Last week the power rankings focused on defensive players, and Detroit Lions defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh was ranked just outside of the top 10. This week Lions wide receiver Calvin Johnson is not only in the top 10, but he is also in the top five. Here is the list:

1t. Chris Johnson

1t. Adrian Peterson

3. Andre Johnson

4. Larry Fitzgerald

5. Calvin Johnson

6. Roddy White

7. Maurice Jones-Drew

8. Jake Long

9. Joe Thomas

10t. Jamaal Charles

10t. Antonio Gates

Calvin Johnson received a vote from all eight of the people that put together the list. He was ranked as high as fourth and as low as 10th. He and the other players in the top five are the only ones to receive a vote from all eight people.
