Miami Dolphins rookies Ja'Wuan James and Jarvis Landry were named to the 2014 Pro Football Writers of America All-Rookie Team. James made the team of course as a tackle and Landry made it as a kickoff returner. James and Landry were selected in the first and second round, respectively and both immediately contributed to the Dolphins right away.
Landry returned 34 kickoffs for a total of 954 yards with an average of 28.1 yards per return. While he didn't have any touchdowns, he came close several times before being brought down by the last defender in the way. His longest return of the season was 74 yards.
James was rated as one of the top right tackles in the league before moving over to the left side when Branden Albert got injured a little more than halfway through the season. He gave up six total sacks, 12 quarterback hits and 40 quarterback hurries. While his numbers on the left side were underwhelming, he did quite well on the right side, where he will return for the 2015 season.
Congratulations to both players who look to be a part of the team for at least the next decade and cornerstones for the Dolphins to build upon and around.
