Five Buffalo Bills positional battles to watch against the Cinc

innati Bengals With the third week of the preseason upon us Buffalo Bills T-Shirt , the all-important dress rehearsal game is set to take place. The Buffalo Bills will face off against the Cincinnati Bengals in the most meaningful of the meaningless football games played in August. While the number one objective is to leave the field fully healthy on Sunday, there are plenty of positional battles still going down in Buffalo. Here are a few worth noting.Defensive EndsTrent Murphy is slowly working his way back to health, but in the meantime, some of the other players have done some good things. While plenty of praise has come Shaq Lawson’s way for a strong camp, an under-the-radar player making plays is Terrence Fede. The fifth-year pro out of Marist College has 5 tackles and a sack thus far on the preseason. At 6’4” and nearly 270 pounds, he possesses the size head coach Sean McDermott loves out of his defensive ends. Given Murphy’s injury history, the team may be wise to go with five defensive ends out of camp, and Fede has played well enough to merit consideration behind Lawson, Murphy, Jerry Hughes, and Eddie Yarbrough.Wide ReceiversHow much will Corey Coleman play? What about Zay Jones? Will Andre Holmes and Rod Streater continue to see tons of first-team reps? There are so many questions with this group, even though it seems that the top six (the aforementioned foursome plus Kelvin Benjamin and Jeremy Kerley) seem to be set in stone. Can one of the young guys (Ray-Ray McCloud? Brandon Reilly? Austin Proehl?) sneak on the roster? It’s a long shot, but the pecking order on Sunday could tell us a lot about just how long that shot is.Slot CornerThe battle between rookie Taron Johnson and veteran Phillip Gaines has been intense so far, with the rookie acquitting himself quite well. While both players are near-locks to make the roster, it will be interesting to see which one earns the most time in the nickel defense. Neither player has made a big play yet during the exhibition season, but if one of them can, they may earn the upper-hand in the competition.Offensive LineThe offensive line was especially brutal last week against Cleveland. Dion Dawkins was rag-dolled by Myles Garrett (which is somewhat forgivable www.buffalobillsteamonline.com , as Garrett is a phenomenal talent), Vladimir Ducasse looked lost, and Russell Bodine was downright bad. A bounce-back performance from Dawkins is a must, but more noteworthy will be the play of the other interior linemen. Rookie Wyatt Teller has earned praise for his solid work so far this preseason, and veteran Ryan Groy has been the much better center so far. Starting jobs are on the line here.QuarterbackOf course we’ll be watching this battle play out—it’s Josh Allen’s first professional start! If he plays lights-out, he could force the coaching staff into naming him the starter for the Bills’ first real game against the Baltimore Ravens. If he plays poorly, then the coaching staff can say that they gave him the experience of starting a game week, but Nathan Peterman or AJ McCarron is their guy. Speaking of McCarron, it will be interesting to see if he is able to play in the game, and if he is, which unit he plays with during the contest. I assume that he’ll be with the third team if he plays, but in any case, a strong outing would be a welcome sight after a poor performance against Cleveland. He’s been limited in practice this week with a sore shoulder. Nathan Peterman has been hot, as well, so the quarterback battle is still raging in Western New York.What battles are you most looking forward to watching?2019 NFL Draft Season Preview: Defense With the college football season imminently approaching, it’s never to early to look ahead to the 2019 NFL Draft and explore which position groups are deepest, and which players are worth watching www.authenticsbuffalobills.com , focusing on the defensive side of the ball. This year’s defensive line class has the potential to be one of the best in quite some time, while the secondary group lacks depth outside of a few very well known prospects.Defensive TackleOn CBS Sports’ rankings, there are currently five defensive tackles ranked within the top thirteen prospects, which gives you a sense of how talented this position group truly is. Houston’s Ed Oliver is the main attraction: he has the quickness of Aaron Donald and the strength of a player 20 pounds heavier. He’s a top-five lock. Michigan’s Rashan Gary is an end/tackle hybrid that hasn’t yet reached his massive potential but can play up and down the defensive line. Clemson sports two elite tackles in Dexter Lawrence and Christian Wilkins, with Lawrence having the higher ceiling of the two. Per usual, Alabama features an NFL caliber lineman in Raekwon Davis, who will likely make a bigger name for himself as the year goes on. The wild card of the group though is Jeffery Simmons of Mississippi State. He flashed some dominant tape in last year but needs to show more consistency this year. All of the above players are likely to be first round picks and that’s only scratching the surface. This is a rare group.Edge RusherThough not quite as stacked as the previous group, this year’s group of edge rushers has plenty of time to improve their reputation. Ohio State’s Nick Bosa appears to be a more athletic version of his brother Joey, and will likely be drafted higher than Joey because of it. Clemson’s Clelin Ferrell has Shaq Lawson’s size but also a quicker get-off and longer arms. Then there is Miami’s Joe Jackson, who is primed for a breakout year along with the rest of the Hurricane’s defense. A player I’ll be watching closely is Josh Allen’s former teammate at Wyoming, Carl Granderson. The senior has the size, speed and wingspan of a dominant college player, but needs to put it all together this year.LinebackerA solid class overall so far, there will be a linebacker that suites every defensive coordinator’s taste. If you’re looking for a franchise middle linebacker look no further than LSU’s Devin White or Notre Dame’s Te’von Coney. If you want outside linebacker that can cover and shut down outside runs, Kentucky’s Josh Allen, UB’s Khalil Hodge, or Michigan’s Devin Bush are more than capable. It will also be interesting to see if Alabama linebacker Mack Wilson can steal the show from his sophomore counterpart Buffalo Bills T-Shirt , Dylan Moses.SafetyThere’s still plenty of time of players to emerge out of this year’s safety class, but so far it is one that lacks depth. Having said that, the class seems to be stacked with free safety-type ballhawks in the secondary, starting with Boston College’s Lukas Denis. Denis is an ideal centerfielder in the mold of Earl Thomas or Jairus Byrd, coming down with seven interceptions in 2017. Miami’s Jaquan Johnson also seems to have a knack for turnovers, with four interceptions to go along with three forced fumbles last year. Up in Washington, the Huskies have JoJo McIntosh, who at 6’1” 205 pounds loves to come downhill against the run and punish runners. CornerbackSimilar to safety, the corner class is a bit of an unknown quantity. What is known is that LSU’s Andraez “Greedy” Williams and Georgia’s Deandre Baker will be competing all season for the title of “Best College Cornerback.” Outside of those two, Julian Love for Notre Dame is a smart, technically sound player that is under-hyped at this point in time and Michael Jackson has the size teams want in their outside press corners (6’1”). Other prospects, like Duke’s Mark Gilbert and Ohio State’s Kendall Sheffield, are getting a fair share of good press, but judgement should be withheld until they prove they can handle full seasons as starting corners.
