6. Aqib Talib, CB
Talib picked off a pass in the Broncos’ first 2 games of the season and took one to the house, but he’s 2nd in the NFL right now in QB rating against at 32.4.
This is a player that is playing out of his mind right now, and despite giving up some catches to Calvin Johnson on Sunday night, I think Talib is eventually going to be a defensive MVP candidate this season. He’s looking so confident out there, and you could see that at training camp.
This guy is for real.
