Aaron Donald, DT LA Rams
Defensive tackle Aaron Donald is widely considered the best player already on the Rams after only playing three seasons.
He was a formidable defender as soon as he stepped onto the field his rookie year and has been consistent each year. In his first three years, he leads all defensive tackles in sacks (28.0) and tackles for loss (57.0)
If Donald continues on this pace he will be primed for a massive contract extension with the team and be one of the highest paid defensive lineman in the league. According to ESPN, there have only been nine players with more sacks since 2014, and all are labeled as edge rushers.
If you aren’t familiar with this name yet you should get used to hearing a lot more about Aaron Donald for years to come. Hall of Fame is not out of the question with the talents he has across the board, and his consistent motor is eye opening.
