On Saturday night, April 30th at 8:00 p.m., NFL Network will premiere it’s new show, “The Top NFL Players of 2011” as voted on by NFL players.

Each episode will feature 10 players who made the cut. Each of those players will be saluted by someone who watched their play up-close and personal – from a coach, to a teammate, to a rival on the field.

The series will continue weekly on Sundays until the best player of 2011 is revealed on July 3rd.

The producers of NFL Films utilized the league’s most dynamic and recognizable names in the game today to assemble their list, a task usually reserved for Hall of Fame voters and media.

Immediately following each episode will be The Top 100: Players of 2011 – Reactions, a one-hour recap show that takes a closer look at the countdown with analysis and commentary from NFL Network analysts, special guests and fans.

Where did Ben rank in the Top 100? How about Troy Polamalu? James Harrison? What about your other favorite Steelers? You’ll have to tune it to find out!
