NFL Network: 49ers’ Aldon Smith ranks 33rd on Top 100 Players of 2014



Despite missing a portion of the 2013 season, San Francisco 49ers OLB Aldon Smith continues to be a force on the field. Whether wrecking havoc in the backfield or hunting down quarterbacks for negative yardage, Smith has been one of the best pure pass-rushers in the game. Due to his elite skill set, Smith was once again voted as one of today’s greats as he was ranked No. 33 on NFL Network’s Top 100 players of 2014.

However, he did slide 26 spots as he was ranked No. 7 last year but nonetheless Smith is still regarded as one of the best. Watch what his peers had to say in this highlight reel as Aldon had another Pro Bowl type season in 2013.
