The NFL on Monday night released the next ten players of their Top 100 Players of 2017 list, moving from number 60 to number 51. Included in that group of players was the third Miami Dolphins player to make this years list, with defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh being ranked at 55.

Suh, who joined the Dolphins in 2015, has made the list every year since it was introduced in 2011.

“Everyone has to know where Suh is on the field,” Pittsburgh Steelers defensive end Cameron Heyward said in the NFL’s video announcing Suh’s ranking. “And, if you don’t account for him, he’s going to make that play that changes the entire game.”

Suh made his fifth-career Pro Bowl in 2016 after missing out in 2015. He started all 16 games for the Dolphins, plus the team’s Wildcard playoff game, and he recorded 72 regular season tackles, along with six passes defensed, one fumble recovery, and five sacks.

He joins running back Jay Ajayi (69) and defensive end Cameron Wake (62) as Dolphins who have been named to the Top 100 Players list so far this year.
