It may be surprising to see that there aren’t many current or recent Bills players on this list. Then again, it may not be all that surprising. As you all know, Buffalo hasn’t been that great in recent memory. Still, we needed at least a few modern players to make an appearance.

It just so happens Kyle Williams is the top modern player on this list, here at No. 19.

While it’s a bit disappointing to realize the Bills haven’t had the luxury of top talent in recent years, it’s easy to remember the greatness that has been Williams. One of the more underrated and overlooked defensive tackles in the league for much of his NFL career, the 2006 fifth-round pick has certainly made the most of his opportunity with the franchise.

A truly dominant force along the interior, Williams has always shined as a do-it-all defensive presence. Whether he’s stuffing the run or collapsing the pocket, the Bills can always rely on him to make life difficult for opposing offenses.

Even with six Pro Bowls and an All-Pro selection to his name, Williams definitely doesn’t get the credit he deserves. And yet, he seems to relish the underdog role he’s spent his entire career filling. The Bills love having him, which is why he’s spent all 13 of his seasons in Buffalo.
