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.

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.
