O’Cyrus Torrence is mocked to the Buffalo Bills more often than not this is probably the most consistent player that is being mocked to the Buffalo Bills, as far as offensive linemen go.
I like Torrence a great deal. He doesn’t have the speed or quickness of Broderick Jones but he’s bigger, at 6’5″ and 337 pounds, he’d make a great option inside at right or left guard.
Torrence has played a total of 3,065 snaps at the collegiate level as a four-year starter and has never given up a sack, not one! His first three years in college were spent playing for the Louisiana Rajin’ Cajuns. He transferred to Florida his senior year and continued to be a dominant interior offensive lineman.
Torrence has played almost exclusively at right guard, which would be perfect for the Bills because current right guard Ryan Bates could move back to left guard, where he was far better two seasons ago, than at right guard last season.
There are those that think Torrence could play at the tackle position as well but didn’t play much at all at the position throughout his collegiate career. If a move to tackle is something the Bills want to do, there is a belief he can succeed there but what does that learning curve look like?
I’d love to see the Bills take Torrence with their first-round selection but again, this is one they may have to move up a few spots to get, as he seems to be climbing draft boards as we near the combine and the draft next month.
