Will a member of the Rams appear on the NFL's top 100 list?

Time to pounce - USA TODAY Sports

NFL Network has aired 20 players in their annual top 100 NFL players list. The list is made by the current players in the NFL, and the premise is to vote on players based on their 2012 season. They started going through the list, starting at #100, last Saturday, and today the network aired #90 to #81.

Here are the results so far:

Rank Player 2012 Team 2013 Team Position 2012 L.C. Ref
81 Colin Kaepernick San Francisco 49ers Quarterback NR
82 Logan Mankins New England Patriots Guard Decrease 18
83 Lance Briggs Chicago Bears Outside linebacker Decrease 11
84 Steve Smith Carolina Panthers Wide receiver Decrease 49
85 Charles Woodson Green Bay Packers Free Agent Cornerback / Strong safety Decrease 49
86 London Fletcher Washington Redskins Inside linebacker Increase 1
87 Bernard Pollard Baltimore Ravens Tennessee Titans Strong safety NR
88 Jacoby Jones Baltimore Ravens Wide receiver NR
89 Cameron Wake Miami Dolphins Outside Linebacker return
90 Percy Harvin Minnesota Vikings Seattle Seahawks Wide receiver NR
91 Troy Polamalu Pittsburgh Steelers Strong safety Decrease 72
92 Gerald McCoy Tampa Bay Buccaneers Defensive tackle NR
93 Anquan Boldin Baltimore Ravens San Francisco 49ers Wide receiver NR
95 Daryl Washington Arizona Cardinals Linebacker NR
95 Max Unger Seattle Seahawks Center NR
96 Dashon Goldson San Francisco 49ers Tampa Bay Buccaneers Free safety NR
97 Heath Miller Pittsburgh Steelers Tight end NR
98 Maurice Jones-Drew Jacksonville Jaguars Running back Decrease 86
99 Trent Williams Washington Redskins Offensive tackle NR
100 Dennis Pitta Baltimore Ravens Tight end NR [138]

Wikipedia makes everything so easy. But if you want to watch footage on the players, and you should because the program is great, go here. If you'd like to see the full 2012 list, go here.

Three Rams made the countdown last year.

Players that could be on it this year:

Chris Long (2012 #84)

Cortland Finnigan (2012, #93)

Steven Jackson (2012, #37)

Players who could appear on the 2014:

James Laurinaitis- He has the stats, he has the pedigree, but he doesn't have the respect. If the Rams can become a top 10 defense next year, and Laurinaitis can make a couple of plays in big games, he should appear on the list.

Tavon Austin- Austin has an advantage over everyone on the list, he already has the buzz. Players already expect Austin to be a big time player. If Austin can return some kicks for touchdowns, and make big plays like he did in college, it will be an upset if he's not on the list.

Sam Bradford- There's always a lot of quarterbacks on the list. Why isn't Bradford? He's not really popular. The only way he will end up on this list is the playoffs. The players really don't care about numbers, well that's a part of it, but even if Bradford threw for 4,000 yards he wouldn't be on the list.

Robert Quinn- One of the best pure pass rushers in the league. Quinn finished the season with 10.5 sacks last season. He will most likely need a 13 sack season to appear on the list next year. There's a good chance that he could achieve that goal.

Jared Cook- The former Tennessee Titan tight end received a big contract this off-season. If Cook becomes the play maker that people (including me) think he can become, he should end up on this list.

Janoris Jenkins- The players will love Jenkins. Without having met him, he seems like a cool guy. If he continues building on his solid rookie season, he should end up on the list.
