Even though we aren’t very far into the NFL preseason football, there have already been some exceptional individual performances. Some of these players, both young and old are stepping up their games in a hurry in anticipation of the start of the regular season. And some are doing it in a desperate attempt to either gain prominence or return to it.
In most cases, the stars of preseason are lesser known veterans, or youngsters trying to make their marks. Most of the established veterans don’t see enough reps in preseason to make a splash. So, when we are talking about ranking the top performances of the week, look for an eclectic mix of youth and experience.
Let’s rank 10 of the top standout performances of the week, and keep an eye on these players going forward. This list is far from comprehensive, but these are the 10 guys I've studied so far that have really stood out.
