For the third time, Tom Brady was rated the NFL's premier player by a jury of his peers. The Tampa Bay Buccaneers star pushed out the Los Angeles Rams' Aaron Donald to be No. 1 on NFL Network's top 100 players list. The annual event attracted to a nearby Sunday with the final 20 uncovered. Brady delighted in perhaps of his most prolific season, leading the NFL in passing yards (5,316) and passing touchdowns (43). That was sufficient to put him in front of Donald, seemingly the league's most troublesome player. Donald had 12.5 sacks and 19 tackles for loss in the regular season and added one more 3.5 sacks during Los Angeles' championship run. Winning a second consecutive MVP wasn't sufficient to catapult Aaron Rodgers into the top spot. The Green Bay Packers quarterback by and by came in at No. 3, matching his position from a year prior. Maybe the greatest amazement accompanied Patrick Mahomes, the No. 1 player for 2021, falling to No. 8. The Kansas City Chiefs quarterback kept on torching opposing defenses last year, throwing for 4,839 yards and 37 touchdowns. In any case, his 13 interceptions were a career high, and Kansas City's 12-5 record was its worst mark since he became the starter in 2018. In any case, Mahomes' position on the list raised some eyebrows. A comparable demeanor was expressed toward Josh Allen, who slipped from tenth to thirteenth. The Buffalo Bills quarterback got done with 4,407 passing yards and 36 touchdowns through the air and 763 yards and six touchdowns on the ground. His playoff duel with Mahomes almost single-handedly cemented his status as an elite signal-caller. In any case, that wasn't sufficient to warrant a spot in the top 10 again for Allen. True to form, Micah Parsons flooded up the competitor list following his beast freshman season. The Dallas Cowboys linebacker posted 84 handles, 13 sacks and three constrained mishandles in transit to winning Defensive Rookie of the Year. Parsons came in at No. 16. However, Cooper Kupp had the greatest ascent. The Rams wide recipient was unranked in 2021 and climbed the entire way to No. 4. That will happen when you wrap up with a getting triple crown, as he drove the association in gets (145), yards (1,947) and scores (16). Coming out on top for a Super Bowl championship doesn't do any harm, all things considered.
