The NFL Network’s list of the Top 100 players of 2015 is just about complete, with only the top ten players left to be broadcast.

The league has released the names of those top ten players, and here they are in alphabetical order.

Odell Beckham, Jr., WR, New York Giants
Tom Brady, QB, New England Patriots
Antonio Brown, WR, Pittsburgh Steelers
Rob Gronkowski, TE, New England Patriots
Julio Jones, WR, Atlanta Falcons
Luke Kuechly, LB, Carolina Panthers
Cam Newton, QB, Carolina Panthers
Adrian Peterson, RB, Minnesota Vikings
Aaron Rodgers, QB, Green Bay Packers
J.J. Watt, DE, Houston Texans

Yes, for the fifth time in the last six years, Adrian Peterson has made his way into the Top Ten on this list. The only time he didn’t make it was the 2014 season where he missed 15 games. . .and still appeared on the list at #62. He peaked at #1 following his incredible 2012 season.

I’m not sure where to anticipate Peterson being slotted on this year’s list. Newton is the MVP of the league, so there’s no way he should be listed ahead of him. I’m guessing he’s going to end up in the bottom half of the top ten, to be honest.

The episodes featuring the Top Ten players will be broadcast on the NFL Network on Wednesday, 6 July. There will be two hour long episodes with Players 6-10 being revealed at 7:00 PM Central and the Top 5 happening at 8:00 PM Central.

So, where do you think Adrian Peterson is going to land in this year’s Top Ten?
