Default ESPN's top 200

ESPN is doing a top 100 for both offense and defense...they have posted 100-31 so far.

http://espn.go.com/nfl/story/_/id/94...offense-100-91

Quote:
We polled 63 experts to rate each player on a 0-to-10 scale, with 10 being the best regardless of position in the NFL. Ties, as denoted by an asterisk, were broken by determining which player had more ballots with the highest number. (If players were tied, the player with three 10s was ranked higher than the player with two 10s. If the tied players had the same amount of the highest number -- each with two 10s -- we moved to the next number; three 9s beat two 9s).
OFFENSE

82. Decker
Last year, Decker became the first player in Broncos history with at least 80 receptions and 13 receiving touchdowns in a single season.

35. DT
Thomas had an NFL-best 12 receptions last season on which he gained at least 30 yards. Among players with at least 20 targets on throws outside the numbers and 15-plus yards downfield, Thomas caught 63 percent of balls thrown his way, the best in the NFL.

DEFENSE

NO BRONCOS YET

It will be pretty stupid if Von is the only player on the list, although I think he will be #2 or #3. Eric Berry is the last player posted at #31.

Woodyard and Champ should be in the top 50, along with Von in the top 10.

29. Welker
Over the past five seasons, Welker has a league-leading 420 receptions and 4,716 yards out of the slot. The next most over that same span are 237 receptions (Tony Gonzalez) and 2,766 yards (Marques Colston). His five seasons with 100-plus receptions are the most in NFL history.

Dez Bryant is 28 and PERCY HARVIN IS 26 ROFL

25. Champ
Only Ed Reed and Darren Sharper have more interceptions than Bailey's 52 since he entered the league. Bailey has an NFL-high 171 pass deflections during that span and has made the Pro Bowl in 12 of 14 NFL seasons.

Dumervil is 29.

There's no way Dumervil cracks the top 60 without all the offseason drama.
