NFL Top 100: Joe Staley Ranked No. 67, Carlos Rogers Ranked No. 69

The NFL Network continued their series of the Top 100 players in the NFL in 2012 tonight, providing us with the players ranked No. 61-70. After seeing NaVorro Bowman ranked No. 85, the 49ers had two more players in tonight's episode. Cornerback Carlos Rogers was ranked No. 69 and offensive tackle Joe Staley was ranked No. 67. 49ers.com has reaction video from both players (Staley video; Rogers video).

The list is supposedly decided on by a vote of players. I recall some tweets last year from some players who hadn't voted and were wondering who actually did vote. Whatever the case, it's still a cool recognition. In a league with upwards of 1,700 players, getting ranked among the top 100 shows some serious respect for a player.

The season was notable for both players. Both players made their first Pro Bowl appearances and both also made their first appearance on All-Pro teams, appearing on the second team unit. The 49ers will be counting on big things from both players in 2012.
