NFL’s 5 Brightest Stars (Non QB’s)

Both Wr’s are extremely talented play-makers who can simply take over games. These two guys are so similar its uncanny. Both are team guys, both play on bad teams, neither has a DIVA BONE IN THEIR BODIES, both are very humble and prefer to stay out of the spotlight. As a Lions fan I’m partial to Johnson but I can’t honestly rank one higher than the other.

Simply the best running back to come along since LaDanian Tomlinson in his prime. Seems like a nice kid and most definitely one of the hardest working professional athletes in all of sports.
3. J. J. Watt
Since his last season at the University of Wisconsin Watt has continued to get better in all aspects of his game. Last year he led the league with 20.5 QB sacks. 16 passes defended and an astounding 23 tackles for loss. To play the pass and run so very well is uniquely rare. Entering only his 3rd season what he may be able to accomplish is mind-boggling.

Peterson may not have the numbers of a Darrelle Revis or Richard Sherman but he is 5 times as valuable. This kid can literally do it all. Defense, Special Teams, and Offense. He has improved tremendously from year on to year two. This season new coach Bruce Arians is going to install a package on offense to get this play-maker on the field.  Last year he was matched up on the oppositions best WR and more than held his own. He’s a threat every time he lines up to return a punt too.

Willis the most complete and best linebacker since Ray Lewis is the heart and soul of the 49ers defense and probably the team overall. He tackles, defends passes, intercepts passes, forces fumbles. He was a one man wrecking crew until San Francisco started surrounding him with talent like NaVarro Bowman, Aldon Smith, Dashon Goldson, etc.

  1. Great post man not much to argue with your top 5. I do think Richard Sherman is a better cornerback than Patrick Peterson but both are great and Sherman does not have the return ability Peterson has. Thats interesting what you mentioned about the Cardinals including Peterson on offense. Do you know if he will play at WR or would he be running a spread option/wilcat package?

    • I agree with you. Sherman is better, but, when you look at Seattle”s D, you kindof have to throw to Sherman, because there’s playmakers everywhere. It would be folly for Arizona to waste Peterson’s time playing offense, its called get a real QB.
      Check out my blog and tell me what you think.

  2. Good post. Calvin and Larry are one of the best recievers to play, Watt continues to improve his game, and I don’t agree with AP being the best back since LT in his prime. I think Priest and Shaun were better backs, and maybe even Portis.
