Playing time thru 2 for LBs

Posted by Chris Brown on August 24, 2013 – 2:44 pm

Linebackers can often make the roster if they’re not a starter with their play on special teams. Here’s a look at defensive snap counts and special teams snap counts for Buffalo’s linebackers through the first two preseason games.

LB defensive snap counts thru 2 games
Name                                    Snaps
Arthur Moats                     67
Nigel Bradham                  62
Jerry Hughes                      54
Chris White                         53
Bryan Scott                         49
Marcus Dowtin                   48
Brian Smith                         43
Manny Lawson                   41
Kiko Alonso (1 gm)          20

LB special teams snap counts thru 2 games
Name                                    Snaps
Chris White                         36
Arthur Moats                     25
Bryan Scott                         23
Brian Smith                         19
Nigel Bradham                  19
Marcus Dowtin                 19
Jerry Hughes                      17
Manny Lawson                   9
Kiko Alonso (1 gm)          4

Perhaps the most interesting figures belong to that of Chris White, who stands fourth in snaps on defense and first in snaps on special teams. If there is a candidate that fits the mold of a LB that could make because of his special teams play it’s him. He’s one of the five players we profiled in our Five Players to Watch this afternoon. Arthur Moats is another.
