Andre Johnson Comes In No. 15 On NFL.com's 2012 Top 100

NFL.com continues to reveal their Top 100 players for the 2012 season. Wednesday night, Andre Johnson was tabbed at the No. 15 spot, joining Arian Foster (No. 25), Brian Cushing (No. 54) and Johnathan Joseph (No. 73) among the Houston Texans' representatives.

Johnson is the highest ranked wide receiver on the list so far, with only the Top 10 players in the league remaining to be revealed. The Detroit Lions' Calvin Johnson and the Arizona Cardinals' Larry Fitzgerald have yet to be named, so unless NFL.com has made an egregious oversight, Johnson won't take home top wideout honors. Still, Top 15 isn't bad for a veteran who has had rotten luck with injuries lately.

Johnson edged out Wes Welker (No. 23), Steve Smith (No. 35) and Victor Cruz (No. 39) among receivers. He was just beat out by tight end Jimmy Graham at No. 14 overall.
