Taking a page from NFL Network’s Top 100 Players, CBSSports.com is doing their own list, and four Bills appear in their rankings.
CBS columnist Pete Prisco put together a list that includes four Bills players, three of whom man Buffalo’s vaunted defensive line. Here are the players he listed and their number rank.
- Marcell Dareus, DT, Buffalo Bills: He has developed into a force in the middle of the Buffalo defense. When his weight is in check, he has the ability to dominate inside. It’s too bad he will miss the opener this season for a league-imposed suspension.
- Mario Williams, DE, Buffalo Bills: He had 14 1/2 sacks last season for the Bills as a part of one of the league’s best defenses. Williams had a sack in all but four games last season, getting four against the Dolphins in one game. He’s also solid against the run.
- LeSean McCoy, RB, Buffalo Bills: McCoy was traded to the Bills in March in a blockbuster deal that will make him the feature back in Rex Ryan’s ground-and-pound attack. McCoy’s numbers dropped some last season for the Eagles, but he is still only 26. The concerning number is his yards-per-rush went down to 4.2 last season from 5.1 the year before.
- Kyle Williams, DT, Buffalo Bills: He had 5 1/2 sacks last season and continued to be a good run player for a smallish defensive tackle because he plays with such good leverage.
