The Buffalo Bills already have one player on the NFL Top 100 list, but time is running out for another player to make it on the list.

The NFL Top 100 list isn’t some scientific study, but it does give fans a general idea of the best players in the NFL for the upcoming season.

The Buffalo Bills are already represented on the list by Micah Hyde, who came in at No. 62 overall, but fans are waiting to see if he will be joined by anyone else. Specifically, LeSean McCoy.

The countdown continues Monday night with players 30-21, which is where McCoy came in last year. He showed up at No. 27 overall after finishing No. 42 overall in 2016.

Since this list is voted on by the players, McCoy is an easy choice due to the fact he has made a name for himself for being so consistent even as time has passed and his body has aged.

He finished last season with 1,138 rushing yards and six rushing touchdowns, helping to carry the offense and the team to the postseason. Because of that, I don’t see why he won’t show up Monday night somewhere in the 30-21 range.

McCoy not making the list this year would have no actual bearing on his abilities but may serve to motivate him just that much more to prove that he is still the same elite back he has always been. The Bills went out and got Chris Ivory to help carry the load on offense, but McCoy is still being relied upon to put up big numbers.

If he doesn’t do that, the team may be in trouble given the quarterback situation.

We will have to wait and see if McCoy makes the list, but I would be genuinely surprised if he doesn’t. After the season he had last year, there is no reason why players would suddenly deem him not worthy of making the list once again.
