Buffalo Bills: Rookies making good first impression to start training camp
This is a recap of how some of the rookies have performed so far in training camp for the Buffalo Bills.
The Buffalo Bills didn’t have a first round pick this year but still came away with a group of players that looked to have a great deal of potential. The grades from the experts were fairly high ranging from A to B- in this article on the team’s website.
The team addressed a few key needs early with defensive end A.J. Epenesa in the second round and running back Zack Moss in the third round. The Day 3 picks seemed to be more focused on value and competition with players like Gabriel Davis, Jake Fromm, Isaiah Hodgins, Tyler Bass and Dane Jackson.
While these players have potential, it seemed like they would have a tough path to playing time. The Buffalo Bills were near the top of the league in returning players and they didn’t have many major areas of concern. The learning curve can also be tough for rookies going from college to the NFL and with no OTAs and no preseason games, that could make the transition that much tougher.
However, some of these rookies have made an impact during the first week of padded practices and some may even be in position to earn starting jobs at the start of the season. Based on media reports, here is an update on some of the rookies so far in training camp.
