Since then, he became a two-time Second-Team All-Pro, one in 2017 and the other in 2021.
In the first instance, he had career highs of 65 solo tackles, 13 passes defended, and five interceptions.
Last season, the former Iowa standout played all 17 games and was a vital cog in the Bills’ defense that was ranked number one in the league.
Individually, he had 53 tackles, ten passes defended, five interceptions, and one sack.
He also had the first interception return for a touchdown in his nine-year NFL career.
But while Hyde was selected as an All-Pro last year, the NFL on CBS poses an intriguing question.
How is Micah Hyde only a 1x Pro Bowler!?! @BuffaloBills

It’s interesting to note that Hyde has only been a Pro Bowler once even if he has remained consistent throughout his tenure in Buffalo.
Perhaps explaining the nature of both individual distinctions can provide an answer to that mystery.
Football fans predominantly determine Pro Bowl rosters based on their votes.
Therefore, the more popular ones have an edge in making it.
Hyde Got Enough All-Pro Votes To Qualify
On the hand, the All-Pro is often reserved for the best of the best NFL players.
A pool of writers vote on the rightful players and they often get two free safeties per team.
However, Hyde and Budda Baker were tied, keeping him off the first team.
Still, Hyde has a few more years to add to his All-Pro or Pro Bowl collection.
