Recommended Posts

21. TRE’DAVIOUS WHITE, CB, BUFFALO BILLS

Top 101 appearances: New entry

There were other rookies that received significantly more recognition than Tre’Davious White, but the Bills’ rookie had an incredible debut season in the NFL and was named PFF’s rookie of the year. White allowed just 50.6 percent of passes thrown his way to be caught in the regular season and allowed no receptions at all from three targets in his one playoff appearance. He has four picks and 12 pass breakups over the full season counting that playoff game and did all this while being thrust into the No. 1 cornerback role for the Bills from day one after the team traded away Ronald Darby.

 

PFF Elite Stat: White led rookie cornerbacks in average cover snaps played per reception allowed (15.8).

 

95. JORDAN POYER, S, BUFFALO BILLS

Top 101 appearances: New entry

The Buffalo Bills‘ safeties were overhauled in the offseason, and a new defensive scheme only maximized their impact in Year 1. Jordan Poyer had an outstanding year for the Bills and made the PFF Team of the Week two times. Poyer had five interceptions and six pass breakups over the year, earning an overall PFF grade of 87.6.

 

PFF Elite Stat: Poyer missed only four tackles on 572 snaps in pass coverage.

 

97. MICAH HYDE, S, BUFFALO BILLS

Top 101 appearances: New entry

Another player to benefit from the Buffalo safety revamp and scheme change, Micah Hyde came over from Green Bay in the offseason and immediately upgraded the Bills’ secondary. Hyde ended the year tied for the fourth-best coverage grade among all safeties at 89.8 thanks to five interceptions and five pass breakups.
 

PFF Elite Stat: Hyde allowed 80 yards after the catch, eighth-fewest among safeties with 500-plus cover snaps.

 

99. LESEAN MCCOY, RB, BUFFALO BILLS

Top 101 appearances: 3

LeSean McCoy had another excellent season for the Buffalo Bills, a team that found itself unexpectedly in playoff contention and ended up making it all the way to the final minutes of the wild card round against the Jaguars. McCoy had an overall PFF grade of 82.3 and broke 33 tackles on 287 carries.
 

PFF Elite Stat: McCoy totaled 16 explosive (15-plus yards) runs in 2017, which was tied for the second-most among all NFL running backs.

It's good to see Poyer get some love after his Pro Bowl snub.

 

I agree, Shady's too low.

 

Interesting that they have Tre as the top ranked Bill.    Whaley got that pick right!

McCoy at 99 seems like s typo.....way too low.

 

Shady had a very good year but he had some awful games and some quiet games as well. Not saying that was all his fault, injuries and lack of talent in certain areas killed the offense at times. Shady had 4 100 yard rushing games and he had 8 games where he failed to combine for 100 yards rushing and receiving. Once again extenuating circumstances but those quiet games combined with a lower than usual TD output probably explain the lower ranking.

Was surprised Poyer was ranked higher than Hyde; maybe girlfriend raised his rating. B-)

It's based on their analytical ratings.

Tre is gonna lead this defense for the next decade 

 

He'll be even better when the Bills' DL improves.

Exactly to the point. Hopefully that will be remedied this offseason.
