Howard was revealed on the Top 100 list after Chargers defensive end Joey Bosa, the son of former Dolphins first-round pick John Bosa, came in at number 56. Defensive end Cameron Wake (No. 74) was the one Dolphins player on the Top 100 list last year.
This is the ninth year of the NFL Network Top 100, but this year the list is being unveiled for the first time on 10 consecutive nights at 9 p.m. Eastern time with 10 players revealed each time. The unveiling began Monday and will continue through next Wednesday, July 31 with a two-hour episode that will be followed by a “Top 100 Reactions” show at 11 p.m.
As always, the top 100 list was determined by a balloting of current players. NFL Films collected 1,098 ballots and interviewed 136 players for the series.
