1Tom Brady95AGE: 34DOB: 8/3/77HT: 6-4WT: 225POS: QBAtt 492Comp 324Yds 3,900TD 36Int 4QBR 76.0Player Analysis
Brady has an excellent combination of size, intelligence, instincts and arm strength. He is just an above-average athlete but shows enough foot quickness and agility to slide in the pocket and deliver the ball effectively downfield. His poise enables him to find his second and third options.

MORE ANALYSIS
Brady has excellent vision and reads coverages and pressure packages as well as anyone. He can power the ball into tight spots or use touch on delicate throws. Brady can improvise and deliver the ball from different angles, but isn't an outstanding creator when plays break down. He is excellent at getting rid of the ball to avoid the sack.

CLOSE ANALYSIS


2Peyton Manning95AGE: 35DOB: 3/24/76HT: 6-5WT: 230POS: QBAtt 679Comp 450Yds 4,700TD 33Int 17QBR 69.5Player Analysis


Manning is primarily a pocket passer and has just enough agility and quickness to step up or to side-step the pass rush. He is not going to extend the pocket with speed or agility very often.

MORE ANALYSIS
He has a very strong arm and has shown the ability to throw from various angles and launch points while still maintaining his accuracy. Manning understands the offensive scheme and is given a lot of freedom to change plays at the line of scrimmage. He is an elite quarterback and still playing at a very high level.

CLOSE ANALYSIS


3Darrelle Revis95AGE: 26DOB: 7/14/85HT: 5-11WT: 198POS: CB

Tkl 32 Solo 42Sack 0Int 3FF 0TD 2


Player Analysis





Revis has outstanding quickness, agility and speed to challenge the top receivers in the league. He is at his best in press man coverage, in which he can use his long arms to get an effective jam on his opponent off the line of scrimmage.



MORE ANALYSIS


He has good vision and instincts. Revis is a solid run-support player who shows decent pop as a tackler. He doesn't have outstanding pure speed on the perimeter but understands angles and leverage. He can be dangerous with the ball in his hands after a turnover.



CLOSE ANALYSIS






4Adrian Peterson95AGE: 26DOB: 3/21/85HT: 6-1WT: 217POS: RBAtt 283Yds 1,298Avg 4.6Long 80TD 12Fum 1Player Analysis
Adrian Peterson continued to be one of the most productive ball carriers in the league in 2010. He was banged up and missed some time for the first time in his short four-year career but has been extremely durable since he entered the league.

MORE ANALYSIS
Peterson is an excellent combination of size, strength and athleticism. He has impressive power on contact but tends to carry his pads too high at times. He can break tackles or move the pile. Peterson is an instinctive inline runner with excellent lateral agility to find creases between the tackles. He has deceptive burst and speed to pick up chunks of yards and rip off long touchdown runs. He is a reliable receiver out of the backfield but isn't outstanding in this phase of the game. Look for Peterson to be even a larger part of the Vikings' offense with a new quarterback at the helm in 2011.

CLOSE ANALYSIS




5Aaron Rodgers94AGE: 27DOB: 12/2/83HT: 6-2WT: 225POS: QBAtt 475Comp 312Yds 3,922TD 28Int 11QBR 67.9Player Analysis
Rodgers has size, strength and athleticism. He makes good decisions and puts the Packers in position to win almost every game. He shows good vision and the ability to read defenses.

MORE ANALYSIS
Rodgers can power the ball into tight windows with his arm, and he can improvise when plays break down. He is effective in the pocket or off play-action, and while he doesn't have great speed he can pull the ball down and move the chains with his legs.

CLOSE ANALYSIS


6Drew Brees94AGE: 32DOB: 1/15/79HT: 6-0WT: 209POS: QBAtt 658Comp 448Yds 4,620TD 33Int 22QBR 65.9Player Analysis
Brees has missed just one game in the past five seasons and is consistently one of the leading passers when it comes to completions, completion percentages and quarterback ratings. He can make plays from the pocket and has the foot quickness and speed to extend the pocket and make plays from the perimeter.

MORE ANALYSIS


Brees has a great working knowledge of the passing game and excels when it comes to reading coverages and adjusting on the move. He knows how to game plan and sees possibilities as they develop. Brees brings a great combination of a physical skill set as well as the mental skills to attack a defense.

CLOSE ANALYSIS


7Andre Johnson93AGE: 30DOB: 7/11/81HT: 6-3WT: 225POS: WRRec 86Yds 1,216Avg 14.1Long 60TD 8Player Analysis


Johnson brings a rare combination of size, speed and athleticism. He is a good route runner who has the speed to challenge the secondary down the seam yet can run combination routes with excellent foot quickness, agility and acceleration.



MORE ANALYSIS
Johnson can get in and out of his breaks with foot quickness and a burst to separate from defenders and has a wide receiving radius that allows him to extend to make difficult catches. He can go up and high point the ball in a crowd and has the strength to overpower most cornerbacks when challenged.



CLOSE ANALYSIS


8Ben Roethlisberger93AGE: 29DOB: 3/2/82HT: 6-5WT: 241POS: QBAtt 389Comp 240Yds 3,200TD 17Int 5QBR 59.8Player Analysis


Roethlisberger is a big, strong-armed quarterback with above average athleticism. He has quick feet for his size and can slide and improvise to make effective throws downfield.



MORE ANALYSIS

Roethlisberger is the toughest quarterback in the league to get on the ground, with great instincts to avoid pressure and natural body strength to break tackles. He has great vision and patience to find his second and third options but can be a bit of a gambler.



CLOSE ANALYSIS


9Joe Thomas93AGE: 26DOB: 12/4/84HT: 6-6WT: 312POS: TGP 16GS 16Player Analysis
Thomas is an excellent combination of size, strength and athleticism. He has great instincts and reactions. His technique is strong for such a young player, and he obviously takes his craft seriously.

MORE ANALYSIS
Thomas can get to the second level as a run blocker and is adept at hitting a moving target downfield. Thomas could stand to add more strength. He is a physical lineman that can set the tone in the running game.

CLOSE ANALYSIS


10Larry Fitzgerald92AGE: 27DOB: 8/31/83HT: 6-3WT: 218POS: WRRec 90Yds 1,137Avg 12.6Long 41TD 6Player Analysis


Fitzgerald has quickly risen to arguably the most electric receiver in the NFL. He brings a rare combination of size, speed, athleticism and receiving skills. He is a good route runner who can sink his hips to get in and out of his breaks with good foot quickness and a burst to separate from defenders and has a gear coming out to maintain the separation.

MORE ANALYSIS
Fitzgerald's biggest asset is his ability to adjust and make acrobatic catches. He has good run skills after the catch and can turn a short catch into a long touchdown with a single missed tackle. He is competitive to the ball when in a crowd and will elevate to high-point the catch.

CLOSE ANALYSIS



11Patrick Willis92AGE: 26DOB: 1/25/85HT: 6-1WT: 240POS: LBTkl 128Solo 101Sack 6.0Int 0FF 2TD 0Player Analysis
Willis has been a very productive starting linebacker since Day 1. He has started every game he has played in since his rookie season and has missed just one game in the past four seasons. He is an instinctive player who is quick to locate the level of the ball and takes good angles to get there.

MORE ANALYSIS
He does a good job of using his hands to keep blockers off him and keeps working his way to the play. He has the speed to make plays near the sideline and a knack for filtering his way to the ball when attacking the inside run.

He gets good depth in his pass drops but still needs some work on route recognition and reading the quarterback's eyes from zone coverage. He is an intense competitor who leads the team on the field as well as in the locker room.

CLOSE ANALYSIS
12Philip Rivers92AGE: 29DOB: 12/8/81HT: 6-5WT: 228POS: QBAtt 541Comp 357Yds 4,710TD 30Int 13QBR 63.2Player Analysis
Rivers has a very strong arm and a quick delivery and the ability to make quick decisions. He is a very accurate passer who can make all the throws. He has very few interceptions relative to the number of touchdown passes he throws.

MORE ANALYSIS
Rivers does a great job reading coverages, going through his progressions and distributing the ball to all of his targets. He has become one of the most difficult quarterbacks in the league to blitz because of his ability to hit the receiver who settles into the vacated zone.

CLOSE ANALYSIS
13James Harrison92AGE: 33DOB: 5/4/78HT: 6-0WT: 242POS: LBTkl 100Solo 70Sack 10.5Int 2FF 6TD 0Player Analysis
Harrison uses his lack of height to leverage blockers at the point of attack and gets under larger tackles' pads when coming off the edge. He has great natural strength as a run defender and rarely gives ground in his gap responsibility.

MORE ANALYSIS
Harrison has a variety of pass-rush moves; his bull rush is as good as any in the league. He closes with ferocity and does not give up on plays. In coverage, Harrison covers ample ground in the short zones and is quick to close on routes in front of him.

CLOSE ANALYSIS
14Haloti Ngata92AGE: 27DOB: 1/21/84HT: 6-4WT: 330POS: DTTkl 63Solo 46Sack 5.5Int 0FF 0TD 0Player Analysis
Ngata has been a mainstay on the interior of the Ravens' defense since entering the league in 2006. He is one of the largest and most powerful interior defensive linemen in the NFL.

MORE ANALYSIS
He has excellent foot agility and quickness for his size. Ngata can push the pocket with strength to bull rush offensive linemen. He feels pad pressure well and uses his hands effectively to gain leverage and restrict running lanes. He was an impact pass-rusher in 2010. He is a versatile lineman who can align in more than one position in the Ravens' 4-3 scheme.

CLOSE ANALYSIS
15DeMarcus Ware92AGE: 29DOB: 7/31/82HT: 6-4WT: 257POS: LBTkl 66Solo 56Sack 15.5Int 0FF 2TD 0Player Analysis
Ware had another outstanding season for the Dallas defense in 2010. Ware has been a dominating force on the outside for the Cowboys since entering the league in 2005. He has excellent size and athleticism with deceptive strength attacking the line of scrimmage.

MORE ANALYSIS

CLOSE ANALYSIS

Asomugha has excellent size and speed for the position and has the foot quickness to extend the cushion with his pedal. He is effortless when flipping his hips to turn and run with receivers deep.

MORE ANALYSIS
He is quick and explosive in transition and can close on the target with a good burst when in off coverage. However, his biggest strength is his ability to be a shut-down press cornerback who can jam receivers at the line of scrimmage and throw them off their routes.

CLOSE ANALYSIS
17Chris Johnson92AGE: 25DOB: 9/23/85HT: 5-11WT: 191POS: RBAtt 316Yds 1,364Avg 4.3Long 76TD 11Fum 3Player Analysis

MORE ANALYSIS
He can get to the outside and turn upfield with a burst and shows excellent elusiveness in the open field. He is not a very effective blocker but will at least show some effort to get in the way. He is an effective receiver both out of the backfield and on downfield routes.

CLOSE ANALYSIS
18Troy Polamalu91AGE: 30DOB: 4/19/81HT: 5-10WT: 207POS: STkl 63Solo 49Sack 1Int 7FF 1TD 1Player Analysis
Polamalu is a defender whom offensive coordinators have to game plan for. At times, he can be too aggressive in pursuit, bite on play-action or miss a tackle in the open field.

MORE ANALYSIS
Polamalu covers a ton of ground and looks to be playing the game at a speed faster than just about everyone else on the field. Few players defend the run, play the pass or change a game like Polamalu. His anticipation, preparation and production are top notch.

CLOSE ANALYSIS

CLOSE ANALYSIS
20Jake Long91AGE: 26DOB: 5/9/85HT: 6-7WT: 317POS: TGP 16GS 16Player Analysis
Long has good balance, foot quickness and agility but isn't special for the left tackle position. He shows the ability to slide his feet and maintain contact with pass-rushers.

MORE ANALYSIS
He shows quick hands to counter and gain leverage. Long is physical in the run game, showing power to dominate his opponent at the point of attack. He can lock on and power block drive the defender at the point of attack. He does a nice job adjusting to moving targets in space and on the second level.

Reed has rare instincts. He has elite range and is one of the few backend defenders whom quarterbacks truly fear.

MORE ANALYSIS
Reed is a game-changer from his deep center-field position, which allows the Ravens to be very aggressive with their schemes. He is a supreme ball hawk with rare anticipation and ball skills. He is also an extremely dangerous weapon with the ball in his hands and is an immediate threat to score.

CLOSE ANALYSIS

Mangold has excellent initial quickness to gain leverage early in the play. He understands angles and how to leverage larger defenders.

MORE ANALYSIS
Mangold uses quick hands and a deceptively strong initial pop to maintain body positioning at the point of attack. He lacks great lateral quickness and agility on the second level. He doesn't have great natural strength to anchor versus powerful bull-rushers but uses pad level and technique to keep larger defenders at bay.

CLOSE ANALYSIS

MORE ANALYSIS

Gates came into the league with rare receiving skills and speed but has grown into his body and become a very effective in-line blocker, as well. He runs routes like a wide receiver with a quick release off the line as well as the ability to get in and out of his breaks with excellent foot quickness and a good burst.

MORE ANALYSIS
He has a very wide receiving radius and consistently makes highlight-reel catches. He has become QB Philip Rivers' first option when inside the red zone due to his ability to find space, adjust and go up for the ball in a crowd.

CLOSE ANALYSIS

Wilfork is one of the most powerful interior defenders in the league. He is a very good athlete for his size, showing lateral agility between the tackles. He can push the pocket with a bull-rush technique from the inside, but his production as a pass-rusher is average at best.

MORE ANALYSIS
He feels pad pressure well and reacts quickly as blocking schemes unfold. He has strong hands with a powerful initial punch to hold the point of attack. He is a load inside and rarely gives ground as a run defender.

CLOSE ANALYSIS
31Terrell Suggs89AGE: 28DOB: 10/11/82HT: 6-3WT: 260POS: LBTkl 68Solo 53Sack 11.0Int 0FF 2TD 0Player Analysis

MORE ANALYSIS
He uses his hands well to disengage as a run defender and work the edge of blockers. He is a versatile player who can effectively drop into coverage and is best in underneath zone schemes. He isn't extremely fast in pure man coverage and is rarely used in that way. He reacts quickly as plays unfold, which enables him to be active to the pile.

CLOSE ANALYSIS
32Dwight Freeney89AGE: 31DOB: 2/19/80HT: 6-1WT: 268POS: DETkl 25Solo 21Sack 10.0Int 0FF 5TD 0Player Analysis
Freeney has rare acceleration coming off the edge and has the ability to bend at the corner, to close on the pocket with a good burst of speed. He does tend to rely on his back-under spin move a bit too often but is still able to gain ground as he makes the move, even though it is pretty predictable.

MORE ANALYSIS
He plays with a non-stop motor and makes his share of moves through second effort as well as his physical tools. He is quick to read blocking schemes and quick to locate the ball and takes good angles to get to the play.

CLOSE ANALYSIS
33Mario Williams89AGE: 26DOB: 1/31/85HT: 6-6WT: 290POS: DETkl 28Solo 22Sack 8.5Int 0FF 1TD 0Player Analysis
Williams is an elite athlete with excellent length, speed and long arms that allow him to control and defeat blockers. He has been equally effective as a pass-rusher and defending the run as a 4-3 defensive end.

MORE ANALYSIS
He will be asked to be a bit more of a run stopper in Houston's new 3-4 scheme. He keeps his pad level down to leverage blocks and squeeze the play down, is quick to locate the ball and takes good angles.

He has come a long way in reading blocking schemes and fighting through pressure.

CLOSE ANALYSIS
34Calvin Johnson89AGE: 25DOB: 9/29/85HT: 6-5WT: 236POS: WRRec 77Yds 1,120Avg 14.5Long 87TD 12Player Analysis

Hali has made a successful transition from a defensive end in an even front to a stand-up outside linebacker in the 3-4 scheme. He is more effective coming forward than when dropping into space but can drop into the short zones effectively.

MORE ANALYSIS
He has learned how to avoid blockers when playing off the ball. He is quick to recognize blocking schemes and will leverage his way to the ball. He still needs to work on his hand use when it comes to warding off and shedding blockers, but can be relentless finishing plays.

CLOSE ANALYSIS
36Roddy White89AGE: 29DOB: 11/2/81HT: 6-0WT: 211POS: WRRec 115Yds 1,389Avg 12.1Long 46TD 10Player Analysis

White will go across the middle and catch the ball in traffic or run under the deep bomb to keep the secondary on their toes. He can sink his hips to get in and out of his breaks with foot quickness and has come a long way when it comes to running precise routes. He still has the occasional easy drop that you'd like to see eliminated, but White is a solid No. 1 receiver who can pretty much do it all.

Jones-Drew lacks height and length but compensates with excellent quickness, agility and body control. He has thick, powerful legs that allow him to run through more tackles than you'd expect.

MORE ANALYSIS

He can string together a series of moves, making him extremely dangerous once he gets to the second level. He does a good job of finishing his runs off and getting extra yards after initial contact. He is an effective receiver out of the backfield and downfield.

He is a pesky blocker who knows how to get in the way and get the job done, but is not a strong inline blocker when trying to seal defensive ends.

Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie has excellent dimensions for the position along with top speed, agility and body control. He can extend the cushion with his pedal and can flip his hips to open and run with receivers deep.

MORE ANALYSIS
He is very quick in transition and is explosive when driving on the ball after realigning himself. He will jump on underneath routes, making him susceptible to double moves, but has gotten better with age. He needs to get stronger, especially in his upper body. He is still developing when it comes to route recognition and reading the quarterback's eyes from off coverage, but is showing signs of becoming a legitimate shutdown corner.

Urlacher has an outstanding combination of size, strength and athleticism for the position, and is still the physical and emotional leader of the Bears' defense when healthy. He is an explosive run-stopper and an effective pass defender when not playing with nagging injuries.

MORE ANALYSIS

88Eli Manning82AGE: 30DOB: 1/3/81HT: 6-4WT: 218POS: QBAtt 539Comp 339Yds 4,002TD 31Int 25QBR 64.3Player Analysis
Manning has obvious physical talents and tools as an NFL quarterback. He has good mechanics but still occasionally throws off his back foot under pressure. He has good release quickness but can get a bit indecisive when protection breaks down.

MORE ANALYSIS
When he has time, he is excellent at stepping up into the pocket and delivering the ball with accuracy. He can put the ball on a rope to all three levels. He throws a very catchable deep ball. He is excellent at getting the ball out quickly to allow his receivers to make a play in pure man coverages.

Manning is a talented quarterback who can be inconsistent taking care of the ball with too many fumbles and interceptions, which have plagued his career.

CLOSE ANALYSIS
89John Abraham82AGE: 33DOB: 5/6/78HT: 6-4WT: 263POS: DETkl 40Solo 35Sack 13.0Int 1FF 2TD 0Player Analysis
Abraham was nicked up in 2010, but when healthy he provides good pressure off the edge. He is explosive initially and shows the ability to bend the corner and pressure the pocket with good acceleration.

MORE ANALYSIS
He knows how to read blocking schemes and does a good job of locating the ball and taking good angles, but can struggle when blockers manage to get square with him and lock on. He is not as effective when trying to set the edge or hunker down to hold up at the point of attack.

CLOSE ANALYSIS
90Michael Vick82AGE: 31DOB: 6/26/80HT: 6-0WT: 215POS: QBAtt 372Comp 233Yds 3,018TD 21Int 6QBR 66.6Player Analysis
Vick clearly was one of the most electrifying NFL players in 2010. He is undersized but may be the best overall athlete ever to play the position. He has excellent arm strength to fit the ball into small windows.

MORE ANALYSIS
Vick has improved his decision-making and accuracy. He has transformed from an erratic thrower and run-first athlete to a more cerebral play-caller who reads defenses and understands how to move the chains. Vick is a dangerous run threat who improvises when plays break down but can now hurt a defense as much with his arm as he can with his feet.

CLOSE ANALYSIS
91Tony Romo82AGE: 31DOB: 4/21/80HT: 6-2WT: 227POS: QBAtt 213Comp 148Yds 1,605TD 11Int 7QBR 58.1Player Analysis
Romo missed the last 10 games of the 2010 season with a fractured collarbone. He was having one of his best seasons of his eight-year career at the time of his injury. He has average size with above-average arm strength and deceptive athleticism.

MORE ANALYSIS
Romo has great feet in the pocket to slide and improvise to make plays downfield. He is a smart, instinctive signal-caller who might be one of the best improvisers at his position. He is a bit of a gunslinger, which is a big reason for his success, and has learned how to take care of the ball better in critical situation.

Romo can be one of the better signal-callers in the league when healthy and the Cowboys' success will depend on how well he bounces back in 2011.

CLOSE ANALYSIS

MORE ANALYSIS

MORE ANALYSIS
Jenkins has strong hands and uses them well to control blockers at the point of attack and does a good job restricting running lanes. He is a powerful tackler on contact, especially in confined areas. He runs well for his size and shows good range in pursuit.

Jenkins has become more of an impact defender and should continue to improve in the coming years.

97Darnell Dockett82AGE: 30DOB: 5/27/81HT: 6-4WT: 290POS: DTTkl 52Solo 45Sack 5Int 0FF 1TD 0Player Analysis
Dockett is equally adept at rushing the passer and defending the run. He has prototypical dimensions for the position, along with very good initial quickness and agility on the inside.

MORE ANALYSIS
He lacks great acceleration off the edge, but knows how to leverage angles and has developed a nice set of counter moves to work his way to the pocket. He feels pressure and will leverage blocks to squeeze the play down and is quick to locate the level of the ball. He can recognize blocking schemes and does a good job of using his hands to keep blockers at bay and himself free.

CLOSE ANALYSIS
98Chris Snee82AGE: 29DOB: 1/18/82HT: 6-3WT: 305POS: GGP 16GS 16Player Analysis

He can find the moving target when pulling. He plays with good leverage and pad level throughout the entire play. He shows excellent vision in pass protection.

He reacts well to changing fronts, stunts and twists. Snee is another consistent performer along the Giants' offensive line who should continue to play at a high level in 2011.

Clemons is explosive with his first two steps off the ball and shows good acceleration around the edge as he bends to pressure the pocket. He has gotten stronger with time but is not great at squeezing blocks down and forcing the action at the point of attack.

MORE ANALYSIS
He has learned how to use his hands to shed blockers and keep his body free as a pass-rusher and is starting to show the ability to use a counter move when his speed alone isn't doing it.
