Nick Mangold‘s beard alone could be what landed him on this list, but he’s actually playing great football this season. The six-time Pro Bowler has paved the way for Chris Ivory as he has blossomed into one of the NFL’s best running backs. Mangold is the centerpiece to the Jets’ improved offensive line, and his dominance has helped his teammates play even better.
