ATHENS — Former Georgia running back NicK Chubb finished No. 36 on the NFL Top 100 list, as voted on by the league’s players.

Chubb, in his second year in the NFL with the Cleveland Browns, was second in the league in rushing with 1,494 yards, just 46 yards behind rushing champ Derrick Henry.

 

Henry was ranked second among running backs (10th overall) on the Top 100 list behind Carolina’s Christian McCaffrey (No. 6).

McCaffrey was third in the league in rushing (1,387) but also second in receptions (116 for 1,005 yards).

Minnesota’s Dalvin Cook — the older brother of Georgia tailback James Cook — was the third-highest running back ranked at No. 21 overall.

Dallas’ Ezekiel Elliott (24), New York’s Saquon Barkley (31) and Green Bay’s Aaron Jones (33) were other running backs ranked ahead of Chubb, who finished seventh at his position.

Baltimore quarterback Lamar Jackson was the No. 1 overall ranked player.

Former Georgia running back Todd Gurley was also ranked in the NFL Top 100 by his peers.

Gurley, who will play for the Atlanta Falcons this season, was ranked No. 51 overall.

Gurley ranked No. 20 in the NFL in rushing yardage last season (857), but he was fifth in touchdowns (12) in what proved to be his final season with the Los Angeles Rams.
