Hard to ignore Rams Aaron Donald

Buffalo’s next opponent has a beast in the middle of their defense in DL Aaron Donald. The defensive tackle is the leader on a dominant defensive line. In fact he’s been so good through the first quarter of the season that ProFootballFocus has him rated as the best player in the entire league.

Donald had another giant game Sunday in the Rams win over the Arizona Cardinals. On Sunday he had five tackles, 1.5 sacks and a forced fumble that led to a turnover. According for PFF he is their highest rated player overall after four games this season.

Donald has the highest PFF grade of any player in 2016 with a score of 95.3, comfortably clear of the next-best and one of only six players to currently sit above 90 in the ratings.

Coming into the week he led the entire league with 17 total pressures, but had curiously yet to notch a sack. That changed in the Rams’ upset win over the Cardinals, as Donald got home twice in addition to the four hits and two hurries he recorded. For the season he now stands at 25 total pressures across only four games.
