Rams defensive tackle
Donald was named Rams team MVP after finishing the season with 11 sacks – the most of any inside player – 29 quarterback hits, 49 quarterback pressures and 22 tackles for loss. The first-time 101 Award winner also earned a perfect 99.9 rating from Pro Football Focus’ new ranking system, breaking J.J. Watt’s record for the highest grade ever given by PFF in a single season and receiving PFF’s title as the No. 1 player in the NFL regardless of position. Donald concludes his sophomore campaign with his second consecutive trip to the NFL Pro Bowl.
In total, six awards will be presented at a black-tie awards dinner in Kansas City and will be broadcast on NFL Network following the event. The 101 Awards, benefiting the University of Kansas Hospital, will stage its 46th annual awards gala on March 5.
