Training camps have started around the league, but the first week of events will consist of mostly testing for any possible COVID-19 exposure. With a little extra time before practices kick-off, the NFL Network has been busy airing its annual top 100 players list ahead of the season. USA TODAY’s Touchdown Wire has also released its list, titled “The top 101 players in the NFL today.”

Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson has landed as the third-best player in the league.

“Russell Wilson is a magician behind the line of scrimmage,” writes Doug Farrar. “He is one of the best – if not the best – at creating under pressure, off of structure and outside of the pocket. Last year he was pressured on 243 snaps – second-most in the league – and put up great-to-elite numbers in those situations. On those 243 pressured dropbacks, Wilson completed 85 of 168 passes for 1,217 yards and ten touchdowns, against just two interceptions.”

“Wilson is that rare breed of quarterback that can beat you from the pocket, but can be just as dangerous when pressured, or outside of the pocket,” Farrar continues. “That makes for a darn good combination.”

Wilson will appear in Wednesday’s finale of the NFL Network’s “Top 100 Players of 2020” as the top-10 are revealed.
