Buffalo Bills Draft Prospects: Offensive Line


The Buffalo Bills are entering their second week of the NFL league year, and if it turns out to be anything like the first week, then we are in for one hell of a 2nd week.  The Buffalo Bills are still waiting on a decision on Charles Clay, but all reports are stating that Miami is getting annoyed with waiting and have already considered Clay a Buffalo Bill.

The Buffalo Bills still need some help on the offensive line, especially inside at guard.  They brought in Ritchie Incognito but he alone will not be able to steady both sides of center.

There are limited options on the free agent market, especially when the guys that are on the team currently, are pretty much right in line with them.  The free agent market is pretty much over with as far as guards and O-Lineman go.  As far as a trade, there is still that possibility so keep that in mind.

The more likely option is Buffalo adding to their depth and possibly finding a starter in the 2nd round of this years draft.

There are a couple of guys out their that could provide a spark that they need to sure up the other guard positions.  Of the possible available players that will be dropping to the 50th place, the first 6 will be heading out in the first round; Brandon Sherff, Andrus Peat, T.J. Clemmings, D.J. Humphries, La’el Collins, Ereck Flowers, and Cameron Erving.

There are still some top regarded offensive lineman that are available out their in the draft, and there is also the possibility of moving LT Cordy Glenn to the inside and finding a rookie OT to take his spot.

With Glenn coming up on his contract to be negotiated this year, this could be a move that happens to lower his price, whether it be within the franchise tag, reclassifying him as a guard rather than a tackle, especially a left tackle, will save the Buffalo Bills, in not only a franchise tag but also in a possible re-signing contract.

This move will strengthen the Buffalo Bills interior line and also, allow them to go out and find the next best left guard.  There is also a possibility that Seantrel Henderson could move to the left side and bring in someone else for the right side tackle.  This would allow Cyrus Kouandjio a shot at the right tackle as well as another rookie within the draft.

This will not limit them to a specific position on the offensive line, but a general need at this point, if they are willing and the players are willing to move positions around for the betterment of the team.
