Some interesting notes about the full list of players can be found after the jump.

  • DT Nick Fairley and TE Tony Scheffler were the two players outside of the top 10 who received a first-place vote.
  • Of the 47 players who received at least one vote, 21 play on offense, 23 play on defense and three are special teamers.
  • Seven of this year's eight draft picks received at least one vote. OT Riley Reiff had the most points (141) and came in at No. 19 on the list. CB Jonte Green was the lone draft pick who didn't receive a single vote.
  • QB Kellen Moore and WR Patrick Edwards each received one vote for 10th place. They are the only two undrafted free agents to appear on the list.
  • LS Don Muhlbach came in 27th thanks to having 41 points. He appeared on a total of 14 ballots and actually had two people vote him as high as fourth in their top 10.
  • P Ryan Donahue came in tied for 41st thanks to receiving two votes for 10th place.

All in all, I'd say this was a pretty interesting series. It took a lot of work to sort through and put together the results, but it's cool to see what Lions fans think about where the players rank on the roster. Expect this series to return again next offseason.
