Intro: On Wednesday night, Andrew Luck was named the No. 7 player on the NFL Network’s Top 100 players list. Why did NFL players put the Colts quarterback in the top 10 this year?





INDIANAPOLIS – NFL players have weighed in on Andrew Luck.

The consensus?

The Colts quarterback is the clear future of the NFL at the top of the quarterback hierarchy, and he's a nice guy, too.

On Wednesday night, the NFL Network debuted their final rankings for their 2015 Top 100 Players list, voted on by the players themselves.

Luck finished No. 7 on the list (he was No. 30 last year), ranking behind fellow quarterbacks Aaron Rodgers, Tom Brady and Peyton Manning.

What do players from around the league think of the three-time Pro Bowler?

Texans defensive end J.J. Watt

"He's an all-around player. He's a great player and he's going to be a great player for a long, long time."

"Part of what makes him great is he has the ability to stand tall in the pocket, take hits and throw the ball, but he also has the speed and the agility to get outside the pocket and run if he has to."

"You have to have a lot of respect for that and that's why I have so much respect for Andrew."

"When you see somebody that's at the top of their game and works so hard to be great, you have to have a lot of respect for that."

Jaguars defensive tackle Ziggy Hood

"There's only so many QBs that you can put your hands on them and he's still looking down the field."

Steelers wide receiver Antonio Brown

"He (doesn't) die easy."

Eagles outside linebacker Connor Barwin

"He seems to enjoy the physical nature of the game still, where most quarterbacks I don't' know if they enjoy it anymore."

Browns linebacker Craig Robertson

"He threw a pick and I've never seen a quarterback throw his face, his body, everything to try and get the ball back. He tried to tomahawk (Browns safety) Jimmy Leonhard. That's just the type of competitor that he is."

Browns linebacker Karlos Dansby

"He has no fear. He's fearless and he can make you miss. Andrew Luck is an all-around great quarterback."
