We continue the AFC South Top 50 with players number 30 through 21.
- The rankings are based mostly on 2018 projection. Production during the 2017 season does matter, but it didn’t hold a gun to my head. And yes, rookies are allowed.
- Value of position wasn’t a huge factor (i.e. a wide receiver can be ranked ahead of a quarterback).
- Injuries were taken into account, but didn’t prevent players from appearing high on the list.
No. 30) Houston Texans LB Benardrick McKinney
Benardrick McKinney is one happy man.
Not only is he a quality NFL linebacker, but just got paid. The new $50 million man earned it with his play last season, where he recorded 95 tackles, three sacks, and earned a grade of nearly 80 from Pro Football Focus.
