ESPN’s Scouts Inc’s top 200 NFL players: Who made it from the NFC East?

This list is comical.  Apparently, Terence Newman and Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie are better football players than Michael Vick, Miles Austin, Asante Samuel, Brian Orakpo and London Fletcher. Mike Jenkins, one of the worst starters in all of football last year, makes the cut? NO COLT ANDERSON?!?!?  Aaaaaand that’s about as much time as I want to spend on this:

15 Cowboys DeMarcus Ware
16 Eagles Nnamdi Asomugha
22 Giants Justin Tuck
26 Eagles Trent Cole
29 Cowboys Jason Witten
55 Eagles Jason Peters

    Awesome blog, it’s just like a game for me! It’s so infomative and usefull, thanks a lot! If you post more of this great stuff, I’ll visit your blog again!

  2. Undoubtedly a wonderful written piece! Weve book marked it and mailed against eachother to pretty much most of my close friends simply because I know they’ll fascinated, thank you very much!

  3. […] made fun of Scouts Inc’s Top 200 players a couple weeks ago, but today they came out with their Week 2 “complete advance scouting […]

    You can say whatever you want here, but the fact is that impartial observers who actually understand football made tape-based evaluations. The fact that they don’t cohere to your uninformed and Eagles-biased opinions is of little consequence. We’ve heard scouts across the league commend Jenkins and Newman, and I’ll take their assessments over yours. Is Vick a better ATHLETE? Of course. But he’s never been much of a quarterback.

    Regression to the mean is a bitch…

    1. I saw Newman and Jenkins plenty last season. They were both atrocious.

  5. Nico says:

    Laron Landry? OJ Atogwe left off the list? hmmmm…

  6. […] Of course, I should note that Scouts Inc. has him ranked as the 74th best CB in the NFL, so I’m not sure how that translates to him being a “quality starting cornerback.”  Then again, we’re talking about the same people that think Terence Newman is a better football player than Michael Vick.

    Where is Maclin?!

  8. Gary says:

    There are so many things wrong with this list it literally gives me a headache.

  10. Matt Chandik says:

    Kareem McKenzie is ahead of DeSean Jackson, Miles Austin, the three good QBs of the division, LeSean McCoy, Brian Orakpo, etc…

    I…I’ve got nothing. Just flabbergasted.

  11. slandog says:

    I’d think that Shady McCoy would be higher on the list too 103, he’s much better then that. He should be at least ahead of Newman

  12. The Legend says:

    Well I’m assuming the Ultimate Vick Hater KC Joyner had a vote in these rankings so that’s why Vick is probably so low. Anybody in there right mind knows that he is at least a top 20 player in this league
