3 Bills Defensive Linemen Named to Pro Bowl

The Buffalo Bills have one of the best defensive lines in football. Three of the team's four starting defensive linemen were named to the Pro Bowl on Tuesday.

Three Buffalo Bills defensive linemen are Pro Bowl bound. Mario Williams, Kyle Williams and Marcell Dareus were all named to the 2015 Pro Bowl this evening.

This will be Mario Williams' fourth Pro Bowl appearance. He previously played in the Pro Bowl in 2008, 2009 and 2013. The defensive end has 13.5 sacks this season, along with 36 quarterback hurries and seven quarterback hits. Mario Williams has been worth every penny since he's joined the Bills.

Kyle Williams will be playing in his third consecutive Pro Bowl and fourth overall. The defensive tackle is without a doubt the heart and soul of Buffalo's defense. The veteran has 40 total tackles, 5.5 sacks, 28 quarterback hurries, 12 quarterback hits and one interception. Among all defensive tackles, only Gerald McCoy of the Buccaneers (+36.2) has a higher pass rush grade than Kyle Williams (+19.9).

Last, Marcell Dareus will be making his second consecutive Pro Bowl appearance. He was an alternate last season. Dareus has been Buffalo's defensive MVP this season and has been unblockable at times. He has 48 total tackles, 10 sacks and 19 quarterback hurries. Among all defensive tackles, Dareus is ranked fourth at Pro Football Focus. On an absolutely dominant defensive line, there's no question that Dareus is its most dominant player.

The Pro Bowl will take place in Arizona on January 25, 2015.
