Buffalo Bills 2023 NFL Draft Target: Steve Avila
While most of the players in this article have primarily been centers in college and could play guard, TCU’s Steve Avila has moved around during his time in college.
This past season, Avila started every game at left guard and was a consensus All-American but prior to that made 11 starts at center in 2021, and in 2020 made starts at three different positions with six at center, two at right tackle, and one at right guard.
Avila is one of the more athletic interior offensive linemen in this year’s class with a Relative Athletic Score of 8.46. While he doesn’t have the experience that John Michael Schmitz has at center, the versatility would actually probably be viewed as a positive for the Buffalo Bills.
Steve Avila would likely go in the second or third round and could compete right away at right guard while continuing to develop at center to be the eventual replacement for Mitch Morse.
