Von Miller (Denver Broncos/Linebacker): The importance of Von Miller cannot be correlated simply on his stats but his demeanor and leadership on the defensive side of the ball. Miller is certainly one of the best defenders in the league but absolutely the best defender on the Denver Broncos. I would be surprised to see him get close to free agency because he would receive offers from 31 other teams. Miller has had double digit sacks every season except for his 2013 season where he was hindered by his injuries. Miller recorded 35 combined tackles, 11 sacks, and 4 forced fumbles in 2015.

Josh Norman (Carolina Panthers/Cornerback): Norman has been the best shut down cornerback all season long and will look to make a ton of money at the end of this season. Norman has had an incredible season tallying 4 interceptions, 18 passes defended, 3 forced fumbles and 56 combined sacks. Norman is a huge part of the Panthers defense and they should not let him even test the market.

Cordy Glenn (Buffalo Bills/Left Tackle): Glenn has been a top left tackle his entire career and the Buffalo Bills will absolutely need him to keep Tyrod Taylor protected. It is rare in this league to find a solid left tackle let alone a franchise left tackle, the Bills should get a long term deal done.

Alshon Jeffery (Chicago Bears/Wide Receiver): People assumed that because the Chicago Bears drafted Kevin White that Jeffery would be gone, but have you seen Kevin White play a snap of NFL football? Me neither, because he hasn't and technically 2016 will be his true rookie year. Jeffery should get a middle of the road deal done with the Bears unless he truly wants to find a brand new destination. His production is unmatched in Chicago as he played in only 8 games last season but recorded 807 yards and 4 touchdowns.

Eric Berry (Kansas City Chiefs/Safety): Berry is the heart of this Chiefs secondary and the cancer survivor has shown that he has not lost a step since he returned from treatment. Coming off of cancer Berry played in 15 games which is saying something extrodinary about his physical and mental toughness. He only recorded 2 interceptions but defended 10 passes and had 61 combined tackles. Berry is one of the best free safeties in the league and should stay with the Chiefs for a high price.
