4. Bijan Robinson wins both Offensive Rookie and Offensive Player of the Year

This is bold, like really bold. The Associated Press typically does not like to give out non-rookie awards to rookies, so Bijan Robinson would really need to put on a showing to take home both of these awards.

Earl Campbell was able to win both awards in 1978 and Lawrence Taylor took home both awards on defense three years later.

For Bijan to be voted the winner of both awards, he would need to score ten-plus touchdowns and have over 2,000 yards from scrimmage as a rookie, along with the Falcons winning ten or more games. It certainly could be possible for the generational player. Arthur Smith did help Derrick Henry rush for over 2k yards during the 2020 season.
