The finale for NFL Network's "Top 100 Players of 2012" is set for next Wednesday. Players 10-6 will be revealed from 8-9 p.m., and the final five players will be revealed from 9-10 p.m.
Spots 20-11 were revealed last night, and Detroit Lions wide receiver Calvin Johnson was not among them. This means he is in the top 10, which was the expectation from the very beginning of this series. Johnson was 27th in last year's Top 100, but after his outstanding 2011 season, it was a given that he would move up.

Where do you think Megatron will land in this year's Top 100?
