Bowman plays alongside Patrick Willis, so he sometimes gets overshadowed. But Bowman never steps off the field and plays every play as if it was his last. He is very athletic and has started to really step out of Willis' shadow. Bowman does an excellent job reading the QB's eyes and breaking on the ball as we saw in the first game against Green Bay when he picked off Aaron Rodgers. He is equally talented with tackling in the open field.
#4. Darren McFadden (RB Oakland)
#3. Matt Schaub (QB Houston)
He is not always the most fundamentally sound QB, but he has the best pocket presence and ability to extend a play. Big Ben's instincts for avoiding defensive linemen gives defensive coordinators nightmares. While in the pocket, he is very good at utilizing the pump fake to move the defensive backs out of position. Aggressive d-backs really struggle with this. Watch how he handles a tough defense like the Jets this weekend.
Leading a young defense, Wilson brings an imposing force to the safety position. Not only can Wilson cover a receiver, but he can tackle like a linebacker. Few safeties are able to bring such an aggressive style to this position. Watch how the Cardinals move him around so the QB can't key on him. He might blitz, drop into a zone or lock up man to man. With that versatility, he is always a fun player to watch.
