NFL Top 100: 91-100
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 91-100!
- Shaquil Barrett, OLB/Edge - Tampa Bay Buccaneers
After a MONSTER 2019, Barrett came back down to earth a bit in 2020. However, despite the numbers being down, he was still a very important cog in that defense. The Bucs are running it back with the exact same defense that they had from 2020, which likely means Barrett continues to be the main pass rushing force for this team in 2021.
- Wyatt Teller, Guard - Cleveland Browns
A year ago, it would have been comical to have Wyatt Teller on this list. Fast forward to today and Teller is one of the premiere guards in football. PFF rated him as the top rated player at his position in 2020, as well as the top rated run blocker.
- Vonn Miller OLB/Edge - Denver Broncos
Unfortunately, this once dominant pass rusher hasn’t been able to stay healthy the past few seasons. We will have to wait and see what the future holds but I expect him to still be fairly productive if he is able to stay on the field this coming season.
- Denzel Ward, Cornerback - Cleveland Browns
Ward has also dealt with some injuries over his young career. However, when he is on the field, he is a shutdown corner. The Browns defense will need him to stay healthy for 2021 if they truly have Superbowl aspirations.
- Grady Jarrett, Defensive Tackle - Atlanta Falcons
Grady Jarrett is the definition of underrated. To be fair, most defensive tackles fall into this category because it isn’t a glory position. However, the Falcons defense would be a complete dumpster fire on that side of the football without Jarrett. The combo of his run stopping power and sneaky pass rush ability, 2021 should be another solid season for the big man.
- Michael Thomas, Wide Receiver - New Orleans Saints
Having Thomas all the way down at 95 feels way too low. However, Thomas looked much more mortal without Drew Brees at the helm. The player known as “slant boy” will need to step his game up this coming season if he expects to move up this list once again.
- Joe Burrow, Quarterback - Cincinnati Bengals
After his devastating injury in his rookie campaign, the Bengals offense was in shambles. He looked great in the half season that we saw him and with and improved receiving core and offensive line, this kid should be wheels up for the coming season.
- Kyle Fuller, Cornerback - Denver Broncos
After 6 great seasons with the Chicago Bears, Fuller is heading to Denver to pair up with rookie Patrick Surtain in Vic Fangio’s defense. We should see the same kind of production that we saw early in his career now that he has paired back up with his old defensive coordinator.
- Ezekiel Elliot, Running Back - Dallas Cowboys
It’s odd to see Zeke this far down the list, but if we're being honest his 2020 alone probably should have him on this list at all. However, this is a projection moving forward and we do expect Zeke to bounce back to similar production levels with Dak Prescott returning and his line getting healthier.
- Jonathan Taylor, Running Back - Indianapolis Colts
If this was only based on the first half of Taylor’s season, there is no chance that Jonathan Taylor would be sniffing this list. That being said, the 2nd half of the season, Jonathan Taylor was virtually unstoppable scoring at least 1 touchdown in every game from week 12 forward.
