Colts’ Luck youngest among NFL’s top 10 players, according to ranking

Indianapolis Colts quarterback Andrew Luck was voted by NFL players as the seventh best player in the league in a listing compiled by the NFL Network.

Luck, who is entering his fourth season with the Colts, is the youngest player in the top 10 of the NFL Network’s annual Top 100 list. The 25-year-old rose 23 spots from the No. 30 slot last year.

Houston Texans’ defensive lineman J.J. Watt was voted No. 1.

Luck was ranked fourth among quarterbacks on the list behind Green Bay’s Aaron Rodgers (No. 2), New England’s Tom Brady (No. 3) and Denver’s Peyton Manning (No. 5).

Last season, Luck, who threw for an NFL-leading 40 touchdowns, earned his third straight Pro Bowl honor.

Three other Colts made the list: receiver T.Y Hilton at No. 35, defensive back Vontae Davis at No. 59 and place kicker Adam Vinatieri at No. 98.
