Yetur Gross-Matos

One player who was likely expecting to go in the first round was Penn State’s defensive end Yetur Gross-Matos. He checks all the boxes for what the Buffalo Bills need at defensive end.

He has great size for the position at 6’5″ and 266 pounds and was a key contributor for the Nittany Lions defense the past two seasons with 17.5 sacks and 34.5 tackles for a loss.

While the Bills have a logjam at the top of their depth chart with veterans like Jerry Hughes, Mario Addison and Trent Murphy, it wouldn’t be surprising to see Gross-Matos contribute right away as a rookie. The Bills desperately need some youth at the position and a player that can take over in the coming years for these veterans.

It is interesting to note that Yetur Gross-Matos NFL comparison by Lance Zierlein at NFL.com is a player who ranks second in franchise history in sacks, Aaron Schobel. The former Buffalo Bill was also a second round pick by the Bills in 2001. Could history repeat itself?
