Barnwell: The 233 players who could win NFL MVP in 2019

My colleague Louis Riddick tweeted out a prediction last week: Carson Wentz is going to win the Most Valuable Player award in 2019. It's a great pick given what we know about MVP winners. History tells us the ideal pick is an ascending quarterback who hasn't won the award recently, plays for a great team, and is likely to improve in 2019. Wentz fits all those criteria.

Of course, Riddick was ahead of the curve on last year's MVP winner, too. It seemed like an obvious pick by the time the season ended, but this time last year, no one would have put Patrick Mahomes forward as a potential MVP.
