Talent alone doesn't win football games. The Eagles learned that the hard way in 2011, but the coaches appear to have their talent in a better position to succeed this season.
The Eagles have Pro Bowlers everywhere—Nnamdi Asomugha, DeSean Jackson and Trent Cole, just to name a few.
They also have several young players who haven't come close to reaching their potential yet. Players like Brandon Graham and Nate Allen, along with a very talented 2012 draft class, could have huge breakout seasons.
The NFL Network has compiled a list of the Top 100 players in the NFL, which was voted on by players over the past two years. It has been a very successful show in the offseason because we, as NFL fans, are always in need of football.
Seeing where players, coaches or writers rank players in that big of a sample size is fascinating.
I'm not going to attempt to rank the Top 100 players out of over 1800 players in the NFL. That type of sample size will take a lot of film study from all 32 teams.
Instead, I will attempt to rank the top 10 players on the Eagles roster.
I based my rankings on how the players played in 2011 and how they have looked going into 2012.
I left Jason Peters off because he won't be playing this season. Technically, he won't be on the roster this season. He will be on the injured reserve list.
Here are the top 10 players on the Eagles Roster.
