Trent Williams, left tackle

After skipping the 2019 campaign, Williams has proven he is still among the elite of players evolving from his position in the Goodell Tour. According to the specialist site, which analyzes performance and ranks all NFL players, the 32-year-old veteran is at the top of the blockers. Good left blockers are a rare commodity, imagine the excellent ones …

Aaron Jones

Aaron Jones, running back

The Green Bay Packers running back has amassed over 1,000 yards in the past two seasons. In 2020, he made it in 14 games, compared to 16 games in 2019. His performances have placed him in the top five running backs in the last two seasons. The Wisconsin club will try to keep him in their ranks, but will they be able to put as much money on the table as other teams interested in Jones?

Justin Simmons, Marauder

Simmons will be looking to become the highest-paid marauder in the NFL this spring. Currently, Arizona Cardinals player Budda Baker holds the prize with an annual salary of $ 14.75 million. In 2020 with the Denver Broncos, Simmons had five interceptions and 96 tackles. In addition to getting a big sum, he will probably try to find a team that has a better chance of winning than the Colorado organization.

JuJu Smith-Schuster

JuJu Smith-Schuster, wide receiver

After two excellent first seasons in the NFL, Smith-Schuster’s performance has greatly diminished in 2019 and 2020. He still registered nine touchdowns (a career high) last year. Playing in a limited attack with the Steelers, he could wreak havoc with a squad made up of more talented players.

Brandon Scherff, guard

Scherff is the best indoor offensive lineman available in 2021. The one who played for the Washington football team last season allowed just three quarterback sacks and only received two penalties. According to the PFF site, he is among the top 3 linemen for passing and the top 6 for races.

Lavonte David

Lavonte David, linebacker

After being under the radar for too long with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, David has finally received some recognition in 2020. In the spotlight brought in by Tom Brady, the 31-year-old veteran chased his little fellow and has amassed at least 100 tackles in an eighth season of the nine he played in the Goodell Tour.

It wouldn’t be surprising, however, if the reigning Super Bowl champions manage to keep him in their ranks.
