*All data within Sportradar’s weekly Disruptors series was compiled by utilizing our sports intelligence tool, radar360. The tool allows us to easily compile reports that combine traditional stats like sacks with subjective stats like knock downs and hurries to produce a total pressures metric. This metric allows us to provide analysis on which players and teams are the most disruptive each week.
