Bills solidify inside O line in first round

The Bills have a surprising number of needs for a permanent playoff contender, so this pick will be about maximizing value at any number of positions. This scenario gives them the option of adding a versatile blocker in Green, who can play either guard or tackle at a high level.

Green was once a mock draft pick.

As a junior, he made 12 starts in 2021 across multiple positions.

He started seven times at left guard, twice at right tackle, twice at right guard and once at left tackle. Green has 35 career starts in all positions except center.

Green’s versatility could land him in the Bills offensive line on Day 1 if he shows enough during OTAs.

The Bills have two guards ready to hit free agency and one in Daryl Williams who could be a cut candidate.

If Green can get past Jon Feliciano, a top spot would be his.

He is 6-foot-4, 325 pounds and has been described as having a physical and tough style of play. It fits the Bills mold from the start and matches Spencer Brown who started as a rookie last season.

Another of his traits is how he constantly searches for work when discovered. Again, fitting into the Buffalo mold for their recent offensive line selections.

Green has the ability to play both tackle and guard, but most scouts see him as a future high-quality starting offensive guard in the league.
