The stat crunchers and film reviewers at Pro Football Focus have released their Pro Bowl teams and Buffalo’s two interior defensive linemen both got the nod.
Kyle Williams and Marcell Dareus were both honored for their play this season. Williams was selected as a “starter” while Dareus was listed as a backup. Here’s what they wrote.
Defensive Tackle: Gerald McCoy (TB), Ndamukong Suh (DET), Jurrell Casey (TEN) and Kyle Williams (BUF)
Backups: Dontari Poe (KC) and Marcell Dareus (BUF)
There are a lot of players who might feel wronged here. The nose tackle types who only play on early downs like Damon Harrison and Brandon Mebane are victims of their own limitations despite their excellent work against the run, while there simply wasn’t the room for Randy Starks or Jason Hatcher. It’s been a tremendous season for the DT spot, with us treating Kyle Williams as one because it’s the role that most closely resembles his on field work.
