Lists are what summertime modern NFL media is all about.

Chris Simms had his curious look at the NFL’s top QBs.

NFL Network is about to unveil its annual list of the league’s top 100 players.

Lists make social media, talk radio and website clicks explode.

But anyone can list the top players by position or across the league. That’s too easy.

We’d prefer to do something a bit more challenging, something that not even Bill Belichick has to do. So, let’s go ahead and rank the Patriots roster from 1 (guess who???) to 90 (sorry, someone has to be last) as New England prepares to open yet another training camp as a defending Super Bowl Champion.
