Jamal Adams, S, Seahawks
Adams has earned a reputation as arguably the game’s best safety, as evidenced by his All-Pro season with the Jets in 2019 when he had 6.5 sacks and 10 tackles for loss, in addition to 75 sackles. He’s regularly used as a blitzer and has created some huge hits on quarterbacks, as well as wideouts.
Kwon Alexander, OLB, 49ers
Alexander has been a hard hitter and tackling machine since he arrived to the NFL in 2015. Unfortunately, he’s struggled to stay healthy in recent seasons but was a Pro Bowler in 2017 and has consistently forced fumbles.
Joey Bosa, DE, Chargers
Bosa has been an elite pass rusher since he entered the league in 2016, and was rewarded before this season with a lucrative control. He has 44 sacks in 56 career games and is feared in the pocket by quarterbacks.
