The NFL is rolling out its annual Top 100, a ranking of players throughout the league voted upon by the players themselves. The list has been trickling out since yesterday and three Eagles have already shown up in the rankings:
99. Brandon Graham
92. Jason Kelce
63. Fletcher Cox
This is Graham’s first appearance on the Top 100, breaking through following his first Pro Bowl selection in his age-32 season. Kelce moved up two spots after being 94th in 2020. Cox also made a leap, going from 73rd to 63rd.
The rankings for Graham and Cox feel pretty apt, but Kelce should still be in consideration for the best center in football. More ammo for his next Super Bowl parade speech!
While the list isn’t officially over with (players through no. 11 will be announced later today), I can’t envision any other Eagles will be on the list. Lane Johnson was ranked 95th in 2018 and Darius Slay was ranked 92nd in 2020, but those guys aren’t at their previous peaks right now.
Perhaps some young Eagles on the rise like DeVonta Smith, Jordan Mailata, Josh Sweat or even Jalen Hurts can crack the list come 2022.
