After going through an up and down rookie season, Cody Ford is looking to gain some consistency and pass journeyman tackle Ty Nsekhe.

The second year Buffalo Bills tackle will be looking to improve on some of the struggles he endured during his rookie season, and try to solidify himself as the starting right tackle. In the 2019 NFL Draft the Buffalo Bills were a huge fan of the Oklahoma tackle when they traded up to 38 to select him. Cody Ford will try to show the potential the Bills saw in him next season.

There were some games where Ford looked like a starting tackle, while in others he was a turnstile. Buffalo has a solid option in Ty Nsekhe who when not injured was much better than Ford.

Despite Nsekhe proving to be reliable, he is 34 years of age and only appeared in 10 games last season due to nagging injuries. Ford will have every opportunity to claim the starting job in 2020 and the Buffalo Bills have held firm on being confident with the second year player at tackle and not moving to guard.
