Buffalo Bills Playoff Hype – “Thunderstruck” – 2023

Buffalo Bills Offseason Review:

Buffalo entered this offseason with a strong roster that didn’t have many glaring needs. Shoring up the offensive line, adding offensive skill position depth, and retaining key players on defense were clear priorities, however. Free agent addition Connor McGovern, who can play guard and center, will likely start at left guard. Rookie second round pick O’Cyrus Torrence will likely battle Ryan Bates to see who will be the starting right guard. Torrence was arguably the top interior offensive lineman in college this past season, and should be viewed as the favorite to start sooner than later.

There were rumors that Buffalo was seeking to add offensive playmakers this offseason, especially after Devin Singletary and Isaiah McKenzie left to play elsewhere. Early in free agency the Bills signed runningback Damien Harris, and wide receivers Deonte Harty and Trent Sherfield. They also drafted Florida wide receiver Justin Shorter in the fifth round, but none of these additions move the needle much. Trading ahead of Dallas and selecting tight end Dalton Kincaid in the first round is the move that stands out. Kincaid is undersized for the position, but was widely viewed as the best receiving tight end in this year’s Draft class. He adds another weapon in the red zone, and opens up the passing game more for Stefon Diggs and Gave Davis on the outside.

Losing stud linebacker Tremaine Edmunds to Chicago in free agency hurt, but he was the only key defensive player the team lost this offseason. To fill the void left by Edmunds, the Bills re-signed a trio of linebackers, signed Travin Howard via free agency to add depth, drafted Dorian Williams in the 3rd round of the NFL Draft, and extended Matt Milano. Williams was one of the better linebackers in the college in pass coverage, and could be a starter sooner than later. Bringing in Poona Ford as a free agent, while re-signing Jordan Phillips and Shaq Lawson keeps the depth up front a strength. Leonard Floyd was a late signing that bolsters an already deep rotation on the edge.

The secondary struggled last season, and dealing with injuries to key starters did not help things at all. Micah Hyde returns after missing all but the first two games of the season. Re-signing Jordan Poyer was very important to the team, as his leadership was missed when he missed five games due to injury. The Taylor Rapp signing adds a quality third safety with plenty of starting experience. Rapp is a willing run defender, and gives Buffalo the versatility to use all three safeties on the field at the same time in different roles.
