NFL Top 100 vs. Peter King

If you've been following NFL Network's "Top 100 Players" or at least been following here at CSC, you're pretty up-to-date on what's going on. I've always been a fan of Peter King's (Sports Illustrated MMQB writer) work, but this has me a little...discombobulated. He's been making his own "top 100" list as the weeks go by along with the "NFL's" and now they're down to the top 30. He has Jahri Evans ranked at 73 (and no it's not just his jersey number) whereas Evans was ranked 39 spots higher at 34 (which seems more fitting to me) on NFL Network's list. But at least he even ranked Jabari Greer (who I guess is under-rated) at number 66. The only other Saints player on his list (so far) is Carl Nicks, higher than NFLN at 41 (compared to 55). I don't think he'd put Colston in the top 30,  although there are a few surprises on his list, such as Troy Polomalu ranked at number 50. Vilma could possibly make it, but I have my doubts about that. So the only guy on the Saints left that could make it into the list is Brees, and who knows where he'll end up.

The only thing I can say about this list is everyone is entitled to their opinion...especially when it's your job.
