Offensive Line

The first takeaway from the depth chart was along the offensive line, a starting line that included rookie Cody Ford as the starting right tackle. The second round pick has spent most of training camp with the starters however recently has seen time at right guard.

This shift is due in large part to the numerous injuries along the line but a move inside for Ford opens the door for Ty Nsekhe at right tackle. A case can be made that having both in the lineup gives the Bills the best starting five, along with Dion Dawkins, Quinton Spain and Mitch Morse.

Another surprise for this depth chart is that Russell Bodine, who has replaced Mitch Morse at center most of camp with the starters, was listed as third string behind Spencer Long. The fact that Bodine is third string, his roster spot may not be as secure as first thought.
