Only One Buffalo Bills Player Named a First Team All-Pro
The Buffalo Bills have arguably the best roster in the NFL. Most neutral fans would probably agree the Bills have the better roster over the Kansas City Chiefs. They certainly have more depth.
The only two rosters that rival the Bills are the Philadelphia Eagles and the San Francisco 49ers, who are the leading candidates to make the Super Bowl in the NFC.
Despite that, there are Bills players who don't get enough credit. We know about Josh Allen and Stefon Diggs, but there are still some players the rest of the country doesn't get are great players.
Maybe the most underrated player in the NFL just got the respect he deserves, even if he wasn't named to the Pro Bowl.
Bills linebacker Matt Milano has been named a first team all-pro by the AP. He was the only player on the Bills who was named a first team all-pro, despite not being selected to the Pro Bowl...
Only three linebackers were named all-pros, with the Baltimore Ravens Roquan Smith and 49ers Fred Warner being the other two.
As for second team all-pros, Stefon Diggs was named a second team all-pro.
The all-pro selections are more prestigious, because it's across the entire NFL, vs. just the AFC or NFC. It's also less room for selections.
Milano isn't a loud and outgoing person, compared to other players on the field, but he is a quiet leader who makes all the difference in the world for the Bills and their defense. They are a different team without him in the lineup, and past games since 2019 which didn't have him on the field, prove that.
