List Rules Vote up the football players you think are the coolest on AND off the field - consider factors like style, personality, confidence, and swagger.

The coolest players in the NFL currently are not necessarily the biggest stars. Many of these players could be considered among the best quarterbacks or the best wide receivers in football right now, but more important to their coolness factor is their off-field image.

Players like Cam Newton and Odell Beckham Jr. have proved themselves on the field, but they have been huge personalities away from the game, with major social media followings, television spots, and other media appearances. Rob Gronkowski, Aaron Rodgers, and other players like them have crossed over in their appeal from just football fans to the culture at large.

But who is the coolest football player right now? Who has a swagger and the confidence that can't be denied? Vote below for the NFL players who define cool. Then head over and vote on the coolest NBA players in the game right now, the guys who could challenge these players in the cool department.
