Ranking The 56 Best Players In Super Bowl LVI

38. Samaje Perine, RB, Cincinnati

Samaje Perine can be credited for sparking Cincinnati’s comeback. The former Oklahoma Sooner turned a screen pass into the Bengals’ first touchdown of the day on a 41-yard catch-and-run. He’s another example of Cincinnati’s depth at the skill positions. With teams having to put such a large emphasis on players like Mixon, Chase, and Higgins, it becomes increasingly difficult to stop the “other guys” on the team. If the Rams aren’t careful, Perine could burn them for a big play when it’s least expected.

37. Darious Williams, CB, Los Angeles

This is a matchup Cincinnati will try to exploit. You can be sure that Jalen Ramsey — PFF’s No. 1 corner in the NFL — will be tasked with slowing down Ja’Marr Chase. Darious Williams, on the other hand, was ranked No. 79 out of 120 corners in the NFL this season. At only 5-foot-9, his smallish size could be a major problem when matched up with Tyler Boyd (6-foot-2) or Tee Higgins (6-foot-4). This development is certainly something to watch.
