The Buffalo Bills have significant questions at defensive tackle after this season with no players under contract past the 2023 season. While it isn’t a pressing need currently, it could become a concern, and rebuilding the entire position in one offseason could be tough.

That is why Gervon Dexter out of the University of Florida would be a great pick here in the third round for this defense. In three seasons with the Gators, Dexter had 125 total tackles, 5.5 sacks and 10.5 tackles for a loss.

The scouting report on The Draft Network describes a player with high upside due to his athleticism. He has the ability to create penetration from the interior of the defensive line, similar to Ed Oliver.

"Dexter’s 6-foot-6, 300-pound frame combined with his athletic upside gives him a natural physical advantage that helps him dominate offensive linemen when he is put in position to attack upfield and get penetration."

At a minimum Gervon Dexter would be a key part of the rotation for the Buffalo Bills and relied upon to play 30% of the snaps but with a year of development could be a starter for this defense.
