The NFL has many high-profile players, and everyone in the league is obviously a terrific athlete compared to the rest of us. But some players stand out as especially dominant.
Just what does dominant mean? It doesn't just mean being a great player, though that is certainly a factor. In fact, being a great player is probably the biggest factor in defining the NFL's 25 most dominant players.
The word dominant is key, however. It may sound a bit obvious, but this means that a player is capable of taking over, that he is nearly impossible to stop. That he dominates.
This isn't based on just 2012 results. Of course, recent dominance is preferred, but the player is more important than the results. This is a projection.
Some names on this list will be no surprise. Obviously, Calvin Johnson will make an appearance toward the top. Some names, however, might not be so clear.
