Our friends at Touchdown Wire compiled a list of the top 101 NFL players, and Minnesota was represented with four players in the rankings.
Here is a little bit about Touchdown Wire’s methodology for the list:
“Recently, Mark Schofield and [Doug Farrar] compiled 14 different lists of the best NFL players at every position. From those names, we then compiled this list of the top 101 players in the NFL today. In this top 101, we forced ourselves to stick to players we had named in the positional lists, to avoid overdoing “skill position players” at the expense of slot cornerbacks, guards and interior defensive linemen.”
Notably, Harrison Smith, Adam Thielen, Anthony Barr and Danielle Hunter were snubbed from Touchdown Wire’s list of top players. Maybe some of those Vikings — especially Barr and Hunter, who suffered serious injuries last year — can make the list in the 2022 offseason.
Here are the Minnesota players who made it:
