Aaron Donald

Jackson Meinke, Editor

These 4 men that make a living off of wrecking people physically and mentally. These people are Aaron Donald one of the strongest players ever, Maxx Crosbey an up rising star, T.J Watt brother of all pro lineman J.J Watt, and Myles Garret a person that was suspended for half of a season. They are going to be ranked from worst to best even though they are the best in the league.

At number 4 we have Maxx Crosby. Maxx Crosby had a breakout season for the Raiders last season and earned himself a big extension. Here are more of his stats. Maxx is 6’5, 255lb and is just a force to be reckoned with. He went to his first Pro Bowl last year and it is the first of many. 

At number 3 we have Myles Garret. Myles Garret was the first overall pick to the Browns in the 2017 NFL draft and he has shown why. Here are some of his stats. Myles is a 3 time pro bowler and a 2 time all pro. Myles Garret has a really bright future and is already a super star. 

At number 2 we have T.J Watt. T.J Watt is the brother of the great J.J Watt. T.J plays for the Pittsburgh Steelers and has spent his whole career there. Here are some of his stats. T.J Watt has won defensive player of the year, has been to 4 pro bowls and is a 3 time all pro. T.J tied the single season sack record last season and now shares it with Micheal Strahan.

At number 1 we have Aaron Donald. Aaron Donald has been the most dominant player in the league for the last 3 years. He has played for the Rams his whole career. Here are some of his stats. Aaron Donald is a 8x pro bowler, 7x all pro, All 2010’s team, Super Bowl Champ, and  3x defensive player of the year. Aaron Donald is one of the best players of all time and his legacy is not over yet.

Some honorable mentions are Chris Jones, J.J Watt, Joey Bosa, Nick Bosa and Trey Henderson. All these players are dominant forces, but the 4 stand above the rest. The reason is that Maxx Crosby is a dominant force against the run. T.J Watt is a sack king. Myles Garret is a speed rusher that is almost impossible to get passed. Then Aaron Donald is all of those combined, but he does it better. That is why Aaron Donald stand above the rest.
