Bills 53 offensive line projection

Recommended Posts

At a minimum, we currently have more quality depth along the o-line compared to last season's group.  Hopefully, some of the free agents we signed for the o-line can be upgrades.  I still think we will pick a guard and/or tackle in this year's draft in the early rounds.  At this point, I believe that target will be Lindstrom (BC) in the second round if he is available.

I get a feeling the Bills are going to trade up for Lindstrom with our second selection

Morse heals all of that. He's the glue, the anchor, the master communicator. It didn't matter who came in at guard next to him in KC. It was a revolving door of guys, but he made it work. We are all in for a real treat to watch his guy go to work. 

 

 

Having a center does indeed make bringing the line together and communicating better more likely.

 

Doesn't speed things up all that much, though. Meshing is going to take time.

Agreed. I am assuming that Bobby Johnson had a big hand in bringing that line together in Indy. And elite guard and a bunch of sort of oft injured misfit pieces came together pretty nicely there. I think it's doable, I just hope they figure out who their top five are quickly.

With so many lineman signed just wondering what everyone thinks will make the final 53 as I believe the draft will be defensive orientated.  Here's my line:

 

Starters:

 

LT - Dawkins

LG - Long

C   - Morse

RG - Feliciano

RT - Nesheke

 

Depth

 

T  - Waddell

C -  Bodine

G - Teller

 

Your thoughts

 

I think I’ll wait till after the draft.

Final roster protections a few weeks into free agency and well before the draft is silly. 

 

 

Thanks for the suggestion but I think I’ll just keep doing what I’m doing.

don't worry, it'll be april soon and you can remind everyone as you had that "it's still march". oh wait, you declined any suggestions so we'll just be looking for the reminder you're sure to be posting.

Have to believe Beane adds at least 2 more players to mix in FA/Draft.  I see another guard coming and an OT.  Long and Feliciano can back up Morse.  9 on active roster then.

 

I will guess at those players currently under contract that will be let go - bolded below

 

Dawkins

Nsekhe

Waddle

Morse

Long

Feliciano

Teller

Boettger - PS target

Ducasse

Sirles

Bodine

McDermott

Why do people think Teller is good?  He had a good game in his first start against the Jets but after that he was pedestrian at best

Morse is a definite upgrade. After that, who really knows. Even if Dawkins progresses and the other 3 spots are true upgrades, it's going to be awhile before they gel as a unit.

that's what sucks about rebuilding an O line. and new scheme for some .

Takes time to get the trust and the nuances of the guy next door.
i think this is really tough to predict at this point. some decent competition should make everyone better : )

Teller would get picked up as soon as he hit the waiver wire.

This feels like a well educated and properly biased line up.
Well done

God forbid a starter goes down, I do not want to put my hopes and prayers for the season into a 2nd year 5th round pick...Teller is not what I would consider solid depth, and I think we can do better, but hey, maybe that’s just me...

Teller over Long, needs to keep developing.

 

 

And starting rookie Right Tackle.

BEFORE the draft, BEFORE mini-camp, BEFORE training camp, AND BEFORE any preseason games, we have a thread predicting what the OL will look like?

Tbh, I can see Nsekhe beating out Dawkins at LT, but I don't see Dawkins as a RG. LG maybe, but he appeared to struggle a lot more when he was being used at RT. I believe he may be best suited to the left side, even if it is at guard.

 

You are right. Dawkins has T/G flex not L/R flex.

Long was terrible last year and has only been average when healthy in recent years. Feliciano has never won a starting job, even in Oakland. I'm very worried if those are our starting G's. I'm not even sure that's as good as Miller and Ducasse. Just because we have new G's doesn't mean they are better. Also, don't believe the other posters who say Teller is terrible. He wasn't all that bad and could have a pretty good sophmore season.

Look at the scouting reports on him. I don't watch NCAA anything, but he appears to have no real weaknesses. Heck, even Superman has his kryptonite.

It is my opinion that we would lose Teller if he was placed on the practice squad.
