NFL's Top 100 Players of 2013: Stephen Tulloch comes in at No. 63

Tim Fuller-US PRESSWIRE

Detroit Lions linebacker Stephen Tulloch came in at No. 63 on NFL Network's Top 100 Players of 2013 list.

Linebacker Stephen Tulloch is the latest Detroit Lions player to be included in NFL Network's "Top 100 Players of 2013." He was revealed as the 63rd player in the top 100 on Thursday night when spots 61-70 were unveiled. He was ranked just ahead of the likes of Alfred Morris, Dwayne Bowe, Earl Thomas and Darrelle Revis.

Tulloch spoke to the Lions' official site about being included in the top 100, and he also tweeted this on Thursday night:

I'm pretty surprised that Tulloch made the list at all, and I'm especially surprised he was ranked 63rd. While he has had 100-plus combined tackles in each of the last four seasons, Tulloch doesn't usually get much recognition for his steady play. Clearly, fellow players are now taking notice of what he has done as the Lions' starting middle linebacker.

Last week, it was revealed that Lions quarterback Matthew Stafford came in at No. 76 in the top 100. As the series continues, expect both Lions wide receiver Calvin Johnson and defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh to be included in the top 100 as well.
