5 breakout candidates on the Buffalo Bills for the 2022 season
Last year was a promising year for Greg Rousseau, who started every game as a rookie after the Buffalo Bills drafted him in the first round of the 2021 NFL Draft. He would finish the season with 50 total tackles, four sacks, 10 QB hits, and four passes defended.
Entering his second season, the Buffalo Bills are hoping to see more from Rousseau and he is in a great position to break out with the addition of Von Miller this offseason. This signing should help him on the field and off the field and the team is already starting to see that second point during OTAs with Miller giving the former first round pick pointers.
During the season though, Miller’s presence should help open up more one-on-one opportunities for Rousseau. Opposing teams are going to have to give extra attention to Miller with tight ends on his side and running backs trying to chip him.
This should give Rousseau more chances to generate pressure on the opposing quarterbacks and build on that sack total from his rookie season.
