NFL's List of Top 100 Players in 2011 Includes 3 Dolphins, 10 Former Hurricanes

The NFL recently unveiled its list of the top 100 players for the 2011 season, and at least one football team in town is really, uncontrollably, super excited about it. No, it's not the one that actually plays in the NFL. The Dolphins placed three players on the list, but the Miami Hurricanes placed 10 former players on the list, including three in the top ten alone. The school got so excited they made a neat infographic about it. 

Warning: looking at this list might make you depressed as soon as you realize the current state of the team.

The Dolphins meanwhile didn't have much to Photoshop home about. Jake Long came in at number 27th, and was rated the best offensive tackle in the league. Brandon Marshall and Cameron Wake came it at 61 and 63 respectively.
