Even the causal NFL football fan knows the Pittsburgh Steelers have some high profile players on their roster, and when the NFL Network starts their Top 100 list it becomes even more validated.

To date, the Steelers have had four players on the Top 100, and they are:

No. 48 Cameron Heyward

No. 47 Ryan Shazier

No. 44 David DeCastro

No. 18 Ben Roethlisberger

But, according to the list, the best were yet to come.

On Monday night the list came to its crescendo when they revealed their Top 10, and the black-and-gold were well represented.

It started with Le’Veon Bell being listed at No. 5 on the list, a 4 spot improvement from the previous season. Bell had a tremendous season with 1,291 rushing yards, 9 rushing touchdowns, 655 receiving yards and two receiving touchdowns. Although Bell’s yards-per-carry average dipped, his impact was felt all across the football field.

During Bell’s segments you hear from numerous teammates, defenders and opponents who all marvel at what No. 26 does on a daily basis.

The night didn’t end there with Bell being ranked 5th, Antonio Brown sky rocketed all the way to No. 2 on the overall list.

Brown doesn’t need much talk or discussion when it comes to statistics. His play does all the talking. However, if you want to see teammates, defensive backs and Brown himself talk about his craft, his video is worth watching.

The only player ranked higher than Brown? You guessed it, Tom Brady.

Regardless, the Steelers were rightfully well represented throughout the NFL’s Top 100 player list, but it is time for this group of highly talented individuals to put together a truly special season in 2018.
