Tennessee Titans: Kevin Byard is still the most underrated player in the NFL

NASHVILLE, TN - NOVEMBER 05: Kevin Byard /

The NFL Top 100 players list has come out, and we now know every player on that list and Kevin Byard did not make that list for some reason.

As the NFL Top 100 list continued to countdown each player I waited and waited and waited to see where Kevin Byard would land. Now the NFL has released every player on the list and Byard is not one of those players.

The man just signed a 5-year, $70.5 million contract and is one of the best safeties in the league if not the best and somehow isn’t on the top 100 list.

This is absurd and utterly disrespectful to Byard and the Titans. I don’t know how he didn’t make the list the players would have purposely not voted for him to make sure he didn’t make the list and I don’t think he’s that hated throughout the league so that probably didn’t happen.

Byard leads the NFL in interceptions over the past two seasons with 12 and played 97% of the Titans’ defensive stats since 2017 and somehow isn’t a top 100 player? Is it fair to call this the biggest snub of all-time?

I don’t think I’m being overdramatic and I know this list doesn’t hold a lot of weight if any but he still deserves to be on the list. This alone proves outside of Tennessee he is the most underrated player in the NFL and maybe all of sports.

Find another player that leads their league in a stat like interceptions and isn’t ranked in the top 5% of players in their league. In case that made you curious don’t waste your time because you won’t find a player like that outside of Byard.

But you know what, it is what it is, and after this, I won’t say anything about it because anyone who knows anything about football knows how good Byard is, so I’m just going to sit back and let everyone continue to overlook him.

The only solution to this mishap is Deion Sanders got a hold of this list and saw a “fan” on the list and felt he had to take him off. There’s no other explanation as to why Byard didn’t make the list unless they just don’t respect the Titans or Byard.

And if they want to disrespect the Titans and Byard, that’s fine with me because the Titans could be on the verge of having a dominant season with Byard leading the defense so they could be in for a rude awakening this fall.

Marcus Mariota’s key to success is the players around him. dark. Next

2019 is going to be wild for Byard that’s all I’m going to say. He just got paid, and he’s due to go off this year, and I expect nothing less from the best safety in football.
