Jason Witten is the 41st ranked player in NFL

NFL Network ranks the Top 100 players every season.

Dallas Cowboys tight end Jason Witten checks in at No. 41 on the list.

Witten is the first tight end to appear, ranking higher than Tony Gonzalez (47), Antonio Gates (73), Aaron Hernandez (77), Heath Miller (97) and Dennis Pitta (100).

Last season, Witten set a single-season record for a tight end with 110 catches. He also set a record for catches in a game with 18 against the New York Giants. He continues to be one of the elite players in the NFL, regardless of his position.

The next questions for the Cowboys are where Dez Bryant, Tony Romo and DeMarcus Ware will be ranked.

Eli Manning ranked 43rd on the list. Is Romo higher?

What about Ware? He usually is near the Top 10, but injuries "slowed" him to an 11.5 sack season.

And there's Bryant, who emerged as a force with 92 catches for 1,382 yards and 12 touchdowns. Where do you place Bryant, who was third among receivers in touchdown catches?
