Players the Buffalo Bills should trade up for in Round 2 of the 2023 NFL Draft: Keion White, EDGE, Georgia Tech

One of the other needs within this defense is finding another edge rusher. The Bills will be without Von Miller, of course, for a little while as he recovers from his ACL injury, still. After the New York Jets traded for Aaron Rodgers, it seemed even more apparent that the Bills had to address their pass rush.

Buffalo has to put emphasis on this position, especially with the amount of elite quarterbacks they’re up against within the AFC now. Georgia Tech’s Keion White would be an excellent trade-up candidate, as some even had him mocked in the first round.

White stands 6-foot-5, weighing 285 pounds and is one of the more impressive blends of size, speed and athleticism at the position in this year’s class.

One of the things Bills fans would appreciate about this guy is his motor. He plays with a sense of urgency, fighting through all types of blocks and techniques from opposing offensive linemen. He also has elite short-area quickness, giving him an uncanny ability to stop run plays before they’re able to develop further.

White would come in and start opposite Gregory Rousseau from Day 1, and give this defense a totally different element that’s been missing.
