There are other exceptionally talented and productive tight ends in the NFL - - to inlcude Jason Witten, Kellen Winslow II, Algae Crumpler, Vernon Davis and Antonio Gates. Is Cooley the best TE in the NFL as of now? No. Is he in the top five of the tight ends in the NFL as of now? Absolutely. Does that make him a mortal lock to be in the Top Fifty Players in the NFL? NO, it does not...

Is Chris Samuels the best OT in the NFC East? Maybe yes - - but also may be no. He's very good, but is he one of the 50 best players on the NFL? If you were designing a 50 man roster and had your pick from anywhere in the league, would Samuels be a guy you would write into your roster in India ink? Not on my list...

Now if you want to get me upset, how did he miss Ade Jimoh on this list. Or Rock Cartwright ...
i agree with this post, but i'd omit vernon davis in place of somebody that's actually proved he can play, like gonzo.

Re: No Players in the top 50?

That Guy:

No argument if you want to put Gonzales in there and take Vernon Davis out. The point I was trying to make is the while Cooley is a VERY good tight end, he's not the best tight end in the NFL and in fact he may not be better than sixth or seventh at that position.

So, if you are picking a 50 man roster of the best players in the league, it might be hard to put six or seven tight ends on the squad.

One could find a similar situation at quarterback. You are picking the best available squad and you will stock it with three QBs. OK, so you decide to put Brady and P. Manning on the squad. Now, who is #3?

Carson Palmer? Ben Roethlisberger? E. Manning? Donovan McNabb? Brett Favre? (I think he's coming back.) Patrick Ramsey (Just seeing if you are paying attention here...

If you could only pick one of them, you'd leave some pretty good QBs off the squad.

Re: No Players in the top 50?

Lets pretend for a minute that these ranking actually mean something.

The Superbowl champions only have 1 player on that list so what does that tell you? Individuals are not what the league is about. An overall solid team with good but not great depth is what makes a champion, not single players.
