By David F. WalkerCNN.com — Every year, we put together a ranking of the top 100 players in each position group in the National Football League.
It’s a fun way to compare teams and players across the league.
But last year, ESPN released a new rankings of the most influential college football players in 2017.
They were more than half a dozen players who made the list, but only four of those were on the list this year.
We asked the players to share their top-ranked position group on Twitter, Facebook, or Instagram, and we asked how their picks differed from each other.
Some were pretty interesting, and a few were downright baffling.
We’ll try to cover them all in one article.
First, let’s get the numbers out of the way: This year’s top-100 ranked position group has nine players in it, and two of them were from Alabama.
In fact, only two players made the top-five, and all three of those players are from the same conference.
That leaves only two teams with nine players, and that’s Auburn and Mississippi State.
The SEC is down to five with four of them from the conference.
And while Alabama and Mississippi were both very close last year with five of the best-ranked players from the SEC on the team, this year the SEC is in trouble, as two of the SEC’s top five players are not on the Crimson Tide team.
In terms of total number of positions, LSU is down by five positions to five, and Auburn is down four positions to three.
And, yes, Auburn has one player who made it to the top five, but he’s from a conference other than the SEC.
So even though Alabama and LSU have one player on the roster, that doesn’t mean that they’re going to have the same amount of depth at every position.
It’s not like they’re missing any of the greats either.
The Tigers have two players on the top 25 ranked positions, and one of those is the nation’s No. 2 ranked player.
But they’re also missing two other guys, one of which is ranked No. 6.
That leaves them with only three players ranked in the top 50.
And while that’s not a ton of depth, it does give us a good idea of where the rest of the conference stands.
It also provides us a chance to figure out who’s likely to have a strong year next year, since we’re not yet in the midst of the recruiting season.
And this doesn’t even take into account the fact that all of the position groups are pretty balanced, with Alabama having the best depth in all of them.
The Crimson Tide have five players in their top 25, and four of the five are from their conference.
In addition, Alabama has the most players ranked at all of their positions, with nine.
That’s not bad.
And in terms of recruiting depth, the Tigers have the most talented players in all positions, even though the Tide has two of their top three players on their team.
And they’re still in a position where the recruiting cycle is the most important part of their season.
And that means that, in terms for a position group, it’s not really about depth.
It might be about where you are recruiting players, but it’s about your depth at each position.
The top-25 ranking isn’t necessarily indicative of who is the best player, and it’s certainly not the case that Alabama is the top player.
That honor goes to Clemson, which has the best overall talent in the country, but that’s really only because of the talent at the top.
That group has a very strong defensive front, and they also have a really strong offensive line.
But that doesn and likely won’t matter this year, as the Tigers are probably going to get a few more first-round picks than last year.
And even if that does happen, it’ll probably be for a different reason than Alabama.
The second tier of the rankings is actually a little less stacked, with the SEC getting a few of its top-rated players from outside the conference, like Clemson and Alabama.
But those two teams still have a lot of holes to fill at defensive end, and Alabama and Clemson will be facing some tough decisions with those positions this year as well.
The fourth tier of position groups is a little bit more balanced, but even that group doesn’t have the depth that Alabama or Clemson does.
The top-three of the list from the ACC is Florida State and Georgia, but the ACC’s top three are Georgia, Virginia, and North Carolina.
That means that the ACC could potentially have more depth at defensive tackle than the ACC, but North Carolina is one of the only teams in the ACC to have five defensive linemen.
The fifth tier is a bit more crowded, but Clemson and North Florida are the only three teams in that tier that have a top-10 player, so that’s the best
