Beast Mode finally made an appearance on the NFL Network’s Top 100 players of 2013, as Seattle Seahawks running back Marshawn Lynch checked in at No. 24 overall, coincidentally the same as his jersey number.

Lynch came in at No. 94 last year. Lynch likely brings to a close the amount of Seahawks on the Top 100 at six overall.

Seattle players joining Lynch on the list include Richard Sherman (50), Russell Wilson (51), Earl Thomas (66), Percy Harvin (90) and Max Unger (95).

    I guess I wonder who will be ahead of him…

    Congrats to BeastMode!!

    I was just thinking that the Seahawks passed over Colin Kaepernick in the 2011 draft to pick James Carpenter. Not to debate the value of draft picks or QB’s, but can you imagine how unpopular the ‘Hawks would be right now if CK was kissing his tat’s under the blue sleeve of a Seahawk jersey?

    NFL Network just said Lynch is the 5th ranked RB on the list.

    Ok put AP ahead of him. Who are the other three?

  4. NO way he is the 5th best right now!

  5. tchristensen says:

    Eric, Will you be doing one of your roster analysis soon? Can’t wait!

  6. Foster and AD are the only two I can think of that you could argue is above him, maybe a healthy McCoy, but that wouldn’t be on this list for last year.

  7. Wow, McCoy was on that list. Interesting, best players of 12′. Hmmmmmm

  8. No way Foster is better than Lynch. I get that he is more versatile in the passing game, but look at their YPC –
    Lynch @ 5.0 YPC, Foster @ 4.1 YPC. That is a huge difference in efficiency.

    Although ideally I want to see a few more Hawks on the list ( Okung, Browner, Chancellor )
    I have to say that we’ve come a long way, baby.

    2011 NFL Top 100 – No Seahawks on the list.
    2012 NFL Top 100 – Only 2 Seahawks ( Lynch 94, Thomas 66 )
    2013 NFL Top 100 – 6 Hawks, with more to join the list next year. Congrats to our boys in blue.

  9. Clemons and Wagner should both be on the list as well and I never said Foster is better than Lynch, I said you could argue that.

  10. PFF’s top 101 from ’12 (based on overall performance over the year):
    5. Richard Sherman, CB, Seattle Seahawks
    23. Russell Wilson, QB, Seattle Seahawks
    35. Max Unger, C, Seattle Seahawks
    40. Marshawn Lynch, RB, Seattle Seahawks
    51. Percy Harvin, WR, Minnesota Vikings
    55. Russell Okung, LT, Seattle Seahawks
    58. Antoine Winfield, CB, Minnesota Vikings
    61. Bobby Wagner, LB, Seattle Seahawks

  11. princeaden says:

    Russel Okung should be a top 100 easily.

  12. bbnate420 says:

    I would guess that the 4 above Lynch are AP, Ray Rice, Foster, and Jamaal Charles. I can see an argument for Charles, and I think you’d have to put AP first.

    This list is a joke anyways. Jimmy Graham isn’t even on the list. Andrew Luck at 23. Ronde Barber was rated above ET. Enough said. A straight up joke.

  13. Marshawn should definitely be #2 RB behind AP. All Day might be #1 on this list with the year that he had. If we thought the list was suspect before, the confirmation is the omission of Jimmy Graham. How can you have Dennis Pitta and Heath Miller above Graham? Even injured he caught 85 passes and scored 9 touches.

    If Graham was the most egregious omission, Tulloch was the most ridiculous selection. Easy fix would be to bounce Stephen Tulloch off the list and give his spot to Graham. Tulloch had a solid season, but just like Warren Sapp said he’s not an impact player. Wags had a much better season, and for a better team, than this dude.

    Whoever voted for this sham of a list was guzzling some serious hater-ade. Interesting to see who the fans selected as overrated. Both Kaepernick and Luck, the majority of NFL fans who voted on thought were overrated.

  14. Best ’12 season performances at RB per PFF Top 101:
    2. Adrian Peterson, RB, Minnesota Vikings
    18. C.J. Spiller, RB, Buffalo Bills
    38. Alfred Morris, RB, Washington Redskins
    40. Marshawn Lynch, RB, Seattle Seahawks
    71. Frank Gore, RB, San Francisco 49ers
    88. Doug Martin, RB, Tampa Bay Buccaneers
    92. Ray Rice, RB, Baltimore Ravens
