From Scouts Inc. via ESPN this afternoon:
After watching games and breaking down film, Scouts Inc. has evaluated and graded more than 2,500 NFL players heading into the 2011 season.
Top 10 from their Top 200:
1. Tom Brady
2. Peyton Manning
3. Darrelle Revis
4. Adrian Peterson
5. Aaron Rodgers
6. Drew Brees
7. Andre Johnson
8. Ben Roethlisberger – Roethlisberger is a big, strong-armed quarterback with above average athleticism. He has quick feet for his size and can slide and improvise to make effective throws downfield. Roethlisberger is the toughest quarterback in the league to get on the ground, with great instincts to avoid pressure and natural body strength to break tackles. He has great vision and patience to find his second and third options but can be a bit of a gambler.
9. Joe Thomas
10. Larry Fitzgerald
