With Week 2 of the NFL preseason in the books, it's time to take stock of the league's most buzz-worthy players heading into Week 3.
The players on this list were chosen because they're among the most talked about in the league. Some are embroiled in position battles, while others are looking to bounce back in a major way. And one notable defender is trying to crack his team's 53-man roster.
Quarterbacks (of course) dominate this list, with six of the 10 players being passers. We'll examine the fortunes of three rookie signal-callers along with three NFC East veterans who are seeking to return to form.
In addition, we'll discuss three rookie defenders who sparkled in Week 2 and determine whether the Atlanta Falcons can count on their greenhorn left tackle to keep their franchise quarterback upright.
Once we've analyzed each individual situation, we'll assign either a "Stock: UP" or "Stock: DOWN" verdict for their performance. Easy enough, right?
Here is the NFL preseason player stock watch heading into Week 3.
