Javon Solomon addresses another need for the Bills. Buffalo will need to find some answers along their defensive front, regardless if they can re-sign some of their pending free agents, Buffalo needs to get younger and bring in new talent to develop. That is where Solomon comes in. He had a tremendous 2023 season, recording 36 stops, 20 QB hurries, nine QB hits, and an astounding 16 sacks, totaling 45 pressures.

NFLDraftbuzz.com projects Solomon going in the fourth round; however, many other sites have him listed as a third-rounder. Pro Football Focus ranks him as their 13th-best edge defender and 93 overall prospect. Solomon brings outstanding speed to the position, reported having a 4.48, 40-time. I'll be watching at the NFL Combine to see if he proves this to be accurate or perhaps faster.
