Yes Phillips was 2 points behind Branch so he was technically #11. Rolle only had 8 points.

6. Adrian Wilson


Wut.

Hurricanes25 06-22-2012 10:09 PM

I never sent my list in but I'm surprised to see Reed and Polamalu #1 and 2. Name recognition, I guess. In no particular order, I think Berry, Thomas, and Weddle are the 3 best safeties in the league.

9. Dashon Goldson, San Francisco 49ers

LOL. No.

OSUGiants17 06-22-2012 10:28 PM

Can't believe KP missed this list. Weedle should be higher too. I actually left Berry off my list because I was only basing it on what we've already seen and having only seen one season(albeit a dominant one) I could put him above some of these guys, especially since I'm not sure how he will recover.

Ed Reed is still the best safety in the NFL. Nobody DB outside Revis disrupts a passing game like Ed Reed.

I was close on this one as well, I had every one of these guys but Kam Chancellor in my Top 10.

Prowler 06-22-2012 10:55 PM

I had Bethea at 6, Nick Collins, and Kenny Phillips rounding out 9 and 10. I left off Goldson, Branch, and Byrd.

Bulldogs 06-22-2012 10:59 PM

I'll admit I completely forgot Eric Berry on my list, so it's funny he still wound up at #4.

Yeah that was the first thing that stood out to me too.

Earl's better than Reed at this point.

NotMyJob 06-23-2012 12:23 AM

i voted for Troy P at #2 just because i knew it was going down like that. the top 2 were set in stone whether anyone likes it or not, although i do agree with Ed going #1. Troy could be a bit further down the list.

i think if Nick Collins career wasn't in question he'd be top 5, as well. i was going to ***** about Eric Berry being so high after only playing a single season, but then i looked and saw i rated him #5. heh

At tackling, sure. In coverage, no. Give me the best coverage safety over all else.

jrdrylie 06-23-2012 12:56 AM

I put Troy P very low on my list. I didn't even put Berry on my list. I think he gets vastly overrated on these boards. I loved him in college and as a prospect. But he had a good and then missed last year with an injury. He needs to show a bit more before he can be called a top five safety.

lol yeah, i knew it wouldn't have mattered either way tho.

it'd be like voting for Herman Cain when you knew Mitt Romney was getting the nomination anyway.

...loved Black Walnut, man.

edit// but yeah, each of those guys made my list except Tyvon Branch and Adrian Wilson

tjsunstein 06-23-2012 01:31 AM

I was curious to see what everyone thought of Collins on this board for a while but that time has passed.

He had a hell of a year. Stuntin was a habit for him in 2011.

prock 06-23-2012 03:09 AM

There aren't very many good safeties in the NFL.

I agree. I'd go as far as to say it is probably the hardest position in the entire league to find a truly elite high impact player for. They say QB is but I actually think S edges it out just slightly.

And that's because the position is extremely hard to be good at. Gotta tackle like Willis and cover like Revis, or most of the time a safety will be in the highlights for the wrong reason. Seemingly plenty of people call TroyP and Reed overrated. When people who make such claims stop to think, they need to ask themselves, relative to what? Certainly no one else at the position.

Norris 06-23-2012 05:11 AM

I want to see Troy Polamalu, Pittsburgh Steelers on the top of list because both are really very great players.

TACKLE 06-23-2012 05:14 AM

I will say this...whether it's this year or next year, when he gets back to 100%, Eric Berry will be the best defensive back in football not named Revis.

Complex 06-24-2012 02:10 PM

Dashon Goldson is low, Adrian Wilson is overrated,Kam Chancellor is underrated and Eric Berry is overrated he had one good seaon and it wasn't like it was godly season or something.

Troy Polamalu is overrated but I expected him in that spot.
