These are five players on the Buffalo Bills who deserve to get more recognition this upcoming season.

Every team has their stars or the players who get more attention and the Buffalo Bills are no different. When Bills fans, or other team’s fans, think about the players on the team the first names that come to mind are usually Josh Allen, Tre’Davious White, Tremaine Edmunds and now Stefon Diggs will be joining this list.

While all these players are good in their own right there are a number of unsung heroes on this team that have had significant contributions to their success. These are five players that were with the Buffalo Bills last year that could finally get the league-wide recognition they deserve this coming season starting with their starting safeties.

Micah Hyde and Jordan Poyer

The Buffalo Bills have one of the best secondaries in the NFL and while Tre’Davious White is a big part of this, what Micah Hyde and Jordan Poyer brings to the defense is vastly underrated.

Both safeties joined the Bills in 2017 and while Hyde did make the Pro Bowl in 2017, they have not regularly been included as one of the best at their position. The thing that makes these two so good is the fact that they are both well-rounded safeties. In the past three years, the two players have combined for over 500 total tackles, 19 interceptions, and seven fumble recoveries.

The versatility these two brings makes it easier for the coaching staff to switch up responsibilities and keep offenses guessing. On any given play, Hyde can drop back into coverage while Poyer is playing in the box or vice versa.

This offseason it seems that Micah Hyde and Jordan Poyer are starting to get more recognition but they are playing at a level that they should be regularly at the top of the position.
