Can the Bills' pass rush be dominant?

We’ve been hearing all the reports out of training camp about how dominant the Bills’ have been in getting to their quarterback, oftentimes forcing the QBs to throw off their back foot or disrupting their timing.  Also, it’s been impressive how strong of a camp this unit has had without their best edge rusher in Von Miller.

The only concern I have here is whether their camp dominance is more about their skill and the attacking style that McDermott is utilizing or if the Bills’ offensive line is going to be an issue this season.  But I’ll get to the offensive line later.

For now, I’ll be watching to see if these guys get after the Colts and this will be a great test too, given Anthony Richardson will no doubt be on the field.  Can the Bills pass rush get to him and keep him contained at the same time?  Even though he’s a rookie, he’ll be able to use his legs, even if his passing is suspect.

I think we know what we are getting with the likes of Leonard Floyd, DaQuan Jones, and Tim Settle.  But I want to see A.J. Epenesa, Boogie Basham, Poona Ford, and Ed Oliver make some plays too.
