For the first time in his career, Garett Bolles has made the NFL Top 100 annual player rankings, as decided by the players themselves.
The fifth-year player clocked in at No. 82 on Sunday as NFL Network unveiled Nos. 100-41 during a six-hour block dedicated solely to the "The Top 100 Players of 2021" series.
"That jump that he made this year was really cool to watch," safety Justin Simmons said during the show. "I thought he was deserving of a Pro Bowl nod, but all that stuff will come. If he keeps doing what he's doing, that stuff will come. The sky's the limit for him."
Bolles emerged as one of the league's best left tackles in 2020, as he earned second-team All-Pro honors from the Associated Press. The Utah product didn't allow a single sack, according to Pro Football Focus, and had the third-best PFF grade among all tackles.
Ahead of training camp, teammate Von Miller told Denver media that Bolles is at or very near the top of the league at his position.
"He is the best left tackle in the league," Miller said. "If he's not the best, he's top three and he's not [No.] 3. I'm so proud of him. Y'all know about my relationship with Garett Bolles and the type of jump that he's made."
