Predicting The Top Five Of The 'NFL Top 100' Countdown

The ‘NFL Top 100′ countdown is near its completion, as the final 10 players will be announced next week.

The only Patriots player that has yet to hear his name called, is quarterback Tom Brady. Two other Pats have made the list, as Rob Gronkowksi checked in at 41, and Darrelle Revis got voted in at 37.

So now the question is, where will Brady fall in the top 10?

I think he deserves the number one spot. He did the most with the least last season, which in my opinion shows who is the best player in the game. But that is not going to happen. As sad as it is, most people (players included), don’t respect what Brady did last year, which will result in him dropping a spot or two in the rankings.

Here is my prediction (not what I think should happen) for the top five in these rankings:

1. Peyton Manning

2. Calvin Johnson

3. Tom Brady

4. Drew Brees

5. Adrian Peterson

Manning set all kinds of records last season, so I can see why he will gain the top spot. As for Johnson over Brady, it seems like the players appreciate a freak like Johnson more than an artist like Brady, which is definitely understandable. The last two spots are kind of a coin toss, as Brees is a terrific stat-producing quarterback, while Peterson reigns as the undisputed king of the running backs.

How do you think these rankings will turn out? Comment below with your predictions.
