Buffalo Bills 2023 NFL Draft Target: Adetomiwa Adebawore

During his time at Northwestern Adetomiwa Adebawore moved around the defensive line but at 6’2″ and 282 pounds, Adebawore would be able to be primarily a three-technique defensive tackle for the Buffalo Bills.

In four seasons at Northwestern, Adebawore had 12.5 sacks and 24.5 tackles for a loss with a majority of those stats coming in the last two years. At the NFL Combine, he got to show off his athleticism and finished with the highest athleticism score among defensive tackles.

Unlike Calijah Kancey, Adetomiwa Adebawore would likely need some time to develop but this isn’t necessarily a concern for the Buffalo Bills. They have most of the players in place for this season at defensive tackle so the coaching staff can rotate Adebawore in to try and capitalize on that athleticism to make plays for the defense while he gets more comfortable inside at defensive tackle.
