Every year, the NFL Network compiles a list of the top 100 players in the NFL as voted on by the players themselves. This year, a former Buckeye cracked the top-10 of that list as Ezekiel Elliott was named the No. 7 player in the league.

The Cowboys' rookie running back had a record-breaking rookie season, leading the league with 1,631 rushing yards on 322 attempts with 15 touchdowns.

Elliott was the highest-rated member of the 2016 draft class and was also the top running back on the list, finishing two spots ahead of Pittsburgh Steelers running back Le'Veon Bell.

Elliott was joined on the list by two other former Buckeyes: Malcolm Jenkins, checking in at No. 90, and Joey Bosa who was ranked No. 100.
