It’s the fourth time the star player has been announced the number 1 by his peers in the NFL Network’s annual countdown. Brady, a three-time MVP and seven-time Super Bowl champion, also received top honors in the “Top 100” in 2011, the inaugural year of the NFL Network countdown show, as well as in 2017 and 2018. He topped the NFL in passing yards (5,316) and touchdowns (43) last season, helping the Buccaneers to a 13-4 record.

  1. Aaron Donald, DT, Los Angeles Rams

Known for his defensive tackles, Aaron Donald is one of the best players of his time. He is ranked the highest-rated defensive tackler in the NFL league and second on the Top 100 Best Players’ list. Donald wins a top-third ranking in the Top 100 for the fourth consecutive season, but his current string of seven consecutive selections is still going strong.

  1. Aaron Rodgers, QB, Green Bay Packers

He received votes for MVP in addition to winning the 2021 AP NFL Offensive Player of the Year award for his performances.

  1. Jonathan Taylor, RB, Indianapolis Colts

It’s no surprise that the 23years old star player, Jonathan Taylor, is identified as one of the best players in the NFL by his peers. The young star’s big play capabilities have made him exceptionally unique among his peers, having the awareness to make the best use of his blockers, the balance to avoid being tackled, and the breakaway speed to make those long gains.  

  1. T.J. Watt, LB, Pittsburgh Steelers

With 72.0 sacks in five seasons, this 27-year-old is already standing fifth on the Steelers’ all-time list. In the 6th year, he will need 8.5 more sacks to pass James Harrison for the top spot. In addition to 64 tackles, five forced fumbles, three fumble recoveries, and a league-high 21 tackles for loss during his historic 2021 season, he won his All-pro nods. He is ranked the sixth-best player in the NFL. 

  1. Davante Adams, WR, Las Vegas Raiders

Devante Adams is the highest-paid WR receiver in the history of the NFL. With his speed, sure hand, size, route running, and awareness, he has led the league in each of the past five seasons.

  1. Patrick Mahomes, QB, Kansas City Chiefs 

Mahomes has developed into a gunslinger quarterback with a rocket arm and one with capability in and around the pocket. The 26-year-old player led Kansas City to its fourth consecutive AFC Championship Game and is in the Top 10 for the fourth year in a row.

  1. Jalen Ramsey, CB, Los Angeles Rams
