I was off-line last 24 hours or so, and I know this may be old news to many of you.
But since we have been monitoring the NFL Network’s Top 100 rankings of Seahawks players, wanted to pass along that three were named last night in the latest installment — QB Russell Wilson at 20, S Earl Thomas at 17 and RB Marshawn Lynch at 14.
Here is some additional info from the NFL Network:
Here are the video link to the segments:

Marshawn Lynch (#14): http://www.nfl.com/videos/nfl-top100-2014/0ap2000000363066/Willie-McGinest-Dave-Dameshek
Here are some facts about the three Seahawks with respect to the list:

Finally, as a reminder this list is determined solely by the vote of current NFL players.
The season finale, players ranked #10-1, will air as a two hour special at 6:00 PM PT on Wednesday, July 9. The Top 100 Players of 2014 Reactions show will air afterwards at 8:00 PM PT.
And in cases you also missed it, here was Thomas’ not-so-ecstatic reaction last night to his ranking:
