The NFL Network unveiled its annual Top 100 players show Sunday evening and LSU was once again well represented on the list.

Tre’Davious White was the first player to be revealed checking in at 95 and Jarvis Landry came immediately after at 94. Tyrann Mathieu landed at 58 and Justin Jefferson is currently the highest ranked Tiger, at No. 53. What’s interesting is Jefferson finished ahead of Los Angles Chargers quarterback Justin Herbert and Washington Football Team defensive end Chase Young, the reigning offensive and defensive rookies of the year from this past season.

Because the NFL is a bunch of herbs, I can’t link the videos directly in this story. Instead they’ll be hyperlinked on the player’s names.

Tre’Davious White: 57 tackles, 11 pass deflections, 3 interceptions

Jarvis Landry: 72 catches, 840 yards, 3 touchdowns

Tyrann Mathieu: 62 tackles, 9 pass break ups, 6 interceptions; First-Team All-Pro; Pro Bowl

Justin Jefferson: 88 receptions, 1,400 yards (NFL rookie receiving record), 7 touchdowns; Pro Bowl

The entire list was not released Sunday, only players from 100 to 41 were so LSU may have another former Tiger or two be inside the top 40—most likely Devin White and Jamal Adams.
