Vosean Joseph was the Buffalo Bills fifth round pick last year but suffered a shoulder injury in the final preseason game. He was placed on injured reserve and saw his rookie season end before it really got started.
However, a season watching from the sidelines could end up being very beneficial. He currently would seem to be the favorite to start at outside linebacker in place of the retired Lorenzo Alexander, alongside Tremaine Edmunds and Matt Milano.
While there is still time for the Buffalo Bills to add players, either through free agency or the NFL Draft, Joseph has had a year to study this defensive scheme. This plus the fact that he is an athletic linebacker that can utilize his speed going sideline to sideline chasing the ball carrier or on blitzes getting after the quarterback could put him in line for a breakout year next season.
