With the top 10 of the NFL Top 100 scheduled to be released on Monday, it will be interesting to see if Los Angeles Rams stars Aaron Donald or Todd Gurley end up in the top spot.
After a few members of the Los Angeles Rams such as Ndamukong Suh and Jared Goff already earned spots on the NFL Top 100 list for the upcoming season, all eyes will be on the reveal for the top 10 on Monday to see where Aaron Donald and Todd Gurley end up.
In fact, the argument can be made that either one of these Rams stars could end up in the No. 1 spot, which would simply be awesome.
Over the years, Donald and Gurley have earned respect as two of the top players in the NFL, but playing on a struggling team like Los Angeles sort of hurt them in a way to live up to their true potential.
Now, that is anything but the case after the Rams turned out to be one of the biggest surprises from last season after earning a trip to the playoffs by winning the NFC West title.
Without question, the argument can be made that Los Angeles never would have seen this kind of success if it wasn’t for Donald and Gurley, as there’s no question both players will be key once again in 2018.
While Donald continues to prove himself as one of the league’s best defensive players after another strong 2017 campaign in which he recorded 11 sacks and five forced fumbles in 14 games, Gurley actually finished second in the MVP voting to Tom Brady.
One year after failing to record a single 100-yard rushing game, Gurley was considered one of the players that benefitted the most from Sean McVay‘s new system after recording 2,093 yards from the line of scrimmage to go along with 19 touchdowns.
So in case anyone needed a reminder as to why the Rams were able to finish with the third best record in the NFC last season, the production from these two speaks for itself.
As cool as it would be to see one of these two players for the Rams end up in the top spot on the NFL Top 100, Los Angeles and their fans will be proud of their two stars either way. At the end of the day, what matters the most is Donald and Gurley pick up where they left off in 2017 by continuing to be absolute nightmares for opponents to give the Rams a better chance of living up to the Super Bowl hype.
