Staying on the defensive line, the Buffalo Bills may also be looking closely at defensive tackle during the 2023 NFL Draft. The Bills don’t have any player signed to a contract past the 2023 season and could see players like Ed Oliver and DaQuan Jones leave in free agency.

One player that the Buffalo Bills could consider is defensive tackle Bryan Bresee out of Clemson. He is a player that can collapse the pocket from defensive tackle and in three seasons had 9.0 sacks and 15 tackles for a loss in 25 games.

The Buffalo Bills would likely expect Bresee to step into the role currently occupied by Ed Oliver and the expectation would be for him to provide a pass rush up the middle and make plays in the backfield.

However, the reason the Bills should avoid drafting Bryan Bresee is durability concerns. The former Clemson defensive tackle suffered a torn ACL in 2021 and also had shoulder surgery before returning to the field last season.

Bryan Bresee is expected to be a first round pick and the Buffalo Bills likely can find similar production later in the NFL Draft and the front office should avoid selecting Bresee.
