The Buffalo Bills second round pick hasn’t even played a snap in the NFL but he also has a good chance of having a long sustained career, hopefully with the Buffalo Bills. The reason that Epenesa finds himself on the list, similar to Harrison Phillips, is that he has a high floor based on what he brings to this team.
One of the things that Epenesa excels at is setting the edge against the run and is a big defensive end that will give offensive tackles trouble. He certainly does have some speed to get after the quarterback, with 26.5 sacks while in the Hawkeyes in three seasons, but does the little things that makes a defense successful.
There is a good chance, based on the player that A.J. Epenesa showed he is in college, that he should be able to earn a second contract with the Buffalo Bills.
