Maryland football alum Stefon Diggs was voted No. 54 by his fellow players in the annual NFL Top 100 Players countdown.
The new Buffalo Bill was the 10th receiver to be named a top-100 player, placing above the likes of Odell Beckham Jr, Davante Adams, Jarvis Landry, Keenan Allen and Tyler Lockett.
It’s also Diggs’ highest ranking as a pro and his third straight season in the Top 100, improving on his No. 73 ranking from a year ago.
Diggs put together one of his strongest seasons statistically in 2019, setting career-highs in receiving yards (1130) and yards per reception (17.9). With next season being his first in a Bills uniform, Diggs will look to continue to perform at a high level with new quarterback Josh Allen.
