Atlanta’s Roddy White still leads the NFL in dropped passes, but he’s starting to lose his grip on that distinction.
White did not drop a pass in Sunday’s win against Carolina. He’s dropped seven passes this season, but he’s starting to get some company. Cleveland running back Montario Hardesty is No. 2 with six dropped passes. Hardesty has been targeted only 16 times, while White has been targeted 70 times, according to ESPN Stats & Information.
Indianapolis tight end Dallas Clark is third with five drops and there’s another NFC South receiver in the top five. That’s Tampa Bay’s Mike Williams (four drops) who is tied with several players for No. 4.
The Bucs are tied for No. 3 in the league in team drops with 12. The Falcons are tied for No. 10 with 10 drops. The Saints are tied for No. 14 with eight drops and the Panthers are tied for No. 23 with five drops.
Atlanta’s Julio Jones and Harry Douglas, New Orleans’ Lance Moore and Devery Henderson, Carolina’s Brandon LaFell and Tampa Bay’s Dezmon Briscoe are among a group of receivers with at least 10 receptions that have yet to drop a pass.
