Who are the best 101 players in the NFL today? Doug Farrar of Touchdown Wire went through the painstaking task of listing them in a recent piece that is more than just a list. Farrar details why these players are ranked where they are ranked and provides video evidence as well.
New York Giants fans are wondering how their players fared. The answer is not very well. Pro Bowl cornerback James Bradberry was the only player on Big Blue’s roster, coming in at No. 57.
2021 Giants training camp preview: Special Teams
The acquisition of James Bradberry by the New York Giants was one of the quieter moves last off-season, but it paid off in a big way for Joe Judge and Dave Gettleman. Bradberry had his best season as a professional, setting career marks with interceptions (three, tying his previous-high set in 2019) and passes defended (14). He also allowed just 44 receptions and a completion percentage of just 56.4%, also career-best numbers.
To be frank, the Giants’ really don’t have a ton of outstanding talent on their roster. At least not top 100 talent. Some might make an argument for running back Saquon Barkley, but he’s three seasons removed from his last healthy, productive season.
Safety Jabrill Peppers is seen by many experts as an underachiever and defensive lineman Leonard Williams is not highly regarded because of the many ‘down’ seasons he had as a Jet. Perhaps this year, after the Giants make their resurgence, some players will get more respect.
Farrar’s top 10 in descending order:
10. Russell Wilson, QB Seattle
9. Quenton Nelson, OL Indianapolis
8. Deshaun Watson, QB Houston
7. Davante Adams, WR Green Bay
6. Jalen Ramsay, CB L.A. Rams
5. Tom Brady, QB Tampa Bay
4. Derrick Henry, RB Tennessee
3. Aaron Donald, IDL L.A. Rams
2. Aaron Rodgers, QB Green Bay
1. Patrick Mahomes, QB Kansas City.
