Two Green Bay Packers were revealed in NFL Network’s latest "Top 100" series on Wednesday night with running back Eddie Lacy coming in at No. 90 and receiver Jordy Nelson at No. 83.

The list is determined solely by the vote of current NFL players.

Lacy was honored as the NFL rookie of the year after rushing for 1,178 yards and 11 touchdowns on 284 carries last season. He was the first Packers rookie running back to clear the 1,000-yard threshold and be honored as NFL offensive rookie of the year since John Brockington in 1971.

Two other rookies – New York Jets defensive tackle Sheldon Richardson (No. 94) and Buffalo linebacker Kiko Alonso (84) – also have cracked the top 100 list.

Nelson was the first receiver to be unveiled thus far. After battling lower-body injuries throughout the 2012 season, Nelson battled back with career-highs in receptions (85) and receiving yards (1,314).
