James Conner Lands at No. 62 on NFL Top 100



Three members of the Pittsburgh Steelers find themselves as part of the NFL Top 100 list as the countdown continues.

With Cameron Heyward checking in at number 88 and T.J. Watt in at 91, James Conner now joins his two teammates as one of the top NFL players, as voted by fellow players.

“That’s a man’s back right there” said Cleveland Browns defensive end Myles Garrett. “He runs it kinda old school. He doesn’t try to make you miss, he tries to run through you. He’ll try to stiff arm you, get around you, but the best way’s to go straight through someone and that’s his mentality”.

Conner arrives to the doorstep of 2019 with expectations of repeating a spectacular performance just a season ago, rushing for 973 yards in 13 games for 12 touchdowns while also adding 55 receptions for 497 yards and one touchdown.

“What can you say? Le’Veon Bell’s not playing so James Conner steps in and does everything just as good, if not better, than Le’Veon has been doing the last couple years” said Browns linebacker Joe Schobert. While Conner has yet to hit Bell-type numbers, many expect a big season out of the third year running back.
