(9) K.J. Wright, OLB – Such a complete combo linebacker with great length and smarts, as evidenced by his uncanny ability to snuff out all misdirection (screen passes). As dependable as it gets.

(8) Russell Wilson, QB – Ok, ok. He can’t see the middle of the field well and never will be a great – or even consistent – three-step slant thrower between the hash marks. That’s true and fair criticism, but that’s all you get. I’ll take the speed, arm strength, sixth sense/Houdini plays out of the pocket, insatiable drive to be the best quarterback he possibly can be, the gorgeous long ball, numerous fourth quarter and overtime comebacks, and the big ol’ dogpile of playoff wins.

(7) Jimmy Graham, TE – Let’s face it: he’s one-dimensional, but that dimension is dominant. Possibly the most feared red zone threat in the NFL.

(6) Bobby Wagner, MLB – Speaks softly, hits hard, leads in tackles and uses 4.4 speed to carry out his brand of justice in the middle of the field. A superstar who truly earned his second contract.

*(5) Kam Chancellor, SS – Can someone explain to me why Kam Chancellor wasn’t asked to play Thor in those comic book movies? Is it the short haircut? The words his peers use to describe him are “godfather,” “enforcer,” and “soul of the team.” All are accurate. Possibly the most respected player in a locker room full of alpha-males that aren’t easy to impress, there is no more feared safety in football that combines brains and intimidation with sheer brawn to destroy aerial and ground advances alike.  (Chancellor currently does not count as part of the 53-man roster and is on the Reserve/Did Not Report list)
