PFT ranks the top 100 free agents of 2014

With the new league year beginning in just six days, PFT has posted its ranking of the top 100 free agents in the Class of 2014.

The following factors, among other criteria, were considered in compiling the ratings: Position value, age (as of Sept. 1, 2014), expected 2014 performance, 2013 performance, career production, injury/availability history and scarcity of talent expected at the position in free agency. Feedback from the PFT staff and NFL evaluators was also weighed in the rankings.

The rankings consider prospective unrestricted and restricted free agents as well as recently released free agents. We have included unsigned franchise and transition free agents, including Saints tight end Jimmy Graham. Though teams were selective with their usage of the tags this offseason, they generally did well to designate some of the very best prospective free agents leaguewide, with Graham, Carolina’s Greg Hardy (signed) and Washington’s Brian Orakpo three obvious examples.

So go ahead, click on the link to the rankings and give us your thoughts in the comments.

Can you believe it? Free agency — the unofficial start of spring — is almost upon us.

    So many viking players want out. Imagine that.

    In three years just like with every FA class we’ll look back and laugh at all the money these teams wasted.

    I think Everson Griffin could be a monster. I hope he stays in Minnesota.

    TJ Ward might be the best player on this list but he is where he is because he’s a strong safety. Looking over the list I can see scheme fit, injury history, and position value figure in heavily.

    TJ Ward is lower on the list than he should be though, to have Eric Decker at 8 with Ward at 20 just doesn’t sit right with me.

    Did anyone watch Talib get absolutely destroyed by Josh Gordon? He gave up 200 yards, there is no excuse for that. Him bring so high is hilarious.

    Josh Freeman? You think a 3rd team will fix it?

    Already a given Bengals won’t resign Michael Johnson, he’ll get paid very well. Not that it’s a worry, I’d rather the Bengals put that money in AJ Green next year.

    Byrd should be higher than 12. He will be sought after big time.

    Surprised Edelman wasn’t higher on the list. He’s absolutely more of a game-changer than Golden Tate if not others higher on there.
