Quarterback: Dak Prescott

Drew Brees is the better player right now, but his team and coach want him back. Tom Brady has limited options. Dak is young and looked like an MVP at some points last season. Just 26, Dak threw for 4,900 yards and 30 touchdowns this season.

Running Back: Derrick Henry

He's taken his final form as the guy who dominated high school, college, and now the NFL. He led the NFL in carries, rushing yards and rushing touchdowns this season and is currently carrying the Titans to the AFC Championship Game.

Fullback: Anthony Sherman

Sherman had four carries and two receptions for one of the top offenses in the NFL this season. Like your team is looking for a fullback anyway.

Wide Receivers: A.J. Green, Amari Cooper

A.J. Green be 32 this summer, but he still averaged 15.1 yards per catch and scored 6 touchdowns in 2018, and had a full year off in 2019 as he struggled through a foot injury. Could Joe Burrow be enough to entice him to stay.

Amari Cooper had career highs in yards, touchdowns and yards per target last season. He turns 26 this summer.

Tight End: Austin Hooper

Hooper had 75 catches for 787 yards and 6 touchdowns this season. He scored a touchdown in the Super Bowl a few years back, so you know he's clutch.

Interior Offensive Line: Joe Thuney, Graham Glasgow, Conor McGovern

Joe Thuney is a two-time Super Bowl champion who has never missed a game.

Graham Glasgow started 47 of the last 48 games for the Lions. He can play guard or center.

Conor McGovern has played in 31 of the Broncos last 32 games, with starts at center and guard.

Offensive Tackles: Anthony Castonzo, Jack Conklin

Anthony Castonzo missed five games this season, but played all 16 in 2017 and 2018.

Jack Conklin started all 16 games for the Titans this season and helped protect Ryan Tannehill during his big comeback, as well as paved the way for Derrick Henry.

Defensive Ends: Jadeveon Clowney, Dante Fowler

Jadeveon Clowney now comes with some baggage following the Carson Wentz hit, but isn't that what teams are looking for in their defensive linemen?

Dante Fowler lived in the offensive backfield this season with 11.5 sacks and 16 tackles for loss.

Interior Defensive Linemen: Chris Jones, D.J. Reader

Chris Jones had a down season with just nine sacks, but made the Pro Bowl.

D.J. Reader is just a monster in the middle of the line who had career highs in tackles, sacks and QB hits.

Shaquil Barrett tallied an NFL-high 19.5 sacks this season.

Justin Simmons had 16 passes defensed this season to go with four picks and 93 tackles.

Kicker: Mason Crosby

At 35, Crosby is still in the prime of his kicking career. He made 22 of 24 field goal attempts this season.

Punter: Lachlan Edwards

Four years with the Jets would make any punter experienced. Edwards led the NFL with 87 punts and 3,991 yards this season.
