Another player who opted out and decided to prepare for the 2021 NFL Draft was Penn State linebacker Micah Parsons. While the Buffalo Bills have their starters set with Tremaine Edmunds and Matt Milano, there is a scenario where linebacker could become a need.
If Matt Milano leaves after this season as a free agent and players like Vosean Joseph or Corey Thompson don’t develop into a starter, the linebacker position becomes very thin. A player like Parsons would be an impact player for this Bills defense.
The trouble is that Parsons is viewed as a high first round draft pick so the Buffalo Bills would, hopefully, have to trade up to get him. However, he is the type of prospect that would warrant a move like that.
He is a well-rounded linebacker that does almost everything well with 191 total tackles over two seasons, to go along with 6.5 sacks, six forced fumbles and five passes defended. If the Buffalo Bills are not able to reach an agreement with Matt Milano, the former Penn State linebacker would be a great fit in this defense.
