Is Julio Jones Nfl's Most Dangerous Player?

In the NFL, there are good players, great players and players that are flat out dangerous. Aaron Rodgers of the Green Bay Packers is a good example of a dangerous player because he has the ability to score at will. Ndamukung Suh is another example as he causes a ton of havoc against offensive linemen, quarterbacks and running backs.

The Falcons have a dangerous player in Julio Jones. He was recently ranked No. 13 on the Top 100 Players of 2015 list, and he is arguably one of the three best receivers in the game.

But is he the most dangerous player in the NFL?

It was a career year for Jones last season. Despite missing one game because of an ankle injury, Jones pulled down 104 receptions for 1,593 yards and six touchdowns. His 104 receptions ranks third on the all-time Falcons single season list, and his 1,593 yards is the most by any Falcons in a season.

The one 2014 game that stood out was Green Bay Packers game as he caught 11 passes for 259 yards and had one touchdown. He almost beat the Packers by himself, and they were a team that were one of the best in the NFC. Also, the Green Bay performance was coming off the heels of the Arizona game where he caught 10 passes for 189 yards and one score.

As good as the 2014 season was for Jones, it was not a surprise because 2013 gave fans a glimpse of what he was capable of.

Jones only played in five games in 2013 because he suffered a foot injury. But in those five games he had receiving yard totals of 76, 182, 115, 108 and 99 yards. He also had reception totals of seven, 11, nine, six and eight. When Jones went down with the injury, he was leading the NFL in receptions and was leading all wide receivers in yards. Jones finished the 2014 season third in receptions, receiving yards and he was second in the league in receiving yards per game (106.2).

Jones has proven that hes a playmaker. Hes fast, has great size and his hands have improved over the years. Hes a mismatch problem for opposing defenders, and if he stays healthy, he will continue to give defenders headaches this season.

But its not just the yards or the catches that Jones has tallied over the last four years that makes him dangerous. Last year, Jones had 76 catches that went for first downs. The only player to have more than him is Antonio Brown of the Pittsburgh Steelers. That shows that hes making plays after the catch, and hes making plays when defenders know hes getting the ball.

When it comes to dangerous players in the NFL, there can be an argument for a number of players including Dez Bryant, Demaryius Thomas, Odell Beckham, Marshawn Lynch, Adrian Peterson and DeMarco Murray. But because Jones means so much to the Falcons offense, and he has only gotten better over the last four seasons, saying that Jones is the most dangerous players in the NFL is not as farfetched as one would think.

The most dangerous thing about Julio is his mentality he plays physical every down wheather running blocking yac he adds physicality to the equation and in the league where the trend is for the longer bigger more physical corner this is what sets him apart from everyone else bar Megatron.

To add to this point, his mentality I mean, he is team first all the way. A team driven super human WR without any of the drama that usually comes with that whatsoever. I think that adds to his danger.

^^^^^^^^^

Agree Tuggle between the lines #11 is a killer nothing gets to him and he never talks his actions do the fact that he uses his size to his advantage is what I like.I feel sorry for small safties and corners he either runs through round or over them.He's just a matchup knightmare throw in the 4.3-4.4 speed game over.

It is no doubt that Julio is one of the most dangerous offensive players in the NFL, I just don’t know how you can accurately quantify something like this.

Quantifying it is easy.

Simply put all you have to do is look at the defensive game planning and if teams slant there defenses towards a certain player well that probably says all you need to no really.

I guess Plaxico doesn't count anymore?

Anybody that shoots his own weewee is pretty darn dangerous, because if he'll do that to himself what do you think he'll do to you?

Hard to judge who the most dangerous player in the league is. Please spare me the stats, I think I have a good idea of how good he is when he's on the field.

Jones pulled down 104 receptions for 1,593 yards

Jones had 76 catches that went for first downs.

Jones finished the 2014 season third in receptions, receiving yards and he was second in the league in receiving yards per game (106.2).

Chris Henry laughs at that amateur stunt.

A dead man isn't dangerous. This isn't Game of Thrones.

Chris Henry no longer has that moving truck.

Plaxico still has guns.

Hence, more dangerous.
