So what are the main principles with picking a Defensive Rookie of the Year?

1. Unlike many other awards, favorites tend to win.

2. DROY tends to be an award for pass rushers.

3. Winning doesn't matter much — but an improving defense does.

4. The most predictive factor is draft position.

These notes are courtesy of my colleague Brandon Anderson.

Through that rationale he had a preseason pick at +500. That number is now hanging at +550. Read about it here.
