Richard Gouraige might surprise and make the Buffalo Bills 2023 roster

The Bills' offensive line could still be in flux, at least in terms of those not current starters. Dion Dawkins' current backup, Tommy Doyle, only appeared in one game last year, and played 37 snaps. As a fifth-round pick by Buffalo in 2021, Doyle played 65 snaps and appeared in 11 games during his first year in the league.

Another backup, Ryan Van Demark, has never appeared in an NFL game. Beyond those two, there's Alec Anderson, a 23-year-old reserve who has been cut and signed multiple times by Buffalo, but never played any meaningful snaps in the regular season.

The only legitimate veteran backup the Bills have is 32-year-old David Quessenberry, and some Bills fans aren't exactly thrilled with the idea of ever seeing him take the field again.

That's why the door is wide open for another reserve tackle to make themselves known during training camp, and undrafted free agent rookie Richard Gouraige could definitely make his presence known if given the opportunity. Buffalo has to find a key reserve tackle beyond Quessenberry, and Gouraige has an opportunity to be that guy.
