As the NFL Top 100 Players show continues its countdown, Cincinnati Bengals wide receiver A.J. Green has been voted as the 16th-best player in the league, climbing 61 spots from last year’s ranking.

Green was selected to Pro Bowl in initial voting in  2012 as he got his first start in the game. His national recognition is already among the best in the NFL, as was the top AFC vote-getter at WR in ’12 on the  Associated Press All-Pro team.

His 101 receptions, 1550 receiving yards and 11 TDs in his first 20 NFL games made him the first player in NFL history to record 100 receptions, 1500 receiving yards and 10 TDs in that span.

Green’s nine-game streak in 2012 with at least one TD reception set a Bengals record for longest streak in a single season. If he keeps up this same pace in 2013, he’ll find himself much higher in next year’s top 100. Here’s a link to Green being named on NFL.com.
