Ranking the 5 Most Popular NFL Players on Instagram Right Now



What do you get when you mix America’s favorite sport, football, and one of America’s favorite leisure and entertainment social media platforms together? Well of course, you get some of the top NFL players becoming Instagram sensations and social media superstars.

Even specialty sporting websites that allow people to bet on NFL games and action usually hold polls and contests to try and determine which NFL stars hold the biggest fan bases around. Then again, it’s only fitting that some of the world’s most popular sporting stars would also have a massive fan following for their everyday lives, not just what they can do on the gridiron field. 

But who are the most popular NFL players on Instagram right now and what makes them oh so popular? Let’s take a look.

Odell Beckham Jr, Cleveland Browns

If there was ever an athlete that can make plays day in and day out that could end up being in pictures that could very well break the internet, it’s none other than our first star on the list, Cleveland Browns wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr.. Beckham Jr, a Baton Rouge, Louisiana native holds a massive following of 14,4 million followers with a profile that puts on display everything from his training regimes, in-game action to an insider’s look into the lavish lifestyle that one of the best receivers in the game lives on a daily basis.

If you ever have any doubt about just how popular OBJ can be and just how much of an impact he can have on social media, just remember his pictures and videos of his one-handed catch against the Dallas Cowboys while playing for the New York Giants. Everyone has seen images or videos of that catch at least once, trust me, they have.

Tom Brady, Tampa Bay Buccaneers

For our third pick in the list we’re going to the northwest in order to find one of the NFL’s most liked players, Seahawks QB, Russell Wilson. Wilson is a football living legend in the city of Seattle and has managed to garner up a following of over 5 million fans on Instagram. While this football and baseball star is known for his in-game skills and mind-blowing plays, on social media Wilson shows off a more laid back side of him, focusing a lot on family and leisurely activities.

Oh yeah, it also doesn’t hurt one bit for Wilson that he is married and has a family with the always loved singer Ciara. Just know, if there’s ever a “1, 2 Step” video on IG with Wilson and Ciara getting down, get ready for the Internet to break.

Cam Newton, New England Patriots

If there was ever a player that has become a polarizing image for what looking good and sharp in the NFL looks like, it would definitely have to be Patriots QB Cam Newton. Ever since making his debut in the league for the Carolina Panthers Newton has been a perennial favorite for football fans all around because of his electric personality, great charitable efforts in his community and an all-around good person vibe.

With a following of 4,8 million fans on IG, Newton continues to dazzle his followers with stunning photos of his day to day fashion, in game snaps and just general feel good material. Newton’s smile and persona is perfect for social media and his followers could not agree more.

Patrick Mahomes II, Kansas City Chiefs

Patrick Mahomes of the Kansas City Chiefs should be taken into examination week in and week out of the NFL season just so that doctors, experts and even probably scientists can examine and try to figure out how he can be as good as he is while playing football. This man is like a video-game highlight reel in real life and it’s one of the main reasons his popularity has skyrocketed ever since entering the league.

His IG game is strong, with a solid 4,5 million fans following him as he gives fans daily glimpses into what life is like for one of the most popular players in the NFL right now. Given that he is still very young in the league, meaning that he basically has his whole career to go in the pros, it shouldn’t be surprising if he ends up becoming one of the most popular or the most popular NFL star on social media sooner rather than later.

Instagram Is Rolling Out Reels Replies, And Will Be Testing A New Feature Which Informs …





Instagram has added a few more social features to the platform, with Reels Replies being rolled out. Along with the Replies, anew feature is being tested that shows when two users are active together in the same chat.

Reels has been performing much better than perhaps even Instagram ever anticipated. The TikTok-inspired new video format (which officially claims to have absolutely no relation to the former) had some trouble really finding its footing initially. However, Reels has grown massively and while it may not be a source of the most direct competition to TikTok, it is indeed a worthy alternative.

Reels has grown to the point that it has a massive creator program attached to it, and the video format has even been migrated to Facebook with the goal of generating further user interest there. Naturally, with such a successful virtual goldmine on its hands, Instagram has been hard at work developing new features and interface updates for Reels, integrating it more and more seamlessly into the rest of the social media platform. Features such as Reels Replies are a major part of such attempts at integration.

Reels Visual Replies are essentially just what they sound like: A Reel that is being used to reply to someone. It’s a feature that’s been seen frequently across TikTok as well. Reel Replies essentially take a user’s comments, and reply to them in video format. The comment will then show up within the Reel itself as a text-box, taking up some amount of space, and showing both the user who issued said comment along with the text. The text-box is apparently adjustable, with users having the ability to move it around and change its size depending on where it obstructs one’s Reel the least.

Overall, it’s a fun addition to the Reels format, even if the credit should be going to TikTok first. At any rate, it’s an example of Instagram really utilizing Reels’ social media capabilities, outside of just serving it up as a form of entertainment.

Speaking of social media capabilities, a new feature might help alleviate one of the most common frustrations encountered across all such platforms. Isn’t it annoying when you see that a friend’s online, but isn’t replying to your chat? Sure, they’ve probably just put their phone down to run a quick errand, but there’s no way for you to know, right? Well, there sort of is now! Instagram is beta testing a new feature via which if both users are active within a chat, the platform will display that accordingly. It’s a work-around, sure, and one that’s currently being tested for usefulness, but it’s still a very nice, and even fresh, addition to the social media game.

Now, the active status will only appear when you are both active at the same time.#Instagram #instgramnewfeature@MattNavarra @instagram @alex193a
