Hi guys,

I'm going to be compiling a list of the top 20 players in the NFL who appear poised for superstardom and I'm soliciting opinions from every fanbase to nominate a player from their team.

Please discuss the possible players to nominate here. Make a poll if you must.

I'll also need one or two of you to provide quotes explaining why you think this player is a future star in the league, and possibly some videos or gifs of highlights, if available.

A couple of rules for inclusion, however:

1. The player must be on his rookie contract.
2. The player must not have been selected to any Pro Bowls or received any other league awards.

Thanks for your help!

what's the standard for "league awards?" marcus mariota is the (very) obvious choice here, but he did win AFC offensive player of the month in november.

I guess if Mariota doesn't count...

Henry, Sharpe or maybe Byard? There really isn't much to pick from.

I'll go with Mariota, then.
I already know a pretty good amount about him. Could use some highlight reel gifs and whatnot.

Can go through his timeline starting around late December and find a few more if necessary.

If you have trouble getting the gifs off of twitter, copy the link to the tweet and paste it here: https://savedeo.com/sites/twitter

After you click download, it'll give you a link that looks like this: https://video.twimg.com/tweet_video/C1Am7EhXcAQlPb1.mp4

Take that url, go to imgur.com, click on new post at the top, and click on video to gif at the bottom of the upload screen. Make the duration start at 0:00 and end when the video ends and it'll turn it in to a gif:

http://imgur.com/hOIxYvz

When you right click the image and copy the link, it'll still be a .mp4:

http://i.imgur.com/hOIxYvz.mp4

But what you can do is remove .mp4 from that link and replace it with .gif and get this:

Mariota is #2, but only because the guy ahead of him did something unspeakable to an opponent.
