FoxSports.com came up with a list of the NFL's Top 100 Players of 2010, and six players on the Baltimore Ravens made the list. In fact not only did the Ravens have six of the Top 100 players, they actually had six of the Top 74, and four of the Top 47. Any guesses before you read on who were those six Ravens? No peeking!
The top five players unfortunately did not include any Ravens. Counting down from #5 through #1, the list goes: Tennessee Titans RB Chris Johnson, Pittsburgh Steelers QB Ben Roethlisberger (what!?), New England Patriot QB Tom Brady, New Orleans Saints QB Drew Brees and Indianapolis COlts QB Peyton Manning.

74. WR Anquan Boldin - Boldin was rated higher in 2009 (I can't seem to find the list of #'s 61-80 to get the exact number of what Boldin was ranked last season), when he was catching passes from future Hall of Famer Kurt Warner.
64. DT Haloti Ngata - I thought he might be rated a bit higher, but then again, not so bad for an interior lineman.
47. QB Joe Flacco - Interesting that Joe was rated higher than Carson Palmer, Donovan McNabb and Matt Schaub. Guess three playoff wins on the road in your first two years sort of helps, huh? Also interesting is that #46 is Brett Favre, but then again Matt Ryan is #36, so go figure?
32. RB Ray Rice - Out of nowhere from a year ago, Rice rockets up to near the head of the class and most Ravens' fans believe he will be a lot higher ranked after 2010.
20. ILB Ray Lewis - Ray is the highest rated Raven on the list and while it is still a huge honor for a 14 year veteran who will be 35 years old when the 2010 season begins, he is behind the San Francisco 49ers' Patrick Willis, who is known around the league as the "next Ray Lewis."
