Always fun to see his opinion on the top 100 players in the league every year. Here's our players that made the list and Prisco's analysis!
4. Nmandi Asomugha, CB, Oakland Raiders: He doesn't get interceptions because quarterbacks don't throw at him, but his cover skills are better than anybody in the league. He's about to cash in big as a free agent.
My take: He's the 4th overall (2nd defensive player overall to DeMarcus Ware). All I have to say is thank god that Revis wasn't ahead of Nnamdi. Revis got No. 13 overall. I absolutely hate it when fools think Revis is better, can't stand it. Nobody throws at Nnamdi, plain and simple. Yeah I know Revis doesn't get thrown at often, but he sure the hell gets targeted more than Nnamdi. Put Revis in the Silver and Black and see how dominant he'd be playing man 24/7, DeAngelo Hall anyone? Well maybe not DeAngelo Hall, but he wouldn't be as dominant. Revis just recently got No.1 over Nnamdi by like two or three points in ESPN's top cornerbacks in the NFL, total BS. Interesting in that was the fact that Stanford Routt got No.11 and "The Professor" John Clayton had Routt as his No.6 overall in the league, that's pretty impressive. Clayton also had Nnamdi over Revis in the rankings.
54. Darren McFadden, RB, Oakland Raiders: He showed last season what he can do when he stays on the field. He is the latest in the line of explosive runners to come into the league in the past four years.
My take: Should have been higher. Jamaal Charles was 25th overall and Arian Foster was 32nd, give me a break man. According to Priscos rankings Dmac is the 7th best running back in the league behind: Chris Johnson (7th), Adrian Peterson (16th), Jamaal Charles (25th), Arian Foster (32nd), Maurice Jones-Drew (37th), Michael Turner (52nd).....Out of those 7 I'd have Dmac 3rd, behind Johnson and Peterson. But look at this group, I only see two backs that are explosive AND powerful, Dmac and Peterson. Charles and Johnson are burners. I'd consider Foster, MJD and Turner more of the bruiser type backs. But you can put Peterson and McFadden in both of those categories. I mean how many people did Dmac run the hell over this past year, I can name some right off the top of my head (all safeties too) that stand out: Jon McGraw from KC, OJ Atogwe from St. Louis (knocked his mouthpiece out) and we all can't forget about San Diegos Eric Weddle (who by the way got honorable mention on this list). I also remember during one of the games last year against Denver the announcers said that Champ Bailey had said that Dmac was the hardest RB to tackle in the league, uh yeah, I think that says alot! I can't wait for Dmac to take over the league next year, he's gonna put on a show on MNF!
69. Richard Seymour, DE, Oakland Raiders: For stretches last season, he was as good as any defensive lineman in the league. He just needs to do it more consistently. Age could be a factor in that.
My take: I'm fine with this spot. Prisco put it perfect, "For stretches last season, he was as good as any defensive lineman in the league". I mean it seemed like Seymour would constantly be in the backfield dominating. He should've been 10 spots higher for decking Big Ben hahaha.
Zach Miller also got the third honorable mention on this list as well.
