The Buffalo Bills have begun the next phase of their offseason with organized team activites (OTAs) beginning this week. The 10 practices are spread over three weeks and lead into the mandatory minicamp next month.

It is important to keep in context what OTAs are, which is just the beginning stages of preparation for the upcoming season. During this time, there are no pads, and hitting is restricted, but for some players who are trying to earn bigger roles or even a roster spot, they need to take advantage of every practice.

With that in mind, these are four players on the Buffalo Bills who are already making an impact during OTAs.

Josh Allen

It might be surprising to see Josh Allen's name on this list as he already is one of the best players in the NFL and often in the discussion for MVP each season. However, the starting quarterback is finding himself in a unique situation this coming season.

The Bills made significant changes this offseason as the offense not only has an almost entirely new wide receiver group but also a new starting center. This week, Allen talked about the relationship he is trying to build with McGovern, according to Thad Brown:

"“We’re two of the first guys here and we’re sitting in the training room, getting stretched out, hanging out right by each other for a good 45 minutes to an hour,” said Allen. “I think that’s part of it, you just understand each other off the field, developing a constant line of communication.”"

There probably wasn't any question who the leader of the offense was but with the departure of veterans like Mitch Morse and Stefon Diggs, this is clearly Josh Allen's team and he is trying everything to make sure he is building those relationships early and quickly.
