Buffalo Bills: 4 Players they can’t risk putting on their practice squad
By Daniel Bruce
Vosean Joseph, Linebacker
Buffalo’s fifth round selection in the 2019 NFL Draft out of Florida missed all of last season due to a shoulder injury suffered in preseason. Joseph has great physical talent which would fit ideally as a weakside backup to Matt Milano.
Joe Marino of the Draft Network described Joseph as an ideal fit to play weak side which would be an improvement over Maurice Alexander who occupied the role last season.
"Vosean Joseph’s blend of lateral mobility, underwhelming instincts, issues playing through contact and speed make him an ideal fit to function as a weakside linebacker in a 4-3 alignment."
Despite not playing all of the 2019 season, the former Florida Gator had an opportunity to learn from his teammates about being a pro, and learning the ins and outs of the Bills defense. With a great linebacker room of veteran captain Lorenzo Alexander and also Tremaine Edmunds who was a captain during last season as well. Learning from those great football players had to help Joseph especially on the mental side of the game.
Joseph will be competing with the likes of Tyrel Dodson and Corey Thompson for a spot on the roster, two of the three will probably make the original 53-man roster, which leaves the young linebacker having a good chance of sticking around. Buffalo shouldn’t risk losing a versatile, talented linebacker like Joseph by assigning him to the practice squad.
