    4 Vikes make top 50 current players

    [size=13pt]Top 50[/size]

    By Pete Prisco

    10. Kevin Williams, DT, Minnesota Vikings: He is a powerful inside player who teams with Pat Williams to form the best tackle tandem in the league. He is good against the run, yet quick enough to get pass-rush penetration.

    12. Jared Allen, DE, Minnesota Vikings: He led the league in sacks last season with the Chiefs. The Vikings added him to give them the best defensive line in the league. Allen plays hard all the time.

    15. Adrian Peterson, RB, Minnesota Vikings: Peterson was special as a rookie and should be even better this time around. He is a big, strong and fast and can rip off the big runs with an Eric Dickerson-like ease.

    19. Steve Hutchinson, G, Minnesota Vikings: He wasn't his usual self in his first season with the Vikings in 2006, but bounced back to his dominating form last year.

    [size=13pt]List of top 50 players will raise eyebrows[/size]

    Prisco ranks the top 50 players currently in the NFL.

    At the top, to no surprise, are Tom Brady and Peyton Manning.

    To much surprise, No. 6 is Texans defensive end Mario Williams.
    The third-year player is six spots higher than Vikings defensive end Jared Allen.


    Leading the way in the top twenty are the Vikings with four players.
    The Pats, Colts, Chargers, and Cowboys each have two.

    Re: 4 Vikes make top 50 current players

    If after 1 year Mario Williams can be ranked ahead of proven Vets like Allen and Freeney, then AD should have been ahead of LT.
    But I wouldn't agree with that either.

    The only thing I like about the list is there are only 2 Packers on it

    Wow ... four of the top 19? Lots of things to be getting excited about!
    How can they seriously put Mario Williams ahead of Jared Allen? He may be there soon, but right now? Too soon.
    No Tony Romo is kind of a joke, but I think this list seems pretty good.
