Almost doesn't count.

But there are a lot of players that are almost to the top, but just haven't made it over the hump. I know who they are and you know who they are. There are a lot of them.

The problem? We have a hard time being realistic when we are talking about talent.

We tend to use the words "great" and "excellent" for more than what is deserving.

More players should be "average" or "slightly above average" because that is more accurate relative to their skills.

These players on this list are Top 10 in their position and are more than likely Top Five. 

So in reference, these players that I am about to talk about are "above average," but still not elite level talent.

So thank you for reading and please enjoy.
