Taking a look at the season ahead, BuffaLowDown goes through all of the rookies that the Buffalo Bills will see next season.
The Buffalo Bills had a solid draft this season, bringing in three potential starters and three players that will provide valuable depth. They weren’t the only team that drafted well and some of the teams that graded well are on the Bills’ 2017 schedule.
While the team prepares for workout and camps, which begin next week, it would be smart to prepare yourself for some of the rookies they will be playing against this season. I must say, it’s a talented group of rookies and some will even be contenders for rookie of the year (offensive and defensive).
Before we dive into the rookies, let’s get a quick look at the schedule ahead:
Week 1: vs. New York Jets
Week 2: @ Carolina Panthers
Week 3: vs. Denver Broncos
Week 4: @ Atlanta Falcons
Week 5: @ Cincinnati Bengals
Week 6: BYE WEEK
Week 7: vs. Tampa Bay Buccaneers
Week 8: vs. Oakland Raiders
Week 9: @ New York Jets
Week 10: vs. New Orleans Saints
Week 11: @ Los Angeles Chargers
Week 12: @ Kansas City Chiefs
Week 13: vs. New England Patriots
Week 14: vs. Indianapolis Colts
Week 15: vs. Miami Dolphins
Week 16: @ New England Patriots
Week 17: @ Miami Dolphins
Four of the Buffalo Bills‘ final five games will be against the AFC East — Miami and New England. A tough way to close out the season, but it will be that much sweeter if the Bills make it to the playoffs. Either way, those four games will be crucial to the whole division.
Let’s get to those rookies now. I’ll start with Week 1 and work my way up.
