10. Tom Brady, New England Patriots
Tom Brady is known for improving the teammates that surround him on the field. For success this season he must do this with a young group of receivers. The return of Rob Gronkowski should help him too.
9. Matt Ryan, Atlanta Falcons
Matt Ryan has a few challenges on his hands which make his available choices slim. Although Julio Jones is finally fit and ready to go, the departure of Tony Gonzales and the aging of Roddy White makes his job a little harder. With the help of Steven Jackson receiving out of the back field, the Falcons will need some of their younger players to step up to put up big numbers through the air.
8. Cam Newton, Carolina Panthers
Like the two ranked below him, Cam Newton has a young group of unproven receivers as potential targets on the field. You see, what sets Newton apart is his ability to score on the ground and this is something Cam Newton will have to continue to do for his team if the Panthers are to see success this season.
