Top 10 player rankings revisited

Back in June, PB put out his list of top 10 players on this year's squad.  Here's a recap of what it was as well as stats so far:

10. Tie - Sergio Kindle/John Chiles - Kindle's Stats - 30 tackles, 7 tfl, 6 sacks, 4 hurries

9. Vondrell McGee - 270 yards, 2 tds, 49 yards receiving

8. Colt McCoy - 2285 yards, 21 tds, 4 ints, 412 yards rushing, 7 rushing TDs

7. Roy Miller - 27 tackles, 4 tfl, 2 hurries

6. Quan Cosby - 56 rec, 688 yards, 4 tds

5. Roddrick Muckelroy - 80 tackles, 2.5 ftl, 1 fumble return for TD, 3 pass breakups

4. Ryan Bailey - 5 PATs

3. Deon Beasley - 19 tackles, 1 pass breakup

2. Brian Orakpo - 30 tackles, 8.5 sacks, 2 pass breakups, 3 forced fumbles, 11 hurries

1. Lamarr Houston - 18 tackles, 1 sack, 3 pass breakups, 5 hurries

 

After nine weeks of the season, the cream has risen to the top.   While I don't believe in bashing anyone for their performances thus far, its surprising to see how some of our "sure bets" have turned out.  Additionally, I think that taking another look at this ranking at the 3/4 mark of the season should drive home the notion of how close the Horns are to putting together an amazing string of seasons over the next few years.   Here's my top 10 as it stands now:

 

10. Chris Ogbonnaya - 323 yards rushing, 3 rushing TDs, 35 rec, 432 yards receiving, 3 rec TDs,

9. Quan Cosby - 56 rec, 688 yards, 4 tds, several huge blocks

8. Earl Thomas - 46 tackles, 7 pass breakups,  1 hurry, 2 INTs, 3 forced fumbles, 1 blocked punt/FG,  

7. Roy Miller - 27 tackles, 4 tfl, 2 hurries

6. Chykie Brown - 22 tackles, 2 tfl, 1 sack, 5 pass breakups,

5. Sergio Kindle - 30 tackles, 7 tfl, 6 sacks, 4 hurries

4. Roddrick Muckelroy - 80 tackles, 2.5 ftl, 1 fumble return for TD, 3 pass breakups

3. Jordan Shipley - 64 recs, 779 yards, 10 TDs, 1 Punt return for TD, 1 KO return for TD

2. Brian Orakpo - 30 tackles, 8.5 sacks, 2 pass breakups, 3 forced fumbles, 11 hurries

1. Colt McCoy - 2285 yards, 21 tds, 4 ints, 412 yards rushing, 7 rushing TDs

 

There have been some surprises (Shipley, Chykie), some dissapointments (Deion Beasley), and some questions - like what to make of Lamarr Houston's move to DT.  It's also worth noting that there have been some stellar performances from some not in this list - Malcolm Williams, Curtis Brown, Blake Gideon.  With only 4 seniors on this list, the future is bright.
