NFL Top 100: Here's the top 10, including Adrian Peterson


We won't know where these top 10 rank until NFL Network unveils the rankings on Tuesday, July 5, but if you had to rank them what would your list look like?

It's the fifth time in six years that Adrian Peterson has made it in the top 10. Chris Ivory, a running back for the Jaguars, called Peterson the "best running back of this generation."

  • Odell Beckham Jr. – 96 catches, 1,450 yards, 13 TD
  • Tom Brady – 4,770 yards, 36 TD, 7 INT
  • Antonio Brown – 136 catches, 1,834 yards, 10 TD
