Top 10 NFL Free Agents

Wild on Sports
Top Ten NFL Free Agents

With NFL free agency set to open in just a few hours lets take a look at the top ten players in this year's free agent class and project their final destinations. Who will your team get?

1. Dashon Goldson, FS, 49ers: Has been to two consecutive Pro Bowls. Both a ball hawk and a guy who can put a lick on you. A much younger Ed Reed type. Will command a pretty penny. All the talk around the league points to the Eagles. The 49ers would love to keep him, particularly with the Seahawks just picking up Percy Harvin. May be out of San Fan's price range though.
Projected Team: Eagles  Other in Contention - 49ers,

2. Cliff Avril, DE, Lions: Avril will likely be bringing in the biggest money this off-season even if he isn't necessarily the best player in the group. He is young and has produced 29 sacks over the past 3 seasons. Some scouts think he is fast enough to stand up and play some LB which would certainly make him more useful to some teams. 
Projected Team: Colts   Others in Contention: Browns

3. Greg Jennings, WR, Packers: Great hands, great route runner. A little surprised the Packers did not make a little harder push to try to resign him before free agency opened. He will be a great offensive weapon for anyone who lands him.
Projected Team -  Vikings  Others in Contention - Packers, Patriots

4. Mike Wallace, WR, Steelers: He is the speedy deep threat that a lot of teams would love to have. Is coming off a bit of a down year but is young and poised for a rebound. All the talk around the league is that Miami is prepared to throw big money at him. Hope it works out better than the Brandon Marshall experiment.
Projected Team: Dolphins  Others in Contention - Patriots

5. Paul Kruger, OLB, Ravens: Had a breakout season for the defending champs that will earn him a pay check. Fairly versatile so teams can play him at LB or DE. Browns seem poised to make some noise this off-season. Has also been linked to Indy.
Projected Team: Browns  Other in Contention - Colts

6. Wes Welker, WR, Patriots:  The first of a Patriots heavy free agent class. Welker is the most productive WR on the market - whether that is due to Tom Brady or his skill is a fair argument. In the end he will realize that and stay in New England.
Projected Team: Patriots  Others in Contention: Broncos, Dolphins, Packers

 7. Aqib Talib, CB, Patriots:  Big, physical defenders like Talib are in high demand so there will be a strong market for him. He's the best of a deep group of corners this year. Ultimately, the Patriots need him the most. With other options out there it may drag his price down a bit, particularly if he is not one of the first at his position to sign.
Projected Team: Patriots  Others in Contention: Eagles, Redskins, 49ers

8. Steven Jackson, RB, Rams:  The workhorse back has piled up a lot of mileage on his legs during his time in St. Louis but still has the power to be a difference maker in the backfield for many teams. He has been strongly linked to Atlanta where he would fill the roll left by the cut Michael Turner getting about 1/2 the workload but very valuable around the goal line.
Projected Team: Falcons  Others in Contention:  Lions, Cardinals, Packers, Steelers

9. Sebastian Vollmer, T, Patriots: A very reliable pass blocker. With Vollmer, Jake Long and Andre Smith all on the market teams looking for o-line help will have plenty of options.
Projected Team: Patriots  Others in Contention: Rams, Chargers, Bears

10. Jake Long, T, Dolphins: As mentioned with Vollmer, the tackle class is very top heavy. Three guys who will all be looking for big money. It will be interesting to see where the dust settles.
Projected Team: Bears  Others in Contention: Rams, Dolphins

Other Noteworthy Players:
Andre Smith, T, Bengals
Michael Bennett, DE, Buccaneers
Jake Long, T, Dolphins
Tony Gonzalez. TE, Falcons
Sean Smith, CB, Dolphins
Brent Grimes, CB
Danny Amendola, WR, Rams
John Abraham, DE, Falcons
Ed Reed, S, Ravens
Jared Cook, TE, Titans
Dwight Freeney, DE, Colts
Reggie Bush, RB, Dolphins
