Seattle Seahawks DE Chris Clemons Rates As Team's Top Player, According To Scouts Inc.

Seattle Seahawks defensive end Chris Clemons highlights a select group of players on the team that made the Scouts Inc. list of the NFL's Top 200 players.

The former Georgia Bulldog had an outstanding year in 2011, recording 34 solo tackles, 11.0 sacks, and three forced fumbles. Earl Thomas (No. 120), Marshawn Lynch (No. 131), and Red Bryant (No. 194) rounded out the group of Seahawks that made the list. Clemons was ranked at No. 105.

The NFC West had a large presence on the list as a whole and boasted three of the top 12 players, including the 49ers' Patrick Willis and Justin Smith, along with Larry Fitzgerald of the Arizona Cardinals. That's an impressive statistic, considering that the NFC consists of eight divisions.

Despite that fact, the Seahawks had the fewest players on the list of any NFC West team.

The Scouts Inc. rankings annually rate the top players in the NFL and are widely considered to be among the most thorough systems to rate talent.
