No way Quenton Nelson didn’t make the list the second time around.
It’s worth noting that the site acknowledged how Nelson was left off last year’s list, with the video caption, “The Indianapolis Colts guard, known by some as ‘Big Q,’ earns his first career ‘Top 100’ selection this year after his second season in the league.”
The Colts publicized on Twitter that 29th is the highest ranking of an offensive guard in the top-100 list’s history.
Colts.com writer Andrew Walker posted a tweet reminder about Nelson making an impressive distinction in being named All-Pro in each of his first two years.
In the spirit of acknowledging a great player, here’s an appropriate GIF of a clapping Nelson that is often shared on Twitter.
The order of the top-10 players won't be revealed until Wednesday night. In alphabetical order, those players are L.A. Rams defensive tackle Aaron Donald, New England Patriots cornerback Stephon Gilmore, Tennessee Titans running back Derrick Henry, Arizona Cardinals wide receiver DeAndre Hopkins, Baltimore Ravens quarterback Lamar Jackson, San Francisco 49ers tight end George Kittle, Carolina Panthers running back Christian McCaffrey, Kansas City Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes, New Orleans Saints wide receiver Michael Thomas, and Seattle Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson.
