Richard Sherman No. 50 on NFL Network's Top 100 players of 2013

Add some more pebbles to the enormous boulder on Richard Sherman’s shoulder.

Seattle's talkative cornerback finished tied for second in the NFL with eight interceptions and led the league in pass deflections with 32, yet Sherman checks in at No. 50 on the NFL Network’s top 100 players of 2013 list.

Go figure.

Sherman makes it five Seattle players on the top 100 list, joining Max Unger (No. 95), Percy Harvin (90), Earl Thomas (66) and Russell Wilson (51).

Running back Marshawn Lynch likely will make it six Seahawks with an appearance among the top 40 players yet to be announced.

However, it’s hard to believe that two cornerbacks in the NFL – Patrick Peterson and Antonio Cromartie to be among the final 40 players – are better than Sherman at this point in his career.
