See if they made the list!!
Detroit Lions Appeal: 71%
A defensive lineman No. 1? Apparently a unique name and an ability to manhandle offensive lines, all for a team gaining national traction for its turnaround, go a long way.
Green Bay Packers Appeal: 67%
Fans like the way Rodgers smoothly stepped in and excelled after taking over for the polarizing Brett Favre in 2008.
Pittsburgh Steelers Appeal: 64%
High energy player on a popular team, and of course everyone loves the hair.
New Orleans Saints Appeal: 63%
Leading New Orleans to a post-Katrina Super Bowl title two years ago was a great story. Fans also see Brees as professional and modest.
Green Bay Packers Appeal: 62%
Longtime star defensive back sees his fortunes rise along with the Pack’s.
Minnesota Vikings Appeal: 62%
The man they call “All Day” for his tireless rushing and receiving workload every Sunday just re-upped with Minnesota for seven years and a possible $100 million. With over 6,000 yards in four-plus seasons, some think Peterson has the goods to challenge Emmitt Smith’s all time rushing mark of 18,355.
St. Louis Rams Appeal: 62%
The former Oklahoma Sooners QB, drafted first overall in 2010 (one spot ahead of Suh), helped improve the Rams to 7-9 from 1-15 the previous year. He and the club are off to a tougher start this year, though.
Chicago Bears Appeal: 57%
Who doesn’t love a tough linebacker playing for the Chicago Bears? Urlacher is practically the definition of football.
New York Jets Appeal: 56%
A longtime star in San Diego, Tomlinson has gained popularity in New York as a steadying part-time veteran on a generally younger, brash team.
