The NFL Network's "Top Players of 2013" list, voted on by current NFL players, has representatives from 30 of the league's 32 teams. The two teams without a player? The St. Louis Rams and the Oakland Raiders.

A year ago, every NFL team had at least one player represented in the top 100. Darren McFadden was the only Raider on that list.

In the three-year history of NFL Network's top 100 list, this is the first year McFadden has been left off. He was ranked 98th in 2011 and 60th in 2012. The 25-year-old running back has had an injury plagued career, playing in just 19 total games over the past two seasons, rushing for a combined 1,321 yards and 6 touchdowns.

Nnamdi Asomugha (18) and Richard Seymour (66) were the only other Raiders in 2011's top 100.
