With the rankings nearing the halfway mark, two Carolina Panthers have made NFL Network’s 2017 Top 100 players list, a list chosen by polling the league’s pros, so far.
This week, tight end Greg Olsen made the list at No. 67, his third straight year on the list. Last season, he ranked No. 38.
That likely reflects the Panthers’ plunge from the 2015 Super Bowl year to last year’s 6-10 record more than Olsen’s season.
He’s definitely putting up numbers that they will consider for the Hall of Fame one day.

Linebacker Thomas Davis, whose selection was announced earlier this month, ranks 89th on the list this season, a drop from No. 54.
Olsen led the Panthers in passing yards with 1,073 yards on 80 catches with three touchdowns. It was his third straight season with more than 1,000 receiving yards, which no other tight end in the NFL had done before.
