Buffalo Bills 5 strongest positions heading into 2019
By Avery Duncan
The 2019 Buffalo Bills have some serious talent on the roster, but some positions stand out over others.
The Buffalo Bills, led by general manager Brandon Beane, had one of the busiest — in turn, effective — off-seasons of any team in the NFL. By surrounding his quarterback Josh Allen with offensive talent, and retooling an already good defense, the Bills look the part of a playoff contender.
Rather than targeting an expensive superstar, Beane opted to take the safe, team-building route in free agency. The additions of Mitch Morse, Quinton Spain, Ty Nsekhe, La’Adrian Waddle, and Spencer Long should get the offensive line back up to par. While pass catchers John Brown, Tyler Kroft, and Cole Beasley will make the offense easier to watch.
Then in the draft, Beane went searching for his future superstars. Defensive tackle Ed Oliver is the most sure-thing to make that happen. Tight end Dawson Knox and running back Devin Singletary could follow suit. Second-round pick Cody Ford may be the final piece of the puzzle of the Bills’ 2019 offensive line.
With spring practice now done (rookie minicamp, organized team activities, mandatory minicamp), the roster is starting to take place. Unlike last year’s depth chart, there aren’t many gaping holes on the squad. The Bills either have a plan at a position (i.e., quarterback – Josh Allen) or a strength.
