The latest edition of the NFL Top 100 is out, and two Colts have made the top 30. They are players who you would expect to be up there too.
The NFL Top 100 is voted on by players in the league. They all decide who the top 100 players in the game are. The Colts already had T.Y. Hilton come in at 70 and Eric Ebron come in at 66. But these next two players are the best players on the Colts team.
Darius Leonard comes in at 26. He is the second highest rookie rated on this list, only behind Saquon Barkley. The Maniac was a monster last season, leading the league in tackles. From reports in training camp, he looks faster and better than last year, which is scary for every other team.
Leonard is the centerpiece of this defense and should be for the next decade. He is always around the ball and makes big plays. His peers have clearly taken notice of his rookie season. Now it’s up to him to live up to the expectations he has set for himself.
Andrew Luck comes in at 20. Luck was the Comeback Player of the Year last season, throwing for 39 touchdown passes. That was second to only MVP Patrick Mahomes. Luck was finally healthy last season and showed how good he is when he isn’t hurt.
The problem is he has issues staying healthy. Right now he has a calf injury that has been lingering since OTA’s. It’s gotten to the point where it is concerning. Clearly his peers respect him when he is out there on the field. Fans have to hope he can stay out there.
If the Colts go on a deep run this year, these guys could be ranked even higher up on this list next season.
