NFL Top 100: 51-60
Everyone loves a good list. Normally we spend our time discussing NFL mystery boxes, autographed mini helmets, signed memorabilia and all kinds of sports collectibles. However, today we ignore signed jerseys and focus on just ranking the best players in the NFL. Let’s look at players 51-60!
- Trent Williams, Left Tackle - San Francisco 49ers
Trent has been around the block a time or two but he is still scary good. He once again lead PFF with the highest overall score at the position at age 32. If you’re waiting for him to fall off a cliff, keep waiting.
- Derwin James, Safety - Los Angeles Chargers
You would be hard pressed to find a single person that doesn't believe that Derwin James is elite. His only problem has been staying healthy. He has missed 2 straight seasons but is expected to be fully healthy for 2021. If that’s the case, he will likely get a 20 spot boost in these rankings.
- Jamal Adams, Safety - Seattle Seahawks
Jamal Adams spent his first season in Seattle in 2020 and was a huge boost for a defense that was on the fritz. He had 9.5 sacks and also had over 80 tackles in just 12 games. At only 25 years old, the best is yet to come for Adams.
- Joe Thuney, Guard - Kansas City Chiefs
Joe Thuney joins an entirely revamped Kansas City offensive line and he is the ring leader. After being the best offensive lineman for the past few season in New England, the guard takes his talents to one of the best teams in football.
- Saquan Barkley, Running Back - New York Giants
You could take what was said above about Derwin James and just copy and paste it right here. Barkley has all the talent in the world and will dominate if healthy.
- Julio Jones, Wide Receiver - Tennessee Titans
It’s hard to say how much longer Julio can be a top 100 guy. However, it doesn't seem to be age that’s holding back, it has been injuries. If he can stay healthy, he could be a big difference maker for the Titans this coming season.
- Lavante David, Linebacker - Tampa Bay Buccaneers
There are so many deserving members of the Buccaneers defense on this list, but possibly none more deserving than David. David is the guy that does all the dirty work stopping the run and making plays in coverage. Because of that he doesn't have sexy sack totals but he is one of the best at what he does in the league.
- Justin Jefferson, Wide Receiver - Minnesota Vikings
Justin Jefferson had an incredible rookie campaign. It ranks up there with the likes of Randy Moss and Odell Bekham Jr. Jefferson took his elite route running and contested catch ability and set the world on fire in 2020. It’s hard to put any ceiling on this kid at this point in his career.
- Kyler Murray, Quarterback - Arizona Cardinals
The number 1 overall pick was on his way to an MVP discussion but after a shoulder injury mid way through the season, things we’re just not the same. Assuming health this season, the young quarterback will look to find the one thing that seems to still be alluding him… the playoffs.
- Justin Simmons, Safety - Denver Broncos
Most safeties are not big name players, but it is wild that Simmons hasn't been feared in the same way some of the other safeties on this list have been. This ballhawk has had 2 or more interceptions every year of his 5 year career and has posted 4 and 5 respectively over the past 2 seasons.
