NFL star J.J. Watt thinks he's ranked too high on NFL Network's Top 100 Players of 2017

The NFL Network recently began releasing their Top 100 Players of 2017 countdown.

Players generally jump on Twitter to complain about either not making the cut or about being too low on the ranking.

But this year Houston Texans star J.J. Watt is making his voice heard with a different complaint. The pro bowl defensive end took to Twitter calling the list a "joke" for being listed too high.
