Now that it's midseason of the 2012 NFL season, it's time for rankings—rankings of everything, but most importantly, players.

Position wasn't a huge factor; it's more about who was the best at his position. This is not a midseason MVP list. However, don't expect to see too many kickers or long snappers.
So which players are standing out the most in 2012 (in a good way, that is)? There's only one way to find out.
