Every Wednesday night throughout the offseason the NFL Network is counting down the Top 100 players of 2012. Currently, only one Bears player is on the list, Lance Briggs, who came in at No. 72. Briggs was ranked ahead of linebackers' Derrick Johnson (Chiefs), NaVorro Bowman (49ers), London Fletcher (Redskins) and D'Qwell Jackson (Browns).

Some notables from the NFC North that made the list:
No. 92: John Kuhn (FB), Green Bay Packers
No. 80: Jordy Nelson (WR), Green Bay Packers

With the rankings not even halfway complete, there's still a good chance you'll see other Bears players crack the Top 100:

---Statistics from 2012---

Brandon Marshall: 81 REC, 1,214 YDS and 6 TD
Jay Cutler: 2,319 YDS, 13 TD and a 85.7 QB rating

Matt Forte: 1,487 total yards, 4 TD and 4.9 YPC

Brian Urlacher: 102 tackles, 2 FR, 3 INT and 1 TD

Devin Hester: 28 punt returns, 2 TD; 33 kick returns, 1 TD
