GRIDIRON FOOTBALL ALUMNI NFL PLAYER OF THE WEEK: WHO HAD THE BEST PERFORMANCE IN WEEK TWO OF THE PRESEASON?
Week two of the preseason allows for more opportunities for starters, and a bigger separation between the locks to make the team, and those who are seeing their NFL dreams come to a halt.
The rookie class of 2012 continued to prove its worth, as more and more rookies made plays in the second week of the preseason. Aside from the obvious choices of talking quarterbacks again, Jaguars rookie wide receiver Justin Blackmon caught four passes for 48 yards and a touchdown in week two, helping to solidify his spot as the top wide receiver target in the Jaguars system.
Getting back on the quarterback bandwagon, Seahawks rookie signal-caller Russell Wilson may be getting close to wrapping up the starting job in Seattle, as the first-year player has thrown for 279 yards and three touchdowns in his first two preseason games. Wilson could beat out free agent signee Matt Flynn for that starting job.
Who would you pick to be best performer from week two of the preseason? Is it a quarterback? Or are other players stepping up?
