On Wednesday, we noted how Julian Edelman was snubbed from the NFL's list of top 100 players for 2020.

At the conclusion of the list being revealed, Nos. 101-110 were shown and Edelman just missed the cut as he was ranked as player No. 101.

Last season, Edelman finished with 100 receptions for 1,117 yards and six touchdowns. The 100 receptions were the second-most in his career and 1,117 receiving yards the most. While not making the Pro Bowl may have been a stretch, it's a knock on him to not be included in the top 100 players list.

In 2019, he was ranked No. 90 when he came off a 2018 season with 74 catches for 850 yards.

So, who were the wide receivers ranked ahead of Edelman?

Michael Thomas, DeAndre Hopkins, Julio Jones, Tyreek Hill, Mike Evans, Chris Godwin, Amari Cooper, Stefon Diggs, Devante Adams, Odell Beckham, Jarvis Landry, Tyler Lockett, Larry Fitzgerald, Keenan Allen, DK Metcalf, Cooper Kupp and Allen Robinson all made the cut.

Perhaps this could motivate Edelman even more for the 2020 season.
