The writers that cover NFL teams every day have decided that Deone Bucannon was one of the league's best rookies in 2014.

The Pro Football Writers of America included the first-year safety out of Washington State in their All-Rookie team, which was released on Tuesday. Bucannon started nine games, made 81 tackles and forced a fumble for the Arizona Cardinals, the team that made him their first-round draft choice last spring.

His best game came in a week 8 win over Philadelphia in which he made a season-high eight tackles, deflected a pass and recovered a fumble.
