Trio of Colts ranked in PFF’s top 101 players from 2022

Three Indianapolis Colts players were ranked inside Pro Football Focus’ list of the top 101 players from the 2022 season.

Considering the season the Colts are coming off of, it’s not a surprise that they only had three players make the list. None of the players for the Colts were listed in the top 50.

Here are the three Colts players ranked inside the top 101, included with what PFF said:


One of the few players with significant positives to take away from an ugly Colts season, Buckner posted an 82.3 overall PFF grade and recorded 56 pressures and 47 defensive stops.


Gilmore had a quiet resurgence this past season with the Colts, but it was largely overlooked because of how bad the team was overall. He finished with an 81.1 PFF coverage grade and eight pass breakups to go along with two interceptions.


McLeod had an excellent 2022 season for the Colts and was particularly good in the second half of the year. From Week 8 onward, he earned the second-best overall PFF grade among all safeties.

Buckner was one of the most impactful and consistent players for the Colts this season. He continued to play at a high level despite battling through some nagging injuries.

Gilmore was a strong addition to the secondary, giving the Colts a true CB1 option on the boundary while McLeod had arguably his best season as a pro.

The omission of left guard Quenton Nelson seems obvious at first, but he did allow a career-high five sacks and 31 total pressures. It’s no surprise that an offensive player wasn’t included on the list to represent the Colts.

With new head coach Shane Steichen joining the organization, there is hope he can turn things around relatively quickly, especially along the offensive line, leading to more Colts being represented in 2023.
