Emmanuel Sanders had his breakthrough season in 2014, stuffing his satchel with a collection of firsts: 100-yard game, 1,000-yard season, 100-catch season, Pro Bowl appearance.
Now he can add his first inclusion on the NFL's Top 100 list.
Sanders broke into the rankings at No. 95 in the rankings, which were determined by votes from NFL players.
Sanders is the first Bronco ranked this year, and he certainly will not be the last. The 2014 top 100 featured eight members of the 2014 Broncos: Peyton Manning (No. 1), Demaryius Thomas (No. 49), DeMarcus Ware (No. 56), Wes Welker (No. 73), Von Miller (No. 76), Aqib Talib (No. 79), T.J. Ward (No. 82) and Louis Vasquez (No. 97).
The rankings will be revealed 10 names at a time on 10 episodes of the Top 100 Players of 2015 series. The fifth season of Top 100 airs each Wednesday at 7 p.m. MDT on NFL Network through July.
