Tuesday Round-Up: Five Seahawks Featured In NFL Network's 'Top 100 Players of 2018'

Good afternoon, 12s.

Here's a look at what's "out there" for today - Tuesday, June 26 - about your Seattle Seahawks: 

'Top 100' Recap

The NFL Network's 'Top 100 Players of 2018' concluded last night, with New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady repeating as the League's No. 1-ranked player by his NFL peers.

Five Seahawks were featured throughout the countdown, including quarterback Russell Wilson (No. 11), linebacker Bobby Wagner (No. 21), free safety Earl Thomas (No. 42), strong safety Kam Chancellor (No. 75), and receiver Doug Baldwin (No. 99). Of those Seattle players, NFL Media analysts Willie McGinest and Gil Brandt both believed Wilson to be a Top-10 snub

Said McGinest: "Russell Wilson just missed the top 10 by one, coming in at No. 11. But just look at what he did for Seattle in 2017. He was involved in 97.4 percent(!) of the Seahawks' offensive touchdowns (37 of 38), the highest percentage by any player in the Super Bowl era. Think about that."

Added Brandt: "Wilson will never be a prototype dropback passer, but that doesn't limit his effectiveness. The Seahawks have won 65 games in Wilson's first six seasons, and he possesses the arm, legs, smarts and poise to do everything in the league. He's excellent in third-down efficiency and has run for 3,275 yards and 16 touchdowns, averaging an even 6 yards per carry."

From a team-by-team standpoint, with five players on the list Seattle was among the most represented in the League. The Los Angeles Rams and Minnesota Vikings led the way, with each club landing seven players in the Top 100.
