Levitre a top 10 pass block guard

Posted by Chris Brown on July 13, 2012 – 9:33 am

The film reviewers and stat crunchers at Pro Football Focus are at it again this time assessing which NFL guards had the best pass blocking efficiency and Buffalo’s Andy Levitre cracked the top 10.

Levitre was ranked ninth in the league over the past three seasons (2009-2011) with a PBE of 97.4 (the closer to 100 the better). PFF takes total pressures allowed and weighs it against total number of snaps that player spends in pass protection, then with a few other calculations [(.75 x # of sacks and hurries + sacks) /(# of pass blocking snaps) x 100] – 100 = PBE. 

Here’s the top 10.

Rank Player Current Team Pass Protects Total Pressure PBE
1 Brandon Moore NYJ 1585 38 98.17
2 Brian Waters NE 1689 43 98.05
3 Josh Sitton GB 1791 45 98.03
4 Bobbie Williams BLT 1454 36 98.02
5 Steve Hutchinson TEN 1480 38 97.97
6 Carl Nicks TB 1959 53 97.87
7 Rob Sims DET 1945 57 97.74
8 Richie Incognito MIA 1396 43 97.51
9 Andy Levitre BUF 1471 48 97.43
