#NFLRank: Three from NFC East so far
By Dan Graziano
Our #NFLRank project debuts today, in which we endeavor to rank the top 100 players in the NFL on offense and the top 100 on defense. Today, on the first day, you get Nos. 91-100 on each list. This is the offense list, and this is the defense list. This will obviously be unveiled a piece at a time, and I imagine it will engender much debate. Greg Garber's full introduction to the whole thing is here.
In today's set of rankings, we have three NFC East players -- two on offense and one on defense:
No. 93. DeSean Jackson, Philadelphia Eagles wide receiver
No. 99. Miles Austin, Dallas Cowboys wide receiver
No. 94, Morris Claiborne, Cowboys cornerback
Pretty strong showing by Claiborne after just one season in the league, whereas I have to believe Jackson and Austin would have fared better had we done this list a couple of years ago.
What do you guys think? Too high? Too low? Just right?
