Best NFL players next in Power Rankings

Next up in the ESPN.com series of Power Rankings will be a list of the top 10 players in the NFL. That is scheduled to run June 28 and I’ll be filling out my ballot shortly.

I’m pretty sure New Orleans quarterback Drew Brees will be very high on my list. But I’m looking around the rest of the division and the rest of the NFL and trying to figure out if any other NFC South players belong in the top 10.

Atlanta’s Roddy White, Matt Ryan and Michael Turner, New Orleans’ Jonathan Vilma, Carolina’s Jordan Gross and Steve Smith and Tampa Bay’s Josh Freeman; I think highly of all these guys. I’ll give each consideration, but I’m asking for your input.

I’m thinking there might be room for only one or two NFC South players beyond Brees. Please share your thoughts on how you’d rank the rest of the NFC South candidates in the comments section below or send a note to my mailbag.
