Coming in at No. 75 of the Top 100 players is Earl Thomas III.

Even on a new team, Thomas proved he is still well worth his reputation and contract as he allowed Marlon Humphrey to Marcus Peters to abuse cornerbacks and protect the deep zone if anything finally came his way.

“When I heard we were signing him I was super excited,” said Marlon Humphrey. “All-Pro safety and I’m a corner. I love it.”

There’s no surprise that Thomas III is deserving of a Top 100 ranking. He’s arguably still one of the best safeties in the NFL and even past his prime, he’s making plays and helping win football games.

In 2019, Thomas had two interceptions for 38 yards, four passes defensed, a forced fumble and two sacks. Reminder, his first sack in his NFL career was this season with the Baltimore Ravens. No doubt he’ll be looking to improve on his total in 2020.
