Sam Bradford is the clear-cut choice as the NFL's Offensive Rookie of the Year. That's the opinion of ProFootballWeekly.com readers who participated in a recently concluded poll.

Bradford received 3,571 votes out of 8,368 - 42.7 percent - far outdistancing his closest competitors in the voting. The Rams' quarterback led a big upturn in the team's fortunes this season as it went from 1-15 in 2009 to 7-9 this season, nearly winning the NFC West.

The runner-up spot in the voting was extremely close, with Steelers C Maurkice Pouncey narrowly edging Patriots TE Rob Gronkowski 1,182 to 1,181. Buccaneers RB LeGarrette Blount was fourth with 800 votes, followed by Buccaneers WR Mike Williams (742), Raiders WR-KR Jacoby Ford (476), Lions RB Jahvid Best (199), Patriots TE Aaron Hernandez (116) and Rams OT Rodger Saffold (101).
