Reigning Defensive Player of the Year Stephon Gilmore will be among those anointed as the best in the game by the very unscientific, criticism-worthy NFLN list. Though the list is technically voted on by players, the ranking is rife with questionable slottings.

It’s certainly worth a discussion as to whether the Patriots should have had a player – Julian Edelman, Devin McCourty and Joe Thuney would seem realistic candidates – in the first 90 slots on the list of the NFL’s best.

But, in saving the best for last, at least New England’s No. 1 cornerback Gilmore will get the attention and recognition he clearly deserves. Tune in tonight to find out just how high the Patriots No. 24 lands in the top 10.
