I was thinking Kendall Reyes myself. What a joke he is in Kiper's list. Kiper has him in there because of one game. Yes, he had 3.5 sacks vs. the Jets (in a game where the Chargers recorded 11 sacks), but 2 sacks for the rest of the season (and those two sacks came against Denver).
Jones had 6.0 sacks, 3 forced Fumbles, 4 tackles for a loss, 5 pass defenses, and 45 tackles. He did drop off after he missed two games from injuries, but he was a legitimate DROY candidate before that. Reyes was a rookie bust until he played the Jets.
Kiper is a joke. I have no problem with Coples being on the list because he did come around in the second half of the season, but Jones still arguably had the best year of any DE in this year's rookie class. Reyes sucked for most of the year.
