Ratings key

We rated players on a 100-point scale in five categories worth up to 20 points each:

Mortality -- 10 possible points based on injury history (the more durable the player, the higher the score) and 10 possible points based on how close he would be to the Hall of Fame if an injury ended his career today.

Statistics -- Statistical milestones, awards, records and Pro Bowl appearances.

Team success -- Super Bowl victories and appearances, playoff appearances and victories, top playoff seeds earned.

Upside -- Perceived statistical potential based on age, skill, talent, fitness and durability. This includes potential to break records, climb statistical lists and earn Pro Bowl selections.

Intangibles -- Anything not covered by the other four categories, for instance: leadership, reputation, team success potential, superstar potential and positional representation in the Hall of Fame.

Order of tiebreakers: 1. Team; 2. Statistics; 3. Mortality
