Buffalo Bills: 5 Brandon Beane draft picks who are on the roster bubble
These are five players who were draft picks by Brandon Beane that could be cut before the season.
Since Brandon Beane was named general manager by the Buffalo Bills shortly after the 2017 NFL Draft, he has built one of the best, and deepest, rosters in the league. This is undoubtedly one of the most talented teams in franchise history.
However, when teams are this deep it also means they are forced to make tough decisions when they need to cut the roster down to the league-mandated 53 players before the start of the regular season.
Usually, when teams begin to look at their roster, draft picks have a slight advantage over free agent additions or undrafted free agents. The biggest reason is that teams have invested a draft pick in this player and want to maximize their return on that investment. It also is expected that for some players it is going to take a few seasons for them to reach their potential.
This season though the Buffalo Bills have their sights set on a Super Bowl and the focus may be more on keeping players who can contribute this season. With that in mind, there are seven players who were former draft picks by Brandon Beane who could be on the roster bubble entering preseason games next week.
