The annual NFL Top 100 list is here, and the Green Bay Packers have two players featured so far with the top 40 still yet to be revealed.

The Green Bay Packers have had one of the best teams in the league over the past two seasons.

In 2020, Matt LaFleur’s team won 13 games in the regular season and secured the top seed in the NFC. They would advance past the Los Angeles Rams in the divisional round before falling short in the NFC Championship Game to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers at Lambeau Field.

The Packers had star performers at a number of different positions last season, and they will again be key to this team in 2021.

Two Packers revealed in NFL Top 100

We don’t yet know who the top 40 players are in this year’s list, but the players from No. 100 to No. 41 have been revealed, and that includes two Packers.

Star pass rusher Za’Darius Smith is at No. 51 in the NFL Top 100, down three spots from last year. He had another great season in 2020, hitting double-digit sacks again and being named a Pro Bowler and second-team All-Pro.

Cornerback Jaire Alexander made the NFL Top 100 for the first time, coming in at No. 41. It’s been fun to see his rise over the past three seasons, and he deservedly makes the top 50 in this year’s list. Alexander is coming off a second-team All-Pro and Pro Bowl season.

With 40 players still to be revealed in this year’s list, we can safely assume Alexander and Smith won’t be the only two Packers featured.

Reigning MVP, QB Aaron Rodgers, All-Pro LT David Bakhtiari, All-Pro WR Davante Adams, and Pro Bowl RB Aaron Jones are all likely to be featured somewhere inside the top 40. We can likely expect to see Rodgers and Adams inside the top 10 of this year’s list.
