The NFL's annual "Top 100 Players" returns tonight at 8 PM ET on NFL Network:
It's peer review time in the NFL.
For the seventh consecutive year, current NFL players voted to determine the top 100 players in the league today. The ballots have been counted for the 2017 edition, and NFL Network will reveal the results beginning tonight at 8 p.m. ET.
Last season, wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr. (No. 10) and quarterback Eli Manning (No. 47) represented the Giants following Pro Bowl campaigns.
Beckham placed higher than any Giant in the six-year history of the list, beating defensive end Jason Pierre-Paul's ranking of No. 24 in 2012 following the Giants' Super Bowl XLVI title run. It was Beckham's second appearance in the "Top 100" in as many seasons, while it was the third for Manning.
So who will make it this year and how high will they go?
The Giants have seven players coming off All-Pro and/or Pro Bowl seasons: safety Landon Collins (first-team All-Pro, Pro Bowl), defensive tackle Damon Harrison (first-team All-Pro), cornerback Janoris Jenkins (Pro Bowl, second-team All-Pro), Beckham (Pro Bowl, second-team All-Pro), cornerback Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie (second-team All-Pro), defensive end Olivier Vernon (second-team All-Pro) and special teamer Dwayne Harris (Pro Bowl).

Regarding the No. 1 spot, Panthers quarterback Cam Newton will look to defend his title. Last year, he dethroned Texans defensive end J.J. Watt, who was the first defensive player to top the list. Other No. 1's include quarterbacks Peyton Manning (2014), Aaron Rodgers (2012) and Tom Brady (2011), and running back Adrian Peterson (2013).
