Browns Players Not Cracking ESPN's Top Ten

New, comments

During the month of March, ESPN has been doing some "top ten power rankings" for a few positions. So far, they have done running backs, wide receivers, tight ends, and pass rushers. None of the players on the Browns cracked the top ten, and I think the player who came closest to getting screwed was running back Peyton Hillis. Here are the rankings:

Running Backs | Wide Receivers | Tight Ends | Pass Rushers

Hillis only received a ninth place vote from one person, putting him in 14th place with a small sample size of votes. I think he should have been over Frank Gore, Lesean McCoy, and Darren McFadden. It's interesting to see how a guy like Steven Jackson had mixed views from opposite ends of the voting totem (fourth place for many, around tenth place for others).

The other Brown to even be mentioned was tight end Ben Watson. Watson received a seventh place vote from the same person who voted for Hillis, Mr. Tim Graham. You can thank him for even getting any Browns players on the board.
