Zach Harrison is an intriguing fit for Buffalo Bills on defense
Zach Harrison may be the most likely OSU player for the Bills to target in 2023. He will not require a first round pick, or the Bills trading other assets in order to acquire him. Yet, he definitely fills a need for the Bills and could be a long-term piece as a defensive end for the Bills.
Adding Harrison as a rotational piece with Greg Rousseau and Von Miller could allow them to consistently create pressure on opposing quarterbacks, while also providing Miller the time to recover from His ACL injury, and rest as needed upon his return in 2023.
Harrison is still just 21 years old, so he is the type of young player the Bills like to add with the ability to continue to project future growth and improvement within the Bills system. He has all the physical tools the Bills look for. At 6’5” and 274 pounds, he has above average size for a DE, and with long arms, strength, and speed, he is one of the top Defensive Ends in this year’s draft class.
As a senior at OSU he had 17 tackles, 3 forced fumbles, 31 QB pressures and 5 sacks. While his statistics are not elite, his physical profile, age, and projectability make him an ideal target for the Bills in Round 2 or 3.
