For the second year in a row, Detroit Lions wide receiver Calvin Johnson has been voted as one of the 10 best players in the NFL by his peers. A year ago, he came in third in the entire league, and this year he will be ranked somewhere in the top 10 in NFL Network's "Top 100 Players of 2013."

The players who came in 11-20 on the list were unveiled on Thursday night. With Johnson not accounting for one of those spots, we know he will be in the top 10. It remains to be seen if he will be able to make the top five for the second year in a row, but it's a pretty good bet with him breaking Jerry Rice's single-season receiving record in 2012.

Once Johnson is officially revealed as a member of this list, the Lions will end up having four players in the top 100. Previously, defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh came in at No. 40, linebacker Stephen Tulloch came in at No. 63 and quarterback Matthew Stafford came in at No. 76.

The two-hour finale of the "Top 100 Players of 2013" will air next Thursday at 8 p.m. ET on NFL Network.
