Fox Sports yearly list of the NFL’s top 100 players is out and Raiders CB Nnamdi Asomugha came in at No. 13, down one spot from last year. Asomugha was rated the second best corner in the NFL, behind only Darrelle Revis, who Fox Sports rated No. 7. Asomugha was the only Raider to crack Fox Sports Top 100 list.
Here is what the article has to say about Oakland’s Pro Bowl cornerback:
Though he’s never played for a team that’s won more than six games in a season, Nnamdi Asomugha continues to be recognized as one of the NFL’s top defensive players. A three-time Pro Bowler and three-time All-Pro selection, Asomugha is rarely challenged, keeping his fellow corners very busy on a weekly basis. If we aren’t going to consider “off-the-field” issues for Ben Roethlisberger, we probably shouldn’t weigh in the off-the-field life of Asomugha. Ah, maybe we should. On top of being one of the best corners in the game, he’s also one of the league’s top ambassadors.
