Like the NFL did a few months back with their player-voted "NFL Top 100" list, ESPN has selected who they think are the top 100 players in the NFL, calling it #NFLRank.

The process, which included more than 70 voters from various backgrounds, graded and evaluated every single player in the NFL.

The result was the top 100 players with the highest grades, and once again like the "NFL Top 100" list, Redskins DeSean Jackson, Ryan Kerrigan and Trent Williams make appearances.

Top the group is Jackson, who checks in at No. 63 on the list with a rating score of 82.86.

"If the dictionary had an entry for 'Take the top off a defense' you could put Jackson's picture right there," said a voter. No kidding. In 2014, Jackson proved he hadn't lost a step, leading the NFL in yards per reception at 20.9, which is exactly how you catch only 56 passes but still have well over 1,000 yards. Jackson truly is a player who causes defenders to back up because they know it's coming, and they still can't stop him. Even a move from Philly to D.C. didn't appreciably cut into Jackson's numbers," his comment section states.

Next on the list is Kerrigan, 76th with a rating score of 81.41.

"It's been crazy, but they nailed Trent [Williams] and him in back-to-back years [in the draft]," said an NFC evaluator. "He's the cliché -- the high motor and the endless gas tank," said a voter, "but he also generates pressure to go with it."

Washington Redskins wide receiver DeSean Jackson (No. 50) and tackle Trent Williams (No. 47) were named to the NFL Network's "Top 100 Players Of 2015" countdown Wednesday, June 10, 2015.

And Williams is 86th on the list with a rating score of 80.30.

"A complete tackle, Williams can run block and pass block, and is devastating in the screen game. His talent has been obvious in part because of the lack of blocking competency around him, and he's been to the last three Pro Bowls," his section states.
