10. Aaron Rodgers
“R.E.L.A.X”. It’s no doubt that Aaron Rodgers made this list. Every NFL commentator becomes a middle school girl with a gushy crush when they get to examine his quarterbacking skills. To his credit, he brought the Pack-Attack from an ugly 3-6 start to NFC North division champs in the 2016 season.
9. Derek Carr
The black hole was one of the scariest places for away teams to play in the 2016 season. Carr put up a 96.7 QBR with 3,937 passing yards and 28 TD’s. Sadly, in week 16 Carr suffered a broken fibula against the Colts and crushed many fans Super Bowl hopes.
8. Odell Beckham Jr
With his speed, leaping ability, one-handed catches, and that hair, its no wonder ODB is one of the leagues most popular players. In the game of football, there is nothing more cinematic than a deep ball thrown perfectly to the end zone with a grab from one of the leagues best over an ailing defender. Odell makes that look easy.
7. Antonio Brown
Antonio Brown is arguably one of the greatest receivers to ever play the game. With 4 consecutive seasons of 1200+ yards receiving, he is making a case to be in the hall-of-fame. Pittsburg fans have been blessed with one of the greatest playmakers ever with number 84, Antonio Brown.
6. Von Miller
5 time pro-bowler, 2 time First-team All-pro, and Super Bowl MVP. Von Miller already has a resume of a hall-of-famer linebacker. Miller is the heartbeat to the Denver Broncos defense, and is the only player on this list that doesn’t play offense.
5. Rob Gronkowski
Gronk is a freak. From his bone crushing blocks, to his athletic touchdown grabs, he is the most dynamic tight-end in the league and it’s no wonder that his jersey is one of the most sold. In his 7-year career thus far he already has 68 touchdowns and 6,095 receiving yards. Look out for number 87.
4. Tom Brady
Tom Brady may go down as the best quarterback to ever play the game. In the 2016 season at the age of 39 he is playing like a 27 year old. He is making a case for another MVP award and the Patriots are looking prime and ready for another visit to the Super Bowl.
3. Carson Wentz
Carson Wentz is sure to be a feature franchise quarterback for years to come. The Philadelphia Eagles drafted Wentz with their 2nd pick in the 2016 draft and received a QB that looks poised for a hall of fame career.
2. Dak Prescott
Number 4 for the Dallas Cowboys is trying to make them America’s team again. Dak Prescott broke Tom Brady’s record of most consecutive pass attempts without an interception to start a career. Cowboy fans are hoping he can break some more of Brady’s records.
1. Ezekiel Elliot
Zeke is looking like a MVP already in his rookie season. Tallying for over 1,600 yards rushing and 15 touchdowns in his first season, the Cowboys have the perfect 1-2 punch with Dak Prescott and Ezekiel Elliot running the offense. His popularity is magnetic among young NFL fans and already he has made a big splash in the NFL.
