10. Alshon Jeffery, WR, Bears
Alshon Jeffery is not the most thought-about wide receiver, but as we’ve seen before, he can be pretty explosive. This guy has loads of potential, and to reach that potential, he needs a good or at least decent quarterback. It’s a shame that he’s had five seasons wasted on the bears, but if the team that picks him up has a good quarterback, this guy could be epic.
9. Jamaal Charles, RB, Chiefs
Let’s face it, Jamaal Charles is already a game-changer. But, there are some teams that are in need of a running back. To those teams, an opportunity has come. Charles has 7,260 career yards and 43 career TDs. So really, whichever team picks him up will have an impressive run game.
8. DeSean Jackson, WR, Redskins
DeSean Jackson is a very speedy player, and could dominate with the right quarterback. This guy’s job is pretty simple; run for 40 yards, catch the ball, score a touchdown. On teams like the Panthers, Seahawks, and maybe even Patriots, DeSean can possibly make some playoff efforts.
7. Dont’a Hightower, ILB, Patriots
This guy has 17 career sacks, so not too bad for an inside linebacker. He forced a safety this season too. Also not too bad. The former Patriot will soon be entering his prime years. If the right team picks him up, he can possibly lead the team to the playoffs.
6. A.J. Bouye, CB, Texans
Although he’s got only 6 picks and one TD, A.J. has potential. I mean, he actually managed to pick off Tom Brady in the divisional round this season. I know I say this every single time, but if he goes to the right team, he could possibly be a game changer.
5. Colin Kaepernick, QB, 49ers
Yes, the kneeler. But, with 72 passing TD’s and 13 rushing TD’s, he can get better. If he lands on a team that has some good receivers, he could be a little more respected.
4. Darrelle Revis, CB, Jets
With 29 career picks, and 466 career yards, Revis is and will be great, no matter which team picks him up. Darrelle Revis is no stranger to switching teams; in 2013, he was shipped to the Buccaneers, and the next season shipped to the Pats and played in super bowl 49. I’ll be interested to see who picks him up.
3. Adrian Peterson, RB, Vikings
Well, if you didn’t pick up Jamaal Charles on time, at least you got AP. He may have a few years left, but worth the money. With 11,747 career yards and 97 career TD’s, he’s unstoppable, unless, of course, he’s injured. But seriously, dat face tho…
2. Sam Shields, CB, Packers
Sam Shields has 245 tackles and 18 picks. This man has been dubbed a “legend” in Madden, but I think their exaggerating. Sam Shields isn’t great, but he can be great if he goes on a team that will function more with him. But, otherwise, he should just keep doing what he’s doing.
- Julius Peppers, OLB, Packers This beast has 644 tackles, 143.5 sacks, and 11 picks. He may be 37, but still a boss. Peppers, like Darrelle Revis, he’s no stranger to peing on new teams. He was drafted as a Panther, went to Chicago, then to Green Bay. Personally, I think that the Panthers should have Peppers for a few more years while they have might get better cornerbacks. No matter who picks him up, he will still be a notable linebacker.
