All these big bucks getting thrown around to WRs here in the off season got me thinking. Who are in your opinion the best players at there positions. Lets start with offense, and if it goes well we can go to def.

In Order....

QB:Aaron Rodgers... (Big Gap).....Tom Brady-Drew Brees-Eli Manning-Matthew Stafford-Phillip Rivers-Big Ben-Matt Ryan-Cam Newton- Tony Romo

RB: Arian Foster-Adrian Peterson-Chris Johnson-Ray Rice-Steven Jackson-MJD- Michael Turner-Lesean Mccoy-Marshawn Lynch-Deangelo Williams

WR: Larry Fitzgerald-Calvin Johnson....(Massive Gap).....Andre Johnson-Roddy White-Brandon Marshall-Mike Wallace-Hakeem Nicks- Dwayne Bowe-Greg Jennings-Miles Austin

I noticed I didnt put any of the top$ making WR this year in FA on that list. Funny how that works...

QB: Aaron Rodgers ... (tiny gap) ... Tom Brady-Drew Brees ... (gap) ... Eli Manning-Phillip Rivers-Matt Schaub-Ben Rothlesberger ... (gap) ... Tony Romo-Matthew Stafford-Matt Ryan ... (tiny gap) ... Jay cutler.

I would place Peyton Manning right now with Eli, Phillip, Matt and Ben until I see his first game.

I may have missed someone that belongs above the "fall of the table gap" and I was tempted to stop at Darren McFadden.

IMO Andre Johnson is the most overrated WR in the league.

I don't know why Cutler gets thrown in the Matt Ryan/Joe Flacco category. He carries his team. The Bears had nobody to throw to, and the worst Oline in the league, yet he still had them at what, 7-2 before he got hurt? He goes down and their defense just about scores more points than the offense.

I don't know that they're the best backs in the league, but MJD, Marshawn Lynch, and Frank Gore are my favorite backs in the league. I like workhorses that run low and keep their feet moving. If you ask me Arian Foster is the beneficiary of the best Oline in the league, and a really scumbaggish cut blocking scheme.

For WR it's Calvin Johnson and Larry Fitzgerald. But man did Detroit break the bank for that guy.

Your list is close to what I have. Just switch Calvin and Fitz. Also replace Cam with Stafford.

    • I just watched the only tape available on Strachan online - vs West Virginia State. To be fair this seems like it was his worst game of the season, but he didn't impress me much. The CBs that cover him seem tiny and he cannot beat their press-man off the LOS. He gets jammed and his routes interrupted by physically playing defenders. There are several cases where he beats press-man, but it's mostly because of his superior athleticism rather than skill. He is a willing and physical blocker. Runs very limited route tree(mostly go routes and slants). He had some success on the move when he could release uninterrupted and the defender didn't have a chance to put his hands on him, but overall I would say he seems like a serious project.  Right now I cannot see him getting on an NFL roster. IMO it's very likely Ballard will try to sneak him on the practice squad unless he takes a big stept this off-season.     From his highlights tape - he seems pretty athletic against that competition. He does outrun defenders. He has good ballskils - tracks the ball well, catches it securely outside his frame, fights for it and attacks it in the air. You can see the appeal. I just am not sure he will ever be able to beat press-man and get open against NFL level defenders. People above compared him to DK Metcalf but Metcalf is a monster against press-man. He doesn't let defenders put a hand on him... he just overwhelms them with physicality and when they don't try to jam him, he is fast enough to outrun them.    My prediction for him is PS in 2021. 
    • Colts and Vikings family mothers.   @Nadine @NFLfan @DEColtsLover36 @Wentzszn     I know there are more, hope you have a great day, come claim your flowers.  
    • They are trying on the LT spot   I think CB gets the problem   I highly doubt that Tevi is considered the answer
    • I watched an interview of Strachan completed before the draft, posted on youtube last week and he claimed that he has run the 40 in high 4.3's and that the pro day 40 was slow for him.      He was an adult playing against 10 years old on the field.  He has a measured 85 inch wingspan   He is a cocky  confident guy....... comparing himself to Megatron and expecting that he would be picked in the first few rounds   Patmon has been working hard this offseason, and has some speed that Pascal doesnt have   I hope that Strachan puts in the work, we will have some nice competition at the WR spot   I want to see what they look like in pre season    
    • For whatever it's worth Strachan looks like a major project to me. I can see Ballard trying to sneak him on the practice squad.
