ProFootballFocus Top/Bottom at every position, as of Week 4 2023

A disclaimer: I do not own a PFF subscription but my friend does and sent me this list to post it. PFF is obviously flawed, and in some cases downright laughable, I do not necessarily share their opinions on the top/worst players. Still, I do think at the very least players graded highly are playing at a relatively high level, and those graded poorly are not (even if the exact order is questionable). Keep in mind their new player grade scale lists players via a 1-100 format and that players of most positions that do not have a certain Snap % are not included (I think its like 25%).

Yeah, Jedrick Wills is officially a bust.

As I've said in the Browns forum, the past couple years I thought he was disappointing for a top 10 pick, but still pretty much an average LT. This year should have been a big year for him and he's looked even worse. Not the worst LT I've seen by any means, but bad. He's gotta be one of the laziest tackles I've ever seen - dude gives up on plays so quickly and easily.


It's not easy to find a competent LT, but I hope we move on from Wills after his contract is up.

Bears with 3 guys in the bottom EDGE is legit.

Patrick has been horrible

Blasingame has been used as a slot WR in Getsy's "innovative" scheme so that likely dropped is grade a lot. As a blocker I don't remember him blowing the blocks in a meaningful way but I could just be missing it. 

Herbert has been good but the offensive genius has underutilized him until this week. 

Surprised Claypool isn't listed a a bottom 5. Dude was checked out before  TC.

Especially hurts when you could have had Wirfs who has proven to be an elite talent at both tackle spots. Ouch.
