NFL 2019 season is just a few days away and it is time to predict the best players in the game. It is not just about their previous performance, the results they can bring in future matches are more important. Kansas City Chiefs and New Orleans Saints are leading the list with 7 players from each team in the top 100 NFL players. The predictions say that Aaron Donald, Patrick Mahomes, Khalil Mack, Tom Brady and DeAndre Hopkins could be the Top 5 Players in NFL 2019 Season.
1. Aaron Donald
Aaron Donald has been named NFL defensive player of the year for two times and there is no stopping him. In the last season with Los Angeles Rams, Donald finished with 20.5 sacks and was just sacks away from the record. Donald will also attend the training camp with the Rams for the first time and it makes him more dangerous.
2019 Projection: 58 tackles, 16.0 sacks
Stat of the Day:
Aaron Donald is the only player in the NFL to get 1st team All-Pro honors in each of the last 4 seasons…
Last year, he led the league in…

2. Patrick Mahomes
Patrick Mahomes created history in 2018 by throwing for 50 touchdown passes and 5,000 yards. He did all this at just the age of 23 years and was named as MVP of the year in NFL 2018 season. With time, Mahomes is said to improve more and the Kansas City Chiefs are predicted as the top team in their league.
2019 Projection: 4,737 passing yards, 35 TDs, 12 INTs
One last item on the Luck retirement! #Chiefs fans take nothing for granted with Patrick Mahomes. Quit worrying about winning multiple Super Bowls, or that he could become the next G.O.A.T. just enjoy the ride for as long as it lasts and celebrate he's our QB today!

He was named as the 2016 Defensive Player of the year and was voted as the Pro Bowler since the last four years. Mack has 49.0 sacks in his career and it makes him the third-best defender of all time. Chicago Bears have big plans with Mack and he has made the team a future title contender.

4. Tom Brady
Tom Brady is one of the best quarterbacks in the history of NFL and his experience with the Patriots is unbelievable. In the 267 games started for the Patriots, Brady has made his team won 207 of them. There are also reports that Brady might retire or change teams as he is more than 40 years old. Despite that Brady was just sacked 3.5 percent of his dropbacks and there is no stopping him.
2019 Projection: 4,424 passing yards, 28 TDs, 11 INTs
