With the regular season in the books, our panel of 15 writers and editors cast their ballots for the 2017 NFL awards—some traditional, some MMQB originals. Unlike AP voting, out voters cast ranked ballots, rather than just one name, for every award. Point totals are based on a 10-9-8-7-6-5-4-3-2-1 scale for MVP, and either 5-4-3-2-1 or 3-2-1 for the rest of the honors.
MOST VALUABLE PLAYER
The actual vote might be closer, but Tom Brady won our vote by a comfortable margin. His closest competitor, Todd Gurley, did not garner a single first-place vote. Only Brady and Carson Wentz appeared on all 15 ballots.
OFFENSIVE PLAYER OF THE YEAR
For our vote, we limited OPOY to non-quarterbacks only.
DEFENSIVE PLAYER OF THE YEAR
Aaron Donald had the most first-place votes, but it was Calais Campbell taking the award.
OFFENSIVE ROOKIE OF THE YEAR
Alvin Kamara appeared first or second on every ballot, enough to hold off rushing champion Kareem Hunt.
DEFENSIVE ROOKIE OF THE YEAR
Marshon Lattimore won by a comfortable margin, though Bills CB Tre'Davious White was the only defensive rookie to appear on all 15 ballots.
COACH OF THE YEAR
Sean McVay won the voting by a wide margin, though five different coaches received first-place votes.
ASSISTANT COACH OF THE YEAR
For unleashing Case Keenum's potential, Vikings offensive coordinator (and current head-coaching candidate) Pat Shurmur takes the honors.
EXECUTIVE OF THE YEAR
It took Howie Roseman just two offseasons to build the Eagles into a powerhouse, needing only 15 games to clinch the NFC's top seed.
