Peyton Hillis not in top 100?

Cleveland Browns running back Peyton Hillis exploded on the scene last year with a career-high 1,654 yards from scrimmage and 13 total touchdowns. His 2010 season made him so popular that he won the "Madden NFL 12" cover tournament, which was decided by fan voting.

But apparently Hillis isn't garnering the same level of respect from his peers. The bruising tailback did not make the NFL Network's top 100, which was voted on by the players.

I've watched several games last season when Hillis was dominant against quality competition. Week 3 against the Baltimore Ravens (144 rushing yards) and Week 9 against the New England Patriots (184 rushing yards) are perfect examples. Are there 100 or more players better than Hillis following last season's performance?

Or is Hillis a one-year wonder, which seemed to factor into the players' thinking? Does Hillis need to put together several strong seasons in Cleveland before he deserves to be mentioned among the top 100 players?
