Megatron #3

Megatron ranks third in Top 100

Detroit Lions receiver Calvin Johnson has been voted by his peers as the No. 3 player in the NFL for the second straight year.

A year ago, he trailed Green Bay quarterback Aaron Rodgers and New Orleans quarterback Drew Brees.

The countdown of the top 100 for 2013, based on voting by the players, was completed with Thursday night's announcement on the NFL Network.

Johnson is coming off a record-breaking year in which he set the NFL single-season mark with 1,964 receiving yards. He made 122 catches and scored five touchdowns.

Other Lions voted in the top 100 include defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh (No. 40), linebacker Stephen Tulloch (63) and quarterback Matthew Stafford (76
