The Buffalo Bills select interior defensive lineman, Jaquelin Roy

Jaquelin Roy provides the Bills with some depth, as well as a possible starting defensive tackle starting with the 2024 season.  As of now, the Bills have exactly zero interior defensive linemen under contract following the 2023 season.  The Bills need to add some talent to this room, as they cannot go into the off-season following this coming year, with no options.

PFF has him projected as a third-round talent and with the 130th pick, we’re looking about late third to early fourth, the perfect spot for the Bills to grab this potential future starter.

He has some limitations, such as being consistent with anchoring, which can sometimes result in losing ground to powerful blockers but like most things, can be developed in this area to be better.

He’s also only a one-year starter at LSU but was productive in that one year, producing 38 tackles, with 25 stops.  He also added 26 quarterback pressures, including 19 hurries and two sacks.

Roy could be part of a defensive line rotation, which we all know the Bills love to do.  He could be a limited part of that rotation while learning the nuances of the position from Jordan Phillips and DaQuan Jones.
