NFL Network released their top 10 players on its Top 100 Players of 2015 countdown, and Seattle Seahawks running back Marshawn Lynch came in at No. 9. Lynch moved up five spots from last year’s ranking.
Lynch had another stellar season in 2014, rushing for 1,306 yards and a career high 13 rushing touchdowns. Although Lynch is approaching the dreaded 30-year old age where running backs seem to decline, Lynch is showing no signs of slowing down. With new weapons this season, Lynch should be in line for another monster year.
The only running back ranked ahead of Lynch was Philadelphia Eagles running back DeMarco Murray, who came in at No. 4.
While Lynch was the only player on the Seahawks to crack the top 10, seven other Seahawks made the top 100 list. Defensive end Michael Bennett (No. 90), linebacker Bobby Wagner (No. 69), safety Kam Chancellor (No. 41), tight end Jimmy Graham (No. 31), quarterback Russell Wilson (No. 22), safety Earl Thomas (No. 21) and cornerback Richard Sherman (No. 11).
