Kyle tops NFL DTs in advanced metrics

Posted by Chris Brown on January 13, 2014 – 9:44 am

Bills DT Kyle Williams has already been recognized by his peers and opposing coaches as a Pro Bowl caliber player for the third time in his career. The advanced metrics football site AdvancedNFLStats.com agree wholeheartedly in Williams with their figures backing them up.

Williams is rated as the highest defensive tackle in the NFL for his performance in 2013. The veteran DT had the highest Win Probability Added figure with his time on the field for the Bills last season.

In addition Buffalo’s Marcell Dareus was rated seventh overall, making the Bills one of just two NFL clubs with two players in the top 10 on the list. The other team was the Detroit Lions, who had Ndamokung Suh and Nick Fairley. They rated second and fifth respectively.
