Which Bills Cracked ESPN Top 100 Players List?

The Buffalo Bills were tied for second in the AFC with five players making ESPN's top 100.

The Buffalo Bills were among the most well-represented teams in ESPN's Top 100 players heading into the 2023 season. 

ESPN's list predicts the top 100 players in the upcoming season.

Buffalo had five players make the list, which tied them for the second-most in the AFC with the Cincinnati Bengals, Kansas City Chiefs and Los Angeles Chargers. 

Josh Allen (7), Stefon Diggs (23), Tre'Davious White (68), Matt Milano (85) and Von Miller (97) were the five Bills players in the top 100.

The San Francisco 49ers led the way with eight players, while the Miami Dolphins and Philadelphia Eagles had seven. Miami would have been tied with San Francisco if it weren't for Jalen Ramsey's knee injury that'll keep him out most of the season. The Bengals were the only team with two players in the top five, with quarterback Joe Burrow (4) and receiver Ja'Marr Chase (5). 

Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes was ESPN's top player.

Allen was the No. 4 quarterback on the list, trailing Mahomes, Jalen Hurts (3) and Joe Burrow. ESPN projects Allen to throw for 4,182 yards, 31 touchdowns and 13 interceptions. They also projected that Allen would run for 628 yards and six touchdowns. 

Other projections included Diggs having 98 catches for 1,206 yards and eight touchdowns, White totaling 71 tackles and two interceptions, Milano accumulating 123 tackles, three sacks and two interceptions, and Miller having five sacks plus 21 tackles.

Of the Buffalo players that made the list, White provides the most optimism. When healthy, he was a key cog in Buffalo's defense before tearing his ACL in 2021. He had at least two interceptions and eight passes defended in his first four seasons before the injury. 

White was also a First-Team All-Pro in 2019 and a two-time Pro Bowler in 2019 and 2020. 

If White can get back to playing at that level, he may be that missing piece the team needs to break through this season.
