You've seen our 2019 NFLRank list, our projection of the top 100 players for this season. And now our experts weigh in on the results.
Which player was snubbed? Who was ranked too high or too low? Who was ranked just right? And who will be making the list in future years? Let the debating begin.
Which player was the biggest snub from this year's list?
Matt Bowen, NFL analyst: Byard isn't a top-100 player? Ridiculous. This is the guy in the secondary you want to coach. He's smart, he's tough and he can find the rock, posting a league-high 12 picks over the past two seasons. He hits in the run game, too. The production and film match up here, as does the overall skill set. He can play.
Mike Clay, NFL writer: Byard is arguably a top-20 player, so his exclusion here is nothing short of egregious. The 26-year-old has racked up 177 tackles and 12 interceptions while dominating both as a run defender and in coverage over the past two seasons. In fact, Byard and Darius Slay (No. 100 on the list) are the only two NFL players with at least 100 tackles and 10 interceptions over the past two seasons.
Dan Graziano, national NFL writer: What's this guy got to do to get a little love? Are we still holding his nondescript Buffalo tenure against him? He's one of only 14 players in the league with 2,000 receiving yards the past two seasons, and he might be the most reliable part of the most productive offense in the league.
