Earl Thomas & Russell Wilson Unveiled On NFL Network's Top 100 Players Of 2015

Six Seahawks have made NFL Network's list of the Top 100 Players of 2015 - two remain with 20 players left to name.

Two more Seahawks have been named to NFL Network's list of the Top 100 Players of 2015. 

Free safety Earl Thomas (No. 21) and quarterback Russell Wilson (No. 22) joined teammates Jimmy Graham (No. 31), Kam Chancellor (No. 41), Bobby Wagner (No. 69), and Michael Bennett (No. 90) on the network's ballot determined solely by NFL players, an exercise that unveiled athletes ranked Nos. 30-21 on Wednesday night. In last year's countdown, Thomas and Wilson appeared at No. 17 and No. 20, respectively.

No other safeties remain on the list, so the Seahawks have the two highest ranked safeties in the league with Thomas at No. 21 and Chancellor at No. 41. Only four other quarterbacks remain on the list after Wilson.

With the three-time first-team All-Pro Thomas and two-time Pro Bowler Wilson named, it leaves just two Seattle players who appeared on last year's list that have yet to make their debut on 2015's Top 100 countdown.

Running back Marshawn Lynch, who came in at No. 14 a season ago, and cornerback Richard Sherman, the game's highest-rated defensive player at No. 7 in 2014, are still waiting for their names to be called. With the way both players performed this past season, we're willing to bet they'll be featured as NFL Network's countdown comes to a close.

The program continues next Wednesday at 6 p.m. PT with players ranked Nos. 20-11.
