Written By: Roy Countryman @Blitzalytics @PreacherBoyRoy


We have come to the midway point in the NFL schedule, the trade deadline is past, and now all that is left is the stretch run where you see the true contenders seperate themselves from the pack. That is not all to keep an eye on though, as you see the halfway point leads to those choice players who are due for Unrestricted Free Agency an opportunity to build up some momentum for a big pay day. This article is meant to examine the top 53 free agents, and where their stock is to this point in the season, and how they are looking down the stretch. We will not look into Restricted Free Agents, due to uncertainty surrounding on what tender amount each team will assign to such players. All I can say is enjoy...


*Age is of Jan.1st 2019.*


1.Le’Veon Bell-RB-Pittsburgh Steelers

Stats-None

Age-26

Stock Report- ⇆

Le’Veon gets an incomplete grade due to him not stepping onto the field. Is there positives to his holdout, of course, such as lack of wear on his body, but it also is alarming the cat and mouse game he has played with the front office, which might ultimately factor into his final contract offers.


2.Jadeveon Clowney-EDGE-Houston Texans

Stats-23 Tackles, 4.5 Sacks

Age-25

Stock Report-🔺

Clowney is a very intriguing free agent case. One because he has rare physical skill set, but has continually battled the injury bug since coming into the league. So far this year he has been healthy, and has been a consistent source of pressure opposite Watt. The ultimate question is he going to be available enough for the dollar amount you are going to have to pay him.


3.Landon Collins-S-New York Giants

Stats-62 Tackles, 1 FF, 4 PD.

Age-24

Stock Report-🔺

Collins is a terrific combination safety, and his stats are solid yet again.He is a thumper in run support, and has good enough coverage ability to stick with TE’s in man coverage, as well as find ways to disrupt routes in zone coverage. He is in line for quite the payday.


4.Earl Thomas-S-Seattle Seahawks

Stats-22 Tackles, 3 INT, 5 PD.

Age-29

Stock Report-🔺

Yes, Thomas is heading into free agency after a broken leg derailed ended his season prematurely, but he was playing lights out before that. What was more impressive about how well he was playing was the fact that he did not play a down of preseason football or even get any reps in training camp. Yes, Thomas is creeping up to the dreaded 30 year old mark, but mark my words he is still an elite player, and will have an Eric Weddle type effect on his next team.


5.C.J. Mosley-LB-Ravens

Stats-53 Tackles, 1 PD.

Age-26

Stock Report-🔻

Mosley is a stud ILB in his prime that is hitting the open market, the only problem is he is not putting up the elite stats that we are all used to. Although he may be doing more of the dirty work to allow his teammates to succeed, that doesn’t get you paid. The other thing to consider is he plays a position that most general managers don’t place as high of a value on as others.


6.DeMarcus Lawrence-DE-Dallas Cowboys

Stats-30 Tackles, 5.5 Sacks.

Age-26

Stock Report-🔺

Lawrence has been consistently flashing the skill set that made the Cowboys franchise tag him last year. That type of regular pass rushing prowess leads him to a big payday, and he just might price himself out of the Cowboys comfort zone sans a second time being tagged.


7.Grady Jarrett-DT-Atlanta Falcons

Stats-21 Tackles, 2.0 Sacks.

Age-25

Stock Report-🔻

Jarrett has been bit by the injury bug a bit this year, which is the root cause of why his numbers are depressed. It also showed how valuable he is to that defense, and for any defense that would be perusing for his services. He just hasn’t been able to get back on his feet after the injury, and with a ton of his teammates going down with injuries around him will lead to a more focused approach to negating his impact on a game will lessen his chance to pad those numbers going forward.


8.Ndamukong Suh-DT-Los Angeles Rams

Stats-22 Tackles, 3 Sacks, 2 PD.

Age-31

Stock Report-🔺

What a smart business decision for Suh. Get cut, and then join the most dominant DL in the NFL. Of course his numbers should be good playing opposite him, but Suh is flashing the rare ability that made him such a high draft pick back in the day. The only knock on him when he gets to back to the open market might be if he can still produce elite results without such a talented supporting cast.


9.Frank Clark-DE-Seattle Seahawks

Stats-15 Tackles, 6.5 Sacks, 3 FF, 1 INT, 1 PD.

Age-25

Stock Report-🔺

Once a head scratching high round pick, with a major off the field question mark, all Clark has done is produce since being drafted. He has been a major force of a resurgent Seattle defense, and will be one of the most sought after free agents this offseason unless the Seahawk tag him.


10.Dee Ford-OLB-Kansas City Chiefs

Stats-22 Tackles, 8.0 Sacks, 4 FF, 1 PD.

Age-27

Stock Report-🔺

On a defense where he always seemed to be cast in the shadow of Justin Houston, it is Ford who is the now dominant pass rusher due to the injury bug taking its toll on Houston. He seems to have finally shed the bust label of being a high round pick, and the light seems to finally have went on where he is not only getting to the QB, but creating turnovers, which GM’s love to throw money at those type of players.


11.Ha Ha Clinton-Dix-S-Washington Redskins

Stats-27 Tackles, 1.0 Sacks, 1 FF, 3 INT, 3 PD.

Age-26

Stock Report-🔺

Clinton-Dix is in somewhat of a crossroads to his season, he was putting up solid all-around stats in Green Bay, but he was just dealt to Washington who was in need of difference makers on the back end. This grade is predicated on him coming in, and putting up quality numbers down a playoff stretch run.


12.Sheldon Richardson-DT-Minnesota Vikings

Stats-27 Tackles, 1.0 Sacks.

Age-28

Stock Report-🔺

Richardson will do much better for himself on the open market one year removed from a messy year in NY. He has been a standout performer both in run defense, as well as a pass rusher. Yes he only has one sack, but he has the fifth most QB pressures from interior defenders with 22, and has been a pivotal player in the Vikings being able to keep four of their opponents to under 100 yards rushing. He should not have to settle for a one year contract after this year’s efforts.


13.Trey Flowers-DE-New England Patriots

Stats-27 Tackles, 2.0 Sacks, 1 FF, 2 PD.

Age-25

Stock Report-🔺

Flowers is one of the most underrated edge players in the NFL. He is a force in run defense, by setting edges, and penetrating into rushing lanes. He is an ever improving pass rusher who has put up solid numbers ever since the Patriots have selected in the fourth round back in 2015. This year he has continued his ascension, and has positioned himself well for a big payday that New England may not be willing to give him.


14.Terrell Suggs-EDGE-Baltimore Ravens

Stats-20 Tackles, 5.5 Sacks, 1 FF, 4 PD.

Age-36

Stock Report-🔺

Suggs seems to have found the fountain of youth, he is putting up elite pressure numbers, and it is because Baltimore has scaled back his snap count. Will he get vast amounts of money on the open market, not necessarily, but a Super Bowl contending team who thinks they only need one more piece to put them over the top may spend handsomely to add this HOF worthy pass rusher to their squad. But would Suggs leave Baltimore?


15.Brandon Graham-DE-Philadelphia Eagles

Stats-22 Tackles, 1.5 Sacks, 1 PD.

Age-30

Stock Report-🔻

Graham was very vocal about wanting a contract extension this past offseason, but Philly rebuffed his comments, mostly I believe because of age. He has earned a down grade based purely off of stats, but he is still making a big impact as a pass rusher as well as playing well in run defense, he simply isn’t getting home enough for the stat sheet.


16.LaMarcus Joyner-S-Los Angeles Rams

Stats-34 Tackles, 1.0 Sacks.

Age-28

Stock Report-🔻

Another victim of a lack of eye-popping stats, but still playing solid all around football Joyner should still be in line for a big-time offer, because he is versatile. He is able to play deep third safety, and show off his instincts to flow to the ball, or he possesses good fluidity to drop down and cover from a nickel position. He is also a solid contributor in run defense.


17.David Irving-DT-Dallas Cowboys

Stats-4 Tackles, 1.0 Sacks.

Age-25

Stock Report-🔻

A absolute physical freak, standing 6’7”, 290 lb. frame, with an absolute ridiculous 87 ¾” wingspan! The only thing holding back Irving from being top three on this list is himself. He has a myriad of off the field issues, that he says he now has in check, but a lot of teams may not buy into that fact. He may have to settle for a one year prove it deal, but if he can find a coach that has a history of taking on questionable character, and nurture his skill set it could lead to epic results.


18.Golden Tate-WR-Philadelphia Eagles

Stats-44 Rec., 517 yds., 11.8 ypc, 3 TD.

Age-30

Stock Report-🔺

-One of the best run after the catch WR’s in the game has just caught a big break by going to the Eagles. He was putting up solid numbers in Detroit, but now he has the chance to put up some big numbers for a offense starving for playmakers to place around Wentz.


19.Matt Paradis-C-Denver Broncos

Stats-56 Games Started

Age-29

Stock Report-🔺

One of the lone bright spots on a dismal offensive line in Denver. Paradis has been an equally imposing force pass protecting as well as getting out in front on running plays. He is a leader on the field, and is incredibly intelligent. If Denver somehow allows him to walk in free agency, there will be a number of suitors waiting to pounce on this type of high quality interior OL.


20.Anthony Barr-LB-Minnesota Vikings

Stats-29 Tackles, 1 FF, 2 PD.

Age-26

Stock Report-🔻

Barr has been a victim this year of being played out of position on a number of plays, mostly being asked to try and cover TE’s and RB’s downfield which is not one of his strong suits. He is at his best at playing a LEO type role in a blitzing 4-3 scheme, where he can show off his pass rushing prowess. I believe the Vikings will let him walk after this season, so he could be one of the steals of free agency if he can go to a team that will use him in the right manner.


21.Dante Fowler Jr.-DE-Los Angeles Rams

Stats-8 Tackles, 2.0 Sacks, 1 FF.

Age-24

Stock Report-🔺

Fowler in my initial thought process was going to be a member of the falling category, due to a lack of big-time production, and only playing less than 30% of defensive snaps in Jacksonville, but now I am placing a rising distinction due to the situation he just got placed into. He will now get the chance to face a ton of one on one matchups with a lot of the focus going to Suh and Donald, and if he does not put up big numbers down the stretch he will see his stock dwindle.


22.Tyrann Mathieu-S-Houston Texans

Stats-46 Tackles, 2.0 Sacks, 2 INT, 5 PD.

Age-26

Stock Report-🔺

Mathieu is a few seasons removed from being in the discussion as one of the best safeties in the NFL. Injuries ravaged the last couple of years he played in Arizona, but he has shined since signing with Houston. He is a force in run defense, and has been making some key plays in pass defense, that has allowed him to accrue some excellent all around production.


23.Bryce Callahan-CB-Chicago Bears

Stats-28 Tackles, 1.0 Sacks, 1 INT, 4 PD.

Age-27

Stock Report-🔺

One of the best slot corners in the business. He is terrific at sticking with the quicker than fast slot receivers, and causing a lot of disruption in timing of routes with a good jam. He also displays good timing and instincts in rushing the passer off the edge. He should be in line for a good payday, even as a Nickel CB, which is now being viewed as a starting position due to the evolution of three receiver sets.


24.Rodger Saffold-G-Los Angeles Rams

Stats-103 Games Started

Age-30

Stock Report-🔺

Saffold will be foraying into the free agent pool for a second time, and this time he is coming off a great season. He has been a force in blocking for the potential OPOY in Todd Gurley, and has not embarrassed himself in keeping Goff clean either. The only lingering issue is that he has a shoulder issue that actually nixed a free agent deal the first go around, that may rear its ugly head again.


25.Ezekiel Ansah-DE-Detroit Lions

Stats-4 Tackles, 1.0 Sacks.

Age-29

Stock Report-🔻

Ansah has had a rough go of it this year, missing most of the year due to a shoulder injury. Before this season he had been a productive pass rusher on the outside as a 4-3 DE. The injury issues, as well as only being able to play in a 4-3 may limit his market going forward.


26.Lorenzo Alexander-DE-Buffalo Bills

Stats-35 Tackles, 4.5 Sacks, 1 FF, 1 INT, 5 PD.

Age-35

Stock Report-🔺

Ever since Alexander has taken residence in Buffalo, all he has done is become a pass rushing force. A perennial special teams standout finally got an opportunity, and he did not let it slip through his grasp. He will have a limited market if he makes it to free agency due to age and scheme fit, but I think he has more value as a veteran leader and schematic fit going back to Buffalo.


27.Daryl Williams-RT-Carolina Panthers

Stats-29 Games Started

Age-26

Stock Report-🔻

A developing stud RT, whose his ascension was cut short due to a knee injury in training camp, and then he worked himself back into playing shape only to re injure the same knee in their first regular season game. A better pass protector than run blocker, he excels by using his length, and bulk to be able to stonewall defenders. Teams will be willing to gamble on the up and coming RT, even with questions about the knee.


28.Teddy Bridgewater-QB-New Orleans Saints

Stats-None

Age-26

Stock Report-⇆

Bridgewater gets an incomplete grade due to him not actually not getting into a game action yet, but I was tempted to put him with a rising grade due to being around and learning not only from Sean Payton, but the great Drew Brees as well. I believe he won’t even make it to the open market, being that the Saints gave up a very valuable third round pick to acquire his services. After some assurances from the Saints front office that he will be Brees successor, I believe he will sign a very complicated and complex deal to reward him based on playing time, and accolades.


29.Mark Ingram-RB-New Orleans Saints

Stats-41 car., 148 yds., 3.6 ypc, 2 TD, 2 rec., 20 yds., 1 Fum Lost.

Age-29

Stock Report-🔻

Ingram’s stock plummeted right out of the gate this season due to a 4 fame PED suspension, and he still has not got his feet under him since returning. A hard nosed, between the tackles thumper, who is creeping ever so closer to that dreaded 30 year old mark is not a good place to be when approaching free agency. Throw in the suspension, and it may be wise for him to try and find a new deal in New Orleans to play second fiddle to Alvin Kamara, where his value is higher due to continuity.


30.Tyrell Williams-WR-Los Angeles Chargers

Stats-20 rec, 428 yds., 21.4 ypc, 4 TD, 1 Fum Lost.

Age-26

Stock Report-🔺

Williams has been inconsistent on being able to count on his production on a week to week basis. He has been one of the best deep threats in the league this year for Philip Rivers, because of his length, and great deep speed. He will find a nice contract that will value the niche that he fills, and I could see a team like the Steelers bring him in on a mid tier deal that he might outperform.


31.Cole Beasley-WR-Dallas Cowboys

Stats-33 rec., 350 yds., 10.6 ypc, 2 TD.

Age-29

Stock Report-🔺

Beasley has been one of Dak Prescott’s favorite targets since he has entered the league. Strictly a slot WR, he wins with quickness, and route running ability, and has been a terrific safety valve for the Cowboys offense. He is putting up quality numbers for his position, and should find a nice sized contract most likely back home in Dallas.


32.Thomas Davis-LB-Panthers

Stats-16 Tackles, 3 PD.

Age-35

Stock Report-🔻

Davis’s season debut was delayed because of a 4-Game PED suspension, and it has taken some time for him to get his seasoned legs into shape. A stand up guy off the field, as well as a true warrior of the game to come back from so many knee injuries, he will struggle to find a respectable deal if he does not come on with a vengeance in the second half, and may be better off ultimately hanging up his cleats.


33.Shaquil Barrett-OLB-Broncos

Stats-19 Tackles, 2.0 Sacks, 1 PD.

Age-26

Stock Report-🔺

Barrett has had to take the scraps of playing time due to the emergence of rookie phenom Bradley Chub, but he has made the most of his opportunities. He has been equally productive in run defense as well as rushing the passer, and if he can continue to produce in a limited capacity he should be able to find a fair offer from a team willing to let him get starter snaps.


34.Margus Hunt-DT-Colts

Stats-14 Tackles, 4.0 Sacks, 1 FF, 2 PD.

Age-31

Stock Report-🔺

Hunt has tremendous length, and is a noted special teams force for blocking kicks because of it, but now he is getting an opportunity to finally play a large amount of snaps each week, and is flourishing in that role. Due to him being over 30, he may not find a tremendously long deal, but should be able to get a good amount of annual average value.


35.Brent Urban-DE-Baltimore Ravens

Stats-12 Tackles, 2 PD.

Age-27

Stock Report-🔺

Urban has been a valuable member of the defensive line rotation in Baltimore the last few seasons, and is exceptional in run defense, where he can stack and shed with his terrific length and hand usage. He is lacking in the pass rushing department, but he does show a knack for getting his arms up into throwing lanes. Urban should be able to get a mid tier deal, and possibly find a team to allow him to play starting DL snaps.


36.Muhammad Wilkerson-DT-Packers

Stats-5 Tackles.

Age-29

Stock Report-🔺

After finally escaping New York, he was so excited to show the world why New York drafted him in the first round, but tragically he experienced a leg injury that led to his placement on IR. He was showing a resurgence in effort and ability as a pass rusher prior to the injury, and his best bet might be to take a short term deal back in Green Bay so that he can help reestablish his value around the league.


37.Ramon Foster-LG-Pittsburgh Steelers

Stats-122 Games Started

Age-32

Stock Report-🔺

One of the vocal leaders of the Pittsburgh decorated OL, he is a tremendous communicator, and plays with a great presence while run and pass blocking. Whatever he may lack in true measurables he makes up for with intangibles. He had to shake off a preseason knee injury to be able to play this season, and is generally a very durable and effective OL, although teams on the open market may not throw tons of money towards a somewhat older OL who may not be the same player at the end of the contract


38.Henry Anderson-DE-New York Jets

Stats-15 Tackles, 2.5 Sacks, 3 PD.

Age-27

Stock Report-🔺

The Jets have finally found a quality DE to pair with Leonard Williams, and now they need to figure out if they want to commit the funds to him long term. Anderson has always been a quality producer when healthy, and that has been the only knock on him over his career, a lack of availability. He has been a rugged run defender, and and even better threat rushing the passer, especially using his great strength and length to get into throwing lanes. If the Jets decide to move on from him, he should have a robust market as long as he can conclude the season healthy.


39.Ja’Wuan James-RT-Miami Dolphins

Stats-55 Games Started

Age-26

Stock Report-🔺

A former first round selection who has really come into his own in Miami. He is durable, and possesses tremendous length to run pass rushers wide of the pocket. He is a better pass protector than run blocker at this point, but he is no slouch at either. Being that he is a RT it will place a cap on his final annual average value, but the fact he excels in pass protection and this is a passing league it should help him get a hefty deal in the end.


40.Danny Shelton-DT-Patriots

Stats-15 Tackles.

Age-25

Stock Report-🔻

Shelton has been a rock in run defense since he was traded to the Patriots, and is one of the reasons they have been able to limit damage of their opponents. The only problem is that he has regressed a good bit as a pass rusher since his first few seasons in the league, and his stats prove that. Being a two down run clogger can get you a valuable deal, but will not lead to bank breaking deals.


41.Preston Smith-OLB-Redskins

Stats-20 Tackles, 2 PD.

Age-26

Stock Report-🔻

Smith is a productive member of the Redskins defense, the only problem is he does not put up great money making statistics. He has a versatile skill set that can be applied to either a 4-3 DE or an OLB in a 3-4, as well as great length to make an impact on throwing lanes. The lack of difference making stats will put him firmly in the second wave of free agency, but he should be a valuable addition to a defense.


42.Trent Brown-LT-Patriots

Stats-36 Games Started

Age-25

Stock Report-🔺

After being casted away in a draft day trade, because he was replaced by their first round pick the Patriots swooped in this large lad, and have been moulding him since. He was a RT with the 49ers due to his ridiculous stature and length, and was one of the better pass protecting RT in the game for the first two seasons. This year with the help of the Patriots OL coach, and a renewed sense of confidence he has settled in as Tom Brady’s blind side protector. He not only has showed above average pass protection, but has showed a vast improvement as a run blocker. Anytime a quality OT enters the open market there is a chance a team will throw funny money at them in a deal, and Brown is well position to capitalize on his bounceback season. The Patriots have to decide if he is the player from this year, or the struggling OT that got shipped out of San Francisco for a late round pick.


43.Adrian Amos-S-Bears

Stats-32 Tackles, 2 PD.

Age-25

Stock Report-🔻

Amos is who he is. He is a good safety who can make a difference coming down into the box and put up quality tackle production. What he isn’t is a ballhawk, with only 1 career INT. He is a good zone defender, but when asked to cover in man to man situations he will struggle. With a lack of turnovers on his resume a team will offer him a contract as an enforcer, not a game changer. The market for him could be tricky due to the devaluation of the position. A lot of safeties thought they were going to break the bank last year, and they wound up having to settle for smaller deals.


44.Clay Matthews-OLB-Packers

Stats-23 Tackles, 2.5 Sacks.

Age-32

Stock Report-🔻

Matthews was a pass rushing force in his first few seasons in the NFL, then he was miscast as an ILB due to injuries and a lack of an ability to develop a productive player there. Then he slid back outside, and just hasn’t had the same juice rushing the passer. The market for declining aged pass rushers isn’t vast, but a team might take a chance on the name, and get a rejuvenated player in a different environment.


45.K.J. Wright-LB-Seahawks

Stats-5 Tackles, 1 PD.

Age-29

Stock Report-🔻

The breakdown of the vaunted Seahawks defense of Pete Carroll has been constant and steady, with Thomas leaving and now Wright who has struggled with injuries this season they will move forward with a youth movement. Wright in his prime was a monster in run defense, and had good movement skills to be able to contribute in pass defense. This year he has struggled to stay healthy, and when on the field he hasn’t seem like the same player that he was in his prime which does not bode well for his trip to the free agent market.


46.Ronald Darby-CB-Philadelphia Eagles

Stats-38 Tackles, 1 INT, 12 PD.

Age-24

Stock Report-🔺

Young, Check. Good at disrupting at the catch point, Check. Good Speed and Agility, Check. Willingness to contribute in run defense, Check. There is a lot to like about Darby’s game, but he seems to struggle with consistency on a down to down basis, but he is a feisty CB who will keep grinding even if beaten. Since he struggles with consistency, Darby will probably fall into a mid-level deal where he can come in and compete for a starting job.


47. Za’Darius Smith-OLB-Ravens

Stats-24 Tackles, 5.5 Sacks, 1 FF.

Age-26

Stock Report-🔺

I was a huge fan of Smith’s skill set when he came out of the draft. Back then he was the other pass rusher opposite Bud Dupree at Kentucky. He has had a similar distinction in the NFL, as he has always been a complimentary rusher that has never put up big numbers. This year has seen him breakout. He has put up great sack numbers, and seems to really be coming into his own as a rusher. He is no slouch in run defense, and knows how to set an edge. This situation in Baltimore may come down to a decision between franchise icon, Terrell Suggs or him, which could get dicey. If Smith does get free you may be surprised at the size of the deal he may be able to procure.


48.Adrian Peterson-RB-Redskins

Stats-127 car., 587 yds., 4.6 ypc, 4 TD, 9 rec., 151 yds., 1 TD, 2 FUM Lost.

Age-33

Stock Report-🔺

After looking like he may have to retire due to a neck injury, and a lost season between New Orleans and Arizona. He is rejuvenated, and flashing the rare ability he possesses. He is a bull that runs hard on every play, and has even flashed an improved ability to catch the ball. Running backs over 30 rarely get big paydays, let alone a multiyear deal, but he is a rare specimen. I wouldn’t be surprised to see Washington resign him due to being such a good fit in their offense, and he could be a good mentor for injured Derrius Guice.


49.Chris Long-DE-Eagles

Stats-13 Tackles, 3.0 Sacks, 1 FF.

Age-33

Stock Report-🔺

Long seems to have been in the league forever, the one constant though is him being able to rush the passer. That has continued this year, and has been an valuable rotational pass rusher, which is what he is now. He would wear down greatly if asked to be an every down player at his age. Playoff teams looking for another good pass rusher will definitely look in his direction, but he has made a home in Philadelphia, and may be resigned to offset the loss of Brandon Graham.


50.Jordan Hicks-LB-Eagles

Stats-70 Tackles, 3.0 Sacks, 4 PD.

Age-26

Stock Report-🔺

After experiencing a crushing ruptured Achilles in 2017, he has made a bold statement that he is back to peak performance. He is a run stuffing LB, that shows keen awareness in pass coverage, and puts up great stats when healthy. Linebackers don’t always find big money on the open market, but if Philadelphia lets him walk I believe he will get an above market deal.


51.Steve McLendon-DT-Jets

Stats-18 Tackles, 1 PD.

Age-32

Stock Report-🔻

After breaking into the league with the Steelers as a solid run stuffing UDFA, he parlayed that into a decent deal with the Jets. The last few seasons in New York has seen McLendon develop into a team leader, and a rock in run defense. He is an effective two gapping NT, and at times can show a decent pass rush. This season he is playing quality run defense, but the pass rushing prowess has eroded, which leads to him being a one dimensional player. That makes him a little harder to sell on the open market, and he might be most valuable to the team he is already on.


52.Kareem Jackson-CB/SS-Texans

Stats-47 Tackles, 2 FF, 2 INT, 8 PD.

Age-30

Stock Report-🔺

Another former first round pick on the list who came into the league as a CB, and now this season has been transitioning to more of a SS role. He is a solid tackler, and obviously being a former CB he understands his role as a pass defender. He has been a breakout performer for the Texans this year, and it will be interesting to see if they will make a concerted effort to retain him.


53.Denzel Perryman-LB-Chargers

Stats-47 Tackles, 1 INT, 2 PD.

Age-26

Stock Report-🔺

Perryman has been somewhat hampered by nagging injuries over the life of his time in the NFL, but this year he is healthy and has been producing. He has good speed and agility, as well as an ability to flow to the ball quickly which leads him to being able to be in the right place at the right time. A team searching for an upgrade at their interior linebacker spot would be wise to look into his services.

Well everyone there is my top 53 free agents, and the way I view their stocks for the first half of the season. If you disagree with any of my write ups give me a shout, or comment below.
