The Arizona Cardinals boast two of the most talented players in the NFL heading into 2017. Not two of the best players at their respective positions, but two of the overall top players in the league.

We know about Patrick Peterson clocking in at 35 on the 2017 Pro Football Focus top 50 Players, but what about David Johnson?

Johnson checks in at 15 on the list, meaning, he is one of the NFL's best 15 players.

The NFL leader in yards from scrimmage from 2016 is ranked 30 spots ahead of rookie phenom Ezekiel Elliott, who many consider the best running back in the league.

What makes Johnson so great is that he is as dangerous as a runner as he is a receiver, making him one of, if not the top dual threat offensive player in the NFL.

Having Johnson and Peterson should give the Cardinals something to continue to build around in the short term on both the offensive and defensive side of the ball.

Congrats to DJ.
