Every summer, NFL Network unveils their list of the best 100 players in the league. And a familiar name is near the top of the list.

Adam Thielen, who walked on with the Vikings in 2013, was voted as the #36th best player in the NFL.

Thielen led the team with 91 receptions for 1,276 yards and four touchdowns last season for the 13-3 Vikings as he was named to his first Pro Bowl and given his first All-Pro honors.

“I try to win on every play,” Thielen said on the show, which aired on NFL Network on Monday night. “I think the biggest thing for me is consistency. Not to have one crazy play, I want to be able to do it every time … over and over and over and over and just help this team win games.”

"He's not dropping the ball, man. What else do you want to talk about?" said Packers defensive lineman Mike Daniels. "He's always open and he's not dropping the ball.

Other Vikings on the list include Harrison Smith (46), Xavier Rhodes (55), Stefon Diggs (65), Linval Joseph (83), and Kirk Cousins (94).

Thielen enters his fifth full season in the league (his sixth as a pro) with 180 catches for 2,524 yards and 10 touchdowns.
