Buffalo's best and worst at the halfway point

By Connor J. Byrne on November 1, 2006

Defense:

MOP - Donte Whitner:

On a defense that's been among the worst in the NFL this season, Whitner, a rookie, has been the greatest bright spot. The strong safety, who was Buffalo's first-round pick last April, looks like he can legitimately be an All-Pro-caliber player for a long time in the pros.

On the surface, Whitner's statistics aren't overly impressive (45 tackles, one interception, two passes defensed), but the 21-year-old has proven to already be one of the biggest leaders on the defense, and he's terrific in both tackling and coverage. If the Bills' defense ever rebounds into an elite unit, expect the former Ohio State Buckeye to be its centerpiece.
