Patriots lead way in Scouts Inc. Top 200
Scouts Inc. has evaluated more than 2,500 players and on Tuesday unveiled its Top 200 rankings for the year .
You can view the entire list, see how players compare around the NFL and sort them by position if you have an ESPN Insider subscription. Insiders also can check out the ratings for every player on a given roster by visiting a team page and clicking on the "Scouting" tab.
I've been given special dispensation by the Bristol High Court of Data Dissemination to share with you AFC East players in the top 200.
All things being equal, every division should have 25 players and each team should have 6.25 players on the list. The AFC East has 23 players, but the Buffalo Bills have only one representative.
The New England Patriots lead the way with nine players. The New York Jets have eight, and the Miami Dolphins five.
