Patrick Mahomes has reclaimed his perch atop the NFL Top 100 Players list.

The reigning NFL and Super Bowl MVP was voted by his peers as the best player in the league entering the 2023 season, landing the No. 1 spot on the NFL Top 100 Players list.

It’s the Kansas City Chiefs quarterback’s second time leading the list, which is voted on by players, after first doing so in 2021. He dropped down to No. 8 on the 2022 list.

As the rest of the top 10 was unveiled on Monday, 2022 Offensive Player of the Year Justin Jefferson came in behind Mahomes at the No. 2 spot. The Minnesota Vikings wideout somewhat surprisingly edged out 2022 NFL MVP runnerup Jalen Hurts, who rounded out the top three. It’s still an impressive finish for the Philadelphia Eagles signal-caller after not even being on the 2022 edition of the rankings.

Mahomes and Hurts are two of four quarterbacks in the top 10, along with Joe Burrow at No. 6 and Josh Allen at No. 8.

San Francisco 49ers defensive end Nick Bosa, meanwhile, leads three top-10 defenders thanks to a fourth-place finish. The reigning Defensive Player of the Year is slotted ahead of Micah Parsons (No. 9) and Chris Jones (No. 10).

Here’s a full look at the top 10 of the 2023 NFL Top 100:

  1. QB Patrick Mahomes, Kansas City Chiefs
  2. WR Justin Jefferson, Minnesota Vikings
  3. QB Jalen Hurts, Philadelphia Eagles
