Touchdown Wire left off some notable Vikings from its top 101 list of the best players in the NFL.
I wanted to preface this list of snubs by saying pretty much every NFL team has notable players who did not make it. Also, here is something about the methodology that should be helpful to note:
“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.”
So some players will be snubbed from this list due to not being a top player at their individual position. That said, there are still some interesting snubs.
Here they are:
