When weighing his initial value to his team under a former safety in Bowles, Adams is in a great position to hold off any defensive tackles, edge rushers, linebackers or cornerbacks with a better overall rookie season. Given the fact only three second-rounders — all inside linebackers — have won DROY since 2000, Adams’ four toughest competitors will come from the 16 other defenders taken in the first round of ’17:
Garrett, the most talented player in the ’17 class, offensively or defensively, will get plenty of chances to wreak havoc off the edge, helped by the presence of teammate and outside playmaker in Jamie Collins. It just will be more difficult to deliver the necessary numbers and get enough attention for his rookie work.

In the pass-happy NFC South, Lattimore will get plenty of chances to get the needed picks, a la Peters two years ago.
That hands-on background is quite a difference from Blandino’s. He joined the NFL as an intern in the officiating department after graduating from college and gradually worked his way through the ranks at the league office. That experience gave him years to get to know NFL coaches and front office members, and he became a high-profile figure in explaining officiating issues to the media and fans, accumulating more than 35,000 Twitter followers.

It’s not clear whether the league will expect Riveron to be as public-facing as Blandino was, or whether he’ll focus more on the internal mechanics of the job.
