Spin-off of the NBA version and pathetic list from NFL Network.

With the downtime and season not too far off, thought it might be interesting to see forum's ranking of top players heading into next yr and what discussion comes from it. Might also be harder to do. I'm not sure how far I'll go with it. But I will pull the plug if it don't go over so well. Vote realistically.

Votes for #10
DeMarcus Ware 6
Rob Gronkowski 2
Peyton Manning 1
Jason Pierre Paul 1
Larry Fitzgerald 1
Charles Woodson 1

Top Players in NFL for 2012
#1. QB Aaron Rodgers
#2. QB Tom Brady
#3. QB Drew Brees
#4. WR Calvin Johnson
#5. ILB Patrick Willis
#6. CB Darrelle Revis
#7. DL Haloti Ngata
#8. RB Arian Foster
#9. DL Justin Smith
#10 OLB/DE DeMarcus Ware

Peyton Manning, do the right thing guys.
People have to see it to believe it to vote him this soon. No one's convinced about the injury, or if he can return to good level and Broncos weapons I assume.

Larry Fitzgerald.

I don't know if I will vote for Peyton Manning at all, we literally have no idea what he's going to look like.

Seeing as how nobody will vote for Peyton, I'll change my vote to Larry Fitzgerald.

The position is changing. Most of the elite TE's today are more of a hybrid, and can be just as explosive as WR's with match-up problems. I know that Graham scares me a hell of a lot more than any of the junk Brees has at WR.

Larry Fitzgerald

I'm willing to buy a player like Gronkowski in the top 20, but can't in principle rank a guy who is excellent at exploiting bad matchups ahead of a guy that is excellent at exploiting good matchups.

Take Larry Fitzgerald, add 2 inches and 40 pounds, and have him run block when he's not catching the ball. That's Gronk.

This. Even though I agree that Gronks run blocking sets him apart from say Jimmy Graham or most of the other elite TE's. He'll get his soon

JPP. As much as Gronk and Fitz are freaks on offense, Paul is the same on defense.

Steven Jackson. Only offensive weapon on the Rams, and everybody knows it.
