Tyrann Mathieu's future?

It's not a bad time to be Tyrann Mathieu. The Cardinals safety has seemingly turned his career around after a series of drug-related issues led to his early departure from LSU. Now, after re-committing himself, he's starting for the Cardinals and making the kind of hustle plays that earned him the nickname of "The Honey Badger." Mathieu's career is still in its incubation period, but it's certainly a big change from where it was a year ago.

Last year, Luke Kuechly was NFL Defensive Rookie of the Year. The season before? Von Miller. In all, nine of the past 10 winners have been linebackers, meaning the likes of Arthur Brown, Jarvis Jones and Manti Te'o must be favorites, right? Or will someone else -- maybe a certain safety in Arizona -- emerge? Rank the candidates!
