Muhammad Wilkerson Rated 42nd Best Player in NFL

Evan Habeeb-USA TODAY Sports

I think NFL Network's rating of the top 100 players in the league is kind of ridiculous, but this one they got right.

In a vote by his peers, Jets DL Muhammad Wilkerson earned the No. 42 spot on NFL Network's Top 100 Players of 2014.

"I think he's the greatest football player that I've ever had the privilege of playing with," said Jets LB Demario Davis.

Wilkerson, a 6'4", 315-pounder, established career highs in 2013 with a team-leading 10.5 sacks in addition to 91 tackles.

Most people get that Wilkerson is a really good player, but I'm not sure a lot of people comprehend how special he is. A lot of elite players get there by doing one or two things exceptionally well. Wilkerson lines up all over the place for the Jets. He plays over the ball on passing downs. He plays the three technique in a 4-3. He plays the five technique in a 3-4. He lines up at end in a 4-3, and he has success everywhere. There aren't many players who can do that.

He's on path to become the modern Joe Klecko.
