Bobby Wagner, Russell Wilson come up short in Rookie of the Year

Seattle’s draft class was panned in April. In January, though, Seattle had two of the top six rookies according to Associated Press ballots.

Linebacker Bobby Wagner was runner-up in Defensive Rookie of the Year to Luke Kuechly of Carolina, the No. 9 overall pick. Kuechly received 28 first-place votes, Wagner 11. Green Bay cornerback Casey Hayward finished third with six first-place votes.

Quarterback Russell Wilson was third in votes for Offensive Rookie of the Year. Robert Griffin III of Washington won the award, receiving 29 of 50 votes. Andrew Luck of Indianapolis received 11 votes, Wilson received 10.

The ballotting by 50 designated voters concluded before the start of the postsesason.  Voters selected one winner. There were no second and third-place votes in ballotting.
