The Most Likable NFL Players In 2022

List Rules
Vote up the players it's impossible to hate.

Are you ready for some (very nice) football! Even though football is a gritty game of tough competitors, the sport is filled with the kind of likable players fans love to have on their teams. 

Players can come off as likable for a litany of reasons: maybe they're on your favorite team, they can do a lot of good off the field with charity work, perhaps they have a goofy personality that keeps you following them on social media, or they may even be killing it on your fantasy team this year. Whatever the reason may be, these likable NFL players have all left their mark in the hearts of football fans everywhere.

Players like Patrick Mahomes and Saquon Barkley are young stars in the league, but they're humble and gracious, always making time for fans, in particular young fans and kids. J.J. Watt is one of th fiercest competitors in the league, but he was also named Walter Payton Man of the Year for his charity and volunteer work.

So while these players are all warriors on the field, they are also some of the nicest NFL players off the field. So vote for the most likable gridiron monsters, and feel free to add any players you don't see who you think belong on the list.
