Prisco's Top 100 NFL Players of 2022: Aaron Donald new No. 1 as Rams have three of top 10; Aaron Rodgers No. 2

Stars win in the NFL. Period. 

The Los Angeles Rams put that on screen last season in winning the Super Bowl. They are definitely a top-heavy group, with huge cash paid to their star gamers. Of course, they need to do an excellent task of supplementing the lineup to make it work, which basic supervisor Les Snead has actually done, however it’s the stars who drive the group.

They likewise lead my 2022 list of the NFL’s leading 100 gamers. Not just do the Rams have the No. 1 gamer on the list, however they have 3 in the leading 10, and none of those is their expensive quarterback, although Matt Stafford is a leading 50 gamer.

Rams protective take on Aaron Donald is the No. 1 gamer on my list this year. That’s due to the fact that he’s the very best protective gamer in the league, in addition to remaining in the argument to be thought about the very best of perpetuity. He is plainly the leading gamer at his position, whereas an argument might be made at all the others, even quarterback.

The other Rams gamers in my leading 10 are receiver Cooper Kupp at No. 5 and cornerback Jalen Ramsey at No. 10. Kupp revealed the football world in 2015 that he is presently the NFL’s finest receiver. Ramsey stays a shutdown corner, who developed into a lot more last season in a range of functions in the new-look Raheem Morris defense.

The reality that Donald tops the list moves a quarterback off the leading area. That does not suggest the top-10 isn’t quarterback heavy —as typical. In reality, the whole list is quarterback heavy due to the fact that there are a great deal of star passers in the league today.

If you’re questioning which group has the most gamers, it’s the Los Angeles Chargers with 9 in the leading 100 — 3 more than the 3 groups connected for the next most with 6 (Cowboys, Buccaneers and 49ers). The Rams wound up with 5, as did the Bills, Bengals, Chiefs and Packers. The Patriots are amongst 6 groups with no in the leading 100, signing up with the Giants, Jets, Texans, Jaguars and Lions.

So dive in and consume it up. Nobody will enjoy. That much I understand. But for all those out there all set to eliminate me for the list, I provide you this: Try it. It’s difficult to do, specifically in a league where there are a lot of excellent gamers.
