3 Saints Listed on CBS Sportsline’s Top 50 Players in NFL

The complete list of the top 50 players in the NFL, can be found here at cbs.sportsline.com. Here are the Saints that are in the top 50.

15. Drew Brees, QB, New Orleans Saints: He showed a lot skeptics — including this writer — that he wasn’t just a product of the San Diego offense. He really fits with Saints coach Sean Payton’s offense.
Drew Brees
Brees is the 4th ranked QB on the list. Ahead of him are:
1. Peyton Manning, QB, Indianapolis Colts
2. Tom Brady, QB, New England Patriots
5. Carson Palmer, QB, Cincinnati Bengals
Its hard to disagree with the decision to rank the above QB’s higher than Brees. He was ranked ahead of:
39. Donovan McNabb, QB, Philadelphia Eagles (only 5 QB’s are in the top 50)

24. Jammal Brown, T, New Orleans Saints: His move from the right side to the left side was a smooth one. It earned him his first trip to the Pro Bowl. He will be there for a lot of years.

Brown is the 2nd ranked T on the list behind:
6. Walter Jones, T, Seattle Seahawks
He was ranked ahead of:
42. Jonathan Ogden, T, Baltimore Ravens

27. Will Smith, DE, New Orleans Saints: Without him, the Saints defense would be in big trouble. When the opposing offense puts up points, he pins his ears and attacks. He’s a force off the edge.
