Center Ryan Kalil is back and better than ever when it comes to the NFL's annual "Top 100" list.
Kalil checked in at No. 79 on the "Top 100 Players of 2016" on the NFL Network. Each Wednesday at 8 p.m. Eastern, the show unveils 10 names based on NFL players' vote.
While running back Jonathan Stewart made the list for the first time in his career last week at No. 86, this marks Kalil's third inclusion in the six-year history of the list. He was 93rd in 2014 and 99th in 2012.
Kalil, a second-round draft pick in 2007, made the Pro Bowl for the fifth time this past season after helping the Panthers lead the NFL and set a franchise record with 500 points in the regular season. Kalil anchored an offensive line that helped Carolina rank second in the league with 142.6 rushing yards per game.
