Leonard Williams and James Bradberry balled out in 2020
With the 2020 NFL season now officially behind us now that the Super Bowl is in the rearview mirror, Sam Monson of Pro Football Focus has released a list of the 101 best players from the 2020 season.
Two players from the New York Giants made Monson’s list.
Cornerback James Bradberry is the highest Giants’ player on the list as he came in at number 84. Here’s what Monson wrote:
Freed from the nightmare run of receivers in the NFC South, James Bradberry was immediately much more impressive for the New York Giants, even against some elite receivers. Bradberry had career-high marks in PFF grades across the board and notched three picks and 14 pass breakups, five more than a year ago. Bradberry was an excellent No. 1 corner this year.
Then New York defensive lineman Leonard Williams is at number 97 on the list. Here’s what Monson wrote about him:
In his first full season with the Giants, Leonard Williams set a career-high in pressure with 62 combined sacks, hits and hurries — seven more than his previous best. He had 30 defensive stops and was his usual excellent self as a run defender. He now gets to hit free agency coming off a quality season and looking to earn himself a big payday.
Are there any other players from the Giants that you think deserve to make this list? I think some guys like could have made the list are wide receiver Sterling Shepard, safety Logan Ryan, linebacker Blake Martinez and maybe others like Dalvin Tomlinson.
