Two Atlanta Falcons have cracked the NFL Network’s Top 100 Players of 2013 countdown: Tony Gonzalez was the first Falcon to appear at 47, and Roddy White came in at 39.
Last year, Gonzalez was ranked 46, and White was ranked 65.
Although their rankings are in the upper half of the list, I would argue both Gonzalez and White are underrated; in fact, the voters on NFL.com would agree as they’ve voted both players as underrated.
There will likely be two more Falcons to appear on the list: Julio Jones and Matt Ryan. Strangely enough, neither Jones nor Ryan appeared on the list last season. (I called it “unjust disrespect.”)
