NFL's top 10 players in 2014

I've had some time to think about Aaron Rodgers' cohorts voting him the NFL's 11th-best player. And I'm angrier than ever that the Packers star was disrespected like that. So I created my own top-10 list ahead of the Wednesday night finale (airing at 9 p.m. ET) of NFL Network's "Top 100 Players of 2014." (Players -- what do they know?)

The goal is simple: Name the top 10 players in 2014. Not 2013, 2015 or 2016 -- 2014. That's it.

A few housekeeping notes:

» Patrick Peterson was my toughest omission; he'd rank No. 11. He's a fantastic corner and a true difference maker on special teams. Just about to turn 24, he's only getting better.

» LeSean McCoy and Jamaal Charles rank 12th and 13th, respectively, with Jimmy Graham trailing just behind.

» I really wanted to have the guts to include Andrew Luck. I bet he'll make it next year.
