Starts tonight. In 2020, these Bills players were named to the top 100. I'll be very interested in seeing if anyone hits the Top 10 this year. 

#47 Tre'Davious White
#54 Stefon Diggs
#87 Josh Allen

They listed 7 surprises (high and low):

The full list won't become clear until August 28, but it is already apparent that some of these selections aren't congruent with recent production. A handful of players should have been ranked much higher due to sterling showings during the 2020 campaign, while others should have been much lower or left off entirely after their play left something to be desired.
 

With that in mind, here are the biggest surprises on the 2021 NFL Top 100 list so far.

No. 95: CB Tre'Davious White, Buffalo Bills
 

 

Bills cornerback Tre'Davious White has earned a reputation as one of the league's top playmaking cornerbacks. Despite this, he barely made the NFL Top 100 list.
 

White, an All-Pro in each of the last two seasons, has been instrumental in Buffalo's rise from the league's basement to Super Bowl contender. He's been a fixture on the defense since being selected No. 27 overall four years ago, racking up 238 tackles, 54 pass deflections, 15 interceptions, four forced fumbles and 2.5 sacks.
 

PFF noted that 17.1 percent of targets thrown into his coverage have resulted in either a pass breakup or pick. He's a nightmare for opposing quarterbacks to deal with and helps the Bills win games in a big way. 
 

There aren't many cornerbacks Buffalo would swap White out for, so his ranking of No. 95 is just too low.

The moment I saw 'the players' chose Tre at 95 I stopped paying attention to this list.

 

Granted, I hope Tre uses it as motivation, but one of the top 3 corners in the league is 95 to the players? 

 

I don't think so.

The list continues later today. Since I figure Diggs and Josh are locks, it is simply a matter of if it is today at 40-11, or next week at Top 10 (Josh, IMO).

It's nice to see Bills players in the upper quarter, but with Tre at 95, this list may as well tell me that Joe Biden got 80 million votes.

 

Neither is true.

Yeah, White finishing 95 seems shockingly low.

 

Mildly surprised that Adams finished top 10 but Diggs just missed it.  Not surprised the players gave more love to Hopkins than Diggs.

 

Wonder if Allen will be above Rodgers or not.  Figuring he'll be 7 or 8.
