Spencer Brown

The Buffalo Bills drafted Spencer Brown in the third round of the 2022 NFL Draft and it wasn't long before he was the starting right tackle as a rookie. He would get 10 starts as a rookie and while there were some growing pains, he showed enough promise (especially run blocking) that he looks to have a high ceiling.

This past season, Spencer Brown didn't take the expected steps forward and would struggle at times during the year. Pro Football Focus gave him a grade of 51.4 last season, which was one of the worst in the NFL among offensive tackles.

The question is whether or not an offseason back procedure impacted his performance during the season and he will bounce back or this is a sign of things to come. The Buffalo Bills seem to be confident that Brown can turn it around after not bringing in any real competition this offseason.

However, if he struggles this season it wouldn't be surprising to see the team make a switch midseason and give David Quessenberry a chance to start.
