A yr after being named the league’s thirty fifth greatest participant, Fitzpatrick was ranked 52nd. Thus far, Broncos security Justin Simmons (forty fifth) is the one security slotted greater on the record than Fitzpatrick.

Safeties resembling Jamal Adams, Tyrann Mathieu, and Budda Baker might simply discover themselves amongst the league’s high 40 gamers.
A pacesetter on the Steeler protection, Fitzpatrick is coming off a season by which he was named to the Pro Bowl, tallied 79 tackles and snagged 4 picks. Despite his spectacular numbers, the Top 100 record marks the second-time this summer season the fourth-year professional’s (apparently) been slighted.
