Eagles running back LeSean McCoy checked in at No. 45 Thursday night on the NFL Network's countdown of the league's top 100 players.  Last season he was the No. 18 ranked player in the league.

Here's the interview with McCoy on the NFL Network

There was little question McCoy would make the list. After all, his strong 2011 season had some calling him the best running back in the league. It was just a matter of how disappointing 2012 season would hurt him.

So far, McCoy is the only Eagles player on the list. Last year, Jason Peters (42), Jason Babin (44), Trent Cole (57),  Mike Vick (70), DeSean Jackson (71) and Nnamdi Asomugha (79) all cracked the top 100 and have yet to be unveiled.  However, there is a good chance that McCoy is the only Eagle that makes the list in 2013 following a 4-12 season.
