Leon Halip

A look back at our list of the top 10 Detroit Lions players of 2013.

As revealed on Tuesday, wide receiver Calvin Johnson is the No. 1 Detroit Lions player of 2013, according to readers of this site. 1,051 ballots were submitted for our Top 10 Lions of 2013 series, and Johnson ran away with the No. 1 spot for the second year in a row.

Now that the entire top 10 has been unveiled, you can take a look at the points breakdown for it below. (The number of first-place votes each player received, if any, is listed in parentheses.)

Top 10 Lions of 2013
1. WR Calvin Johnson (659) 9,796 points
2. QB Matthew Stafford (343) 9,378 points
3. DT Ndamukong Suh (11) 6,863 points
4. RB Reggie Bush (8) 6,442 points

Some notes about the top 10:

  • Seven of the players in the top 10 received at least one first-place vote.

  • All but 49 of the first-place votes went to either Calvin Johnson or Matthew Stafford.

  • Not one single player was included on all 1,051 ballots. Stafford came the closest by appearing on all but four of the ballots.

  • Reggie Bush and Glover Quin were the only players new to the Lions who made the top 10 this year.

  • An equal number of offensive and defensive players made the top 10 (five each).

In the coming days, we'll take a look at all of the players who received votes by examining the top 10 and beyond.
