The Buffalo Bills are on their bye week and these are players and games the front office could watch closely with the 2023 NFL Draft in mind
As the college season reaches its pinnacle, prospects are starting to make names for themselves. Some prospects came into this season with solid reputations looking just to prove what we already know.
While many are still looking to prove they have what it takes to play on Sunday.
As the Buffalo Bills season is moving positively, we can always look into the future for prospects that could potentially be a part of the team next year. Here is a look at three prospects to watch this week and a game of the week loaded with potential draft prospects.
Buffalo Bills 2023 NFL Draft: Prospects and games to watch in Week 8
Luke Musgrave, TE Oregon State
Oregon State @ Colorado 8 PM
Luke Musgrave is a well-rounded tight end with elite NFL size. Standing 6’6″ and 250lbs, Musgrave is the ideal option for the Buffalo Bills as a backup tight end for Dawson Knox. He has the size to be a potential mismatch and has outstanding speed. The quickness off the line of scrimmage is among the best in college football. Additionally, he fits the mold of a classic tight end but has the athleticism to be used as a more modern tight end who can play from the slot.
While Musgrave lacks proven success as a blocker, his size and athleticism allow for potential massive improvement at the next level.
Another positive about Musgrave is that he has proven production as an excellent special teams player and could play in all phases of special teams. This is ideal for the Buffalo Bills, who require their backups to be contributors on special teams. Musgrave is by no means a sexy pick, but he’s the type of football player who belongs on the field on Sundays and has a bunch of skillsets that will get him on the field.
The Buffalo Bills could be looking to strengthen the tight end position, and there is not a much better all-around option than Musgrave. He has the athleticism, positional versatility, and potential to be a solid player for several years.
