    Good: J’Dan Burnett, EDGE

    He’s missed two games but still flown around the field from the edge with reckless abandon. Making major waves with his pass-rushing ability, J’Dan Burnett’s quick pressures caught opponents off-guard to start the season.

    Great: Smoke Harris, WR

    Some things never change and Smoke Harris catching balls over the middle from the slot is one of them. A dominant after-the-catch receiver, Harris averages 10.6 yards per catch through five games but the majority of that has been done after hauling in a reception.

    Grand: Willie Roberts, CB

    Locking down on the outside, Willie Roberts has been a missile to the football in coverage. He leads the team with four pass breakups and an interception, but that hardly tells the story of QBs starting to avoid targeting him altogether.

    Wonderful: Myles Heard, S

    What can’t this guy do? Myles Heard leads the team with 50 total tackles, coming downhill incredibly well from his safety position. He’s been a thorn in the side of each opponent this year.
