PLAYERS: Aaron Williams
TEAMS: Buffalo Bills
Typically speaking, sports fans tend to worry about two things – the past and the future. They’ll debate who was the greatest player of all-time, while also spending hours discussing whether or not a rookie is going to be develop into an All-Pro. Both are fun exercises, things that keep fans engaged and the beer flowing at the local tavern. But they miss out on what is most important – the present. Forget about yesterday. Never mind tomorrow. Let’s talk about today. Who are the best players in the NFL right now? Who can help a team win the Super Bowl this season? Who is writing a legacy with each passing week? Those are the questions the editors at cover32 seek to answer in this series, “Top 10 in 2014.” In the coming weeks, every position – as well as head coach, general manager and other off-field areas – will be graded, evaluated and ranked. The series continues with a position that has become a centerpiece of a good defense – safety. It’s no coincidence that teams like Kansas City and Seattle saw their fortunes turn on that side of the ball when they added a great, young safety to their roster; in today’s game, it’s a vital player on the field, one who can make an impact against both the run and the pass. For proof of its importance, check out the contracts being handed out to safeties this offseason. To see the list of the top-10 safeties in the NFL right now, click here.
