Casey Hayward named to PFW/PFWA All-Rookie team

Posted by Mike Spofford on January 10, 2013 – 2:39 pm

Casey HaywardPackers CB Casey Hayward has been named to the Pro Football Weekly/Professional Football Writers of America All-Rookie team for 2012.

Hayward led the Packers and all rookies across the league with six interceptions in his first season. He was a second-round draft choice out of Vanderbilt.

No Packers made the PFW/PFWA All-NFL team, which selects only one player at each position. In contrast, Green Bay’s divisional playoff opponent, the San Francisco 49ers, had four players on the All-NFL squad — G Mike Iupati, LBs Patrick Willis and Aldon Smith, and P Andy Lee.
