NFL Network Top-100 Players: Tristan Wirfs No. 89

August 15th, 2021

What an honor for rookie Tristan Wirfs!

He almost was in the same league as former Bucs rookie Mike “mattress-in-the-yard” Williams back in 2010.

That’s the word from Wirfs’ fellow NFL players Today it was revealed that Wirfs was voted the 89th-best player in the game per the NFL Network Top-100 Players in the NFL series. That’s the annual players vote to pick the 100 best in the game.

Wirfs finished third at his position in All-Pro voting last year, and many believe he’s the best right tackle in the game.

Williams, after his rookie season, was ranked No. 83, despite the Bucs fielding a no-name team and loads of good receiving talent in the NFL.

Joe looks for Wirfs to jump at least 20 slots next season.

    Glad to see Wirfs recognized, but the stiffs listed ahead of him makes this top100 list look silly at best and not to be taken seriously.

    So, Godwin broke his finger in Raiders game on the diving TD catch. Top 100 player means your top 10% of starters in NFL

  3. Leighroy Says:

    Actually it’s like top 14% Pete but I feel you. Hey to draft the 89th best player w the 13th overall pick is still an achievement for both Licht and Whirfs.

  4. Medicated Pete Says:

    Did you count..

    Kickers, punters, special teams KR & PR , #3 WR’s & #3 CB’s? More than 22 players are eligible

    It was Donnie that collapsed like an umbrella.

  6. Leighroy Says:

    How many of those position players are on this list?

  7. Señor Harry in Costa Rica Says:

    Last year there were 5 OTs listed in the Top 100. Not sure, but I think all were LTs.
    62 David Bakhtiari
    66 Laremy Tunsil
    74 Ronnie Stanley
    78 Tyron Smith
    82 Ryan Ramczyk

    Puts Wirfs in very good company I would say.

    Medicated Pete and Leighroy. Not sure of the criteria, but just going at face value of best 100 players in the NFL and assuming 53 players on the roster per team X 32 teams, that’s 1,696 players. 100 of those is ~6%. Regardless of who votes or whether you think the ranking is fair, being on the list puts you in a pretty elite club.
