Post Pro Football Focus' Top 101 for 2013
I posted PFF's "criteria for selection" at the very bottom.

1. J.J. Watt, DE, Houston Texans (1st)
2. Robert Quinn, DE, St Louis Rams (Unranked)
3. Peyton Manning, QB, Denver Broncos (7th)
4. Gerald McCoy, DT, Tampa Bay Buccaneers (20th)
5. Lavonte David, LB, Tampa Bay Buccaneers (82nd)
6. Richard Sherman, CB, Seattle Seahawks (5th)
7. Evan Mathis, OG, Philadelphia Eagles (6th)
8. LeSean McCoy, RB, Philadelphia Eagles (Unranked)
9. Andrew Whitworth, OL, Cincinnati Bengals (Unranked)
10. Marshawn Lynch, RB, Seattle Seahawks (40th)

23. Brent Grimes, CB, Miami Dolphins (Unranked)
32. Brandon Marshall, WR, Chicago Bears (30th)
46. Cameron Wake, DE, Miami Dolphins (8th)
55. Randy Starks, DT, Miami Dolphins (Unranked)

59. Karlos Dansby, LB, Arizona Cardinals (Unranked)
99. Jake Long, OT, St. Louis Rams (Unranked)

23. Brent Grimes, CB, Miami Dolphins (Unranked)
It’s hard to explain why it’s taken Grimes so long to get the credit he deserves. We mean if the guy was a first round pick surely there’d be a lot more press about the impressive seasons he’s put together. In any case Grimes rebounded from missing nearly all of 2012 with a fine first year in Miami where he locked down the left side of the field and earned the third-highest regular season grade of all cornerbacks in coverage. A model of consistency (except for some woeful tackling against Cincinnati), he was flagged for just two penalties all year.
Best Performance: Week 2, MIA @ IND, +4.9
Key Stat: Grimes didn’t allow any touchdowns into his primary coverage all year (vs. four interceptions).

46. Cameron Wake, DE, Miami Dolphins (8th)
What makes this ranking all the more impressive is that Wake would pick up an injury in Week 2 that limited his playing time to just 72 snaps between Weeks 3 and 9. Far from ideal after his hot start to the year (10 quarterback disruptions in Week 1), Wake made up for lost time the remainder of the year to finish with the second highest pass rushing grade of all 4-3 defensive ends. It may not have been a top 10 finish and it did represent a dropoff from his eighth placed ranking a year earlier, but an extremely commendable effort nonetheless.
Best Performance: Week 1, MIA @ CLE, +8.4
Key Stat: Had the second highest Pass Rushing Productivity score of all 4-3 defensive ends with a 14.0 score.

55. Randy Starks, DT, Miami Dolphins (Unranked)
One of the forgotten men in the league in some respects, Starks has been around so long that he rarely gets the credit he is due. He didn’t finish his 2013 season quite as well as he might have liked but he did more than enough in the first half of the season especially to earn this ranking. Grading positively against the run and rushing the passer, he would finish 11th in terms of total pressure and third in number of defensive stops against the run at his position. A real impact player.
Best Performance: Week 5, BAL @ MIA, +7.7
Key Stat: Finished 10th in our Pass Rushing Productivity signature stat and sixth in our Run Stop Percentage amongst defensive tackles.

- This list is based solely on 2013 play. Nothing that happened in previous years or may happen in the future is accounted for. This isn’t about class or talent, it’s about form throughout 2013.

- This list is created with an All Positions Created Equal mantra. So you won’t see 32 quarterbacks heading the list even though that is the most valuable position, instead seeing how guys played relative to what is expected from their position. You might disagree with this for doing a Top 101 list which is your right, but this is how we’ve done it for the past three years and will continue doing it so that every player has a fair shot at getting the respect they deserve.

- A repetition because it’s often the most misunderstood; this is not a list about talent or a lifetime achievement award. It is solely, 100% based on what happened between the opening kickoff of the 2013 regular season and the final snap of the Super Bowl this past February. Anything outside those dates does not matter. ... 3-10-to-1/

....and.not one Dolphin offensive player made the list. How about Clay?
