J.J. Watt, Arian Foster lead Texans on NFL Top 100

Posted Jun 27, 2013

Defensive end J.J. Watt was ranked 5th, while running back Arian Foster finished 8th on the NFL Network's 'NFL Top 100' list.

Defensive end J.J. Watt and running back Arian Foster made the NFL Network’s ‘NFL Top 100’ top 10, checking in at 5th and 8th, respectively. The two were selected by their NFL peers. That duo joined wide receiver Andre Johnson (14th), safety Ed Reed (18th) and left tackle Duane Brown (48th) on the list.

Watt was the NFL’s Defensive Player of the Year after leading the League in sacks (20.5) and batting down 16 passes.

Foster was the NFL’s touchdown king, finding the end zone 17 times in 2012.

Four Texans made the NFL Top 100 in 2012, as linebacker Brian Cushing ranked 54th and cornerback Johnathan Joseph was 73rd. Neither made it this summer.

Foster’s inclusion in the Top 10 meant that he was the first running back other than Adrian Peterson to earn that honor.
