5. Chop Robinson — Edge, Penn State

Drafting another edge rusher probably isn't on the Bills bingo card, but this guy has some serious potential.

While Chop Robinson isn't the most polished edge rusher in his class, he showcased some elite traits during his three seasons at Penn State and he ran a 4.48-second 40-yard dash during his second attempt at the NFL combine, despite being listed at 6'3", 254 pounds.

Robinson only recorded four sacks in 2023, relying on his athletic ability to make plays. If the 21-year old pass rusher can take notes from Buffalo's veteran pass rushers like Von Miller — and add some stronger pass-rushing moves to his arsenal — he could be in line to replace Miller over the next couple of seasons.

Despite having resigned A.J. Epenesa to a two-year contract extension on Monday afternoon, the Bills only have four defensive ends on the roster. With Miller running out of fuel and a contract decision pending for Greg Rousseau next offseason, it could be smart for the Bills to look past 2024 with their first pick, if the board falls that way.

If it all pans out for Robinson, he could have the fastest get-off in the NFL very soon.
