2015 NFL Free Agency:'s Chris Wesseling Puts Up a Top 25 Free Agent Big Board

Let's take a look at some of the potential offerings from across the league.

Chris Wesseling over at dropped a great free agency tool that let's you sort by team, by position and isolates the restricted free agents across the league. To go with it, he also put up a top-25 free agency big board. The obvious caveat is that it's too early in the timeline to take this all that seriously ahead of franchise tag designations and the reality that many of these players will get new deals with their previous employers.

In any case, here's his top 25:

  1. Ndamukong Suh (DT, Lions)
  2. Justin Houston (OLB, Chiefs)
  3. Dez Bryant (WR, Cowboys)
  4. Demaryius Thomas (WR, Broncos)
  5. Jason Pierre-Paul (DE, Giants)
  6. Julius Thomas (TE, Broncos)
  7. Mike Iupati (G, 49ers)
  8. Randall Cobb (WR, Packers)
  9. Devin McCourty (FS, Patriots)
  10. DeMarco Murray (RB, Cowboys)
  11. Jerry Hughes (DE, Bills)
  12. Jason Worilds (OLB, Steelers)
  13. Jared Odrick (DT, Dolphins)
  14. Pernell McPhee (OLB, Ravens)
  15. Terrance Knighton (DT, Broncos)
  16. Jeremy Maclin (WR, Eagles)
  17. Brandon Graham (OLB, Eagles)
  18. Torrey Smith (WR, Ravens)
  19. Greg Hardy (DE, Panthers)*
  20. Byron Maxwell (CB, Seahawks)
  21. C.J. Spiller (RB, Bills)
  22. Nick Fairley (DT, Lions)
  23. Brandon Flowers (CB, Chargers)
  24. Brian Orakpo (OLB, Washington)
  25. Jordan Cameron (TE, Browns)

* - Hardy is currently on the Commissioner's exempt list and is deactivated indefinitely

I won't take much issue with the rankings. Personally, I'd probably have Dez at the top. Julius Thomas would be a quite bit lower. And I'd likely have Fairley in the mid-teens.

For the Rams, this list has too much in the defensive front. If Iupati tests the market, you'd think the Rams would at least make some initial overtures. Perhaps one of the other wide receivers too, assuming at least one of them shops around.
