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!

RB Jay Ajayi
OT Laremy Tunsil

I also think CBs Xavien Howard and Tony Lippett have extremely high ceilings. Howard however has a minuscule sample size and Lippett has been being slow-cooked for a couple seasons and has his fair share of bad tape.

If DT Jordan Philips learns to put in consistent effort he can be a wrecking ball.

WR DvP likes to flash but needs to learn to be a better pro to take it to the next level.


But realistically, the first two listed are the only real options for Miami. If I had to pick one, I'd go with Tunsil. But Ajayi may be the more popular choice.

Devante Parker.

Stills will be gone via FA and Parker takes his place as the deep threat. He can high point the ball with the best of them and that will make for some nice sports center coverage. Year three is often the magic number for NFL WRs.

Ajayi has been named to a Pro Bowl so that takes him out of the running. Devante Parker and Tunsil.

Ah yes, I forgot he was an alternate.

Have to go with Tunsil here. It isn't sexy, but a long term LT isn't easy to find.

1) Tunsil
2) Parker
3) Lippett/Howard. I bet at least one of them becomes really good.

Tunsil is #19 for those who haven't been keeping up.
