2. Julio Jones: Considered one of the best wide receivers in the league, Jones was drafted sixth overall by the Atlanta Falcons in the 2011 NFL draft. Through 79 career games, he has 7,610 receiving yards and 40 touchdowns. In 2015, he led the league in both receptions (136) and receiving yards (1,871).

3. Dont’a Hightower: A five-year pro, Hightower is an elite linebacker who has accumulated 231 tackles, 17 sacks, and two forced fumbles throughout his career. He recently signed a four-year, $43.5 million extension with the New England Patriots.
