NFL Top 100: 61-70
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 61-70!
- Matthew Stafford, Quarterback - Detroit Lions
On talent alone, Matthew Stafford has been a top 10 quarterback most of his career. The difficult part is he hasn't had a lot of talent and good play calling around him. Now Stafford will be playing in Sean McVay’s offense and with solid position groups all around the offense.
- Alvin Kamara, Running Back - New Orleans Saints
After originally being somewhat of an afterthought in his class, Kamara has arguably had the best and most consistent career out of any running back in the 2017 class. In his 4 seasons, he has posted 1300+ total yards in every single one of them.
- Matt Ryan Quarterback - Atlanta Falcons
Matty Ice added a star in the making in the form of Kyle Pitts but also lost his main weapon in the form of Julio Jones. Either way, Ryan can still sling it with the best of them. Hopefully Arthur Smith’s offense allows Ryan to put his skills on display.
- Fletcher Cox, Defensive Tackle/Defensive End - Philadelphia Eagles
For nearly a decade, Fletcher Cox has been terrorizing offenses from his defensive tackle position. Despite posting wild sack and tackle numbers, Cox has never seemed to get the credit that he truly deserves. We could be looking at a Hall of Fame player when it's all said and done.
- Casey Hayward, Defensive End - Pittsburgh Steelers
The lockdown corner might now be as good as he was in Green Bay or early in his career with the Chargers, but the lockdown corner is still going to be a solid asset for the Raiders. Teams stopped targeting him as much after some monster interception totals, let’s see if more footballs come his way now.
- DK Metcalf, Wide Receiver - Seattle Seahawks
We’re not exactly sure if this guy is human. He is truly the definition of “built different”. The speed strength combo receiver has only played 2 seasons in the league, but has amassed over 2,000 yards and 17 touchdowns in that short time. I wouldn’t be surprised to see this player significantly higher next season.
- Keenan Allen, Wide Receiver - Los Angeles Chargers
Captain consistency is at it again. He might not be overly flashy, but Keenan has averaged roughly 100 catches and 1150 yards over the past 4 seasons. People keep thinking he is older, but at only 29 years old he still has a few good seasons left in the tank.
- Corey Linsley, Center - Los Angeles Chargers
There haven't been a lot of centers on the list, but Linsley is the best of the bunch. The Chargers got a massive upgrade at the position in the offseason and Linsley will lead this offensive line in both run blocking and pass blocking efficiency.
- Cameron Jordan, Defensive End - New Orleans Saints
The New Orleans rush man just doesn’t stop. Year in and year out he performs at pro bowl levels. He hasn’t had a single season where he had less than 7.5 sacks since his rookie season in 2011.
- Marlon Humphery, Cornerback - Baltimore Ravens
In the great group of Baltimore corners, Humphrey is the top dog. He has rare size and physicality at the position and is only getting better.
