Patriots Talk: Four Players Fall In Top 50 NFL Players By Pro Football Focus
The Patriots have some of the NFL’s best players, but do the “Pros” think so?
Pro Football Focus has come out with its top 50 players for 2017 and four Patriot players have made the list. Tom Brady (No.3), Rob Gronkowski (No.9), Malcolm Butler (No.38) and Devin McCourty (No.49).
Brady, Gronk, and McCourty are not surprising to see in a top 50 list, but Butler is a tad surprising given the Patriots corner has only reeled in 6 interceptions in 3 NFL seasons. That interception total is very low for a corner, while he is an elite cornerback, he doesn’t scream top 50 NFL player. Gilmore for example had 11 interceptions in that same period.
