James Bradberry had a heck of a year in 2020
New York Giants’ cornerback James Bradberry has quietly become one of top players in the NFL at his position. I think the reason we don’t hear his name much in the national media is because he’s quiet and doesn’t talk like Jalen Ramsey of the Los Angeles Rams.
Cynthia Frelund of NFL.com has compiled a list of the most of the underappreciated players in the NFL. She listed Bradberry was one of them. Here’s what she wrote about him:
With 474 snaps on the left and 396 on the right in 2020, per NGS, Bradberry traveled more than most CBs. In fact, he was one of just two corners to play 350-plus snaps on each side last season. Measuring his computer vision-derived coverage ability (passes defensed, targets resulting in no catch, interceptions and allowing fewer than 1 yard of YAC per catch), Bradberry had his best season to date. PFF agrees with my data, showing that Bradberry allowed just a career-low 70.1 passer rating last season.
Bradberry should be in for another good season in 2021 with Adoree Jackson on the opposite side of the field and a very strong set of safeties behind him. Not to mention, the Giants might finally have a respectable pass rush with addition of rookie Azeez Ojulari.
