NFL Top 100: Maurice Jones-Drew Ranked In Top 20

Jacksonville Jaguars running back Maurice Jones-Drew is trying to get a new contract and his ranking on the NFL Top 100 could give him a bit more leverage. Last season, Jones-Drew was No. 30 on that list.

Tania Ganguli of The Florida Times-Union reports that she got a note about Jones-Drew's inclusion on the list.

Got a note saying the first Jaguar would be on Wednesday's show, and that he was on last year's list as well.

Only one player fits that description: Maurice Jones-Drew.

Jones-Drew will rank ahead of at least 12 other running backs in the Top 100, including the Baltimore Ravens' Ray Rice (No. 22), the Houston Texans' Arian Foster (No. 25) and the San Francisco 49ers' Frank Gore (No. 28).

Jones-Drew could potentially use this ranking by his fellow players as leverage to get a more lucrative contract extension done with the Jaguars organization ahead of training camp.

The episode that should show what position Jones-Drew should be ranked, which will be positions 11-20, will air Wednesday at 8 p.m. on NFL Network.
