Defensive tackle Geno Atkins is simply the best player on a very bad football team. Period. Now 32 years of age, he hasn’t slowed down yet. In 2019, he racked up 47 total tackles and 4.5 sacks even though every offense he faced made a point to limit his game-wrecking ability.
When the curtain drew on the regular season, he had earned another Pro Bowl nod, his eighth.
There are so many options on the Cleveland Browns roster that it makes you wonder why this team can’t win. There’s Joel Bitonio, Denzel Ward, Jarvis Landry, Joe Schobert, and of course Odell Beckham Jr., but adding Nick Chubb to the Eagles’ backfield means you add size, speed, and dependability.
He started every game in 2019 and earned his first Pro Bowl nod.
Who wouldn’t take Minkah Fitzpatrick on their team? The Pittsburgh Steelers gave up their first-round selection in 2020’s draft to get him, and no one saw that as a mistake. That says everything that you need to know about how great he is.
You can’t go wrong with just about anybody you steal from the Baltimore Ravens roster. They have an embarrassment of riches and tied an NFL record by sending 12 players to the Pro Bowl in 2019. You can throw a dart at this team’s roster and leave satisfied.
Then, they added a nice draft class. For now, if we’re poaching their squad, we’ll take the left tackle, Ronnie Stanley. Marshall Yanda is a nice option too, but Stanley wins here because he’s younger. He helps make what the Ravens do on offense look so easy.
