St. Louis Rams’ Carroll Rosenbloom Award Winners; Past and Present

USA TODAY Sports

The St. Louis Rams have done a tremendous job of finding players who can immediately contribute in the past two NFL Drafts. Their 2013 haul is loaded with top-tier talent. Only one can win the Carroll Rosenbloom Award...

The Carroll Rosenbloom Award is an annual accolade given to the Rams’ Rookie of the Year, as voted upon by the team’s Coaches and Players. Rosenbloom - for those who may not know - was the owner of the Los Angeles Rams from 1972-1979. During that span, his teams won seven consecutive NFC West Championships [1973-79].

Since passing away in 1979, the team has honored his name by bestowing each Rams’ ROTY with an award in his namesake. You can see the full list of award winners here. For a closer look at the last decades Rosenbloom Award Winners…

The bad news for Stedman Bailey, Barrett Jones, Brandon McGee, and Zac Stacy is that none of the team’s 3rd-7th round selections have won the award of the course of the past decade. As a matter of fact, you’d have to go back to the team’s 2000 Draft to find a player who won the award outside of the top two rounds. In that year, Iowa Safety Matt Bowen - who was selected in the 6th round [198 overall] - earned the honors.

It may just be time for another Rams’ rookie drafted outside of the 2nd round to show enough on the field that his coaches and peers see fit to vote in his favor. That’ll be no easy feat, though. Tavon Austin, Alec Ogletree, and T.J. McDonald may have already inked their names in as starters.

And though it may be uncertain now, one of the Rams’ rookies is going to stand out amongst the rest in 2013. They will catch the eye of those around them, and earn the honors of the 2013 Carroll Rosenbloom "Rookie of the Year" Award.

Who’s it going to be Rams Nation?
