In my opinion :
Penetration Strength counter Tackle
Juke counter Anti juke
Toughness counter Strength
Carry counter Hit Power
Pass and Kick stat are situationnal (K, QB, C)
Reception and Kick reception stat are also situationnal (WR, KR, CB and maybe RB)
Stamina is essential for every role
Blocking is good on OL, DL (depends on the defensive formation you use), CB (to stick with the WR), LB
Speed is good on RB, WR mostly (helps them create distance with the defense guy that mark them).
I might be wrong on some point, but that is what i came up with.
