NFL Top 100: Nick Foles at 70, Jason Peters at 67, and DeSean Jackson at 63

Kirby Lee-USA TODAY Sports

Two current Eagles players and one former Eagles player finished between 70-60 on the NFL Top 100 list as revealed by NFL Network.

NFL Network's annual offseason Top 100 Players in the NFL series reached spots 70 through 60 on Wednesday night and there were three names of interest on the list. Two of the players still currently remain for the Eagles, and other one does not. You can watch video of these selections on NFL.com.

70) QB Nick Foles

Seems low when you consider all of this:

For the season, Nick Foles threw 27 touchdowns and just two interceptions. In doing so, he posted the best TD/INT ratio in NFL history and became the only quarterback to throw over 20 touchdowns and two interceptions or fewer. Foles’ 0.63% interception percentage ranks as the third-lowest in NFL history. Foles is currently the franchise’s all-time leader in QB rating (101.0) and completion percentage (62.5). He also set the single-season franchise mark in completion percentage (64.0).

Foles player review:

Numbers: 715 snaps, 10 games started, 13 games played, 8-2 QB record, 203/317 (64%), 27 TD, 2 INT, 2891 yards, 9.1 Y/A, 119.2 QB Rating, 221 rush yards, 3 rush TD, 4 fumbles

Review: To call Nick Foles' performance in 2013 surprising would be an understatement. After entering the season as the team's backup, he went on to post some really flashy numbers in Chip Kelly's offense. The team really played well with Foles at the helm. Foles saw his first significant action when he stepped in for an injured Michael Vick during the Week 5 game against the Giants. He topped that performance with another strong showing against the Buccaneers in Tampa. A terrible outing from Foles against the Cowboys back in Philadelphia really left huge question marks. After missing a week due to a concussion, Foles rebounded in a big way in Oakland with 7 TDs and remained as the team's starter for the rest of the season. Foles will be back in 2014 as the Eagles starting quarterback. The next challenge for him is to not only show he can replicate his success but improve upon it.

67) OT Jason Peters

Peters is still one of the top tackles in the game despite his age. His 2013 performance was even more impressive when you consider he battled through injured the entire season. Peters player review:

Stats: 1040 snaps, 4th best graded OT by PFF out of 76, 4 penalties, 4 sacks allowed, 3 QB hits allowed, 28 QB hurries allowed

Review: Jason Peters wasn't the completely dominant player he was in 2011 prior to the Achilles injury he suffered in 2012, but he was still very, very good. Peters was crucial in opening holes for LeSean McCoy to run as well as protecting Nick Foles' blind side. Eagles running plays in the direction of Peters went for an average gain of 6.12 yards, which was the best in the NFL. Peters was named to the 2014 NFL Pro Bowl (but decided to opt out), the 2013 AP NFL All-Pro Team, and the 2013 PFWA All-NFC team. He is also deserving of Comeback Player of the Year consideration. Peters' toughness can't be doubted as he played throughout the year with a number of injuries including a broken finger, a sore shoulder, and maybe more.

63) WR DeSean Jackson

Jackson is obviously no longer with the Eagles but there's no denying he had a great year in his final season as a member of the Eagles.

Stats: 1010 snaps, 82 rec, 1332 yards, 16.2 Y/R, 9 TD, 61 Lng, 1 fumble

Review: DeSean Jackson experienced a career year in his first season under Chip Kelly. Jackson was recently named to the Pro Bowl after originally make the roster as an alternate. According to Pro Football Focus's "WR Rating" statistic, quarterbacks had a 124.4 QB rating when throwing to Jackson in 2013. That number earned Jackson the highest rank in the NFL. Jackson a big play threat and a reliable target. Jackson's contract comments after the season ended rubbed some people the wrong way, but there's no denying he had a great season.

Foles and Peters join Eagles offensive lineman Evan Mathis as the three current Eagles to be revealed on this list. Which Eagles player will be next?

88 - Evan Mathis
70 - Nick Foles
67 - Jason Peters
63 - DeSean Jackson
