Kevin Byard is maybe the best safety in the NFL, and yet he doesn’t get any love from NFL.com in their All-Under 25 team. Jamal Adams is a very good player, but he gets some extra buzz for playing in New York. Derwin James is great too, but Byard has played at an All-Pro level for 2 years straight now.
SI.com puts some respect on Byard’s name, calling him the NFL’s best kept secret. As much as I think we like to play the underdog card, it is time for Byard to get some recognition.
Frank Herron Jr., the legend, is now a Titan. This is a huge get for the Titans, literally. Herron also played college ball at LSU, making him one of the best college players of all time, and I expect that greatness to translate to the pros.
