B/R NFL 1,000: Top 100 Players Overall

After 10 weeks of rolling out our assessment of NFL players at each position, we can now present the top 100 players overall. 

The B/R NFL 1,000 project rated players based on the 2011 season and, excluding Peyton Manning (who deserves a pass as a future Hall of Famer), only players who competed in more than 200 snaps during the season were included. That means no Jamaal Charles, no Eric Berry and many other big-name players who didn't qualify for admission.

To see the full 1,000 on one PDF, click here. Need to review any of the rankings? You can see them all at our B/R NFL 1,000 home page.

But now, for the cream of the crop, we compile the top 100.

The following slides, counting down from the 100th player (whose rank was a tie for 98th) to the first, include the original analysis and scoring from our position breakdowns. Thus, the criteria are different from player to player.

The maximum score for a player was 100, except for punters and placekickers. Punters and placekickers were scored on a 50-point scale, and their scores were doubled for inclusion in the overall list.
