Buffalo Bills: Predicting which players will still be with franchise in five years
While Harrison Phillips isn’t necessarily considered one of the top players on the Buffalo Bills, he is the type of steady contributor that good teams have. When he was drafted, he drew comparisons to Kyle Williams, who spent 12 years with the Bills, and it wouldn’t be surprising if Phillips had a long run with the team.
Phillips was a third round pick by the Buffalo Bills in the 2017 NFL Draft and was primarily a backup at defensive tackle behind Williams. This past season though Harrison Phillips got a chance to have an expanded role in this defense and had a strong start to the year.
He was playing roughly 40% of the defensive snaps and had a career game in Week 2 against the New York Giants with three total tackles and 0.5 sacks. However, his season ended the next week with a torn ACL against the Cincinnati Bengals.
Harrison Phillips isn’t a flashy player, or one who will draw headlines, but he is a steady player that can be a solid option in the middle of this defensive line for years to come.
