The list so far (since we love offseason lists):

9 - Luke Keuchly, linebacker, Panthers
10 - Roddy White, wide receiver, Falcons
11 - Ryan Kalil, center, Panthers
12 - Carl Nicks, guard, Buccaneers
13 - Darren Sproles, running back, Saints
14 - Charles Johnson, defensive end, Panthers
15 - Gerald McCoy, defensive tackle, Buccaneers
16 - Vincent Jackson, wide receiver, Buccaneers
17 - Tony Gonzalez, tight end, Falcons
18 - Dashon Goldson, safety, Buccaneers
19 - Sean Weatherspoon, linebacker, Falcons
20 - Lavonte David, linebacker, Buccaneers
21 - Steve Smith, wide receiver, Carolina Panthers
22 - Steven Jackson, running back, Atlanta Falcons
23 - Josh Freeman, quarterback, Tampa Bay Buccaneers
24 - Marques Colston, wide receiver, New Orleans Saints
25 - Da'Quan Bowers, defensive end, Tampa Bay Buccaneers
 

Still waiting for spots:

 

Matt Ryan, quarterback, Falcons
Julio Jones, wide receiver, Falcons
Drew Brees, quarterback, Saints

Jimmy Graham, tight end, Saints
Jahri Evans, offensive guard, Saints

Cam Newton, quarterback, Panthers
Greg Hardy, defensive end, Panthers
Jon Beason, linebacker, Panthers

Doug Martin, running back, Buccaneers
Darrelle Revis, cornerback, Buccaneers
 

I'm kind of feeling like Cam is the only remaining Panther that's going to make it.  And it looks like Yas thinks the Bucs have 9 out of the top 25 players in the South.

I don't think I will argue with his top 10 but Doug Martin being a top 10 player already is anointing him too fast.  His love for the Bucs isn't surprising though.

He's already talked about what a great season Martin is going to have now that Nicks is back.

23 - Josh Freeman

I don't think TB management even rates him that high.

Isn't that the truth? They rate him so high they drafted his replacement.

I find it comical that Hardy wont make this list yet Bowers is 25th with a whomping three sacks last season.

Pretty accurate IMO so far.  I hate to say it but Steven Jackson should be higher.

Its just pure BS if Bowers is ranked on the list and Hardy is not on it.

Yup and his reasoning for Bowers was strictly based on his potential this year. Sure, Bowers has the ability to get 10+ sacks this season if he can manage to stay healthy for the first time, but you're telling me Hardy in a contract year with the additions of Star and Short and better depth at DT all around doesn't scream potential to get 10 maybe 15+ sacks? He already broke 10 last year.

Olsen is a better TE than Gonzalez at this point. Olsen has to actually get open, where Tony G pushes his way off into the endzone.

 

Also Darren Sproles isn't as good Jonathan Stewart and actually I think Deangelo Williams is still better than Sproles even at his age.
