Updated NFL Top 100 list: Here’s who players voted as best in league for 2023 rankings

The NFL Top 100 is back and better than ever in 2023. Once again, sports fans will get a chance to debate the legitimacy of the NFL’s annual player rankings and voice their opinions about whether the players actually know what they are talking about.

The difference between this year’s NFL Top 100 and previous editions of the list is that the 2023 rankings are debuting a bit earlier than they have in recent seasons. Typically, the entire rankings were revealed as a part of the NFL Network’s preseason football coverage.

In 2023, the NFL Top 100 is being produced as an NFL+ special. As such, the league decided to go with an earlier roll-out in the hopes of driving eyeballs to its subscription service before preseason action begins in earnest.

While the NFL’s presentation of the list is changing, the methodology of the Top 100 remains the same. The league polls players and asks them to vote on which of their contemporaries they believe are the best. The league then compiles those results and releases the NFL Top 100.


Of course, the Top 100 almost always causes a stir. There tends to be plenty of snubs, surprises and head-scratching rankings that fans will discuss endlessly. That plays into the beauty of the list; there’s nothing sports fans love more than debating which players are the best and who outranks who at each position.

That said, because players are voting on the NFL’s Top 100 list, fans can’t get too mad about it. The list will always carry some legitimacy because the players have more intimate knowledge about their peers than anyone else.

But some players do get upset by it. Not everyone is ultimately happy with where they are ranked and those that are omitted can get salty on occasion, too. Meanwhile, those that do make the cut each year often are humbled by the honor, and the NFL likes to promote those that are happy with the list on its social media platforms.

Regardless of how the list is perceived by fans and players, the crafting of the rankings is all in good fun and meant to create conversation. It certainly accomplishes that main goal.

Here’s a look at the NFL’s Top 100 list for 2023 and how it compares to the list the league released in 2022.

When will the NFL Top 100 player list be revealed?

Per usual, the NFL is revealing its top 100 list over a multi-week period. However, the process is beginning earlier in 2023 than it has in seasons past, as the league is choosing to reveal players 10 at a time via its streaming service, NFL+.

NFL+ will reveal the top 90 players on the list over a 10-day period before the top 10 are revealed in a two-hour special on the streaming service. That special will air on Monday, Aug. 7 at 8 p.m. ET and will be hosted by Rich Eisen and Andrew Whitworth.

Full NFL Top 100 list for 2022

A lot changes from season to season on the NFL Top 100 list, and the differences between the 2022 and 2023 lists should be stark. Tom Brady was voted the league’s No. 1 player for the 2022 campaign, so his retirement has opened up an opportunity for a new No. 1.

Additionally, we can expect that Patrick Mahomes — who was rated criminally low at No. 8 in 2022 — will be back near the top of the list.

Meanwhile, many of the other players included on the 2022 list will be playing for new teams in 2023. The most notable of that bunch is the No. 3-ranked Aaron Rodgers, who will suit up for the Jets after spending the first 18 years of his career with the Packers.

Below is the full list from 2022.

  1. Tom Brady, QB, Buccaneers
