3. Offensive Line

When teams draft offensive line in the first round it is usually at offensive tackle. These are the premium positions for this part of the roster but the Bills appear set with Dion Dawkins and Spencer Brown, although Brown is entering the final year of his contract.

Due to that fact, tackle can't be completely written off if one were to fall and the value was too good to pass up.

The reason the offensive line is on this list is more so for the interior of the offensive line at guard and center. It is tough to pinpoint exactly which of the two the Bills would prioritize because they have some flexibility with the way the roster is currently built.

Prior to free agency, the Bills would release long-time center Mitch Morse and all indications are that Connor McGovern will be moving from left guard to center. However, if Jackson Powers-Johnson is available then that could be a great pick that allows McGovern to move back to left guard.

Another option would be Graham Barton, who played a lot of offensive tackle at Duke but appears better suited at guard. This would give the Bills a solid starting interior line with Barton, McGovern and last year's second-round pick O'Cyrus Torrence.
