All thirty-two FanSided managing editors are putting aside their respective differences to band together to form their all-division teams. As for the NFC South? That means Who Dat Dish, Pewter Plank, Blogging Dirty, and Cat Crave will form their top eleven starters on offense and defense to compete against the likes of the other division’s best.

Here’s where we are at the moment with the skill positions, and we need YOUR help to select the final piece of the puzzle!

QB: Drew Brees, Saints
RB: Doug Martin, Bucs
WR: Julio Jones, Falcons
WR: Vincent Jackson, Bucs
TE: Jimmy Graham, Saints

We have the option to include another wide receiver, tight end, or running back, but the debate lies in who exactly should be chosen. The NFC South has some ample choices when it comes to selecting another skill position. We won’t move into the offensive line until we figure this out, so that’s where your vote is needed.

Running Back candidates: Pierre Thomas, DeAngelo Williams

The Case: DeAngelo Williams led the NFC South in rushing. He can still hit the holes behind a powerful offensive line. Pierre Thomas is very versatile in rushing and receiving, and won’t go down after first contact. 

Wide Receiver candidates: Marques Colston, Harry Douglas, Roddy White

The Case: With Julio Jones hurt, Harry Douglas stepped up in a huge way in Atlanta, performing better than Roddy White. Marques Colston is a favored target of Brees, so it would make more sense than not. Roddy White is a former Pro Bowler, so to ignore him would make us completely naive.

Tight End candidates: Greg Olsen

The Case: Olsen is a nice threat to compliment Jimmy Graham, and has very good hands. With Graham drawing major coverage, Olsen would be a perfect option for Drew Brees.

The polls will be open for the next 24 hours, so spread the word!

Did we miss someone? Did we get someone wrong? Who do you feel makes the case for the ‘best of the best’ for the All-NFC South team? Should we consider a rookie like Brandin Cooks? Sounds off below!
