NFL Free Agents 2012: Two Buffalo Bills In Pete Prisco's Top 50

NFL free agency is still more than a month away, and with all of that room for negotiations to take place, any Top 50 list of free agents put together at this stage is still premature. Pete Prisco's list at CBSSports.com, for example, lists several players that currently have an excellent chance of re-signing with their respective teams well before free agency begins.

It is noteworthy to us, however, that in listing his Top 50 impending free agents, two Buffalo Bills players made the cut - and convincingly so, we might add.

Clearly, Stevie Johnson was going to be on the list, and he comes in at No. 13, trailing only DeSean Jackson, Vincent Jackson and Dwayne Bowe at the receiver position. He ranks ahead of Marques Colston, Wes Welker, Reggie Wayne, Pierre Garcon, Robert Meachem, Jerome Simpson and Mario Manningham - all of whom made the Top 50 list, as well.

The bigger surprise by far was the No. 32 ranking of left tackle Demetrius Bell, who comes in behind only Jared Gaither at the tackle position, and ranks fifth among all offensive linemen (also trailing interior players Carl Nicks, Chris Myers and Ben Grubbs).

What do you think, folks? Are Johnson - and most specifically, Bell - ranked appropriately by Prisco?
