The Buffalo Bills drafted a gem of a guard in O'Cyrus Torrence

A lot of fans like to get on Brandon Beane for what they believe, has been poor drafting. I'm not one of those and I'll be diving more into Beane's draft history but for now, fans can't say too much about O'Cyrus Torrence being a bad pick. Beane hit a home run with this young man, and he will become a Pro Bowl offensive guard in the NFL.

Torrence did finally give up his first sack of the year last week against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers but on the season he's allowed only one quarterback hit and 14 pressures in eight games. The one area he will need to clean up a bit is with penalties. He's committed four penalties this season, which is the eighth most in the NFL; however, according to Pro Football Focus, he's played more snaps than anyone with 534.
