Well...looking at the other candidates
QB - Trent Edwards
RB - Marshawn Lynch
OL - Joe Staley - Edit: Joe Thomas
WR - Dwayne Bowe
DL - Jarvis Green??
LB - Patrick Willis/David Harris
CB - Leon Hall/Aaron Ross
It will be between AP, Patrick Willis
Patrick Willis (88 total tackles, league leader), and David Harris (66 total tackles)
I would think that the biggest threat is David Harris. If he can he lead the league in tackles after only starting 9 games (if he keeps up this pace he will)...that's a feat!! But, I can't see him realistically continuing to put up 20 tackles a game.
Edit: I'm talking about most impressive Rookie performance (understanding there's separte ROTY for Offense and Defense)
