Richard Sherman highlighted at No. 50 in NFL’s Top 100 of 2013

All-Pro cornerback Richard Sherman, who recently ranked as one of the League’s nine most indispensable defensive players, joined center Max Unger (No. 95), wide receiver Percy Harvin (No. 90), free safety Earl Thomas (No. 66), and quarterback Russell Wilson (No. 51) as the fifth Seahawk to be represented on NFL Network’s list of the Top 100 players of 2013, appearing at No. 50 on tonight’s unveil of players ranked 41-50.

Not only is Sherman the fifth Seahawk, but he’s also the fifth player at his position to make the network’s list. Sherman ranks ahead of the Denver Broncos’ Champ Bailey (No. 53), Tampa Bay Buccaneers’ Darrelle Revis (No. 67), Chicago Bears’ Tim Jennings (No. 69), and Kansas City Chiefs’ Brandon Flowers (No. 75).

When Sherman was drafted with the 23rd pick in the fifth-round (154th overall) of the 2011 NFL Draft, he took close notice of every cornerback that was drafted ahead of him, saying he could rally off each of their names if asked. Two years later, Sherman has established himself as one of the game’s top players, tallying 115 tackles, 12 interceptions (eight last season, T-2nd in NFL), 41 passes defensed, four forced fumbles and 1.0 sack in just 26 starts with the Seahawks.

You can bet the overtly-ambitious Sherman will maintain that 2011 draft mentality toward any other cornerbacks that may be ranked ahead of him on this list (fellow All-Pro corner Charles Tillman of the Bears has yet to be unveiled) when the countdown picks up again next Thursday with players ranked No. 31-40.

    This is the same "Top 100" list that ignored Marshawn Lynch last year, right ?
