2nd Team O-Line better than last year's 1st Team

I dont think there is a chance in hell that he makes it to the PS....would be shocked...if we cut him...I think we lose him.  Good OL just too hard to find.  So the question becomes who do we keep......does the fact that Ford being able to play OG and OT allow us to keep one extra?  Does a guy like Spencer Long go?

We Traded Andrew Whitworth during last years preseason.  Probably shoulda kept him though.

The interior of the second team OL looks to be Long and Teller (if he makes the 53), along with Feliciano at C. 

 

I don’t know if I should laugh or cry about how much better Long-Feliciano-Teller is over the starting interior we had last year.  

 

The only constant is Teller and he’s now in his 2nd year and may, or may not, make the 53 man roster. 

 

 

Last years group was embarrassing and there is not doubt our second team line this year is better than our first team line last year.

Don't see Teller making the roster.

 

We'll keep the starting 5 -

 

Dawkins

Spain

Morse

Ford

Nsekhe

 

 

And then Long and Feliciano can play all 3 positions on the IL.  They'll be our 2 IL backups for depth.  That likely leaves 1 or MAYBE 2 spots for swing tackles.  I don't see the reason why we'd keep an additional OG.  Most teams keep 8 OL on a roster and I see us doing just that.  Especially cause we could kick Ford back out to RT if Nsekhe gets banged up and throw Long or Felciano in at RG to fill in for Ford vacating it

Depends on how much they like Teller long term.  He does have some nice traits.  Also, the Bills may still have long term intentions of moving Ford to tackle permanently.  Nsekhe is 33 and on a 2 year contract.  The fact that Ford can play tackle makes carrying the extra guard less impractical than if Ford were strictly a guard.  8 is a standard complement of offensive linemen, as you say, but 9 is not unheard of.  I think Buffalo had 11 at one point last season.

If that is your starting 5,who is the backup tackle? Ford can move to RT and Nsekhe can flip to LT? So,based on what we have seen,Teller,Long and Feliciano are interior backups? Feliciano & Long compete at RG,Ford at RT and Nsekhe as back up?Maybe McDermott or one of the new guys also stays. With Morse's  injury history Bills have to be prepared so keeping 9 is possible

I will be a broken record on this:  as bad as anyone thought the Oline was last year they were actual much, much worse.  I believe they got too much credit in some situations where they didn’t deserve it.

Spencer Long had some decent run blocking with the twos. 

Feliciano seemed a competent center. I suspect that being bracketed by Spain, and Ford helped in that regard. I was surprised they had Feliciano in there, and not Long, who was listed as second center, after Morse, on their unofficial depth chart. I assumed his hamstring was still an issue, but then he was playing guard and blocking downfield on run plays. 

Thought the same way too but also realized Long had no reps at C.  With Bodine hurt now expect Long, Feliciano and Boettger to split reps next FRI.  Assumes Morse is out for another game at least.
