Offensive Line (9)

Dion Dawkins, Jon Feliciano, Mitch Morse, Cody Ford, Darryl Williams, Spencer Brown, Ike Boettger, Ryan Bates, Tommy Doyle

Cut: Jamil Douglas, Jack Anderson, Jordan Devey, Bobby Hart

The offensive line group only brings in two new faces from last season’s group and they are both rookie tackles. Third and fifth round picks Spencer Brown and Tommy Doyle have had nearly opposite preseasons. Brown started slow and has come on strong at the end of camp. While Doyle has struggled to adjust to the NFL pace but should make the team anyway because of his draft status and potential. Joining Brown and Doyle as backups are Ike Boettger and Ryan Bates who both held backup roles last year.

Bates gets the edge over Jamil Douglas for the last spot because of his ability to play multiple positions across the offensive line including center. Buffalo did not bring too many new faces into camp that had an opportunity to make the team but every player who is listed as cut could make the practice squad. Because the group that the Bills are cutting is not the strongest Brandon Beane could look for some different names to add to the roster either on the practice squad or an additional lineman.

The starting group is very similar to last season with Cody Ford at right guard and Jon Feliciano at left guard. This group may not be the best in the NFL but there are solid at both tackle positions and Feliciano and Ford are a good pair of guards to run behind. There is a slight concern with pass blocking up the middle but it is something Beane could address in the next offseason.
