Catching up on NFL Network player ratings

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:

Russell Wilson (#20)http://www.nfl.com/videos/nfl-top100-2014/0ap2000000363053/Michael-Robinson-Willie-McGinest-Dave-Dameshek (This segment features an interview with Michael Robinson.)

Earl Thomas (#17): http://www.nfl.com/videos/nfl-top100-2014/0ap2000000363062/Adrian-Wilson-Chad-Henne-Brian-Hoyer-Jamaal-Charles-Tyrann-Mathieu-Cecil-Shorts-III-Johnny-Hekker

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.
