Sometimes a player with the most heart has the Professional Grade resilience that can will a team to victory, no matter the circumstances. Which player leaves everything on the field?
What about Jeremy Hill? The second-round rookie had a slow start on the season but he's eating yardage alive. In his past seven games, Hill has generated 756 yards from scrimmage with five rushing touchdowns. Hill, who won the AFC Offensive Player of the Week and FedEx Ground Player of the Week, leads all NFL rookies in yards rushing (877) and is tied for first with eight rushing touchdowns.
Another good nomination is linebacker Vincent Rey, who continues to battle for playing time and has steadied himself as the team's first linebacker off the bench (for the most part). He worked as Rey Maualuga's backup last season and played significant playing time. Rey currently leads the team with 103 tackles this season.
Kevin Zeitler and George Iloka are good candidates. Who is yours?
