With the NFL season, draft and free agency over, The Game Haus is ranking the top 100 players.
Six TGH staff members voted on their top 75 players, who were given scores based on their ranks, then sorted by their final score. The players were ranked regardless of position, and the editors broke any ties at their discretion.
Each article in this series will list ten players at a time, with brief comments on their 2019 performances and what is expected of them in 2020. Make sure to check back every Monday, Wednesday and Friday of May for the next list!
Today, players 90-81 are listed and evaluated.
90. DeVante Parker
Parker had his best season in 2019, despite being on a rebuilding team. His targets, receptions, yards and touchdowns were all the highest of his career last season, as veteran Ryan Fitzpatrick led the offense. These numbers will likely hold up if he stays healthy, as Fitzpatrick is expected to take the reins again as Tagovailoa returns to full strength. – Ben Hendricks
89. D.J. Reader
88. Maxx Crosby
Crosby had a huge freshman campaign with the Raiders. In his first year in the league, he racked up 10 sacks, four passes defended and four forced fumbles. He also totaled 47 combined tackles from the defensive end position. He can be a premiere pass rusher in this league if this production continues. – Ben Hendricks
87. Terron Armstead
A Pro Bowler for the second year in a row in 2019, Terron Armstead continues to protect Drew Brees‘ blind side at a high level. He also had the healthiest season of his career, playing and starting in 15 of 16 games. The veteran will return to try and deliver Brees another Super Bowl in 2020. – Ben Hendricks
86. Darren Waller
Waller had his breakout season last year with the Raiders. There are only a small handful of tight ends in the league that are truly game-changing, but Waller showed he was last season. With another year under Jon Gruden and Derek Carr, Waller could take another step forward in his career. – Joe DiTullio
85. Erik McCoy
McCoy was a second-round pick in the 2019 NFL Draft, but has already shown that he is one of the best interior linemen in the league. His job is critical, as Drew Brees is aging, but the young center has shown he is up for the task in both pass blocking and run blocking. – Joe DiTullio
84. Joe Thuney
The Patriots know how to develop players well and that is exactly what they have done with Thuney. Thuney is a former third-round pick who has developed into one of the best guards in the game. – Joe DiTullio
83. Chris Harris, Jr.
Harris is starting to age, but he is still one of the best corners in the league. His ability to completely dominate his matchup is what makes him great. He joined the Chargers this offseason, which should make them one of the best secondaries in the NFL. – Joe DiTullio
82. Alex Mack
Since entering the league in 2009, Alex Mack has made the Pro Bowl six times. He is one of the best centers in the entire league, and has only missed 11 games in his career. Now he will have a chance to block for a hopefully resurgent Todd Gurley. – Ben Hendricks
81. Brandon Graham
Graham has been a centerpiece of the Eagles’ defense he was drafted there in 2010. Never a Pro Bowl selection, he continues to grind and produce steadily on the end of the defensive line. The Eagles hope he will be able to stay healthy for all 16 games for two years in a row when the 2020 season begins. – Ben Hendricks
