Eyster went 1st, 2nd, 1st (ATVL, BA, PG); Anu went 5th, 4th, 3rd; Cook went 8th, 1st, 4th; Villarreal went 4th, 3rd, 8th; Simoneit went 2nd, NR, 6th. There are our top five! Over 32 total spots ranked, 17 different players have been mentioned.

Well, as usual, time will tell how well any of the three lists told the future!
