The Buffalo Bills have some concerns up front along the offensive line that need to be addressed. They could address this need via free agency; however, are there some incoming rookie offensive linemen they should be paying attention to during the 2023 NFL Combine throughout this week?
The answer is yes. Even if the Bills elect to bring in an offensive lineman or two on free agency deals, no question that drafting a couple in the coming NFL draft is not a bad idea. The Bills’ offensive line ranked in the bottom half of the NFL per PFF. Bringing four or five new linemen in via free agency and the draft should help the Bills to revamp the line.
We’ve seen both the Kansas City Chiefs and Cincinnati Bengals do something similar over the last couple of seasons, recognizing they had a problem with their line, they did what needed to be done to resolve the issue.
The Bills’ offense finished number two in terms of yards a season ago and did so with a below-average offensive line. I know there are a lot of fans who believe the Bills need a star running back, insert Saquon Barkley or Derrick Henry. Some will say the Bills need another wide receiver weapon, insert Keenan Allen or Mike Evans. Maybe draft a Bijan Robinson or Jordan Addison or Jalin Hyatt.
You find any of that sort of talk here. Nope, I’m all about the offensive line. Take the line from below average to above average and see what Josh Allen and the existing skill positions players can do!
So, with that, let’s take a look at five offensive linemen the Buffalo Bills should monitor at the 2023 NFL Combine.
