NFL London 2012 key Players
Since the first International Series game in 2007, fans in London have been privileged to see some of the best players in the history of the NFL grace the Wembley pitch.
Three Super Bowl winning Quarterbacks in Eli Manning (two rings), Drew Brees (one ring) and Tom Brady (three rings) have all played in the International Series and are all bound for the NFL's Hall of Fame in the future, Brady will once again return to Wembley in 2012.
In 2010, fans caught a glimpse of Tim Tebow, the then Quarterback of the Denver Broncos, during his Rookie season, a player that is arguably the most decorated player in College Football history.
The players to look out for in the 2012 International Series game between the St Louis Rams and New England Patriots include:
The New England Quarterback is a guaranteed future member of the NFL's Hall of Fame. Since making his first appearance during the 2000 season, Brady has gone on to have an illustrious career, winner three Super Bowl rings, appearing in fiver Super Bowls (an NFL record) and with coach, Bill Belichick, the two have set the record for being the most successful Coach/QB partnership in the NFL. Winning 124 games and 16 post season games to the end of the 2011 season.
Brady is an archetypal "pocket passer" Quarterback, using his feet, fast reactions and unbelievable ability to read down field to make quick plays, resulting in large passing yards and plenty of touchdown passes.
Always armed with an array of receiving weapons, New Englan's offense is built around Tom Brady's skills and explosive plays are usually assured in any game that he plays in.
In Just two seasons playing in the NFL, Rob Gronkowski, Tight End for the New England Patriots has become one of the most explosive playmakers in the league. In 2011, he amassed 1,327 receiving yards, ranking him sixth in the league, amongst some of the best Wide Recievers and scored a total of 17 Touchdowns, which was the most of any player in the entire NFL.
With Brady providng the passes, more of the same can be expected from Gronkowski in 2012 and fans at Wembley should be in for a treat come 28th October.
Sam Bradford was the first pick of the 2010 NFL Draft following a record breaking College career at Oklahoma.
In his first two years "under center" for the Rams, Bradford has proved he is a more than capable pro Quarterback with a bright future ahead of him. Whilst he has not been spoilt for weapons to pass the ball to in the NFL, he has the ability to make plays and put up points.
If the Rams receivers can hit the 2012 season running, then fans at Wembley could be for a treat if Bradford goes head-to-head with Brady in a game that has the makings of a potential "shoot out".
Rams Running Back, Steven Jackson, has established himself as one of the league's best player in the postion since being a first round draft pick in 2004.
Jackson has rushed for over 1,000 yards in each of the past seven seasons and had scored 52 touchdowns to the end of the 2011 season.
A great player to watch and a huge threat to any opponents Defense, Jackson is sure to be a crowd pleaser at Wembley.
