Super Bowl XLVI will bring an end to the 2011 NFL season this weekend as the New York Giants face off against the New England Patriots.

As such, it's time to take a look back at who were the best performers from the season gone by. This list is not based on reputations or statistics; it is a list of valuations carried out from watching substantial amounts of football throughout the season.

Players were chosen based on their performance, ability and potential, but, for the most part, each case was individually assessed, and there is not a single clear criteria that can judge each player against each other.

Players such as Thomas Davis, Aaron Smith, etc. were removed from contention for repeatedly suffering severe injuries, whereas players like Peyton Manning and Kyle Williams were not discounted for missing one season. Until Manning is standing at a podium announcing his retirement, he will be included on my list of best quarterbacks.

Here are the best players for each position across the whole of the NFL.
