WATCH: Highlights of Leonard Floyd’s incredible rookie season

Defensive rookie of the year?

NFL: San Francisco 49ers at Chicago Bears Caylor Arnold-USA TODAY Sports

Former Georgia Bulldogs linebacker Leonard Floyd is having an incredible rookie season with the Chicago Bears.

He’s playing so well, in fact, that the team is actively campaigning for him to become the NFL’s defensive rookie of the year.

Case in point:

Through week 14, Floyd was first among rookies with seven sacks, and also had five tackles for loss and eight quarterback hits.

He’s showing why he deserved to be the SEC’s top pick in the 2016 NFL Draft.
