Tennessee Titans running back Derrick Henry and defensive lineman Jurrell Casey have made the NFL top 100 players of 2019 list.
It was a good start to the NFL top 100 players of 2019 list for the Tennessee Titans, as both running back Derrick Henry and defensive lineman Jurrell Casey made the cut.
The NFL Network began its countdown on Monday night, starting with No.’s 100 to 91. The list is compiled based on voting done by the players themselves. We have the full results for this range listed below.
Henry, who is entering his fourth season in the NFL, cracked the list for the first time in his career, coming in at No. 99. Casey, who came in at No. 92, is making his fourth appearance on the top 100, as he was also recognized on the 2015, 2017, and 2018 lists.
The Titans back earned his spot on the list after posting 1,059 rushing yards and 12 touchdowns in 2018. Henry exploded in the last four weeks of the season to the tune of 585 yards and seven touchdowns.
In Week 14 against the Jacksonville Jaguars, Henry destroyed the Titans’ division rival with 238 yards and four touchdowns on 17 carries, which included a record-tying 99-yard touchdown run. Henry also received an ESPY nomination for Best Play for his efforts.
Casey also did his thing in 2018. The 29-year-old totaled seven sacks, 62 combined tackles (11 for loss) and 11 QB hits. Another stellar season for the former third-round pick earned him his fourth-straight Pro Bowl selection.
News came down on Monday that Casey would start training camp on the physically unable to perform list, so his health will be something to monitor this summer. He remains a vital part of the Titans defense once again this season with his skill as a pass-rusher.
Now the watch begins for two other Titans players.
Safety Kevin Byard and left tackle Taylor Lewan are both elite players at their respective positions. We’d expect both to make this list at some point, but the Titans and their players being overlooked is far too common.
Here are the full results for 100 through 91:
100. S Eric Weddle, Los Angeles Rams
99. RB Derrick Henry, Tennessee Titans
98. WR Tyler Lockett, Seattle Seahawks
97. CB Byron Jones, Dallas Cowboys
96. QB Carson Wentz, Philadelphia Eagles
95. CB Kyle Fuller, Chicago Bears
94. T Mitchell Schwartz, Kansas City Chiefs
93. LB T.J. Watt, Pittsburgh Steelers
92. DL Jurrell Casey, Tennessee Titans
91. LT Andrew Whitworth, Los Angeles Rams
NFL Network will broadcast the countdown every night through Wednesday, July 31st, with each episode airing at 8 p.m. CT. The final night will be broken into two episodes, with the top five airing at 9 p.m. CT after No.’s 10 through six are shown at 8 p.m. CT.
