Rams' Todd Gurley Named PFWA Rookie of the Year

Los Angeles Rams running back Todd Gurley added a few more honors on Tuesday.

Todd Gurley added to his impressive collection of accolades on Tuesday with two more honors.

The Los Angeles Rams running back was named the 2015 Rookie of the Year and the 2015 Offensive Rookie of the Year by the Pro Football Writers of America. 

The Rams’ first-round pick last spring out of the University of Georgia, Gurley led all NFL rookies in rushing yards (1,106) and rushing touchdowns (10) despite playing in just 13 games because of injuries. He ranked third in the NFL in rushing among all players. 

Gurley, who racked up 1,294 total yards, has previously been named the Rookie of the Year by The Sporting News and selected second-team All-Pro by the Associated Press.

He becomes the fourth Rams player to be selected Offensive Rookie of the Year and the first since quarterback Sam Bradford in 2010. 

In addition to Gurley’s honors, he was joined on the PFWA All-Rookie team by Rams right tackle Rob Havenstein, a second-round pick out of the University of Wisconsin
