Minnesota Vikings receiver Percy Harvin received 41 out of the 50 and took home the AP's Offensive Rookie of the Year Honors.
Harvin, who was the 22nd pick overall out of Florida, excelled in both the passing and return games. He caught 60 passes for 790 yards and six scores. He also had a return average of 27.5 yards on kickoffs and took two to the end zone.
"I think Percy's on his way to a league of his own," Brett Favre told the AP. "He's quick like Wes Welker. He's got a long ways to go to be in the same category with Wes, but at the rate he's going he's a dominant force in a lot of ways."
Harvin was also selected to the Pro Bowl this week. Offensive tackle Michael Oher, of the Ravens, received six votes, finishing in second.

What do you call a fifth-round rookie WR with real expectations? Tajae Sharpe, and there may not be another player like him in NFL history. Tennessee's poor history of developing wideouts has led to a rare opportunity that Sharpe can seize this season.
