Westbrook has matured into one of the league's most explosive weapons. He led the NFL in yards from scrimmage a season ago, and has amassed the second-most yards from scrimmage in the league since becoming a full-time starter in 2004.

The two-time Pro Bowl passer is one of the league's shortest quarterbacks, but his production as a starter has been gargantuan. His 440 completions last season set a single-season record, and he is off to another scintillating start this season with three 300-yard passing games in the first month.

The electrifying return specialist has emerged as one of the league's top big-play threats in his fourth season. Sproles is averaging over 30 yards per kick return and has a 103-yard touchdown to his credit.

The former undrafted free agent has developed into one of the game's most productive players. He led the league in receptions (112) a season ago.

The three-time Pro Bowl wideout entered the league as a top flight returner, but he has developed into one of the best receivers in the game. In 2005 he became only the third receiver in history to win the Triple Crown (receptions, receiving yards and touchdown receptions). He has topped the 1,000-yard mark in four of the past five seasons.

The 2007 Defensive Player of the Year only stands 5-8, but few can match his impact as one of the league's best defenders. A ferocious hitter with outstanding ball skills, Sanders has earned two Pro Bowl nominations.

The pint-sized playmaker has been an outstanding multi-purpose threat since entering the league in 2006. Jones-Drew has averaged over five yards per carry and has over 24 rushing touchdowns in two-plus seasons.

The ultra-productive linebacker has tallied over 100 tackles in nine consecutive seasons. Although he is undersized by pro standards, Fletcher has been a dominant player in a big man's game.

Dunn is one of only 23 running backs in history to rush for over 10,000 yards in his career. He has 28 100-yard rushing games in his career.
