Where would YOU rank Carson?

NFL: Arizona Cardinals at Philadelphia Eagles Eric Hartline-USA TODAY Sports

The final 10 players in the NFL Top 100 will be revealed later tonight on NFL Network (8:00 PM ET). Actually, we already know which players made the list. The reveal is just about which order they’ll be in. (Surely, the suspense is killing everyone!)

Here’s the full list in alphabetical order, including one pretty important Philadelphia Eagles player.

Le’Veon Bell, RB, Pittsburgh Steelers
Tom Brady, QB, New England Patriots
Drew Brees, QB, New Orleans Saints
Antonio Brown, WR, Pittsburgh Steelers
Aaron Donald, DT, Los Angeles Rams
Todd Gurley, RB, Los Angeles Rams
Julio Jones, WR, Atlanta Falcons
Von Miller, LB, Denver Broncos
Aaron Rodgers, QB, Green Bay Packers
Carson Wentz, QB, Philadelphia Eagles

Wentz is an obvious inclusion on the list. The second-year quarterback easily could’ve been the NFL MVP if he didn’t get hurt late in the season. It’s also not difficult to imagine him ending up as the Super Bowl MVP.

Though obvious, it’s still cool to see Wentz has earned enough respect for his fellow NFL players to vote him as a top 10 talent.

Tonight’s order reveal will tell us a little more about how players feel about Wentz. Where exactly will he fall in the top 10?

Personally, I’d put him at No. 1. Am I biased? Obviously. But again, this was a dude who could’ve been the MVP. Heck, he still threw more touchdowns and fewer interceptions than the guy who did win MVP ... despite playing in 3.25 fewer games than Tom Brady did. (Not to mention Brady dropped a pass and fumbled the game away in the Super Bowl, which the Eagles won.)

I don’t think Wentz will end up as No. 1. I think some players probably voted for more of the veteran guys. I do think Wentz should definitely at least be above every non-quarterback, except for maybe Aaron Donald. He shouldn’t be below Aaron Rodgers, who played fewer than seven full games, either. That means he should be around fourth overall, at least.

This post was entirely too many words on something that doesn’t really matter much. But it’s the dead zone and this is what we talk about to get us by. You can look forward to another meaningless NFL Top 100 post tonight when Wentz’s ranking is revealed!
