Nick Wright's Super Bowl LV Most Important Player Pyramid
Originally, Nick Wright planned to rank all 105 playmakers facing off in Super Bowl LV.
However, that would be one large pyramid, so instead, Wright settled on a seven-tiered list featuring 28 players, ranked from most important on the top to least on the bottom.
Let's see who made the cut.
Nick's take: "Those are offensive — I don't want to say role players, but offensive guys that I don't think either team is leaning on. They don't have to have a huge game – but would love them to."
Nick's take: "The same thing, but on the defensive side of the ball – very good defensive players. Role defensive players. Good defensive players."
Nick's take: "Guys that could make monster-splash plays. I'm looking at you Gronk. I'm looking at you, Sammy Watkins ... That is a kicker in there, Harrison Butker, but not for good reasons."
Nick's take: "If Shaq Barrett and Mike Evans have big games, the Bucs can win. If Chris Jones and Tyrann Mathieu have big games, the Chiefs can blow the Bucs out."
Nick's take: "All three of these guys will make an impact, potentially game-changing plays. JPP coming off the edge, Hill getting loose deep, Kelce coming over the middle repeatedly."
Nick's take: "Obviously, Tom Brady is one of the most important people in this game. You might say, 'Who the hell is that next to Tom Brady?' That is Mike Remmers – he is now the Chiefs' starting left tackle ... because he is replacing Eric Fisher."
Member: Chiefs QB Patrick Mahomes
Nick's take: "And then, obviously, the most important player in the game, Patrick Mahomes."
