21. Damarious Randall (Freddie’s pick)
It’s rare for a player with just one year of experience in the NFL to earn a spot on this list, but Damarious Randall deserves it. After losing Tramon Williams and Davon House in free agency a year ago, the Packers were thin at cornerback. Randall was selected in the first round with Quinten Rollins taken in the second.
Between them, they not only replaced the production of Williams and House, but had better seasons than the pair. Randall led the Packers with four interceptions (including playoffs) and made some huge plays along the way.
It was his pass breakup on fourth-and-goal that sealed the Packers’ win over the San Diego Chargers in Week 6. Randall gave the Packers a shot at completing a dramatic comeback in Carolina with his interception of Cam Newton in the fourth quarter. His pick-six in Oakland was also key in getting an early advantage.
Randall has star potential and is already one of the best cornerbacks on the team. He had his fair share of rookie mistakes as every young player does, with his biggest being the blown coverage on Larry Fitzgerald’s 75-yard catch-and-run to all but end the Packers’ season. It was a blunder, but Randall was a key reason in getting Green Bay to the divisional round in the first place.
