The NFL Network began revealing its Top 100 Players of 2021 on Sunday with players No. 100-41 unveiled, and making the Top 100 so far are Seahawks safety Quandre Diggs at No. 77 and receiver Tyler Lockett at No. 76. Also cracking the Top 100 was linebacker K.J. Wright at No. 67.
It's Lockett's third straight year on the Top 100, while Diggs and Wright, who is currently a free agent, are both making their Top 100 debuts.
Lockett is coming off a 2020 season in which he set a franchise record with 100 catches for 1,054 receiving yards and 10 touchdowns. Over his past three seasons, Lockett has 259 catches for 3,076 yards and 28 touchdowns,
Diggs, who in 2020 earned Pro-Bowl honors for the first time, led the Seahawks with five interceptions last season, and also had 64 tackles and 10 passes defensed. Since joining the Seahawks in a 2019 midseason trade, Diggs has eight interceptions and a forced fumble in 21 games.
Wright, meanwhile, made his 10th season one of the best of his NFL career. After opening the season at his usual weakside linebacker spot, Wright moved to strongside linebacker, though he still played weakside in nickel packages, and finished the year with 86 tackles, 10 passes defensed and 11 tackles for loss, making him the only player in the league in 2020 to finish with double-digit totals in tackles for loss and passes defensed.
The Top 100 countdown will continue on Sunday, August 22 when players No. 40-11 are revealed, then concluded on Saturday, August 28 with the unveiling of the Top 10.
Last year's Seahawks had six players on the Top 100: quarterback Russell Wilson (No. 2), linebacker Bobby Wagner (13), safety Jamal Adams (27), Lockett (65), receiver DK Metcalf (81), and running back Chris Carson (96). Defensive end Jadeveon Clowney also made the list at No. 41 after spending 2019 with the Seahawks, though he was a free agent at the time and ended up not re-signing with Seattle.
