Defensive End

The defensive line has been a point of emphasis in the NFL Draft, especially in the early rounds, under general manager Brandon Beane. From 2019 to 2022, the Bills have drafted at least one defensive lineman in the first two rounds of each draft every year.

It began with Ed Oliver in the first round of 2019, followed by A.J. Epenesa in the second round of 2020, and then Greg Rousseau and Boogie Basham in the first and second round of the 2021 NFL Draft. In addition to those draft picks, the Bills also signed Von Miller last offseason.

While there are questions about the position, especially after this season, the Buffalo Bills should not be looking to add any more defensive ends during the NFL Draft. The draft capital invested to this point has been too much and there are other positions that are more pressing.

The Buffalo Bills should look to still add talent to the position but it makes more sense to bring in veteran free agents than look to try and develop another draft pick, especially considering they are unlikely to see significant snaps this season behind the other players on the roster.
