In just two short seasons, Quenton Nelson has already established himself as one of the best offensive linemen in the league, full stop. He even received the second-highest grade among guards from Pro Football Focus.

As a result of that stellar performance, Nelson received a pretty high ranking from his peers on the NFL 100 list. In fact, he's the highest-ranked guard in the history of the list.

His peers ranked him as the 29th-best player in the league. But the real story here is that since the NFL 100 list began back in 2011, no guard has ever ranked higher than Nelson.

The fact that he's already accomplished this before even turning 25 years old is incredibly impressive. It seems like the sky is the limit for No. 56.
