The NFL Top 100 is an annual television series counting down the top one hundred players in the National Football League (NFL), as chosen by fellow NFL players. The rankings are based on an off-season poll organized by the NFL, where players vote on their peers based on their performance for the recent NFL season. Only players that are not retired in the next season are eligible for consideration. In the 12-year history of the countdown, only Tom Brady has been voted No. 1 multiple times (2011, 2017, 2018, and 2022) and voted No. 1 in back-to-back years (2017, 2018).
