Aaron Donald, Los Angeles Rams
The 2018 NFL Defensive Player of the Year isn’t just a product of God-given physical gifts. Rather, Aaron Donald’s incredible burst off the line and speed to wreck offensive plays before they even happen comes from countless hours of speed and agility work he does with his trainers in the off-season.
And to improve his hand fighting technique when engaging with offensive linemen (an under-appreciated art to the common fan), Donald’s trainer DeWayne Brown of Two Tenths Speed and Agility actually had Donald train to protect himself with someone swinging a knife at him. If you’re a LA Rams fan, you shouldn’t watch that video if you have a weak heart.
