On the cusp of the 2013 NFL season, our analysts provide their predictions, including the winners of individual awards, playoff teams for each conference and picks for Championship Sunday/Super Bowl XLVIII.
MOST VALUABLE PLAYER
Harrison: Picking the All-Pros
Elliot Harrison looks into his crystal ball to fill out an All-Pro roster for the season to come -- and some names might surprise. More ...
Elliot Harrison: Brady. Facing such low expectations, Brady will carry a no-name receiver group to another stellar offensive season, logging a 10-6 record and nabbing the AFC East crown in the process.
Adam Schein: Aaron Rodgers, QB, Green Bay Packers. Offensive-line worries? New running backs? Former receivers [questioning his leadership](http://www.nfl.com/news/story/0ap1000000221858/article/aaron-rodgers-wont-take-bait-from-greg-jennings)? Whatever. He's the best QB in the business, making everyone around him better.
OFFENSIVE PLAYER OF THE YEAR
Jeff Darlington: Johnson. A beastly season in 2012 put Johnson into a class reserved for the greatest wide receivers of all time. And this year, he's about to do something nobody has ever done before: eclipse 2,000 receiving yards in a single season.
Michael Silver: Brees. Tell me, again, why should the MVP and Offensive POY be two different people?
DEFENSIVE PLAYER OF THE YEAR
Daniel Jeremiah: Watt. In an attempt to shake things up, I tried to come up with another player, but I just couldn't do it. He's the best defender in the NFL right now.
OFFENSIVE ROOKIE OF THE YEAR
Gil Brandt: Austin. This guy is like a waterbug with wings; I watched him in camp, and no one could cover him, not even talented cornerback Janoris Jenkins. He had equal success on short and long routes. Austin is tough, has cat-like quickness and doesn't drop the ball. He can also be a factor in the return game.
Daniel Jeremiah: Eifert. There are several running backs who could steal this award, but I'm going with the talented tight end. Eifert is an excellent red-zone option, and I won't be surprised if he puts up 10 touchdowns this fall.
DEFENSIVE ROOKIE OF THE YEAR
Gil Brandt: Ansah. For someone who has played such little football, Ansah has an unbelievable feel for the game; he can look like a 10-year veteran out there. Because he plays on that tough Lions line, opponents will have a hard time scheming against him. Ansah can have an Aldon Smith-esque rookie campaign.
Brandt: Breakout alert!
After visiting 12 training camps in 21 days, Gil Brandt provides a list of 11 preseason standouts to keep an eye on. More ...
COACH OF THE YEAR
Michael Silver: Reid. Big Red finesses a playoff season out of last year's NFL doormats, reviving his career and creating lofty expectations for 2014.
