ESPN Scouts Inc. Top 200: Ryan Clady Leads Five Denver Broncos

ESPN's Scouts Inc. released its Top 200 NFL players and there are no Denver Broncos on the top 50. Left tackle Ryan Clady is the first Broncos to appear, which comes at No. 60 (Insider subscription required). He has "rare athleticism and excellent foot quickness" among other attributes.

The next player to appear on the list is just four spots down at No. 64: cornerback Champ Bailey. Even at 33 years old, Bailey is still a top cornerback in the league. Now healthy, Elvis Dumervil is ranked No. 108 and ready for a standout season on the defensive line. Linebacker D.J. Williams is next at No. 134 and is praised for his improving skills on reading the quarterback in coverage.

Wide receiver Brandon Lloyd had a breakout season in 2010 with the Broncos, leading the league in receiving yards with over 1,400. But that doesn't mean he is one of the top players in the league. He checks in at No. 151 because he "failed to take care of the little things in the offseason to prepare himself." Leading the league in receiving yardage is unlikely given head coach John Fox's commitment to the running game. Still, he is the team's No. 1 receiver.
