Written by Pete Prisco CBS Sports released it Top 100 NFL Players For the 2021 rankings, an annual event for the sports-reporting organization.

note that it is No “NFL Top 100” produced by NFL players – the edition to be released by NFL Network Later this summer.

for vikings, Dalvin Cook was the cream of the crop, ranked 19th overall in the top 100. Cook was seeded one place ahead of Chicago Bears Edge’s Rasher Khalil Mack and one notch below Dallas Cowboys offensive lineman Jack Martin.

Prisco succinctly summarized the Vikings tailback, “He finished second in the league for 1,557 yards and also ran for 16 touchdowns. His yards-per-rush average of 5.0 shows that he is a big-play sprinter. How impressive are they?

Other Vikings players to fill the list include Justin Jefferson (#45), Danielle Hunter (#75), Harrison Smith (#77), Kirk Cousins ​​(#93), and Adam Thielen (#97).

Inexplicably, linebacker Eric Kendrick failed to make the cut, instead landing in the “honorable mention” category. Per Pro Football Focus, Kendricks was the third best LB in all land during 2020, so the total snubbing by Prisco is shocking.

For Cook, the Florida State alumnus outclassed opposing teams for 17 touchdowns inside the pandemic season. He was also the driving force that took Minnesota back from a stinking 1-5 record that stifled the team at the start of the season. The Vikings traveled back to the .500 level before falling in games against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, Dallas Cowboys, and Chicago Bears. If the Vikings had won just one of those competitions, Mike Zimmer’s team would have visited New Orleans — again — for a first-round playoff matchup. In place of Minnesota, Byers went down to The Bayou. He was slaughtered by the Saints in the wildcard round. this was it Nickelodeon sport.

Derrick Henry was the only one to follow Cook on this top 100 list. Titans Belco Halfback checked in at #11 just outside the top 10. It makes sense — over the past two seasons, Henry is different from Cook in almost every major rushing metric to do anything Received Football.

Cook and the Vikings will travel to Cincinnati for a date with the Bengals in Week 1 of the 2021 NFL season in about three months.
