Players voted to determine the NFL’s Top 100 for the 2022 season, an annual tradition to preview each upcoming campaign over the last 12 years.

NFL Network revealed players No. 50-21 on Sunday after revealing No. 100-51 last weekend. The remaining top 20 will be unveiled on Aug. 28.

Arizona Cardinals wide receiver DeAndre Hopkins made the list for the fifth consecutive year and sixth overall, coming in at No. 37.

Hopkins is entering his third season with Arizona after coming over in a trade that saw the Cardinals receive the wideout and a fourth-round pick in the 2020 NFL Draft in exchange for running back David Johnson, a 2020 second-round selection and a 2021 fourth-rounder.

Last season, the five-time All-Pro wide receiver reeled in 42 receptions for 572 yards and eight touchdowns while playing in only 10 games.

He missed three contests due to a hamstring injury in the middle of the year before suffering a season-ending knee injury (MCL tear) in Week 14.

Unfortunately for the Cardinals, Hopkins will have to wait until Week 7 on Thursday Night Football against the New Orleans Saints at State Farm Stadium to make his 2022 debut after being suspended six games for violating the league’s performance-enhancing drug policy.

Hopkins is the fourth Cardinals player on the list following running back James Conner (No. 80), safety Budda Baker (No. 67) and quarterback Kyler Murray (No. 57).

Baker, Murray and Hopkins all made the cut last year as well.
