Seahawks Chris Carson & DK Metcalf Unveiled On NFL Network's Top 100 Players Of 2020 List

The NFL Network kicked off its Top 100 Players of 2020 countdown on Sunday, and two members of Seattle’s offense were included. 


Russell Wilson and Tyler Lockett are the two established stars on Seattle's offense, but the Seahawks have plenty of firepower on offense in addition to those two. 

The NFL Network's Top 100 Players of 2020 list provided a reminder of that on Sunday, with receiver DK Metcalf and running back Chris Carson both being named to the Top 100 for the first time.

Carson, who has rushed for more than 1,100 yards each of the past two seasons, checks in at No. 96 on the list, while Metcalf, who is coming off of an impressive rookie campaign, is No. 81 on the list.

Carson, a seventh-round pick in 2017, rushed for 1,230 yards and seven touchdowns in 15 games last season, and also caught 37 passes for 266 yards and two scores. In 2018, Carson rushed for 1,151 yards and nine scores in 14 games, making him Seattle's first 1,000-yard back since Marshawn Lynch in 2014.

Metcalf enjoyed a spectacular rookie season in which he recorded 58 receptions for 900 yards and seven touchdowns, giving him the second most catches and receiving yards by a rookie in franchise history. Metcalf's real coming out party, on the national stage at least, came in the playoffs when he caught seven passes for 160 yards at Philadelphia, including a spectacular 53-yard score in the third quarter, as well as 36-yard third-down catch late in the fourth quarter that allowed the Seahawks to put a Wild Card victory on ice. Metcalf's 160 receiving yards in that game were a Seahawks postseason record, as well as an NFL postseason rookie record.

The NFL Network's Top 100, which will be revealed nightly through Wednesday, is voted upon by players, and last year featured four Seahawks—Wilson (25), Lockett (98), Bobby Wagner (15) and Jadeveon Clowney (63).
