Aaron Rodgers is the best QB in the NFL
The NFL season is seven weeks old, and there have been some amazing performances so far. We'll put together the best position players at every position, including special teams.
This list is based on statistics and an individual's worth to his team.
There will be some close calls and some that will be easy choices.
Adrian Peterson leads the NFL with 712 rushing yards and eight rushing TDs. He is the Viking offense.
Big surprise, huh? There is no way to keep Megatron off this list.
His performance to date has been phenomenal; 10 touchdown receptions and bringing life back to the Lions.
Steve Smith leads the NFL with 818 receiving yards and averages 21.1 yards a reception.
This is the ideal target for Cam Newton to cut his teeth in the NFL.
Jimmy Graham is the TE of the future right now.
He leads all TEs in yards (674) and TD receptions (five) and is another weapon in Drew Brees' arsenal.
Joe Thomas has been an anchor for the Cleveland Browns since his arrival in 2007.
One of the best tackles in the NFL.
Jake Long has been solid in his three NFL seasons.
If the Miami Dolphins only had a decent offense, he would shine even more.
Logan Mankins has been protecting Tom Brady in New England for seven years.
He has done an awesome job this year opening holes for BenJarvus Green-Ellis as well.
Jahri Evans has never missed a game in his five-year career and has been blasting holes through opposing defensive lines and protecting Drew Brees.
Nick Mangold is by far the best center in the NFL.
He protects an average quarterback, making Mark Sanchez look better than he actually is.
Michael Koenen leads the NFL in punts inside the 20 and is fourth in the league in net average at 42.7.
Jared Allen has rebounded from a sub-par year with a Defensive Player of the Year-caliber season.
He leads the NFL in sacks and is third among defensive linemen in tackles.
Jason Pierre-Paul is the only defensive end who could give Jared Allen a run for his money this season.
He ranks second in both tackles and sacks.
Richard Seymour is tied for the league-lead in sacks among defensive tackles.
He has been a menace to opposing quarterbacks.
Antonio Garay is the league leader in tackles by a defensive tackle.
His presence makes the opposition shake in its cleats.
Demarcus Ware as been harassing QBs for years, and this year is no different.
His eight sacks leads all NFL linebackers.
Pat Angerer leads the world in tackles in 2011.
Whether it is because the defense is always on the field due to Indianapolis' futile offense is a question.
Either way, his numbers don't lie.
LaMarr Woodley is a beast and a QB killer.
He ranks right behind Ware in sacks.
Ever since Charles Woodson steeped foot in Green Bay, he has been outstanding.
He can blitz, stop the run and cover. He leads the NFL with five picks.
Revis Island is alive and well; Darrelle Revis is second in the NFL in picks and passes defended.
Three picks, 50 tackles, eight passes defended and two forced fumbles by Morgan Burnett.
An amazing accomplishment while playing in the defensive backfield with a ball hawk like Charles Woodson.
George Wilson has been instrumental in the resurgence of the Buffalo Bills.
He leads all strong safeties in tackles and picks.
The greatest return man the NFL has ever seen is a must.
When teams plan around Devin Hester's return ability, there is something to be said.
