Since everyone in America has spent the last few weeks memorizing various fantasy football rankings, ESPN decided to create a REAL LIFE ranking.

They got more than 70 NFL analysts, reporters, and statisticians from ESPN and other places to rank the players.  And not just the offensive guys who count in fantasy football.   Then they crunched all the votes, and came up with a ranking of ‘The Top 100 Players in the NFL.’ 

Here’s the Top 20:

 

1.  Houston Texans defensive end J.J. Watt

 

2.  Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers

 

3.  New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady

 

4.  Miami Dolphins defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh

 

5.  New England Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski

 

6.  A TIE between Dallas Cowboys wide receiver Dez Bryant, and Detroit Lions wide receiver Calvin Johnson

 

8.  Seattle Seahawks cornerback Richard Sherman

 

9.   New York Jets cornerback Darrelle Revis

 

10.  Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver Antonio Brown

 

11.  Minnesota Vikings running back Adrian Peterson

 

12.  Indianapolis Colts quarterback Andrew Luck

 

13.  Carolina Panthers linebacker Luke Kuechly

 

14.  Seattle Seahawks running back Marshawn Lynch

 

15.  Seattle Seahawks safety Earl Thomas

 

16.  Kansas City Chiefs linebacker Justin Houston

 

17.  Cleveland Browns offensive tackle Joe Thomas
