Buffalo Bills: Grading the interior OL on the roster prior to 2021 NFL Draft

The Buffalo Bills are expected to enter the 2021 season with very little change as the team was able to re-sign Jon Feliciano to a three-year deal. They should also have third-year player Cody Ford back after he suffered a season-ending injury and Mitch Morse is entering his third year with the Bills as their starting center. This is how the interior offensive line grades entering the 2021 NFL Draft.

Interior Offensive Linemen on the Buffalo Bills Roster

  • Mitch Morse
  • Jon Feliciano
  • Cody Ford
  • Forrest Lamp
  • Jordan Devey
  • Jamil Douglas

Position Grade: B-

The biggest concern right now is depth, in particular at center behind Mitch Morse. The team could use Feliciano if the need were to arise but then this would create a hole at the right guard. The Bills do still have one that seems likely to happen but hasn’t been official yet and that is the return of Ike Boettger.

The Bills did use a right of first refusal tender that made him a restricted free agent. However, he hasn’t signed back with the team yet and that is why he is currently not included in the players on the roster. He played well last year down the stretch for the team after Cody Ford suffered his injury and could be a great depth piece for this team.

Another player to watch that can really change this group is Forrest Lamp, a former second-round pick who signed as a free agent this offseason. He entered the NFL with high expectations but dealt with a number of injuries to start.

This past season though he did play all 16 games and could potentially compete with Cody Ford for one of the starting guard positions. This is a group that has a number of moving parts and with that uncertainty, it wouldn’t be surprising to see them add a player in the NFL Draft, particularly one with center experience.
