Top 100 Players of 2023, Nos. 50 - 41: Rookie of the Year and more

The Top 100 Players of 2023 will be reveiled more and more every two days in the month of November. We will be releasing the Top 100 graded players of the season 2023 according to SportsMetrics. The grades reflect the individuals performance on the field.

Omari Williams has arguably the best career of any safety in ELF history and 2023 further backed that case up. The Rhein Fire safety recorded 53 total tackles, seven pass breakups and intercepted four passes of which he returned three for touchdowns. Williams also added 657 return yards to his resume. All in all, the 27-year-old played another great season and was deservingly selected to the All-Pro First-Team.

Poetsch really is one of a kind. The 34-year-old has not only been the best blocking fullback in each of his ELF seasons, but also turned into a redzone threat this year. In 2023, Poetsch caught five passes for 33 yards and three touchdowns, elevating his play to another level and earning him his third First-Team All-Star selection.

Juan Flores-Calderon has been THE Rookie sensation of the 2023 ELF season. The 18-year-old Spaniard lit it up for the Milano Seamen, catching 43 passes for 817 yards and nine touchdowns. Flores-Calderon established himself as one of the best homegrown wide receivers in the league and deservingly won the Rookie of the Year Award.

Enis Kaser has been one of the most underrated players in the European League of Football in 2023. The Munich Raven recorded 70 total tackles, five tackles for loss, and a sack, while also breaking up three passes and intercepting two. 

2023 was another dominant year for Adria Botella Moreno. The 30-year-old tight end set career-highs in all receiving categories, by recording 58 catches for 619 yards and eight touchdowns. Botella Moreno was the Musketeers’ second-most efficient pass catcher and deservingly secured the third All-Star selection of his ELF career.

Luca Jokiel was one of the biggest newcomers of the 2023 season. Before joining the Stuttgart Surge, the massive offensive tackle played for the Heidelberg Hunters in the fourth Division. The 2,04m tall prospect played an amazing season for the Surge, earning him a Second-Team All-Star selection and an invitation to the NFL International Combine.

Matthew Daltrey was the anchor of the Vienna Vikings offensive line in 2023. The 26-year-old British center played another outstanding season for the 2022 champion, earning himself the first All-Star selection of his ELF career.

Raiders wide receiver Philipp Haun had a career-year in 2023. In his second season with the Raiders, Haun caught 48 passes for 766 yards and a team-high nine touchdowns. The 29-year-old was arguably the best Austrian receiver in 2023 and has a lot left in the tank for 2024. 

Nick Wiens showed once again that he is one of the best guards in Europe in 2023. In his second season with Rhein Fire, Wiens dominated opposing defensive linemen, earning himself the second All-Star selection of his ELF career.

After missing the 2022 season due to an injury, Sasan Jelvani put the league on notice in 2023. The defensive standout recorded 63 total tackles and a team-high 10,5 sacks, 16 tackles for loss and two forced fumbles.
