Protecting Josh Allen is paramount to everything else on this Buffalo Bills team

I’ve long been a proponent of building the best offensive line possible.  If a trade up to select Wright means Josh Allen taking fewer hits and having time in the pocket to use his howitzer of a right arm, then by all means, make the move.

I like Spencer Brown, don’t get me wrong.  I have confidence that he’ll rebound in year three.  Between his back injury that basically sabotaged his off-season and pre-season plan, to the struggles of the offensive line as a whole, it’s understandable that he had a rough go of it in 2022.

All that said, having a solid offensive line is vital; therefore, a back plan to Brown is a must.  Let’s look no further than the Kansas City Chiefs for some proof of what a rock-solid line can do for you.  The Philadelphia Eagles came into the Super Bowl a season ago with 70 total sacks on the regular season, only two off the all-time record but could not register a single sack on Patrick Mahomes, not one, zero, zip, nada.

We can also look back to those early 90’s Bills teams to get an understanding of what it means to a team to have a top-notch offensive line.  Give me an elite quarterback, average skill position players and the best offensive line in the league and I’ll show you a top ten offense.  And the Bills skill position players are anything but average.
