With each great player that hangs up the cleats there is another one just entering the league to replace him. Names like Ray Lewis, Ed Reed, Peyton Manning, Tom Brady, Randy Moss, Jeff Saturday, Reggie Wayne, Andre Johnson, Tony Gonzalez and many others have retired or are a couple of years away from doing so.As we see those players begin to leave with their NFL legacies almost over, a new batch of players such as JJ Watt, Andrew Luck, Alfred Morris, Joe Haden and many others are already making their impact for their respective teams in the early stages of their careers.Here is a list of the Top 25 NFL players under the age of 25 that are quickly making their names reverberate in households across the nation. *this is not ranking, simply a list**all statistics are from Profootballreference.com
