Scouts Top 200 missing Roos, Bethea

As I got near the end of my scan of Scouts Inc.’s new list of the NFL’s top 200 players, I started thinking about who I felt like was overdue to appear from the AFC South.

Jeff Saturday, Michael Griffin and Rashean Mathis all made appearances in the final 10.

Michael Roos and Antoine Bethea did not.

I think the omissions of the Titans’ left tackle and the Colts’ safety from this list are big. And a mistake.

The position-by-position lists start Wednesday, and we’ll see where Roos ranks among tackles. We’ll see Bethea among the safeties on Thursday.

We should have seen both today.

Here’s the Insider file of the Top 200 and below are the AFC South representatives.

See any other objectionable omissions? Think one of these guys is too high or two low? Please discuss.
