Here's a top 100 player list with 4 Kansas City Chiefs players

No one's denying the Kansas City Chiefs have some talented players on their roster.


Last week we wondered how Pro Football Focus left KC Chiefs running back Jamaal Charles off of their list of the top 101 players from the 2012 season. Charles finished the season fourth in the NFL in rushing with 1,509 yards. Yet he wasn't on the list. And Chiefs fans made their displeasure known.

Now for something different: a list of the top 100 players which includes for KC Chiefs players. Here's who CBS Sports' Pete Prisco places in his top 100 players list:

53. Jamaal Charles
79. Derrick Johnson
85. Justin Houston
95. Brandon Flowers

This is my kinda list. Charles, DJ and Flowers are all appropriately ranked. I might argue Flowers should be higher than that but he's close. Houston seems maybe, possibly ranked a step too high but is very young and very good. The 2013 season will help tell us whether Houston is going to be a solid player or a great player.

Flowers was also featured on NFL Network's top 100 players list.
