Micah Hyde (2017 – Current)

Micah Hyde was drafted by the Green Bay Packers in the 2013 NFL Draft.  He was selected in the fifth round with the 159th overall pick.  He played his college ball at Iowa and spent the first four years of his NFL career with the Packers, before joining the Buffalo Bills on a free agent deal in 2017.

During his time with the Packers, he was seemingly in and out of the starting lineup, having played in a total of 63 games, nearly every game, yet he only started in 33 of them.  Still, he recorded eight interceptions, 24 passes defensed and 227 combined tackles. It wasn’t until he signed with the Bills that his career really started to take off.  He played in 81 games so far and started every single one of them. while, recording 14 interceptions and 363 total tackles.

He was voted second-team All-Pro twice, in 2017 and again in 2021.  He was also selected to the Pro Bowl in 2017.  He and Jordan Poyer joined the Buffalo Bills together in 2017, coming from two different teams and have become the standard that all teams hope to achieve with their respective safety tandems.  Other teams can hope to have what the Bills have but there is no better safety duo in the NFL.
