When it comes to NFL player rankings, a team gives pride to those who make it to the top positions. Fans share in the pride of these players because they have been rooting for these players since the start of their careers. Team owners, as well as the coaches, keep a constant eye on those who regularly make it to the list and find ways to sign up for the team the next chance they get. The players, on the other hand, have to make sure they maintain that top ranking to increase their market value. Listed below are five NFL players that made it to the top of the rankings.
Chris Johnson, Tennessee, RB Standing at 5'11", weighing 191 pounds at 25 years of age, Johnson has made it clear to the football world that he wants to dominate everything. This Orlando-born player has three seasons to back up his experience that made him a superstar he is today.
Adrian Peterson, Minnesota, RB Being two inches taller than Johnson is Peterson who was able to make it to the second place of the NFL player rankings. He is also a 25-year old that weighs in at 217 pounds. He is now in his fourth season with the NFL and fans have been waiting for him to get into the limelight and shadow Johnson. There is still so much to expect from him and the fans have yet to see him rank at number one.
Maurice Jones – Drew, Jacksonville, RB Just like the first two players, Jones-Drew is also a 25-year old trying his best to keep up with the demands of the NFL. He may be shorter than Johnson and Peterson, being 5'7", but it did not stop him to land on one of the top five players. This 208-pound player is at his fifth season already and is doing his best to advance further on this list.
Ray Rice, Baltimore, RB He may be the youngest of the top five players, who turned 23 last January 22nd, but he knows that he has so much to achieve in this sport. A 5'8" player knows what it takes to be at the top. This is his third season now and people should expect him to show more action on the seasons ahead.
Frank Gore, San Francisco, RB He may be the oldest included on the top five positions of the NFL player rankings, but it seems that he does not mind. Weighing in at 217 pounds and standing at 5'9", he sure can show the other players what it takes to be playing for six seasons in the NFL.
The players on the top five positions will surely show the NFL that they are the kings of the game. They will do everything to protect their standing. Working hard is the key to go higher in the ladder, doing it one season at a time.
