The Buffalo Bills are coming off one of their best offensive seasons in close to 20 years during a year with Drew Bledsoe under center with Eric Moulds and Peerless Price on the outside as his receivers. This time around it was Josh Allen commanding the offense with players like Stefon Diggs and Cole Beasley as his primary pass catchers.

Even with how well the offense played, there is room for improvement and there is no better way than to have position battles during training camp that will allow the coaching staff to find not only their best starting lineup but the players to keep that will strengthen the depth.

These are four position battles that have emerged already at this point of the offseason to watch for heading into training camp.

Quarterback

Jake Fromm vs. Davis Webb

This is a position battle that may not even happen if the Buffalo Bills keep only two quarterbacks on the active roster. This was something they did in 2019 with Josh Allen and Matt Barkley but this past season they kept three with Jake Fromm serving as an emergency quarterback if there was an outbreak at the position.

If the Bills elect to keep three quarterbacks this year, then the battle will come down to Jake Fromm, who the Bills selected in the fifth round of the 2020 NFL Draft, and Davis Webb, who is entering his third season with the team.

At this point, the edge would probably go to Webb who was a third round pick by the New York Giants and has proven to be valuable to the team with the little things he does which Matt Parrino details in this article. However, it will be interesting to see how Jake Fromm does in preseason games as fans haven’t had a chance to see him in an NFL game yet in his career.
