Cleveland Browns running back Nick Chubb made his debut on the NFL’s annual list of the league’s Top 100 Players on Tuesday at No. 36.

While that puts Chubb as the highest-ranked of the four Browns players on the list, it still feels a little disrespectful toward the league’s best running back.

Chubb finished up a solid rookie season by rushing for 1,494 yards in 2019 while earning a Pro Bowl selection. That rushing total was the highest by a Cleveland running back since 1965 and the most in franchise history by a running back not named Jim Brown.

Chubb just missed out on the rushing title, finishing second to Derrick Henry of the Tennessee Titans, but Chubb was the league’s co-leader in broken tackles with 32, and his 1,772 yards from srimmage and 298 rushing attempts were both the league’s third-highest totals, according to NFL.com.

In just two seasons with the Browns, Chubb has rushed for 2,490 yards, which puts him at No. 11 on the franchise’s all-time rushing list, 16 touchdowns (tied for No. 13 all-time) and averaged 5.1 yards per carry.

In addition to Chubb, defensive end Myles Garrett (No. 80) and wide receivers Jarvis Landry (No. 61) and Odell Beckham Jr. (No. 59) made appearances on the list.

The rankings conclude tonight at 8 on the NFL Network.
