3 Buffalo Bills on defense to watch in preseason game against Lions
At the top of the list should be the Buffalo Bills first round pick, defensive end Greg Rousseau. While first round picks always have a certain level of excitement with them based on their draft status, Rousseau comes with a little more intrigue.
The reason is that the tape is fairly limited on the former University of Miami pass rusher. He played only one full season in college, after an injury cut his season short in 2018 and then he sat out this past season due to the pandemic.
That one season though was tremendous as he had 15.5 sacks and 19.5 tackles for a loss. At 6’6″ and 266 pounds, he is physically imposing and can see almost everyone in the NFL. Mario Addison after training camp practice earlier this month described the rookie as Godzilla.
This is going to be the first time Rousseau will get a chance to play in an NFL game and the first time in over a year that he got any live game snaps so it will be interesting to see how he does.
