Buffalo Bills: 5 players who could emerge as major contributors
Vosean Joseph was a fifth round pick by the Buffalo Bills in last year’s NFL Draft but didn’t take a regular season snap due to a shoulder injury during preseason that landed him on injured reserve.
Now that he is recovered, he has a great opportunity to not only contribute but earn a starting job on this defense. The retirement of Lorenzo Alexander creates a hole at weakside linebacker and he will be competing with A.J. Klein.
While the veteran would seem to have the edge, Joseph is an athletic linebacker that can get sideline to sideline in a similar style to Matt Milano and Tremaine Edmunds. When the Bills have all three on the field at one time, there may not be another linebacker group in the NFL that can match the speed this group possesses.
Buffalo Bills fans should expect to see a lot of Vosean Joseph this coming season.
