Aaron Donald, Los Angeles Rams
The 2017 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 o speed and agility work he does with his trainers in the offseason.
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 L.A. Rams fan, you shouldn’t watch that video if you have a weak heart.
