they are hoping that Ohio State’s Justin Fields can come in and make a difference under center.
Whether Fields starts right away for the Bears is a question that will be answered in September (check out our prior coverage on this issue), but regardless of when he begins to see playing time there is no question that he is expected to lead the team in the future.
To earn the coveted OROTY award, however, Fields would not only have to see a lot of snaps, he would also have to elevate the Bears’ overall effectiveness as a team and lead them deeper into the postseason than his predecessor, who could not get them past the Wild Card round.
This North Dakota State alum will be competing with Jimmy Garoppolo for the starting QB role in San Francisco, so whether the former Walter Payton and Jerry Rice Awards winner can earn that tough job is still anyone’s guess.
In college, Lance led the Bison to the 2020 NCAA Division I Football Championship Game and was named the game’s MVP after his team’s 28-20 win while completing almost 70 percent of his passes that season.
Lance will have a set of talented young receivers to target with Deebo Samuel and Brandon Aiyuk on his Niners’ offense, so it will be a matter of earning his playing time if he expects to win the OROTY award.
No Chance to Win
The last wide receiver to win the OROTY honors was Odell Beckham Jr. when he played for the Giants in 2014, so the Cardinals’ Rondale Moore has an uphill battle to climb if he expects to earn this award as a receiver.
Moore’s got the talent to do it – in his three seasons with Purdue, he posted almost 2,000 receiving yards and caught 14 touchdown passes plus he rushed for almost 250 yards and ran in another 3 scores during that time.
The biggest issue with Moore is his extensive injury history after having missed most of the 2019 season with a hamstring injury and all but three games in 2020 with an “unspecified lower-body injury” so his endurance and ability to stay on the field will be huge factors his rookie season.

NFL Offensive Rookie of The Year Odds 2021-22
The Offensive Rookie of The Year is one of the most talked-about and coveted awards in the National Football League. It is also one of the more popular future bets to make early on in training camp and before the season starts. Often times you can get yourself extremely great value on the player from the 2021 rookie class that you think will shine above the rest.
2020 OROY Aftermath
The 2020 Offensive Rookie of the Year race was one for the ages, with both Justin Jefferson and Justin Herbert vying for the award. Justin Jefferson made a strong case as he smashed the rookie record for receiving yards totaling 1400 exactly on the year. He did that on 88 receptions and found the endzone 7 times. For all intents and purposes, it was one of the best rookie receiver performances the NFL has ever seen, maybe only second to Randy Moss’s rookie season.
However, the victor would be Justin Herbert. Herbert did not just have a good rookie season, he had one of the very best for a quarterback. Herbert finished the season with the rookie record of 31 total touchdowns. He also threw for 4,336 yards which is second only to Andrew Luck. So, in the end, both Justin Jefferson and Justin Herbert put up all-time great rookie seasons for their position, and the award went to the more valuable position at quarterback.
How to Approach 2021 OROY Voting
After what we saw last season, my number one piece of advice is to fade all non-QBs. Now, this is not because I think a non-quarterback can ever win the award again, Herbert had a very good season which was unfortunate for Justin Jefferson. However, I think what we did see is that as long as a QB has a very good season, even an all-time best season will not win the award at another spot.
When looking at the 2021 draft class, there are 2 locked starters in Lawrence and Wilson, 2 QBs who will probably start in Fields and Lance, and another 1st round selection who might start in Jones. With so much talent at the QB spot, there is no way that none of these guys come close to Herberts’ performance and steals the OROY award away from even a historic season from an RB, TE, or WR.
Which QB Should You Choose?
The odds on favorite early on in the offseason is to no surprise Trevor Lawrence, a generational QB prospect who draws comparisons to Peyton Manning, Andrew Luck, and even John Elway. A GM famously said that they would have drafted+ Lawrence 1st overall out of High School. With that much talent, it almost does not matter who picks you, but the Jaguars’ spot is not a bad scenario.
Trevor Lawrence should have a ton of offensive weapons between DJ Chark, Marvin Jones Jr., Laviska Schenault, James Robinson, and his fellow Clemson teammate and rookie Travis Etienne. Another bonus for Lawrence is that the defense for the Jaguars is not that good. This means that there will be more pass attempts for the generational prospect.
The next favorite is the 49ers quarterback out of NDSU. Now, Lance only played one full season in college, but in that season at NDSU he threw for 28 touchdowns and 0 interceptions while leading the team to an FCS title. The 49ers traded a king’s ransom to move from 12 to 3, basically investing three first-round picks for Lance. This tells you that Kyle Shanahan thinks Lance is the missing part for this offense.
Lance will most likely not put up the craziest passing stats on a rush-first offense with an incredible defense. However, Lance has the best chance of leading his team to a playoff birth and could tear up the NFC West on the ground. If you believe in this 49ers team, I could see betting on Lance just due to the fact that the team could finish 1st in the entire NFC. A finish like that could warrant the award on its own.
Justin Fields was another quarterback that saw multiple first-round selections used to go and grab him. The Bears traded next year’s first as well as their 1st rounder in 2021 to move up with the Giants and draft Justin Fields. It was clear that the Bears needed a quarterback, and they went and got one that many feel should have gone earlier. Before Zach Wilson’s fantastic season, many projected Fields as the #2 overall selection.
Justin Fields is another player who may not put up the craziest stats due to the offensive system, but the team is good enough to get into the playoffs, which can help mightly when trying to win OROY. My biggest worry with Fields is Matt Nagy’s playcalling, as it simply has not been good in previous years, and this could cause Fields to struggle, especially early on. I think this is my least favorite out of the four wagers at the moment.
Zach Wilson was the 2nd overall selection in the 2021 NFL Draft. Wilson was able to raise his stock in 2020 with an unreal performance for BYU, where he simply dominated in every aspect of the game. Wilson showed off elite arm talent, scramble ability, and a deep understanding of the game. Due to that 2020 tape, the new coaching staff in New York, led by Head Coach Robert Salah and Offensive Coordinator Mike LaFleur have taken the chance on him being the future.
I absolutely love the Zach Wilson wager at +700. Not only do I believe that Zach Wilson is the only rookie quarterback comparable in talent to Trevor Lawrence, but he has the weapons around him to succeed. The left side of his offensive line may be one of the best in football with Becton and Vera-Tucker. Then, his receiving weapons include Denzel Mims, Corey Davis, Jamison Crowder, Elijah Moore, and Chris Herndon. That is a ton of very very promising young talent.
The defense still has a ways to go, which means a lot of passing game scripts for the young quarterback. Which, combined with my belief in the talent of Wilson and the play-calling of Mike LaFleur, sounds like a recipe for an OROY season from the former BYU quarterback.
2021 Offensive Rookie Of The Year Odds & NFL Picks
Stephen Lew/Icon Sportswire
Nothing generates excitement in NFL circles quite like a talented new rookie. They give bad teams hope for the future and good teams a better shot at postseason glory. The ones that really make an impact have a shot at glory of their own—like winning Offensive Rookie of the Year (OROY) honors.
While seven of the last ten winners were quarterbacks, it would seem like going with a QB is the way to go. But when it comes to OROY, it is not as much the position that matters; it is the opportunity to play and make an impact.
With many teams taking the ‘learn by doing’ approach with rookie quarterbacks and starting them in Week One, many have been in a position to have an award-worthy season. But in the past, quarterbacks almost always sat during their rookie season.
However, that was not the case with running backs, though. That is likely why the award has favored running backs over the years. Beginning with the first OROY in 1967 (Mel Farr, Detroit Lions), running backs have won OROY honors 35 times (wide receivers have won it nine times).
Who is going to win it this year? According to the NFL betting odds, a quarterback is going to win:

|Terrace Marshall Jr||+5500||+5000||+5000|
Tips To Help Pick An Offensive Rookie Of The Year Candidate
When it comes to picking an OROY candidate to bet on, it is not as easy as just going with a superstar off one of the best teams in the league (like with the NFL MVP). While winning games can undoubtedly help a player’s candidacy, losing does not preclude someone from being a viable candidate.
Last year’s winner, Justin Herbert, came from a team with a losing record (Los Angeles Chargers, 7-9). Kyler Murray and the Arizona Cardinals (2019 winner) finished with a 5-10-1 record. Saquan Barkley’s Giants (2018 winner) were just 5-11.
In recent years, the preseason favorites have done well winning two of the last three (Barkley, +155; Murray, +150). But longshots (anyone with odds over +1000) have fared even better with wins in four of the last seven years.
Herbert’s odds were +3000 when the season began. Alvin Kamara’s were even deeper at +5000 (2017 winner). There was not much hope for then-New York Giants wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr. in 2014, either (+2500).
For OROY, it is all about opportunity—which means you have to get on the field. When it comes to rookies, the guys more likely to play right away will be first-round picks. First-round picks have done well, winning seven of the last ten. But do not get locked into the No. 1 pick too soon; they have only won twice in the last decade.
Okay, so how do you pick a good OROY candidate? First-rounders are good but be wary of the No. 1 pick. Historically, running backs have a great shot, but quarterbacks have had a better one in recent years. It helps if a player is on a winning team, but it is far from imperative.
Does that clear things up?

OROY Betting Recommendations And Predictions
Trevor Lawrence may be the favorite for Offensive Rookie of the Year, but with the Jaguars’ roster, he does not have much to work with. It does not help that he has a rookie head coach coming out of retirement that has never worked in the NFL before, either.
Of the rookie quarterbacks, the two with the best chance are probably Zach Wilson and Mac Jones. Wilson appears to have all the intangibles a rookie needs to make an award-worthy splash, and he has a solid group of receivers that will help make him look good. Jones has the better offensive coordinator, but his supporting cast is lackluster, and he will need to beat out Cam Newton for the starter’s role.
Justin Fields and Trey Lance are far from guaranteed to play. Even if Fields does play, the Bears do not have much to work with on offense. Lance is more likely to start next season than this one.
Kyle Pitts is in a good position with the Atlanta Falcons, but there may be too many talented wide receivers on the roster for him to get enough balls thrown his way. Ja’Marr Chase, on the other hand, will probably see plenty of throws from Joe Burrow. Since the Bengals will likely be playing from behind a lot, he will have the much-needed opportunity as well.
With how the running game held the Steelers back last season, if Najee Harris can provide Pittsburgh with a solid ground game, he will have a good shot.
DeVonta Smith and Jaylen Waddle both have potential, but their respective quarterback situations are too iffy for either to be a solid bet.

— NFL (@NFL) May 11, 2021
So—Who Should You Bet On?
Zach Wilson and Ja’Marr Chase may be in the best positions to have an award-worthy rookie season. Both will play right away, and both are set up well to be productive from the start (or at least have the chance to be productive).
If you are looking to put money down on an Offensive Rookie of the Year right now, look at some of the longshots. Trey Sermon is certainly in a good spot with the run-friendly 49ers. If you believe in Lamar Jackson, then Rashod Bateman may be worth a flier. Rondale Moore could be a great one for the Cardinals if Kyler Murray can continue progressing as an NFL quarterback.
You could wait until the picture clears up a little before putting your money down. But by then, the odds on the potential winners will be relatively low—along with the payout.
Where’s the fun in that?
Bet on Najee Harris Winning 2021 Offensive Rookie of the Year

Najee Harris has the seventh-best odds to win 2021 Offensive Rookie of the Year, according to MyBookie. He is behind Trevor Lawrence, Trey Lance, Justin Fields, Mac Jones, Zach Wilson, and Kyle Pitts. That might seem like a long shot, considering seventh-best odds do not seem like a great bet. But Najee probably has a better chance of winning 2021 Offensive Rookie of the Year than the other six players mentioned.
Harris’ odds to win the 2021 Offensive Rookie of the Year award currently sits at +850. For those who don’t know exactly what that means, here is an example. If you were to bet ten dollars on Harris to win OROTY, you would win 85 dollars. If you were to bet one dollar, you would win eight dollars and fifty cents. If you were to place a bet of 200 dollars, you would win 1,700 dollars. And so on.
Clearly, a bet on Harris to win the 2021 Offensive Rookie of the Year award would make a lot of money, IF he were to win the award. He may not have the best betting odds, but he has the best chance to win it. It only takes a little digging to see why. Comparing the circumstances surrounding Harris to the other rookies, and looking at data from past winners, Harris is clearly a great bet to be the 2021 Offensive Rookie of the Year.
Najee Harris Will be the 2021 Offensive Rookie of the Year
First: All the past winners of the offensive rookie of the year award. Dating back to 1967, there have been a total of 53 OROTY awards handed out. To clarify, these awards are by the Associated Press, the group that the NFL uses to decide its awards. Since that time, 35 running backs have won the award.
Only ten quarterbacks and eight receivers have received the award. Twice, running backs have won the award five years in a row, and once seven times in a row. The most recent running back to receive the award is Saquon Barkley who won it in 2018. The last two winners are Kyler Murray and Justin Herbert.
Clearly, the odds are in the running backs’ favor to win offensive rookie of the year. However, there has been a recent trend towards quarterbacks receiving the award. Since 2004, when rookie Ben Roethlisberger won the award, nine quarterbacks have won offensive rookie of the year. In that time span, six running backs have won it, and two wide receivers.
This trend is slightly concerning. The NFL is certainly built for the quarterback, not the running back. But this leads to the second thing that I wanted to point out. Who did the last two OROTY winners beat out for their award? This is an important question and does tie back to my original point about Najee Harris.
The last two players to win OROTY were quarterbacks. Now, this could mean a few things. One, that the NFL is more likely to give the award to a quarterback than it is not. This seems to be true, and the last 17 years of data point towards that trend.
Competition for OROTY has not been very strong
However, this could also mean that the competition for the award over the last two years has not been strong. Particularly from the running back position. And this is where I want to focus. In 2019, the five top running backs in the class were Miles Sanders, Damien Harris, Darrell Henderson, Josh Jacobs, and David Montgomery. In retrospect, this class was not very good. The best running back out of this class in their rookie year was Josh Jacobs, who had just over 1,300 total yards in 2019.
Jacobs was also the only running back drafted in the first round, and the only running back of this class to break 1,000 yards rushing as a rookie. Kyler Murray, on the other hand, was electric during his rookie year. Murray thew for 3,700 yards, and 20 touchdowns. He also ran for 544 yards and four touchdowns. Murray was simply more impactful during the season than Jacobs.
Moving to 2020, the top running backs were D’Andre Swift, J.K. Dobbins, Jonathan Taylor, Clyde Edwards-Helaire, and Cam Akers. And, while 2020 was a difficult year for rookies, non of the rookie running backs seemed to do much of anything until later in the season. The best one among them was Jonathan Taylor, who had about 1,400 yards from scrimmage.
The winner of the 2020 Offensive Rookie of the Year award, Justin Herbert, had a much better season. He threw for 31 touchdowns, and 4,300 yards. He was much more impactful to the Los Angles Chargers than Jonathan Taylor was to the Indianapolis Colts offense.
In both of these instances, the quarterback won the OROTY award, but not necessarily because of the position they play. Rather, the competition for the award was pretty awful, compared to the quarterbacks. This leads to 2021. Can the rookie quarterbacks easily outclass all other competition for OROTY? Probably not.

First off, the chances that Trevor Lawrence wins the award are, in my opinion, low. He has a horrible landing spot from which to do it. The Jacksonville Jaguars are not exactly brimming with talent. Sure, they have a running back, but that is about it. Lawrence would have to throw for over 4,500 yards and lead the Jaguars to seven wins or more to win the award. That just will not happen.
The Jaguars defense is so bad that Lawrence will not have any help, at all, in case the offense turns over the ball. And a late-game stop to get the ball back to the offense? You might as well forget about it. It won’t happen.
What about Trey Lance? He lands in a great situation. But the problem is twofold: Lance has not played football in over a year, and more importantly, he is not the Week 1 starter. No one knows when Lance will start, probably including Kyle Shanahan.
And if Lance does not start until Week 6 or later, he has no real chance to win 2021 Offensive Rookie of the Year because his numbers will not be near everyone else’s.
Mac Jones/Justin Fields
That leaves us with Mac Jones and Justin Fields. Jones has the same problem as Lance, no one knows when he will start. Even if Jones starts week one, his chances of winning 2021 Offensive Rookie of the Year are pretty bad. Why? He has no weapons.
The New England Patriots have arguably the worst skill position groups in the NFL. Jones will have a tough time winning with that roster, no matter when he starts. And because he does not have the athletic traits that the other rookie quarterbacks do, he will have an even harder time elevating that roster. The same can be said for Zach Wilson. While he has much better traits, his offensive weapons are simply very lacking. With a new head coach, Wilson is not a safe bet.
Out of all the rookie quarterbacks, Fields has the best circumstances and subsequently, the greatest chance to win 2021 Offensive Rookie of the Year. He provides the most competition for Najee Harris for the award. Fields has a solid offensive line, solid receiving core, and a still good defense. Pair that with Matt Nagy, Fields has a real shot to win 2021 Offensive Rookie of the Year. However, I don’t think that he will garner numbers like Najee Harris will.
Najee Harris will tote the ball
Cam Heyward, Harris’ new teammate, recently interviewed on Good Morning Football, where he said: “Having a guy like that that can tote the rock 30 to 40 times a game really puts an ease for the defense. He can do multiple things. I think the investment in our offense this offseason has been huge.”
Heyward clearly knows and anticipates Harris to touch the football a lot. Forty times a game? No, Heyward was exaggerating, but 30 times a game? That is much more probable. Especially considering the Pittsburgh Steelers plans to use split Harris out as a receiver, as well as tote the football. Harris himself said that the Steelers will, “line me up out wide and stuff like that how I did in college — utilize the running back in the passing game out wide, in the slot, (and) all the way out to the ‘X’ position.”
Harris will touch the football, and in abundance. He probably will get close to 350 touches this season. And if he does that, he probably will have over 1,500 yards from scrimmage. 15 touchdowns is not too high a mark either. The change and upgrade that he will bring to the Steelers offense are probably what will win him the award, if he does win it.
The change in the Steelers’ run game will be noticeable, and it will be largely due to Harris. Looking back at the odds, if you have 200 dollars that you are willing to make a smart bet with, bet on Harris to win 2021 Offensive Rookie of the Year. He has the best chance out of all the other running backs, what with Travis Etienne and Javonte Williams not being starters on their respective teams.
Najee Harris Has the Best Circumstances to Win
Harris has the best situation out of all the rookies to win OROTY. He will be the number one back for the Steelers, touch the ball over 20 times a game, and be the new focal point on the Steelers offense. The other rookie quarterbacks will be learning how to read defenses and build chemistry with their receivers. Harris will just be looking for the open gap in the line and hurdling defenders.
So, if you want to make a smart bet, put some money down on Najee Harris to win offensive rookie of the year. With +850 odds, 200 dollars turns into 1,700. And if you are feeling a little worried that Fields might win it instead, place some money on Fields. 200 dollars on Fields at +550 odds would win you 1,100 dollars. Either way you bet, you have a pretty good chance to win.
Now, I did not cover Kyle Pitts or Ja’Marr Chase for good reason. First, a tight end has never won the award. No matter how talented Pitts is, the tight end position is the one the takes the longest to learn. And with Chase, the competition from the running back and quarterbacks seems just too high for him to receive the award. Finally, neither one will make you as much money as Najee Harris will if you bet on Harris.

NFL Rookie Of The Year Odds: Offensive And Defensive Award
After months of mock drafts and anticipation, the top players in the 2021 NFL Draft have found new homes. Top picks Trevor Lawrence and Zach Wilson predictably went to the Jaguars and Jets, respectively, while players like Jaycee Horn and Zaven Collins came off the board earlier than expected.
Now that the players are placed, let’s take a look at the latest odds for both Offensive Rookie of the Year and Defensive Rookie of the Year, as well as contenders for each award.
NFL Rookie of the Year odds
Here are NFL Rookie of the Year odds heading into the 2021 season. Click on the price(s) you like to bet now.
Offensive Rookie of the Year candidates
Trevor Lawrence, QB, Jaguars: Ever since high school, Lawrence has been seen as the next can’t-miss prospect. He joined the likes of Andrew Luck and John Elway to be titled “can’t miss” and he’s been the surefire No. 1 pick since his college debut in 2018.
Finally, Lawrence is a Jaguar. He’s been handed the keys to the franchise immediately and – similar to Joe Burrow of last year – is the early favorite to win OROY based on his projected volume and opportunity alone. Jacksonville has plenty of weapons like D.J. Chark, Laviska Shenault, Marvin Jones, and now Travis Etienne. Barring an unforeseen collapse, T-Law will maintain favorite status through the early season.
Zach Wilson, QB, Jets: Like Lawrence, Zach Wilson was drafted to be a Day 1 starter and the next face of the franchise. He’s a flashy playmaker who was compared to both Patrick Mahomes and Aaron Rodgers on draft night. While those are lofty comparisons, Wilson does possess the traits to be the best rookie of this draft.
New York has a new regime, including head coach Robert Saleh (previously of the Kyle Shanahan system) and a plethora of new players like Corey Davis, Dan Feeney, and now Alijah Vera-Tucker. It’s clear New York wants to build around Wilson and avoid another high-capital QB disaster. Early odds center around quarterbacks who will get the most opportunity; it’s clear Wilson will have plenty of volume.
Justin Fields, QB, Bears: In what might be the biggest surprise of Round 1, the Bears traded up to grab Justin Fields after he fell to No. 11. The old “QB1” tweet regarding Andy Dalton after he was landed in free agency is likely defunct. Even if Fields isn’t the Week 1 starter, it can be presumed that if the Bears aren’t winning games, he’ll take the field sooner rather than later.
Fields was a star at Ohio State and has the traits to be a star in the NFL. While he’s fighting an uphill battle against Lawrence and Wilson, if he gets the opportunity Fields could seize it and be the top QB in this draft class (likely winning him OROY). The Bears will look to surround him with some more talent and he’s looking to break the stigma of both Ohio State quarterbacks in the NFL and the string of Bears’ quarterbacks.
Najee Harris, RB, Steelers: The top five choices for OROY are unsurprisingly all quarterbacks; high capital was spent on these guys and two of them were acquired after a team traded up to get them. Najee Harris leads the group of non-quarterbacks after being drafted to the ideal scenario: Pittsburgh.
Harris looks like Derrick Henry but plays faster and is a more efficient pass catcher. An aging and physically limited Ben Roethlisberger will help the campaign for Harris, who is expected to be the immediate bell cow for the Steelers. The common theme for OROY candidates is volume and Harris will see plenty of volume (potentially upward of 20 touches per game). Expect Pittsburgh to return to smashmouth football now that they have their next guy.
Kyle Pitts, TE, Falcons: Pitts became the highest-drafted tight end in NFL history when the Atlanta Falcons pulled the trigger at No. 4. With new head coach Arthur Smith coming off a year which he propelled tight end Jonnu Smith to almost 500 yards and eight touchdowns in Tennessee, Pitts may become a focal point in this offense.
It’s clear Atlanta is comfortable rolling with Matt Ryan for the remainder of his contract (another two seasons) and now he has one of the best arsenals in all of the NFL. Other pass catchers on the team like Calvin Ridley and Julio Jones should free up Pitts and allow him plenty of opportunity – especially near the goal line. Pitts is one of the biggest studs in this class and it’d be no surprise to see him near the top of OROY odds boards all season long.
Ja’Marr Chase, WR, Bengals: Joe Burrow, the Bengals’ last No. 1 pick, gets his favorite college teammate to work with in Cincinnati. Chase opted out of 2020, but the last time he was on the field he put up a blistering 1,780 receiving yards and 20 receiving touchdowns (most in FBS).
Despite the Bengals already rostering Tyler Boyd and Tee Higgins, we can expect the passing offense to run through Chase, who was projected to be the top receiver picked in last year’s class should he have been eligible. The path for Chase to be considered for OROY is the path former LSU teammate Justin Jefferson took last year – a path that’s completely within the realm of possibility with Burrow under center.
Jaylen Waddle, WR, Dolphins: Despite being drafted after Chase, Jaylen Waddle may be presented with the most opportunity of any of the receivers in this class. Waddle is most dangerous with the football in his hands and the Dolphins know that; expect him to be used in a similar vein to Tyreek Hill – with plenty of end around and sweep opportunities.
Waddle will see a ton of work in the return game, too, as he was an electric returnman with the Crimson Tide. Like Chase, he’s reunited with his former quarterback Tua Tagovailoa, which could boost Tagovailoa’s production after a mild rookie year. Waddle also has the benefit of starting the year as the WR1 for Miami, which will be without newly-signed Will Fuller for the first game of the year (PED suspension).
Defensive Rookie of the Year candidates
Micah Parsons, LB, Cowboys: The Dallas Cowboys were able to trade back and still land their guy after both top corners came off the board in the top 10. Parsons leads a crop of extremely gifted linebackers who excel in physical freakishness and versatility. Though he sat out 2020, it’s apparent he’s still pro-ready.
Parsons fills a void recently left by the retiring of longtime captain Sean Lee for Dallas and he’s a projected Day-1 starter. With division rivals loading up on “offensive weapons” and versatile athletes like DeVonta Smith (Eagles), Kadarius Toney (Giants), and Curtis Samuel (Washington), Parsons is a perfect counter. He’s an elite pass rusher, as well, which will help bolster is DROY campaign.
Kwity Paye, EDGE, Colts: What a gift Paye was for Inday, falling to No. 21. The Colts are the ideal system for him as they run a similar defensive scheme at Michigan. Though he strays from the physical archetype of other recent pass rushers, Paye is promised to be a productive edge rusher for years to come.
He also has the benefit of playing against a division that’s weak in the offensive line (the exception, of course, being the team he was drafted to). To further benefit Paye’s rookie year, he plays next to DeForest Buckner and across from either Tyquan Lewis or Al-Quadin Muhammed. The case against his DROY run, though, is that – with such a loaded defensive front – Paye may lose snaps in favor of other players.
Jaelan Phillips, EDGE, Dolphins: Good news all around for Phillips. He was drafted into an elite defensive system, becomes an instant Day-1 starter, will be used flexibly in a 3-4 system, doesn’t have to move cities, and doesn’t have to change his wardrobe much.
Phillips might be the most ferocious and explosive player from a deep defensive class and will see plenty of work and movement with the Dolphins. Despite lacking a true dominant pass rusher (sorry, Emmanuel Ogbah), the Dolphins were able to land 10th in sacks per game and 14th in pass rush, per PFF. Phillips will have ample opportunities to get to the QB and, if he gets home, could wreak havoc in the AFC East.
Jayson Oweh, EDGE, Ravens: For the first time in what seems like forever, the Baltimore Ravens lacked an elite pass rush in 2020. Enter Jayson Oweh, who comes into the league with all of the physical gifts needed to dominate on the defensive front. He joins a crew headlined by All Pros like Calais Campbell and Tyus Bowser. The unit is also backed by one of the best secondaries in the NFL.
Oweh is a developmental player that NFL GMs love. He’s raw and has little experience (he only began playing football as a junior in high school), but has one of the highest ceilings of any pass rusher in the draft. He sits as a long shot because of his potentially-stunted opportunity (he’s not a guaranteed starter) and because of his lack of technical knowledge and experience.
Patrick Surtain II, CB, Broncos: Top-10 capital, elite pedigree, a defensive-minded head coach, and elite teammates – what’s there not to like about Surtain’s circumstances?
Surtain was hailed as the best corner in the class and was nearly drafted like it if Carolina hadn’t pulled the trigger on Jaycee Horn earlier than expected. However, he will be tested in a division with some of the best arms in the NFL like Patrick Mahomes and Justin Herbert. He’ll also be tasked with defending some of the fastest players like Tyreek Hill and former teammate Henry Ruggs. Should he stand out with those assignments, Surtain could be a favorite later in the season.
Jamin Davis, LB, WFT: When discussing opportunity, no one has a better shot than Jamin Davis. He’s drafted to be a Day-1 starter behind the league’s most fearsome defensive front. Washington was top-5 in sack rate and PFF’s pass rush grades in 2020 and fielded the previous DROY (Chase Young).
With so much emphasis put on their front four and the other two linebackers (Jon Bostic and Cole Holcomb combined for 5.5 sacks of their own), Davis could be a free man on many plays. At Kentucky, he was an efficient run-stopper and had some of the best instincts among linebackers in the nation. Davis is a huge cog in the machine that keeps the NFC East up at night.

90,000 Best NFL Rookie of the Year Offensive Odds for 2021
Bookmakers are still reluctant to publish too many props for seasonal players. In the meantime, we can break down some of the awards they have posted odds for. In this particular article, we’ll focus on the Offensive Rookie of the Year award, looking at all the odds, as well as some of my thoughts on specific pricing. Using bookmakers in Illinois, here are the best odds for each player.
2021 Offensive Rookie of the Year Odds
|Kyle Pitts||+1 300||FanDuel|
|Naji Harris||+1 500||FanDuel|
|Ja’Marr Chase||+1 500||FanDuel|
|DeVonta Smith||+1 700||FanDuel|
|Jaylen Waddle||+1 700||FanDuel|
|Marshall Jr. ‘s Terrace.||+6000||FanDuel|
Offensive Rookie Trends of the Year
- As the NFL gets more and more complex, I will mainly look at the data from 2010.
- Unlike the MVP, which almost always goes to the quarterback, the player has won this award only six times in the past 11 years. The running defenders have won four times, while Odell Beckham Jr. was the only wide wing to have won.
- Eight of the last 11 winners were selected in the first round. The winners selected outside the first round were Alvin Camara, Duck Prescott and Eddie Lacey.
Rookie Notes of the Year
- Number 1 in the overall rating Trevor Lawrence is a favorite in almost all bookmakers. Questions remain about Urbana Meyer as the head coach of the NFL and whether Lawrence’s talent can make up for the rest of the squad’s shortcomings.
- Justin Fields, Trey Lance, Mc Jones and Zach Wilson are among the next group of players with the highest odds. Interestingly, only Wilson is locked up until the start of the first week.
- Tight End Kyle Pitts is the first skill player on the list. The only tough end to win the Rookie of the Year Offensive Game since 1957 was Mike Dietka (1961).If Julio Jones gets hit, I’ll be more inclined to hit Pitts.
- Naji Harris became the first runner to achieve the +1500 mark. It’s only +800 on DraftKings, which means FanDuel is likely underpriced a bit. The Steelers are one of the few teams that will still rely on feedback, and they have invested in the first round of the Harris draft. He would normally be a much more attractive option given his intended role, but he needs to compete with at least two (and maybe five) starting quarterbacks. Harris could have had a great season and still miss out on this award. He will not only need to crush, but every other quarterback mid-season.
- Ja’Marr Chase, DeVonta Smith and Jaylen Waddle are grouped together by odds and are among the top three picks in the NFL Draft. All of them will immediately play a big role. Odell Beckham was the only player to receive this award in 11 years, and has amassed 1,305 yards and 12 touchdowns in 90 receptions in just 11 games.
- The next players at odds are a group of fugitives represented by Travis Etienne (+2000), Havonte Williams (+3000) and Trey Sermon (+3000).All of them have backfield competition, but with a breakout early in the season or injury to their opponents, they can have a big rookie.
- Kyle Trask is an interesting 100/1 player. If, for some reason, Tom Brady goes out of action early in the season, Trask will receive high-end weaponry and strong protection. A lot has to happen, but this is more than just a chance. In PointsBet it is 50/1. Far from being a guarantee, head coach Bruce Arians praises the young signalman.
: Check out our series of in-depth player profiles to learn more about the Rookie class upcoming this year.
The attacking Rookie of the Year market is quite efficient and difficult to position. Trevor Lawrence is likely to win given his talent, but Justin Fields or Trey Lance can easily surpass him as they play on the best teams. Normally I’d be much more interested in early round one backback that should have gotten a job like Naji Harris, but with up to five quarterbacks starting this season, it’s hard to imagine even one unsuccessful.Anyway, my game would be to spray 10 units on Kyle Trask. If Brady falls, he will most likely hit the center, and he will have what he needs to succeed quickly.

90,000 When was the last time Robert Griffin III started an NFL game?
Author: Elena Alekseeva
Date of publication: 05.27.2021
Author rating: 2.5 / 5
Baltimore Ravens quarterback Robert Griffin III is still strong, even if he didn’t think his career would turn out that way.
Less than a decade ago, Griffin was an explosive double-threat quarterback who received the Offensive Rookie of the Year award. Various injuries reduced Griffin’s effectiveness, and he took up a backup role behind Ravens star Lamar Jackson.
Should a situation arise where Griffin needs the Baltimore Ravens to start instead of Jackson, he certainly has experience. When was the last time Griffin played in the NFL?
Robert Griffin II II now supports Lamar Jackson
Robert Griffin III is in foreign territory where he may not have gone bankrupt, but he also had a disappointing career.
Griffin is only 30 years old and has plenty of time to add to his resume and possibly get a new starting job. For now, Griffin’s role is to support Lamar Jackson, the current MVP in Baltimore.
Griffin is making $ 2 million in base salary this year, which is never a bad thing for someone the team hopes will only play in the field. Baltimore has also always given Griffin the opportunity to speak out for social justice on his Twitter.
Still, the sight of Griffin on the bench during games is bittersweet. Griffin spent the 2017 season out of the league and questions have arisen about whether he will ever play again.
Griffin had a historic rookie season in Washington
@RGIII Rookie Year was the absolute 1win casino cheat. 🎮
Robert Griffin III, winner of the 2011 Heisman Trophy at Baylor, entered the NFL with great success.
Second overall pick in 2012 after Andrew Luck switched to the Colts, it didn’t take long for Griffin to prove that the Washington Redskins had picked him right.Griffin completed 65.6% of passes at 3200 yards, 20 touchdowns and 5 interceptions in 16 starts.
The dynamic double-threat quarterback added 815 yards and seven fumbles for 6.8 yards per carry.
It turns out that Washington, which won the NFC Eastern Division 10-6, has finally gotten a franchise defender. Unfortunately for all parties, Griffin suffered a serious knee injury while losing the NFC round to Russell Wilson and the Seahawks.
Griffin raced back to start the 2013 season and Washington authorized it.It turned out to be the wrong move, and Griffin never played at the same level.
Another injury in 2014 pushed Kirk Cousins into the squad, and the rest was history for Griffin of Washington.
When was the last time Robert Griffin III played in the NFL?
Sunday start QB Robert Griffin III for Ravens: “I’m not making this game about me.” pic.twitter.com/ssvanevx4e
– Jeff Zrebiec (@jeffzrebiec) December 24, 2019
It’s easy to forget, but Robert Griffin III played five games for the Cleveland Browns in 2016.
Griffin made 59.2% passes for 886 yards, two touchdowns and three interceptions. He also ran 190 yards and landed twice at 6.1 yards per carry.
Griffin’s only win, a week 16 win over Philip Rivers and the Chargers, prevented Cleveland from going 0-16.
Griffin also started week 17 of the 2016 season, but this two-touch performance on January 1, 2017 isn’t his last start.
In the 2019 Regular Season Finals, the Baltimore Ravens kicked off with Griffin as quarterback.Griffin completed 11 assists from 21 for 96 yards and an interception, beating the Steelers 28-10. He also ran 50 yards on eight transfers.
Suppose Baltimore needs Griffin instead of Jackson someday. In that case, nothing stands in the way of his success – and given how inconsistent Baltimore’s offense has been this season, perhaps Griffin’s temporary change could pay off.
On March 12, PIR Center, in partnership with the Diplomatic Academy of the Russian Foreign Ministry, held an expert seminar on the topic “50 years of the NPT ratification by the Soviet Union and its entry into force: lessons from the past, a look into the future”. The seminar was attended by 45 people. At the beginning of the seminar, PIR Center Director Vladimir Orlov and Director of the Institute of Contemporary International Problems of the Russian Ministry of Foreign Affairs Oleg Karpovich made a welcoming speech.
The event consisted of 2 sessions.
– Lessons from the past
– Looking to the future
Within the framework of the discussion, the following issues were raised:
– maintaining the necessary balance between the development of atomic energy for peaceful purposes with strengthening
– the nuclear non-proliferation regime and the IAEA safeguards system;
– nuclear five as a new element of the nuclear non-proliferation regime;
– Creation of a zone free of weapons of mass destruction in the Middle East;
– Prospects for agreeing on the text of the final document of the OK NPT 2020; criteria for evaluating the success / failure of the final document.
Deputy Director of the Department for Nonproliferation and Arms Control of the Russian Ministry of Foreign Affairs Oleg Rozhkov , Adviser to the General Director of Rosatom State Corporation Vladimir Artisyuk , Junior Researcher of the Sector for Military-Political Analysis and Research Projects of the Center for International Security of the National Research Institute world economy and international relations named after E.M. Primakov of the Russian Academy of Sciences (IMEMO RAS) Daria Selezneva , PIR Center consultant Andrei Baklitsky , Associate Professor of the Department of International and National Security of the Diplomatic Academy of the Russian Ministry of Foreign Affairs Andrei Malov , editor of the bulletin Yaderny Kontrol Adlan , Director PIR -Center Vladimir Orlov .
The following also took part in the discussions: Head of the Korea and Mongolia Department of the Institute of Oriental Studies of the Russian Academy of Sciences Alexander Vorontsov , Consultant of the PIR Center Albert Zulkharneev , Visiting Lecturer of the Nonproliferation of WMD Master’s Degree at MGIMO of the Russian Ministry of Foreign Affairs Alexei Ubeev Vladimir , Independent Expert , Assistant of the Department of Theory and History of International Relations, UrFU Ekaterina Lapanovich, Associate Professor of the Department of International Law of MGIMO of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Russia Mikhail Lysenko, Associate Professor of the Department of Theory and History of International Relations UrFU Ekaterina Mikhailenko.
SESSION 1. Lessons from the past
Rozhkov Oleg Vyacheslavovich, z Deputy Director of the Department for Nonproliferation and Arms Control of the Russian Foreign Ministry, noted that Russia, as a depository country, stood at the origins of the NPT, which imposes a special responsibility on it. He stressed that the Russian Federation strictly fulfills its obligations under Article VI. In addition, Russia is interested in extending the START Treaty: “This would be a reasonable step that would contribute to strengthening international stability.”
Artisyuk Vladimir Vasilyevich , Adviser to the General Director of State Corporation Rosatom, stated , that Russia consistently advocates wide access of the NPT member states to the benefits of the peaceful atom and the development of international cooperation in this area. He drew attention to the need to maintain a balance between the use of atomic energy for peaceful purposes and the strengthening of the nuclear non-proliferation regime. “The main takeaway from our engagement with the IAEA and newcomer countries is that the global development of nuclear power, subject to the IAEA safeguards regime, appears to be a powerful factor in reducing inequality between developed and developing countries and can serve as a factor in strengthening the NPT.”
Selezneva Daria Aleksandrovna, Junior Researcher, Sector for Military-Political Analysis and Research Projects, Center for International Security, IMEMO RAN, noted the existence of many external and internal challenges to the NPT regime, creating uncertainty and the possibility of negative consequences. Among such threats were the multiple interpretations of the Treaty, the lack of response mechanisms, contradictions between nuclear and non-nuclear states, and the growing demand for nuclear energy.According to the speaker, the results of the Review Conference will largely depend on the readiness of states for dialogue and discussion of these problems and the search for their solutions .
After the reports, a discussion took place. Below are some comments from participants:
- Alexey Ubeev, Visiting teacher of the Master’s program “Nonproliferation of weapons of mass destruction” at MGIMO MFA RF : Failure to accept the final document does not mean failure. If the functioning of the treaty [without the adoption of the final document] continues, then you need to come to terms with it.
- Vladimir Artisyuk , Adviser to the General Director of the State Atomic Energy Corporation Rosatom: [To push the non-nuclear countries aside the issues of disarmament and nonproliferation, we can] give the seriousness of the climate agenda. Nuclear power can play a role in the fight against climate change. Most research reactors in the world are Russian-made. [We] have proven to the world the viability of peaceful uses of energy
SESSION 2. Looking into the future
Andrey A. Baklitsky , PIR Center consultant, spoke about the nuclear five in the modern conditions of the nonproliferation regime.A. Baklitsky believes that the London meeting of representatives of the “nuclear five” held in February demonstrated, on the one hand, the enormous potential of the group, within which the readiness of the nuclear states to conduct a dialogue is observed, and, on the other hand, the lack of an agreed position of the parties. The five’s capabilities are hampered by internal contradictions within the group and the lack of political will to discuss truly important security issues.
Malov Andrey Yuryevich , Associate Professor of the Department of International and National Security of the Diplomatic Academy of the Russian Foreign Ministry , examined the influence of the nuclear disarmament factor on the future of the NPT regime.In his opinion, at the NPT Review Conference, nuclear states will become the object of intense criticism from anti-nuclear states, which will also be intensified by internal contradictions within the “five”. A. Malov believes that in modern realities “the factor of nuclear disarmament may acquire a more serious and profound impact on the regime of compliance with the Treaty” than ever before, and can also have a significant impact on the course and results of the 2020 Review Conference.
Orlov Vladimir Andreevich , Director of the PIR Center, noted the presence of Middle East issues in the disarmament process and, in particular, reviewed the results of the November UN Conference on WMD-Free Zone in the Middle East.Within the framework of a rich and constructive dialogue, the 1995 resolution was implemented, the complementarity of the two sites, the NPT and the UN, was demonstrated, and a clear signal was given that this process would continue. V. Orlov noted that the creation of a WMD-free zone in the Middle East fully meets the interests of Russia, which consistently supports the idea of its creation.
Margoev Adlan Ramzanovich , Editor of the Yaderny Kontrol bulletin, analyzed in detail the prospects of various scenarios for agreeing on the text of the final document of the 2020 NPT Review Conference. In his opinion, the adoption of the final document primarily depends on the coordination of the positions of the “nuclear five” and the absence of contradictions between them, regardless of the positions of the anti-nuclear countries. The extension of the START Treaty and a favorable tone towards the NPT are also important. A. Margoev gave a pessimistic forecast based on the results of a thorough analysis, according to which only 2 scenarios out of 16 make it possible to adopt the final document. At the same time, if the Review Conference is postponed to a later date, the number of variables that have an impact on the likely outcome of the conference will significantly increase in connection with the elections in the United States and other events in the international arena.
After the reports, a discussion took place. Below are some comments from participants:
- Mikhail Lysenko , Associate Professor of the Department of International Law, MGIMO, Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Russia : the “five” remains a unique platform that could become a mechanism for constant dialogue and exchange of information.
- Andrey Malov , Associate Professor of the Department of International and National Security of the Diplomatic Academy of the Russian Ministry of Foreign Affairs: the topic of the NPT is deliberately emotionally colored and thus detached from the real strategic context.Russia has repeatedly said that the goal of a nuclear-free world is good, the question is how to move towards it.
During the discussion, the participants drew attention to the following important points:
– Russia strictly fulfills its obligations under the NPT and is interested in strengthening international stability.
– International cooperation in the development of nuclear energy and the use of nuclear energy for peaceful purposes can help strengthen the NPT regime.
– The course and outcome of the Review Conference will depend on the readiness of states to engage in dialogue and resolve the problems facing the NPT today.
– The presence of contradictions between the states of the “nuclear five” negatively affects the ability to agree on a common position, which, in turn, may negatively affect the outcome of the Review Conference.
– The factor of nuclear disarmament is gaining increasing influence on the present and future of the NPT regime.
– The creation of a WMD-free zone in the Middle East remains the most important task in accordance with the principles of the NPT, within the framework of the solution of which, despite the opposition of the United States and Israel, progress is being observed.

Without the former Dynamo player, Alexander Borodyuk would not have won against Kuban: both scoring actions began with graceful scoops of Temnikov, who twice got into the symbolic team of the round according to the league version.According to the hockey system, he would now have 4 points for performance.
A Shumskikh among the central defenders, according to statistics, is constantly in the top 3. With the crushing “Alania”, he held the defense on his shoulders, like three elephants a globe in ancient mythology. Perhaps the former sports director of “NN” Alexander Lipko is right, saying that it was Alexey, not Gotsuk, who was the main cardiac artery there?

Sultonov, who did not have a place in the scheme of Alexander Kerzhakov, who does not use the classic midfielders, joined Torpedo later than others.He needs more time to adapt, but due to his individual qualities he became the main star of the match against Spartak-2. Giving twice to Kalmykov, he unrolled the sweets, which could only be put in his mouth. And he has already distinguished himself – with the same red and white and with “Alania”.
David Karaev “SKA-Khabarovsk”
Striker. 3 matches (2 goals).
From : Ural
Recognition came to Karaev in the 2019/20 season, when he scored a lot for KAMAZ, including Spartak in the Russian Cup, after which he was summoned to watch by CSKA.The army team did not take the forward, but Ural took the lead. It didn’t go well in Yekaterinburg: just one goal, a bench and a loan at Caspian. Returning from Kazakhstan, the resident of Vladikavkaz terminated the contract with Ural and moved to Khabarovsk, where, by the way, he began his professional career. SKA hid the fact that the 26-year-old striker was at the training camp, so for Akron the new face of the team, Sergei Juran, came as a surprise. And Karaev immediately issued a double, having finished, as they say, moments.

Under Bazelyuk, who was lured away by Akron, the army team was predictable in attack: long passes, rebounds, bets on set pieces.The presence of the techie Karaev allows them to penetrate into the penalty area with the bottom more often. David is explosive, mobile. In the first rounds, he was one of the best in the league in strokes and won martial arts. With the “Rotor”, however, went into the shadows a little. It will be interesting to see how they will share functions with Barkov, when the SKA captain recovers from his injury, and whether Juran prefers two light players in front of Bulia’s “pillar”.
Alexey Pomerko “Torpedo”
Defensive midfielder. 3 matches
From : Sochi
In principle, you can put a dash in the line “from where” of the pupil “Torpedo”.Pomerko missed a year and a half due to a severe injury, underwent several surgeries, and the automakers doubted whether to sign the former player of Krasnodar and Krylia Sovetov, who had been working with the team almost from the beginning of the offseason. Now, go and don’t regret it. If Ryazantsev had not broken in the test match on the eve of the start, the 31-year-old defensive midfielder probably would not have come out against Kuban from the first minutes. There was no happiness … Pomerko – general of the center of the field, quickly found a common language with Netfullin and Yenin. It is amazing: in the match with Alania, he became the third in both teams in total mileage, having accumulated more than 10 km.He took it, gave it away, dug in – it’s not about Pomerko.
Oleg Baklov KAMAZ
Goalkeeper. 2 matches (1 conceded ball).
From : Ural
Chelny residents have two goalkeepers on loan from Ural. Alexey Mamin has already played for them in the second division, while Baklov was invited to play the role of the first number: at the age of 26 he needs playing practice. So far, the cooperation has been successful. The 4 points scored by KAMAZ in two home matches are largely due to Baklov.
https: // twitter.com / fckamaz / status / 1414983433525374982? s = 20
He had a lot of work with Alania. Born in Tajikistan and raised in Syzran, the goalkeeper saved 8 shots, failing only in stoppage time with a rebound. Nobody would have done it there. In addition, he has one hundred percent performance when playing at the exits. “Tekstilshchik”, of course, did not drive KAMAZ like “Alania”, but at the end of the day Oleg made a super rescue after Rudakov’s raid and defended a minimal victory. To play with “Olimp-Dolgoprudny” Baklov was prevented by the damage he received during the pre-game warm-up.Mamin did not disappoint. KAMAZ is in fifth place without defeat, and it has an interesting competition in the goalkeeper’s line.
Lawrence Nicholas “Olymp-Dolgoprudny”
Defensive midfielder. 2 matches
From : “Tambov”
In Volgograd, a 20-year-old Nigerian in the end was desperately playing for time, brought the stands to white heat and ran into the second yellow curtain. Nevertheless, with both Neftekhimik and Rotor, Nicholas burned everything out. According to the results of the first two rounds, the former midfielder of the Tambov youth team (in the RPL – 2 matches) became the absolute leader in interceptions in the opponent’s half of the field, and in the 2nd he won more and more martial arts, made the most rebounds and turned out to be the best in terms of the number of strokes …Flexible, coordinated. With KAMAZ, Olimp-Dolgoprudny did not have enough of it. The support zone, where the striker Korotaev was transferred, was walking. “Due to the absence of Lawrence, we were unable to connect the game between defense and attack for all 90 minutes,” Roman Pilipchuk admitted.
Ruslan Magal “Fakel”
Right back. 3 matches (1 goal)
From : “Torpedo”
Magal, a native of Voronezh, played from Novosibirsk to Kaliningrad, but made his professional debut at Fakel only at 29.Rumors of his return in the last two or three years have been circulating so intrusively that they should have become a reality at some point. The very next day after Torpedo announced its parting with Magal, he had three offers on hand, from which he chose Torch.

For Oleg Vasilenko’s three-center-back system, Ruslan is the perfect edge. He has enough health and mobility to iron the entire edge.Energizer. In the 3rd round, Magal had the highest index in general, although he brought an assist to his balance not with Tom, but with Baltika, luxuriously transferring the ball to Akbashev between two defenders.
Konstantin Bazelyuk “Akron”
Striker. 3 matches (2 goals + assist)
From : “SKA-Khabarovsk”
Baseluk, unlike Magal, was offered a contract extension in the former club, but this is also an indicative story. “SKA-Khabarovsk” did not lose from the departure of its top scorer, and “Akron” won with his arrival.It’s just that everyone has their own stylistic features. Now they will again say that the CSKA trainee scores a lot from the penalty spot. Yes, with “Metallurg” he did it from the “point”, but before that he made a goal discount for Babaev, and with “Volgar” his free-kick was his three-point shot. The fact is that none of the three goals of the Togliatti team could do without Bazelyuk.

Ayub Batsuev “Veles”
Central midfielder. 3 matches (1 gear)
From : “Noa Jurmala”
“Veles” in the new assembly surprised with a bold and offensive football.”Winged Bulls” even in Voronezh played from a position of strength. They again have a squad of newcomers from the PFL. Although for those who followed this tournament even out of the corner of their eye, the same Temur Dzhikia is not a phantom: he was the prima of the Ulyanovsk Volga. You need to search better! At the control room there is a miniature Batsuev (height – 169 cm). By the number of matches played in the RPL (7), he closes the top three in the team. The 24-year-old midfielder even scored one goal for Akhmat. I spent the last year in Taraz and Noa Jurmala. It is curious that Batsuev jumped from Veles to Ural, but it did not work out there – and he returned before the start.The guy is creative, he is playing the game. His cleverest pass made it possible to open the Kuban.

90,000 The most expensive Russian painting – Money – Kommersant
The rating of the most expensive paintings created by Russian painters can vary greatly depending on who is considered a Russian artist.
If we take into account all those who happened to be born on the territory of the Russian Empire, then the first line of the rating would be occupied by the American impressionist Mark Rothko, who, in addition to Russia, can be considered “theirs” by Belarus, Latvia and Israel.At the place of birth, Rothko’s fellow countryman was also the French artist Chaim Soutine, whose works were sold at auction for more than $ 12 million (the bottom bar of our rating).
We decided to include in the rating the paintings of those artists whose significant part of their careers was spent on the territory of Russia (USSR). As can be seen from the rating, there are four of them as of the end of 2013: Wassily Kandinsky, Kazimir Malevich, Marc Chagall and Nicholas Roerich. The leader in the number of paintings in the rating is Kandinsky – four out of ten.Last year, Natalia Goncharova and Nikolai Feshin were also in the top 10. The main newcomer is Nicholas Roerich, whose painting “Madonna Laboris (Works of Our Lady”) was sold in June for a record amount for the author – $ 12.06 million.
The fact that four paintings in the top ten changed owners in 2013 indicates a renewed interest in Russian painting, although it has not reached pre-crisis proportions. The date of the sale of the most expensive painting in the rating – “Suprematist Composition” by Kazimir Malevich – the end of 2008 is very symbolic in this regard.Another proof of this idea is the resale of Sketch for Improvisation N3 by Wassily Kandinsky for $ 21.16 million by the same owner who bought it in November 2008 for $ 16.88 million. sector took place mainly through Sotheby`s, while most of the fresh records – the merit of Christie`s. Phillips, who once opened Malevich to the West, retained its position in the rating thanks to the same 2000 trades. Bonham’s is still a beginner, just like Roerich.
It can be assumed that if there are no global shocks in the world economy, the new 2014 will be no less successful for Russian painting than the outgoing year.
MAOU Lyceum №3 mountains. Cheboksary
Welcome to page of the museum of the 139th Roslavl Red Banner Order of Suvorov Infantry Division!
MUSEUM of the 139th Rifle Division (3rd formations).
Our museum was founded in 1987 by the efforts of the director of school No. 5 V. Bykov.S. and Ivanova Elena Anatolyevna – deputy. director for educational work of the school. Pupils of this school corresponded with the museum veterans for a long time before starting to compile the exposition. The division’s veterans met three times. And we are proud that, having accepted the baton from the 5th school, Lyceum No. 3 has adequately held a meeting of the division’s veterans. True, only five of them survived …
A museum of the 139th rifle division also exists in one of the schools in Moscow. The second formation of the division included a large number of militias from the city.Moscow.
The great merit in the organization of the museum belongs to Petr Panteleimonovich Tallerov, the public director of the museum of the 139th rifle division of the Lyceum No. 3 of the city of Cheboksary.
Working on a voluntary basis at school # 5 in the city of Cheboksary, he began to collect materials for the creation of a museum of military glory of the 139th rifle division, which was formed in the city of Cheboksary from December 1941 to April 1942.
During the work, 984 units were collected (photos, originals of the divisional newspapers “Stalin’s Call”, Komsomol tickets pierced by shrapnel, letters of thanks from the Supreme Commander-in-Chief, copies of award sheets, order books for awards, “Battle sheets”, personal belongings of veterans).
At the moment, the museum of the 139th Infantry Division contains more than 10,000 items of storage, most of which are exclusive.
From the Volga to the Elbe
The whole country was closely following the counter-offensive of our troops near Moscow. In such a difficult time, that is, on December 8, 1941, a directive from the Moscow Military District was adopted on the formation of a rifle division on the territory of Chuvashia.
On January 7, 1941, a directive from the People’s Commissariat of Defense was received, which announced the assignment of permanent numbers to the division and regiments. The compound became known as the 139th Infantry Division. It consisted of the 364th (commander-major N.V. Mitropolsky), 609th (commander-major K.I.Davydenko), 718th (K.I. Modenov) rifle regiments, 354th (commander – Major I.M.Turyansky) artillery regiment, 237th separate anti-tank battalion, 197th separate sapper battalion, 271st separate communications battalion, 162nd separate reconnaissance company, 293rd separate company of chemical protection, 229th a medical and sanitary battalion and other special units.Major N.V. was appointed acting division commander. Mitropol’skiy, technician-quartermaster of the second rank V.A. Churmeev was appointed chief of the division’s combat headquarters.
The building of the art gallery of the city of Cheboksary served as the premises for the division headquarters, now under the bay, the units were located in the settlements: 364-p. regiment – Ishlei village, 609-p. regiment in the village of Kugesi, 716th in the village of Chemursha, 354th artillery regiment in the village of Ikkovo, Cheboksary region.
The recruiting of units and divisions of the division was mainly carried out at the expense of the conscripts of Alikovsky, Ibresinsky, former Ishleysky, former Kalininsky, Marnisko-Posadsky, Morgaushsky, former Pervomaisky, Poretsky, Shemurshinsky, former Shikhasansky, Shumerlinsky, Tsivilsky, Chekatyrevsky districts and the city of Cheboksary.Replenishment also came from the Mari Autonomous Soviet Socialist Republic, Ivanovo, Kalinin and Moscow regions.
The division covered its combat path from the banks of the Volga to the Elbe. The total distance of the path is about three thousand kilometers.
Participating in the storming of many heavily fortified defensive positions and liberating large administrative and economic centers, the soldiers displayed massive heroism.
For these feats of arms, the 139th Infantry Division earned the honorary name “Roslavl”, and was awarded the Order of the Red Banner and the Order of Suvorov, 2nd degree.
364th Rifle Regiment began to be called Lomzhensky Red Banner, Order of Kutuzov 3 degrees, 609th-Ostrolensky Red Banner, 718th Red Banner Order of Kutuzov 3 degrees.
The formation was noted thirty times in the orders of the Supreme Commander.
In the course of offensive battles, units and subdivisions of the division liberated over 3800 settlements in Kalinin, Kaluga, Smolensk, Mogilev, Minsk and Grodno, as well as fraternal Poland.With its active hostilities in the Minsk, Bialystok and Kinigsberg directions, the division largely contributed to the liberation of the cities of Minsk, Bialystok and capture the city – the Konigsberg fortress.
The warriors of the division crossed the rivers Desna, Oster, Sozh, Pronya, Resta, Dnieper, Drut ‘, Berezina, Svisloch, Neman (three times), Narev, Vistula and Oder.
Parts of the division defeated a number of formations and units of the enemy, while about 4500 enemy soldiers and officers, two generals were taken prisoner, a lot of trophies were captured, a significant number of personnel and military equipment were put out of action.
During the war, the division’s soldiers were awarded over 10557 orders and medals.
Twenty-eight brave soldiers and commanders were awarded the title of Hero of the Soviet Union. Not every unit can boast with so many heroes; there are no more than a dozen such units in the Soviet Army.
14 brave soldiers and commanders were awarded the high rank of full holders of the Order of Glory.
Many of our fellow countrymen, natives of Chuvashia, were among those who received government awards.The soldiers of the unit learned their combat skills from the experience of the best fighters and commanders. Machine gunner I. Kulikov, sapper E.I. Shevkunov, scouts M.S. Kirillov, M.I. Gladyshev, A.D. Artemov, artillerymen P.P. Parfenov, physicians Lebedeva, V.S. Dovzhenko, private V.K. Vanaikin and many others. Among them were many of our fellow countrymen, like V.I. Borovkov, F.A. Gaikina, Smirnova (Markelova V.N.), Kh. N. Budanov, N.I. Barinov, M.I.Shushpanov and others.
In the history of the battles of the division, the battles at the Nameless Height, which were committed by the soldiers of the 609th Infantry Regiment, where there were 18 Siberian fighters, remain for centuries.
They died on the fields and roads of the war, did everything in their power to defend the Fatherland. These were both young guys and fathers of families. We are eternally indebted to them, paying tribute to those who fell on the battlefield, unfortunately, we were able to tell in the books “The 139th Roslavl Red Banner”, by A.N. Nikolaev, “Soldiers, do you remember your roads”, by PP Tallerov, about a few brave fighters. We should also remember those of our comrades who showed courage and bravery who died in the war, died after the war.

The dugouts were usually equipped with homemade tables. There were always craftsmen who could put together in a few minutes from scrap materials. Often boxes from under the shells served as tables and benches. All this made the dugouts cozy.
A field telephone was used for wire communication. Signalers usually carried it on a belt and pulled a reel of wire with them. The call was made by scrolling the handle. The conversation was conducted into the telephone receiver by pressing a special button or turning the lever.
Patriotic leaflets and a portrait of JV Stalin, which often hung on the walls in dugouts, raised the spirit of the soldiers, strengthened their faith in victory over fascism. Patriotism and unity of the Soviet people helped to win this terrible great war.Shoulder to shoulder, in the rain and slush, frost and cold, the soldiers marched forward for the day when the sun would shine cloudlessly again and people would smile. Sitting by the window stove, by the light of the smokehouse, to the sounds of an accordion, everyone recalled a distant peaceful life, to sing of which then lay through the war. And for every step forward, for every inch of their native land that won back, they gave their most precious lives.
90,000 Biden’s advisor called the START-3 extension just the beginning :: Politics :: RBC
US National Security Adviser Jake Sullivan believes that the extension of the Treaty with Russia on Measures to Further Reduce and Limit Strategic Offensive Arms (START-3) is just the beginning of serious negotiations with Moscow.He said this at an event at the US Institute for Peace.
“Serious and substantive negotiations are needed on the entire spectrum of nuclear challenges and threats outside START III,” Sullivan said.
On January 26, Moscow and Washington agreed to extend the treaty on strategic offensive weapons. After that, Russian President Vladimir Putin submitted to the State Duma a draft law on the ratification of the agreement on the extension of START-3.
As Russian Deputy Foreign Minister Sergei Ryabkov said on January 27, Russia and the United States were able to agree for another five years “on our terms.””For five years without preconditions, without any additions and any” appendages “, – said Ryabkov.
Medvedev allowed the development of new agreements based on START-3
