The latest installment of the 2015 NFL Top 100 list saw the third member of the Green Bay Packers make an appearance. As announced on the NFL Network Wednesday, running back Eddie Lacy came in at No. 60.

Lacy's inclusion on the 2015 list marks the second time in as many opportunities that he has been selected. Last year, Lacy's first year of eligibility, he came in at No. 90 shortly after winning Offensive Rookie of the Year honors.

Though the 2014 season started out slowly for Lacy, he ended up with his best campaign to date. In 38 fewer carries than his rookie season, he rushed for 1,139 yards and nine touchdowns, adding 427 yards and four touchdowns via the passing game. Lacy also upped his yards per attempt to 4.6, an improvement of approximately half a yard. Lacy remained a dynamic presence during the Packers' postseason run, averaging 87 rushing yards per game and at a clip of 4.4.

More Green Bay players will be revealed in the coming installments of the 2015 NFL Top 100, though how many isn't clear. Aaron Rodgers, Clay Matthews and Jordy Nelson were all selections last year and are likely to be included again.
