Former NFL scout Matt Williamson writes about the league from X’s and O’s and talent evaluation perspectives. This week, he gives us his list of best players 25 or under.
My task was almost impossible, sort of like asking Steelers rookie QB Devlin “Duck” Hodges to complete a deep pass: Pick the 10 best NFL players 25 or under. I selected five on offense, five on defense. For my list, I spread around the talent, picking a QB, running back, O-lineman, tight end and wide receiver. Similarly, I spread the talent around on defense, selecting an interior lineman, edge rusher, linebacker, safety and corner.
