NFL's Top 100 Players of 2013: Calvin Johnson comes in at No. 3

Detroit Lions wide receiver Calvin Johnson came in at No. 3 on NFL Network's Top 100 Players of 2013 list.


The final 10 spots on NFL Network's "Top 100 Players of 2013" list were unveiled on Thursday night. In the process, it was revealed that Detroit Lions wide receiver Calvin Johnson came in third on the list, which is based on a vote by players in the league.

Last year, Johnson was also ranked third in the NFL, so there wasn't any change to his ranking this year. Even though the Lions went 4-12 and Johnson only had 5 touchdowns, the fact that he set the single-season receiving record sort of speaks for itself. Johnson finished the 2012 season with 1,964 yards receiving, and guys around the league have obviously taken notice of how dominant he is as a player.

With Johnson making the list at No. 3, the Lions finished with four players in the top 100. Here's the full rundown:

No. 3 - WR Calvin Johnson
No. 40 - DT Ndamukong Suh
No. 63 - LB Stephen Tulloch
No. 76 - QB Matthew Stafford
