Writer Pete Prisco of CBSSports.com pick sthe best 50 NFL players. Prisco's first five are: 1. Tom Brady, QB, New England Patriots; 2. Peyton Manning, QB, Indianapolis Colts; 3. LaDainian Tomlinson, RB, San Diego Chargers; 4. Randy Moss, WR, New England Patriots; 5. Champ Bailey, CB, Denver Broncos. Of Moss, Prisco says: "Talk about resurrecting a reputation. He wasn't on many top 50 lists a year ago. Now he's a top 10 player." Mario Williams is an interesting pick at No. 6. At 50 Prisco picks, Devin Hester of the Chicago Bears as a kicker returner. Prisco says: "I don't normally put return men on these lists, but this guy has earned it. It will be interesting to see how long he can maintain it." I will tell you right now, Josh Cribbs of the Cleveland Browns is a better returner. In fact, pro-football-reference.com's Chase Stuart wrote about this recently.
