We knew that a member of the Green Bay Packers who had never previously made the annual NFL Top 100 list would make his debut Wednesday. Now, the identity of that player has been revealed. The NFL Network announced wide receiver Randall Cobb as the 100th best player in the league.

In 2014, Cobb caught 91 passes for 1,287 yards and 12 touchdowns, all career highs. More than just the numbers, Cobb became one of Green Bay's most reliable playmakers on either side of the ball, making big catches including the game clincher against the New England Patriots in Week 13. The multipurpose pass catcher cemented himself as the premier slot receiver in the NFL, earning a trip to the Pro Bowl and a four-year, $40 million contract from the Packers in the process.

More members of the Packers will be revealed on the Top 100 list in the coming weeks, with reigning MVP Aaron Rodgers the favorite to land the No. 1 spot.
