Today, I will give you my top five players at each position and also by scheme play too. I will even include Kickers, Punters, and Long Snappers as they are people too that play a pivotal part in the game today. Also, both slot positions (Wide Receiver and Cornerback) will be in the rankings. Lastly, the NFL is trying to exclude kick returning from the game that we all love, so let’s give some love to the players that make game changing players when the ball is returnable.
