With one week to go in the NFL Network's"Top 100 Players" countdown, five players from the Green Bay Packers roster have already made the list.There will certainly be a sixth Packer added in next week's finale of the weekly TV series, but where will quarterback and NFL Most Valuable Player Aaron Rodgers wind up?It only seems logical that Rodgers should be atop the list. His competition for No. 1 will include quarterbacks Tom Brady and Drew Brees, wide receivers Calvin Johnson and Larry Fitzgerald and cornerback Darrelle Revis, among others.But with Rodgers' last two seasons including a Super Bowl ring, an MVP trophy, a 15-1 regular-season record and setting the league's all-time mark for QB rating in a single season, he should be a lock to add this to his resume.The second-highest ranked Packer will end up being linebacker Clay Matthews, who is No. 27. With his sacks falling from 13.5 in 2010 to just 6.0 this past season, Matthews fell eight spots in the rankings from a year ago.Charles Woodson, even at 35 years old, was No. 36 overall. That was 20 spots down, however, from Woodson's slot at No. 16 last year. Though the Packers' defense gave up more yards in 2011 than any team in NFL history, Woodson came away tied for the league lead with seven interceptions.Wide receiver Greg Jennings moved up 18 spots to No. 56 in this year's rankings. Jennings did not reach 1,000 yards last season for the first time since 2007, but that was due to him missing the final three regular season games with a knee injury.Fellow receiver Jordy Nelson ranked on the "Top 100" list for the first time, coming it at No. 80 -- 24 spots below Jennings -- despite leading the Packers in touchdowns, receptions and yards last season.Fullback John Kuhn was the biggest surprise, making his way onto the countdown at No. 92.Follow Paul Imig on Twitter
