Four Packers have been revealed in the “Top 100 Players of 2020” rankings.
The NFL’s “Top 100 Players of 2020” rankings are being revealed this week. So far, they’ve announced players ranked between No. 100 and No. 41. Four Green Bay Packers players have been revealed in this year’s rankings so far.
Pass rushers Za’Darius Smith and Preston Smith, wide receiver Davante Adams, and left tackle David Bakhtiari have all made the top 100.
Za’Darius Smith is the highest-ranked Packer so far, coming in at No. 48 in this year’s rankings. Adams is at No. 57, Bakhtiari at No. 62, and Preston Smith at No. 63.
The annual “Top 100” rankings always lead to discussions among fans and analysts about where players should’ve been ranked. It’s important not to take the rankings too seriously, similarly to “Madden” ratings, but it is fun to discuss.
It’s not surprising to see these four Packers make the Top 100, they all deserve it. But should they have been higher in the rankings? Adams could certainly make a case for being higher. He has over 4,000 yards and 40 touchdowns since the start of the 2016 season, something no other wide receiver in the NFL can say.
Wide receivers Stefon Diggs (No. 54) and Amari Cooper (No. 49) are both higher than Adams.
Two more Packers expected in “Top 100 Players of 2020”
Terez A. Paylor of Yahoo Sports reported last week that Green Bay has six players in the Top 100 this year. We know four of them, so who are the other two?
Kenny Clark? Aaron Rodgers? Aaron Jones? All three deserve to be near the top of the rankings, but only two of them can be if the Packers do indeed have six players in this year’s Top 100. It’s hard to leave any of them out.
What we do know is that the final two Packers to be revealed will be in the top 40. Which two remaining Packers do you think will be in the Top 100?
