PFT Top 100: Carl Nicks, Doug Martin make an appearance

Matt Stamey-US PRESSWIRE

Another outlet starts a top 100 list, and two Buccaneers appear on the first installment.

Pro Football Talk can't resist: they're starting a top 100 list players list, as well. They polled media members and asked them to list their top 50 players. The result: yet another list. They've started with numbers 76 through 100, and two Tampa Bay Buccaneers make the list: running back Doug Martin at 77 and guard Carl Nicks at 79.

Martin seems to be ranked a little low, given that he came in at number 57 in the NFL's Top 100 list and racked up more yards from scrimmage than all but two NFL players. Those two players are Adrian Peterson and Calvin Johnson, and they're basically guaranteed to come in in the top 10.

Carl Nicks' listing is more of a surprise, though. The guard was completely absent from the players' list. In fact, that list named just two interior linemen in Max Unger And Logan Mankins. In fact, that entire list seemed to ignore linemen in general. Nicks is one of the very best guards in the NFL, though, despite missing half of last season with a toe injury. When healthy, very few linemen can match his dominance.
