Buffalo Bills Defensive Line (9)

Defensive End: Von Miller, Greg Rousseau, Boogie Basham, Shaq Lawson, A.J. Epenesa

Defensive Tackle: DaQuan Jones, Ed Oliver, Tim Settle, Jordan Phillips

General manager Brandon Beane and the front office put a lot of focus on the defensive line this offseason in free agency.

The big addition was Von Miller but they also signed Shaq Lawson, DaQuan Jones, Tim Settle, and Jordan Phillips. This group replaces players like Jerry Hughes, Mario Addison, Star Lotulelei, and Harrison Phillips who have been big parts of this line over the past few years.

The hope is that the Bills will get more pressure off the edge with Miller along with the development of Greg Rousseau and Boogie Basham while also improving against the run with Shaq Lawson at defensive end and DaQuan Jones and Tim Settle on the interior.

Even with a number of moves in free agency, this group also feels pretty well set and there shouldn’t be much movement.
