Default ProFootballFocus: Top 101 Players Of 2012

101 to 91

Now some things are pretty important in understanding the criteria for the list;

- This is based solely on 2012 play. Nothing that happened in years previous was accounted for.

- This is created with an “all-positions created equal” mantra, so it asks for a leap of faith that you assume a guard is an important as a quarterback (there are some exceptions here with more situational roles not quite as equal).

(Last year’s ranking in brackets)

98. Champ Bailey, CB, Denver Broncos (80th)

So the playoffs didn’t really go well for Bailey who struggled to stop Torrey Smith getting in behind him. Yet one game, however important it is, doesn’t undo a season’s worth of good work. Bailey was still up to the task of matching up with a team’s top receiver, and he only allowed 40 regular season receptions, including just one touchdown. A fine year with a horrid end.

Best Performance: Week 15 at Baltimore, +4.3

Key Stat: Just 4.27 percent of his coverage snaps ended with him giving up a first down or touchdown. That is the sixth-lowest of all cornerbacks for 2012.

The rest of 101 to 91
