After a sophomore season in the NFL that saw him finish third in Defensive Player of the Year voting, New York Giants safety Landon Collins is No. 28 on the NFL Network list of the Top 100 Players in the NFL. The list is voted on by players.

Here are some of the comments about Collins made by opposing players:

Washington Redskins quarterback Kirk Cousins ...

"I've seen him grow a lot from his rookie year to his second year. He just seems like a more confident player. He can play in the box and stop the run and be physical, but he can also play good against the pass."

Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver Darrius Heyward-Bey ...

"He's the best safety in the game. The numbers he's put up this year are Ed Reed, Troy Palomalu-like."

Green Bay Packers wide receiver Davante Adams ...

"He definitely is a big hitter ... he's just a tackling guy."

This is Collins’ first appearance on the list. It is highly unlikely that it will be his last.
