Ranking the top NFL players of 2019: Nos. 50 - 26

Each year, NFL players rank their peers to determine the top 100 stars in the league. 

The list is published piece by piece, from No. 100 all the way to No. 1, in videos that feature commentary by the player's teammates and opponents. 

There was quite a bit of movement on the 2019 list compared to 2018. Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger was among those who fell the farthest, landing at No. 44 after being ranked No. 18 last year. 

Alternatively, Green Bay Packers defensive tackle David Bakhtiari jumped from No. 91 all the way to No. 43, and New York Jets safety Jamal Adams leaped over 60 spots this year. 

Below, take a look at the players ranked from No. 50 to No. 26, beginning with Cleveland Browns quarterback Baker Mayfield. Click on each player's name to find out more about their ranking.
