Grady Jarrett – Defensive tackle
Grady Jarrett had his Pro Bowl streak snapped last year when he had a down year for the Atlanta Falcons but he is back to his old self.
He leads the team in sacks (not that it means much) and has been the clear leader for the defense. A defense that has been playing much better over these past weeks. Honestly, the defense is the only reason the Falcons have been competitive over the past few weeks.
He has been the best-run defender and most consistent pass rusher on the team. He helped close out two games this season. He doesn’t have much help around him but continues to play at a high level. It has been the story of his career. He deserves to make his third Pro Bowl.
