On NFL.com, since the offseason news is starting to slow, they put together a list (everyone loves lists, right?) of the top 10 players that are under 25 years old. There are some very obvious names on the list and others you might not agree with.

The top 10 are:

  1. NaVorro Bowman
  2. A.J. Green
  3. Rob Gronkowski
  4. LeSean McCoy
  5. Von Miller
  6. Cam Newton
  7. Jason Pierre-Paul
  8. Maurkice Pouncey
  9. Aldon Smith
  10. Matthew Stafford

Arizona's Patrick Peterson just missed the cut.

You could definitely make the case for Peterson. His impact on the games the Cardinals played last season was very clear. He won games almost single-handedly.

At the same time, his impact on defense has not been made yet. He has improvement to make and is poised to be a breakout defensive player. If he does that, considering he is only 21 years old, he will most certainly crack this list in a year from now.
