A new generation of NFL stars is rising and the 2019 Pro Bowl roster provides proof of this. In the 88-man squad, 44 players were debutants. Kansas City Chiefs’ quarterback Patrick Mahomes was the highlight and he continues to be a star in the new NFL season. Here is an overview of who would join Mahomes if we created a super team from the current NFL teams.

Quarterbacks

Tom Brady—with eight touchdowns in four games, Brady is in excellent form and ready to chase another super bowl ring this year. And with the Patriots leading AFC East with six wins in six games, Brady has a fair chance at winning another ring.

Some bookies also believe the Patriots will head to Super Bowl LIV in Miami. And although that means the Patriots might not provide the best odds,they are projected to end the season on an impressive winning record.

Patrick Mahomes—the Chiefs have won four games in their first four fixtures and they have Mahomes to thank. The 24-year-old is sizzling hot in the offense having scored 10 touchdowns and rushed for 1,510 yards. According to the NFL, only Brady is better than Mahomes this season.

Matt Ryan—Falcons’ starting quarterback is splendidly good this season despite’s his team’s average performance. He has eight touchdowns and has rushed for 1,325 yards ranking only second to Mahomes for most rushing yards.

Wide Receivers

  1. Allen—LA Chargers’ Keenan Allen has 452 yards and three after four games, making him the best receiver presently. He was still one of the best receivers a year ago and headlined the2019 Pro Bowl in his position.
  2. Kupp—LA Rams’ C Kupp was the second best receiver in the last pro Bowl and continues to play second fiddle to Allen this year. However, he’s impressively good and could end the season as the NFL’s best receiver.
  3. Godwin—he may not have made it to the Pro Bowl, but the Buccaneers’ receiver has stats good enough to place him an NFL super team.
  4. Adams—after registering three wins in four games, the Packers are first in the NFC North. Their star receiver has completed 378 yards but is yet to score a touchdown.

Running Backs

  1. Cook—Vikings Dalvin Cooks has certainly been cooking something good for his team. With five touchdowns in four games, he jointly holds the most TDs by a player in his position so far. He’s rushed for 410 yards, only behind Panthers’ McCaffrey by one yard.

In a super team based on present performance, Cook would be joined by Panthers’ McCaffrey, Jaguars Fournette and Browns’ Nick Chubb for the running back position.

Fullbacks

After an impressive 2018/19 season, Chiefs’ Anthony Sherman is still the NFL’s best fullback.

Defense

To lock our super team, we would have to overlook last season’s performances and pick players based on their current stats.  For line backers, Arizona’s Jordan Hicks would be joined by Packers’ Blake Martinez, Seattle’s Wagner and Panthers’ Luke Kuechly.

If we had to pick one specialist, it would be Rams’ John Johnson who’s had 18 solo tackles and two interceptions. For the defensive end position, Bengals’ Sam Hubbard has the best record with 15 solo tackles and two sacks. He would be joined by Chargers’ Melvin Ingram, Houston’s J.J. Watt and Browns’ Myles Garrett.
