Three Bills selected to PFF's All-Pro team

The staff at Pro Football Focus released its All-Pro team today, with three Buffalo Bills earning recognition.

Running back C.J. Spiller was a second-team selection, as was special teams returner Leodis McKelvin, while safety Jairus Byrd was a first-team pick at his position.

Regarding Spiller, the PFF analysts wrote, "In the end, Spiller received the nod over Marshawn Lynch and Alfred Morris [as a second teamer] with the only negative being in how poorly he was used."

Byrd earned high marks for his coverage ability. "There isn't a better deep safety in football than Byrd who picked up five interceptions and only allowed 16 catches all year into his coverage. Byrd has rare range and ability and it’s always on display."

McKelvin, who had two punt return touchdowns this season before missing the final two games because of a groin injury, led the NFL in punt return average. "While he was just picked over Marcus Thigpen here, before missing time, McKelvin had a very real shot at first team honors."

PFF's complete All-Pro rosters are available here.
