Scouts Inc. has released a list ranking the top 200 NFL players through ESPN.
Only ESPN insiders will be able to view the entire list, however the top ten is revealed showing a dominant quarterback presence. Five quarterbacks were chosen (Brady, Manning, Rodgers, Brees, Roethlisberger), two wide receivers (Larry Fitzgerald, Andre Johnson). Running back Adrian Peterson, Corner-back Darrelle Revis, and offensive tackle Joe Thomas close out the list.
Aaron Rodgers is ranked number five overall, besting everybody except Brady, Manning, Revis, and Peterson. This is a fair reflection of the kind of talent Aaron Rodgers possesses. There is no denying his place as one of the top five quarterbacks in the league, and therefore must be considered one of the top five players in the league.
