53-man roster predictions for Buffalo Bills before training camp

The Buffalo Bills are going to have some tough decisions when it comes time to cut the roster down to 53 players.

Buffalo Bills
4 of 9

Offensive Tackle (4)

Dion Dawkins, Spencer Brown, Brandon Shell, Tommy Doyle

Dion Dawkins will be entering his seventh season in Buffalo and remains one of the better, left tackles in football. He is coming off back-to-back Pro Bowl seasons. Spencer Brown will enter his third year and will be coming off his first fully healthy off-season. The Bills are hoping he’s much improved in pass protection, and it would greatly improve Josh Allen’s offensive line

Brandon Shell has tons of experience, having started at least 10 games in the last six seasons. He’s a great depth piece and insurance policy for Brown. Doyle tore his ACL in September last season and missed the rest of the year. Assuming he’s ready to roll, it’s a prove-it year for Doyle, entering his third season. The Bills have very limited roster spots and he needs to show he’s ready to be the number four tackle.

Interior Offensive line (5)

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

Mitch Morse remains a top center in the league and is ready to roll to open the season, which is great news for the Bills. The Bills interior offensive line struggled last year and the additions of McGovern and Torrence, who should both be starters in week one, will greatly help.

Ryan Bates will be an excellent depth piece who can play every position, although he’s likely to be Morse’s backup. David Edwards brings great experience and familiarity with offensive line coach, Aaron Kromer. The Bills bring are bringing an extra interior offensive lineman with them this season after big injury hits last year.
