    I would say that Byrd is more elite than Williams for Buffalo. I would also put Jones on the cusp for us. Everything else looks pretty good to me.

    Elite is top 5 at your position imo...

    Brady, Gronk, Wake, Pouncey, and Spiller are the only ones I could say "top 5" to.

    Cromartie may be the best CB in our division, but he's not top 5 in the league.

    Byrd is definitely top 5. And Spiller is not yet

    I disagree. Byrd can be good (but not elite) if he can get better at tackling and quits gambling on picks. He had a lot of takeaways his rookie year, but has dropped of sharply since then. He either gets a pick, or he gets burned - its one or the other with him, and lately its been the latter. I can name 5 free safeties better than Byrd.

    I think Spiller is phenomenal. If it weren't for Chan Gailey and one of the worst passing attacks in the NFL, Spiller could have been the best back of 2012. He's the only guy on the Bills that scares me.

    Wake and Fields are our only two elite players, I agree.

    Unfortunately for us the Patriots have elite talent at the most important position - QB.

    spiller doesn't run b/t the tackles enough to be an elite rb...got too much reggie bush in him...huge weapon and about time the bills figured out how to use him but top 5 rb in the league??? nah....

    byrd is a ballhawk but you have to hide him in your defense with some stuff...reshad jones is a better all around safety than byrd...byrd also doesn't fit every defense...
    hoops scoops 2012 season ..."in 2014 ryan tannehill etches his name in stone amongst the games elite qbs"..."ryan tannehill and andrew luck will carry the afc for the next decade plus the way peyton manning and tom brady have this last decade plus"

    If Reshad Jones plays like he did last year he can be considered elite at his position

    Cam Wake wouldnt agree.
