Pro Football Focus is counting down their top 101 players of the 2014 season, and there are more than a handful of New England Patriots to make the list. You can click the above link to read their analysis on why these players ranked the way they did- I highly recommend perusing- and I've included PFF's "key stat" for each player. There is some really interesting information.

40. LB Jamie Collins

Key Stat: No inside linebacker had as many pressures as the 26 Collins managed.

33. S Devin McCourty

Key Stat: Had the highest grade of all safeties in the playoffs.

29. CB Darrelle Revis

Key Stat: Allowed a reception for every 15.5 snaps in coverage, seventh-best mark of all cornerbacks.

27. QB Tom Brady

Key Stat: Owner of fourth-highest passer grade during regular season.

23. LB Dont'a Hightower

Key Stat: Earned the second-highest grade of all inside linebackers during the regular season.

11. TE Rob Gronkowski

Key Stat: Led all tight ends with a 2.44 Yards Per Route Run number.

And those are the players in their top 101. Do you think they missed anyone? Anyone ranked too highly? Let us know in the comments!
