Part of a new campaign the SB Nation NFL blogs will be participating in this 2014 season is answering questions posed by Hall of Fame running back Marshall Faulk. Faulk, who is also an analyst at NFL Network, asked his first question on Twitter on Thursday:

It's actually an interesting question. There wasn't a clear answer in my mind so I used one of my lifelines and asked the audience (see: Twitter). The most popular responses were: left tackle Jason Peters, left guard Evan Mathis, center Jason Kelce, running back LeSean McCoy, defensive end Cedric Thornton, and tight end Brent Celek.

The Eagles' specialists were also named quite often. Far from the most heralded players and often overlooked, punter Donnie Jones and Jon Dorenbos earn a living by being mistake-free. Consistency is expected when it comes to their jobs and anything less is deemed significant failure. For this (harsh) reason, I'm going to leave the specialists out of consideration. Sorry, guys.

Looking ahead to the 2014 NFL season, I'm going to say it's McCoy who will be consistently great. He's coming off a career year, he's in "the best shape of his life", he's going to get a lot of touches, he has aspirations of reaching 2,000 yards, and he's still only 26.

I think Faulk would agree with my pick considering he boldly predicted McCoy will reach both 1,000+ yards rushing and 1,000+ yards receiving in 2014.

Shady is my pick. How about you?
