Cornerback Aqib Talib was voted by his peers as the No. 53 player on the NFL’s 2018 Top 100 — becoming the fourth Rams player to appear on the list this year.
Highly regarded as one of the best cornerbacks in the league, the Kansas product continues to play at an elite level even headed into his 11th NFL season. Talib’s 34 career interceptions are the most by any cornerback since he was drafted in 2008. Plus, his 10 career pick-sixes are the most among any active defensive back and the third-most in NFL history.
Before joining Los Angeles this offseason, the dynamic corner had an impressive four-year run with the Broncos — consisting of four Pro Bowl appearances and a Super Bowl Championship in the 2015 season.
This year, he is expected to join Marcus Peters in the Rams’ secondary to form one of the most elite cornerback tandems in the NFL.
The 2018 Top 100 List marks Talib’s fourth-career and third-straight appearance. Left tackle Andrew Whitworth, defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh, and Peters were also named Top 100 players earlier this month.
The NFL Network will continue to air its “Top 100 Players of 2018” series every week, leading up to the final 10 athletes on Monday, June 25. Episodes will air live on NFL Network every Monday at 5 p.m. PT.
