As the NFL Network continued its countdown of the Top 100 players, a third Bills defensive player made the list Wednesday night. In this week's episode of the countdown from 60-51, Dareus was number 53 on this year's list.
Dareus is coming off a season in which he led the league in sacks by a defensive tackle with a career-high 10 in 2014. He also tied for second on the team in tackles for loss with 12 on the year. It earned him his second consecutive Pro Bowl berth.
The fifth-year defensive tackle's ranking of 53 is up nine spots from his appearance on the NFL's Top 100 last season when he checked in at number 62.
