The Associated Press' 50-member NFL honors and All-Pro selection committee includes the Star Tribune's Mark Craig. The selection committee members cast their votes two days after the regular season ends. Here is Craig's ballot:
AP NFL HONORS
Most Valuable Player: Aaron Rodgers, QB, Packers
A crowded field early became a slam-dunk pick by season's end.
Coach of the Year: Kevin Stefanski, Browns
Former Vikings offensive coordinator took Cleveland to the playoffs. 'Nuff said.
Assistant Coach of the Year: Todd Bowles, Buccaneers
Tom Brady wasn't the only key TB in the Bucs' Super Bowl run.
Comeback Player of the Year: Alex Smith, QB, Washington
Toughest player in a tough-guy league.
Defensive Player of the Year: T.J. Watt, OLB, Steelers
Three-time winner J.J. isn't the only Watt worthy of this award.
Offensive Player of the Year: Derrick Henry, RB, Titans
Only the eighth 2,000-yard rusher in league history.
Defensive Rookie: Chase Young, DE, Washington
Looked like a seasoned NFL edge rusher from the get-go.
Offensive Rookie: Justin Jefferson, Vikings
No offense to QB Justin Herbert — a well-deserving choice — but the NFL hasn't seen a rookie receiver this gifted and this special since Randy Moss.
