In a bit of a surprise, Devin Hester was unveiled on Wednesday as No. 48 on NFL Networks Top 100 players . A surprise because:
Hester is listed as a wide receiver, yet all but two highlights are of Hester as a returner, and the narration specifically says he is in the Top 100 because of his returns;
And Hester was No. 32 last year, led the NFL with a career-second-best 16.2 yards per punt return, brought two punts and a kickoff back for TDs, yet fell 16 places.
Best guess is that the Bears will have five of the NFLs top 72 players in the final ranking.
