Pick #2-#1


2011 Stats: 1,624 Total Yards | 20 TDs | 4.8 RuAVG | 273 ATT | 48 REC
Quote:
The most lethal dual threat running back in the league, Lesean "Shady" McCoy has unmatched with his cut on a dime agility, is an excellent pass catcher, and has just spooky awareness. He's incredibly tough, and but with his awareness.. very rarely ever takes big hits. After turning just 24, and coming off a statement season...Shady is poised to have another elite season in what appears to be the first chapter in a great career



2011 Stats: 58 tackles | 19.5 sacks | 2 PD | 2 FF
Quote:
Ware is not just the best player in the division, but he is also one of the best players in the entire NFL. Since he was drafted 11th overall by Dallas in the 2005 NFL Draft, Ware has dominated, year in and year out. He has never missed a game in seven seasons, and has 99.5 career sacks in that time span. He has shown no signs of slowing down, accumulating 19.5 sacks this past season. Look for Ware to have another double digit sack season this year.

The list so far is at the bottom of this post.
------------------------------
This a bi-partisan made list, Me, Ian, texas_outlaw, Slamman, turtle28, and footy_29 each voted and from that we came up with the 2012 Top 20 players, also with the next top five as honorable mentions. No Giant poster stepped up so don't whine if you are a fan that someone isn't high enough, we tried to be as unbiased as we could.


Over the next week I will be releasing a few players, discus the players position on the list or thoughts in general about the list in this thread.

This was texas_outlaw's idea, I made the graphics and some of the blurbs under the picks, and everyone else helped a lot with voting and writing as well. Some blurbs might not be up right away, but I'll add them once we get them.

The Recap


HONORABLE MENTIONS


2011 Stats: 51 tackles | 6 int. | 17 passes defended
Quote:
Like many current Giants stars, Webster came into his own in the 2007 campaign towards a Super Bowl, going from a special teams contributor to starter. He has maintained a good consistant level of play since then, and finished with a career high 6 interceptions last year. With many Giants corners hobbled by injury, Webster will lead the New York corners yet again this year.



2011 Stats: 25 tackles | 3 sacks | 8 passes defended | 1 FR
Quote:
Barry Cofield was the redskins prize FA signing last season from the Giants. For the First time he played NT in a 3-4 scheme. He struggled some early on but by seasons end some opposing coaches were saying he was playing as the best NT in the nfl. He had 3 sacks from the NT position which is more pressure than most provide. He also had 8 batted passes which was one of the best in the league. He will only be better in his 2nd year as a NT in the redskins scheme.



2011 Stats: 63 receptions | 928 yards | 9 TDs | 14.7 AVG
Quote:
Dez Bryant may be one of the most physically imposing wide receivers in the game today. If he can get his head on straight, Bryant should quickly develop into one of the best receivers all around in the NFL. As of now, however, Bryant just sneaks into the honorable mentions list for best players in the NFC East. Until he can prove that he can consistently dominate games, Dez should not yet crack the top 20. But don't think he is far off.



2011 Stats: 63 tackles | 7.5 sacks | 6 FF | 1 INT
Quote:
Ryan Kerrigan is a rising star in the division. He came in on a tear week 1 last year intercepting Eli Manning and scoring a td. He converted from DE in College and was a pleasant surprise giving the redskins the pressure opposite orakpo they needed. He provided 7.5 sacks a rookie last year. He should only improve this year.



2011 Stats: 40 tackles | 18 sacks | 3 FF | 1 PD
Quote:
It really speaks to the depth of the the division if when a guy who's had 33 Sacks in the the last two years is only an honorable mention. Babin is a bit one sided as a player, he isn't the greatest run-defender. However he does one of the leagues most important facets extremely well, and should continue this resurgence from the former bust he was that Jim Washburn unlocked two years ago in Tennessee.


Picks 20


2011 Stats: 43 receptions | 579 yards | 7 TDs | 13.5 AVG
Quote:
Miles Austin squeaked into the top 20 despite his recent injury history. When Austin is healthy is is a legit top 10 WR in the NFL. The problem, of course, is the Austin has repeatedly suffered hamstring injuries which have limited his playing time..



2011 Stats: 58 receptions | 961 yards | 4 TDs | 16.6 AVG
Quote:
Desean had an off year last year, and he acknowledged that his contract situation effected his play last season. However he only did slightly worse statistically, and stepped up in the latter part of the 2011 season. But now that he has been payed, and is happy, Desean should return to being one of the leagues best playmakers in 2012.



2011 Stats: 16 GS & GP
Quote:
Coming from Saginaw Valley State, The Toddfather goes about life in the NFL with little fanfare. After being one of the best guard in the league for a couple years, he was asked to fill in at RT less than two weeks before the season in 2011.....and his performance barely dropped at all, and within a few weeks got back to the level of play that fans were accustomed to all those years at guard. Herremans is one of the best O-linemen in the game, let alone the division, and should once again prove that he is in 2012



2011 Stats: 16 GS & GP
Quote:
For the first time in the Jerry Jones era, an offensive lineman was selected in the first round. With the 9th overall pick, Jones passed up flashier players like Prince Amukamara and J.J. Watt for the athletic lineman out of USC. Smith had a fantastic year on the right side of the line, and will make the transition to left tackle this season. Still the youngest player on the Cowboys, Smith looks like a cornerstone left tackle that Dallas has been looking for since Flozell Adams departed.



2011 Stats: 3,303 receptions | 18 yards | 14 INT | 59.8 CMP%
Quote:
Michael Vick hasn't really shown much during the preseason, but then again he never has. Vick enjoyed his first offseason as starting QB of the eagles this year, during which he worked tirelessly to improve his game. He was at the complex everyday, except for his wedding of course, working on blitz pickup and overall mastery of Andy Reid's offense. Mike Vick hopes to get closer to the 2010 version of himself rather than the disappointing 2011 version this year. If he can the rest of the league will feel it.



2011 Stats: 45 tackles | 4 INT | 15 passes defended
Quote:
Carr is one of the most physical CBs in the NFL today and has the ability to take a WR out of a play before the WR can even get into his route. He brings an edge to the Cowboys secondary that it has been missing since days of Deion Sanders and Darren Woodson. Carr fits perfectly into Rob Ryan's defensive scheme. The question now becomes whether Carr can do the same things against the NFCE that he did against the AFCW. By making this list, the voters gave Carr the benefit of the doubt.



2011 Stats: 82 receptions | 1,536 yards | 9 TD | 18.7 AVG
Quote:
Many people's first response after the first few Giants games last year was "Who the heck is Victor Cruz?" But it wasn't long until everyone knew who exactly he was, and by years end he finished with an impressive 1,536 yards receiving and 9 touchdowns, and was one of the leagues best in 2011. Cruz hopes to prove he was no fluke in 2012



2011 Stats: 105 tackles | 4 INT | 2 FR
Quote:
Sean Lee is one of the fastest rising young players in the NFL. In his first year as a starter, Lee recorded 105 tackles and 4 INTs. Lee has great instincts for the football and excels at diagnosing plays at the snap. Lee has become the vocal leader that the Cowboys defense has been missing. The thing that stands out most about Lee is that he does things the right way with the right attitude. Lee will be a dominating force in the NFC East for years to come.



2011 Stats: 59 tackles | 9.0 Sacks | 3 FF | 1 FR
Quote:
N/A



2011 Stats: 78 receptions | 1,192 yards | 7 TD | 15.7 AVG
Quote:
Being the 5th reciever off the board in the '09 draft, Hakeem Nicks had a chip on his shoulder from day one in the NFL. Since then he has risen to be one of the best recievers not only in his class but in the league. If Hakeem can shake off his injury proneness, one can only imagine the impressive number he would put up. Hicks is healthy and ready to go for a big 2012
.



2011 Stats: 37 tackles | 5 SACK | 1 FF | 3 PD
Quote:
Justin Tuck has been an top-tier D-end for 5 years, and it's no coincidence that the Giants have won 2 championships in that time-span. Eli Manning might've had a big role in the game, but it was the dominate performance of the D-line, with Tuck being one of the most impressive, that helped get the Giants get there in the first place... as well as keep future hall of famer Tom Brady on his heels the whole time he was out there. Tuck was a bit banged up last year, but looks to stay health and dominate yet again in 2012.



2011 Stats: 166 tackles | 1.5 Sacks | 3 FF | 2 INT | 8 PD
Quote:
N/A



2011 Stats: 79 receptions | 942 yards | 5 TD | 11.9 AVG
Quote:
While Witten may not be quite at the level he once was, he is still a dominant tight end, and Tony Romo's go to option. The tough as nails tight end rarely misses a game, and is one of the most consistent players in all of football, regardless of position. He is not, and never has been, a flashy player. He is, however, a downright great football player. A leader on and off the field, Witten is still arguably a top five tight end in the league.



2011 Stats: 4,184 yards | 31 TDs | 10 INT | 66.3 CMP%
Quote:
In 2011, Romo went a long way towards silencing many of his critics when he put up amazing stats, limited mistakes, and played through a broken rib and punctured lung. Since 2006, Romo has demonstrated the ability to make incredible plays and put up big numbers in the passing game. However, that same ability also labeled Romo as a gunslinger. For all the superlatives, there were always the negatives. In 2011, Romo still displayed his houdini-esque escapes, but he also played with more control. This resulted in a 3 to 1 TD ration and a 104 QB rating. At 32, Romo is playing the best football of his career. The question in 2012 seems to be whether Romo's OL will do enough to help the Cowboys and their QB take the next step.



2011 Stats: 40 tackles | 3 INT | 5 PD
Quote:
Nnamdi didn't have his greatest season last year, but it was still better than most other corners in the league. Without catering to Asante Samuel inability to change sides or scheme and having an offseason to work out the kinks...Nnamdi should be back to his old level of play once again. Asomugha is tall, lean, and fast....he has long arms that just brick-wall recievers at the line..but the speed to stick with them down field as well. Nnamdi will match-up against every teams number one threat in 2012, whether that be a tightend or wide reciever, and shut them down.

FYI... I made a late campaign push to put Babin in the top 20 and Maclin as an honorable mention. So, don't blame the Cowboys fans for those omissions.

Nope, we used input for their top ten list which was a basis of voting somewhat though. But no one stepped up

I want to thank Ian, Slam, Des, FM, Turtle, and Footy for all the hard work they put in. Kiltman you were my MVP for the project.

Pretty sure everyone came away unhappy with some of the rankings - which is a positive sign of compromise! Laughing

Once the other threads are up and running I will provide the links for you guys - but I hope you all enjoy!
