No Texans player cracked the top 10 of the NFL Network annual list of top 100 players, but DeAndre Hopkins and J.J. Watt came close.

Hopkins is ranked 11th and Watt is ranked 12th, respectively, on the list voted on by players.

A two-time All-Pro, Hopkins caught 111 passes for 1,572 yards and 11 touchdowns last season. He ranked 13th on the list last year.

A three-time NFL Defensive Player of the Year, Watt came back from injuries last year and recorded 16 sacks and seven forced fumbles for the AFC South champions. Watt ranked first on the list in 2015.

The top 10 players, with an order to be announced Wednesday night, will be comprised of New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady, New Orleans Saints quarterback Drew Brees, Oakland Raiders wide receiver Antonio Brown, Los Angeles Rams defensive tackle Aaron Donald, Atlanta Falcons wide receiver Julio Jones, Los Angeles Rams running back Todd Gurley, Denver Broncos outside linebacker Von Miller and Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers.
