There he is: New Orleans Saints wide receiver Michael Thomas clocked in at the No. 5 spot in the NFL's Top 100 Players of 2020, and his fellow players had only strong endorsements to offer him.
Mahomes, the Super Bowl MVP, was surprisingly ranked behind Seattle Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson and Los Angeles Rams defensive tackle Aaron Donald in voting, which was conducted by player surveys last season.
It has become an annual tradition that the NFL Network does every offseason to drive ratings and drama-the NFL's Top 100 player's list. He was ranked No. 1 past year and No. 7 in 2018. "I can't believe it".
Given that Mahomes led Kansas City to the Super Bowl title last season, people were thrown off by him being ranked lower than Jackson, who had an early postseason exit for the second year in a row. Then he signed a massive long-term contract extension with the Chiefs. Today on FS1's Undisputed, Shannon Sharpe echoed that very same sentiment as he was incredulous at the fact that Mahomes would be so disrespected and placed in fourth, especially after winning a Super Bowl this past year.
