DENVER — Each week, the NFL rolls out another 10 players on the top 100 players list of 2017. This week, another Broncos player joined the list.
Aqib Talib joined the ranks of elite players — decided upon by the players in the league themselves — at Rank 37. He was outpaced by Marcus Peters, a Kansas City Chief, who rose to 32 on the 2017 ranking.
Talib dropped from 34 in 2016 to his current status, partially due to the poor performance of the defensive unit as a whole.
Also on the list is Chris Harris Jr., another cornerback, at rank 63. He makes up the other half of the No Fly Zone alongside Talib. Harris also saw a slight drop year over year, as he sat at rank 52 on the 2016 list.
In just two weeks, the league will know the top 20 players, and Von Miller is expected to join those ranks.
