ESPN Insider did a story featuring one player from each team who you just can't plan to defend against. They call it the "V-Factor" in honor of Philadelphia Eagles QB Michael Vick, who is the most elusive player in the NFL. These players, whether they play safety like a baseball center-fielder or a tight end who lines up all over the place, to the linebacker who can put his hand in the dirt as well as he can drop into coverage, these are among the most difficult players to game-plan for.
For the Baltimore Ravens, they place that tag on OLB Terrell Suggs. Sizzle is that hybrid-type of player mentioned above, who can settle into a DE stance to rush the passer as well as he can track down a running back on the edge or even drop into the flat to pick off a swing pass and head to the end zone. Of course, there would be no argument from anyone of that "V-Factor" tag went to free safety Ed Reed, or even ILB Ray Lewis. On offense, that same degree of game-planning concerns go to defenses trying to isolate or just slow down all-purpose RB Ray Rice.

V-factors for every NFL team

The Jags are one-dimensional, ranking 31st in pass attempts and third in rushes last year. You'd think that would make it easy for teams to stack the box, but not with this 12-year vet in the middle. His smarts and lane clearing are a big part of why the team tied for sixth in runs with good blocking (53.8 percent).
