RANKED: The Top 50 Players in Today’s NFL

44. Eric Berry

Berry is the NFL’s ultimate warrior. Having overcome both cancer in 2014 and a torn ACL in 2011, Berry is facing a difficult task coming off a torn Achilles. Easily the best player on Kansas City’s defense, Berry is also an elite safety in the league. A three-time All-Pro and five-time Pro Bowler, Berry picked off four passes and returned two of those for touchdowns in 2016. In addition to being a ball-hawk, Berry is a sure tackler.

43. Keenan Allen

A healthy Keenan Allen is one of the best receivers in football. Finally playing his first full season as a pro in 2017, Allen torched the AFC to the tune of 102 receptions, 1,393 receiving yards, and six touchdowns. Allen will be the Chargers’ No. 1 option again this season. With tight end Hunter Henry out for the year due to an ACL injury, don’t be surprised if Allen leads the league in targets.

42. A.J. Bouye

The Jaguars hit the jackpot with Bouye. Not only did they poach an elite corner from a division rival (Texans), but Jacksonville added a piece that — combined with Jalen Ramsey — results in one of the best secondaries in all of football. Bouye picked off six passes in his debut season with the Jags. He didn’t allow a single touchdown pass when quarterback’s threw in his direction during the regular season. His staunch play resulted in an NFL-low 33.8 passer rating against Bouye.
