Data Points: Is Jennings underrated in ‘Top 100’?

One of the intriguing topics of conversation surrounding the “Top 100 Players of 2011” list has been the wide-receiver position. For starters, some NFL Network analysts think that there are far too many on the list. But one of those wideout’s spots on the list is particularly notable.

Greg Jennings, arguably one of the best players in the game, has 14 receivers ahead of him on the list, and he was ranked 74th overall by his peers. Hmm … 14 guys better than Aaron Rodgers‘ most dangerous target?

Jennings always has been considered a big-play guy, so perhaps it’s best to judge him on such data: big plays. When talking “big plays” and wide receivers, it all comes back to touchdowns. Although the Wes Welkers and Danny Amendolas of the world are the masters of the 6-yard in, the receivers below get into the end zone.

It looks like Jennings’ supporters have a beef.
