Casey Hayward takes 3rd in Defensive Rookie of Year voting

Posted by Mike Spofford on February 2, 2013 – 7:39 pm

Packers CB Casey Hayward finished third in the Associated Press voting for Defensive Rookie of the Year.

Panthers LB Luke Kuechly won the award by getting 28 of the 50 votes. Seahawks LB Bobby Wagner was second with 11 votes, followed by Hayward with six. Rounding out the voting were Rams CB Janoris Jenkins (3) and Buccaneers LB Lavonte David (2).

Hayward led the Packers and all NFL rookies with six interceptions in 2012. Hayward was trying to become the first Packers player to win AP’s Defensive Rookie of the Year award since CB Willie Buchanon in 1972.

Packers QB Aaron Rodgers earned two votes for Offensive Player of the Year. That award went to Minnesota RB Adrian Peterson.

    Hayward had one heck of season and didn’t start in many games! Just think if would have?? With one year of experience just think what he can do. Capers should have Hayward in the mix year.
    Go Pack Go!

    Like PFF pointed out the AP voters would count Hayward’s number of snaps against him. He won their DROY award and was on their first team all pro team. If he would of been a full time starter he would of won the award by a landslide. He still should of won though.

    Showing at least some of the AP voters know apparently very little they voted for Janoris Jenkins. Outside of a couple TD’s he was constantly beat downfield and just really struggled all the way around.

    My top 4 would of been easily in this order Hayward, Wagner, David, Kuechley. Kuechley’s Tackle total seems impressive unless you watched him. They were done in a similar fashion as Hawk. Wagner was the MUCH more impressive LB.

    Third?? I could accept second, but third is a joke.

    Come back with a chip, Casey, and win DPOY this coming season! I believe in you!

    KB with a great post. Like he said, Pro Football Focus had him as their DROY as he didn’t give up a single TD I believe, and the lowest completion percentage allowed of any CB.

    Its an absooolute joke Capers hasnt been fired ! To: TT this will not be an I told you so moment ! Every where Capers has gone his defenses have bombed out after the first few years and hes been FIRED ! Everywhere ! WoW Colin Kapernick is chewing apart the vaunted Raven defense !!! ohh wait a minute; NO HES NOT ! Thats what A good D – cordinator will do for you ! Everybody talks about the huge and record setting numbers our defense have given up in the playoffs, and how its why A – rod dosent have another SB !What about games like week 17 against Christen Ponder (WITH A FIRST ROUND BY AND SF AT GB ON THE LINE ) !- A huge game that made a QB with Ponders skill set look like Marino ! Ted you have not done your homework on this guY !

    The future looks bright in the defensive secondary if these young players can build on the year they just had, and stay healthy. Sam Shields, Casey H., Jennings, Burnett, McMillian, a healthy House, Richardson, along with Tramon and possibly one more year from Charles. They all just need to wrap and actually tackle more effectively while improving some on their coverage skills. The front 7 needs to improve, but should with a healthy Worthy, Perry, CJ Wilson, getting Desmond back and a full year of Clay.
    Are there stats on missed snaps due to injury by team? It sure feels like we’d lead the league….

    I would have to agree with airpacker. the D is terrible and has been. they need a new D cordinator. and 2 or 3 more offensive lineman that can block.
