Interior Offensive Line (5)

Mitch Morse, O'Cyrus Torrence, Connor McGovern, Ryan Bates, David Edwards

Mitch Morse is set for his fifth season in Buffalo, coming off a Pro Bowl year. He remains one of the better centers in the league and is an anchor for the Bills O-line. Connor McGovern, the big addition guard in free agency got banged up in practice last week and didn’t play against the Bears. The Bills hope he will be ready to go in week one, but he is the starting left guard.

Rookie second-rounder, O’Cyrus Torrence, beat out Ryan Bates and is your starting right guard. The argument could be made that he was the best offensive lineman in the preseason. Despite losing the battle to Torrence, Bates is still a good player and valuable to the Bills. He is a great backup who can play center and guard. Edwards is a top-depth guard option with a lot of experience. The Bills' interior O-line is deep this season.

Offensive Tackle (4)

Dion Dawkins, Spencer Brown, David Quessenberry, Ryan Van Demark

The Bills' offensive tackle depth took a massive hit over the last two weeks. They lost Tommy Doyle, who was making a comeback from an ACL tear last season. He tore his other ACL against the Steelers. They also lost Brandon Shell, who had tons of veteran experience; he decided to hang up the cleats. Demark had a solid preseason and should be the team’s fourth tackle. The Bills could make a trade to add some more depth this week.

Dion Dawkins is coming off back-to-back Pro Bowl seasons and should once again be solid protecting Josh Allen’s blindside. Spencer Brown will be entering his third season and the Bills desperately need the monster of a man to have a good year. Brown is nasty in the run game but struggles against the pass more times than not. If Brown improves there this season, the Bills have the potential to have one of the better lines in the league.
