With their second pick of the first round, the Bills go offensive line. Fans will go nuts over this pick, as they take arguably the best offensive guard in the draft. Florida Gators guard O’Cyrus Torrence is a mean, nasty, strong player on the interior and will allow us all to forget about Rodger Saffold.
Last year, Torrence helped protect and block for one of this year’s most exciting quarterbacks in Anthony Richardson. He has experience working with and for a mobile quarterback, which is a huge positive when coming to a team featuring the likes of Josh Allen.
The Bills have to upgrade their offensive line this offseason, and for sure at the guard position. Torrence immediately improves this unit from the get-go.
Torrence stands 6-foot-5 and weighs in at 347 pounds. He is an absolute tank of a man. Despite his massive size, Torrence’s first step is very quick. He gets off the ball fast, and looks to punish opposing linemen until the whistle stops. He has a knack for finishing his man, and that’s something we rarely saw a year ago out of Saffold.
This is as good and underrated a pick as you could make if you’re Buffalo, here, and with that, the first round goes swimmingly for a team looking at a Super Bowl run next season.
