It is that time of year again. Time for the NFL to release their Top 100 players of the previous season. In the past, the NFL has stretched this out throughout the vast majority of the offseason. They would release 10 players at a time, have an hour long show unveiling the list and even a reaction show.

This year the league changed it up and released players without as much fan fare. The Steelers already had two players on the NFL Top 100, Cameron Heyward coming in at No. 57, and Minkah Fitzpatrick at No. 52.

It was then reported there would be only three members of the Pittsburgh Steelers to make the Top 100, and fans immediately knew the other would be T.J. Watt. But where would Watt be ranked?

Saturday it was announced Watt is No. 9 on the NFL’s Top 100.

The NFL has released their Top 10, and here are the 8 players who they considered better than T.J. Watt.

10. Josh Allen, Buffalo Bills
9. T.J. Watt, Pittsburgh Steelers
8. DeAndre Hopkins, Arizona Cardinals
7. Tom Brady, Tampa Bay Buccaneers
6. DaVante Adams, Green Bay Packers

5. Travis Kelce, Kansas City Chiefs
4. Derrick Henry, Tennessee Titans
3. Aaron Rodgers, Green Bay Packers
2. Aaron Donald, Los Angeles Rams
1. Patrick Mahomes, Kansas City Chiefs
