NFL - Five players to watch out for this coming season

Adrian Peterson Vikings

The start of the season is two weeks away and we've listed five players that you should look out for throughout the regular season. Take a look and tell us what you think?

Here are our picks...

Adrian Peterson – Minnesota Vikings

It would be rude not to include him on this list. Voted the best player in the NFL he consistently puts up big numbers even after suffering a serious knee injury. You may say this is an obvious choice but you will not want to miss a play that Peterson is involved he has the ability to create spectacular moments every time he steps on to the field.

Tavon Austin – St Louis Rams

He’s neither tall nor strong like the best wide receivers we see today like Calvin and Andre Johnson (no relation!) but what he possesses is blistering speed, he may very well be the fastest player in the league. He may have some rookie inconsistencies but you can see him in some big plays this year. Sam Bradford will have some fun with his new weapon this season.

Andrew Luck – Indianapolis Colts

The standout player in the 2012 NFL draft he had a rookie season that exceeded everybody’s expectations, he led his Colts team to the playoffs just a year after posting a record 2-14. He will continue to develop at a quick rate and he will no doubt be impressing fans even more all season long.

Brandon Marshall – Chicago Bears

On his day he can be a game changing player, since moving to the Bears he has connected well with his QB Jay Cutler but this could be the season that he and Cutler really turn it on. A nuisance to defences with his size and speed, a nightmare to cover. I think you’ll be seeing him on plays of the week a lot from now until February.

Aldon Smith – San Francisco 49ers

He has only had two years in the league and already has made a big impact. He registered 14 QB sacks in his rookie season and 19.5 last year, expect that number to increase this season. Smith has established himself as a game changer, watch out for him this he could spearhead a Super Bowl winning defense.
