In the last few years, there has been a spike in foreign players making it into the NFL. This proves multiple things. For one, the NFL as a brand, has arrived internationally. Secondly, American football is becoming more and more on par with international sports titan soccer. ESPN has an article by Ryan McGee that dissects the 2013 draft class and the abundance of international talent that was in this class alone.
I for one cannot wait to see how some of these players pan out. Especially the ones that have come in with little to no experience playing American football. These men have such raw talent that gives them the opportunity to explode if they end up with the skill set that coaching staffs will try to develop. The NFL is a great league and now, it is only going to get better with the international talent pool permeating the league.
