Calvin Johnson at #5 in ESPN's Top 10 Offensive Players List

Last week we saw Ndamukong Suh land just outside of ESPN's Top 10 Defensive Player List. Now the top 10 offensive players list is out and Calvin Johnson has cracked the top 10 (#5 to be exact).

Here is the top 10:

T-1. Chris Johnson (70) - 2 First Place Votes
T-1. Adrian Peterson (70) - 4 First Place Votes
3. Andre Johnson (64) - 2 First Place Votes
4. Larry Fitzgerald (50)
5. Calvin Johnson (36)
6. Roddy White (32)
7. Maurice Jones-Drew (20)
8. Jake Long (17)
9. Joe Thomas (16)
T-10. Jamaal Charles (13)
T-10. Antonio Gates (13)

The highest position CJ was rated was #4 by three votes and the lowest was #10 by one voter (must be a Bears fan).  He came ranked #3 out of the 6 Wide Receivers who got votes.  10 other players got votes below 13, which are: Reggie Wayne (7), Jason Witten (7), Michael Turner (6), Arian Foster (6), DeSean Jackson (6), Nick Mangold (3), Greg Jennings (2), Steven Jackson (1), and Dallas Clark (1). Three offensive linemen made the list and two (Long and Thomas) made the top ten.

Also interesting is that when the same voters made the list of the top 10 NFL Receivers, the top five were 1. Andre Johnson, 2. Larry Fitzgerald, 3. Roddy White, 4. Calvin Johnson, 5. Reggie Wayne. I guess adding running backs to the equation bumped CJ above Roddy White.

Do you guys agree with the order in with the ESPN "experts" ranked these players? If not, what changes would you make?
