Top Five NFL Players with the Best Hair: A Female’s Perspective

Ladies, when you watch the NFL games, are you watching strictly for the game, or are you looking at the players as well? If you want to know who has the best hair in the NFL, you've come to the right spot because I have created a top five list. We will begin with No. 5 and end with the football player with the best hair at No. 1.

#5 Jacquizz Rodgers

Jacquizz Rodgers is a running back for the Atlanta Falcons, and he starts our search for the best hair at No. 5. He recently made my list in a previous article for the top five NFL players who wear earrings. You can view a picture of Rodgers' hair and earrings to find out why he made the top five in two articles rather than one.

#4 Bernard Scott

At No. 4 is Bernard Scott, a running back for the Cincinnati Bengals. You can view Scott's hair on the official website of the Bengals. The site also offers an interview of Bernard in the locker room, so you can get a chance to know him a little better and see his hair on video.

#3 Brandon Banks

Brandon Banks is a wide receiver for the Washington Redskins. Check out this great picture of Banks' shoulder length hair to see why he is at No. 3.

In February of 2011, Banks and his friend were both stabbed during an argument. Thankfully both victims recovered from the stabbing, and Banks is back playing football with his long locks.

#2 Jesse Holley

Jesse Holley is a long haired wide receiver for the Dallas Cowboys and No. 2 in our countdown. You can view several pictures of Holley on his Facebook page. If you look at the photos under his name, you will get to watch as his hair goes from long to longer.

#1 Dan Carpenter

At No. 1 is Dan Carpenter, who is a kicker for the Miami Dolphins. The Helena Independent Record has a story showcasing a gorgeous photo of Carpenter and his hair. Ladies, according to Dan and Kaela's blog, he is off the market since him and Kaela Clawson announced they will be tying the knot. It appears they got married on July 2, 2011.

We've counted from No. 5 to No. 1. Would you have chose Dan Carpenter as the No. 1 NFL player with the best hair? If not, who would you have picked?
