The Buffalo Bills offense has no shortage of talent and Pro Football Focus has been recognizing that talent this week. First, the analytics site said that the Bills had the 14th best quarterback situation entering the season. Not bad when you consider that most sites had the Bills towards the bottom of their quarterback rankings last year when Matt Cassel, EJ Manuel, and Tyrod Taylor were competing for the job.
Next, PFF said that Buffalo's running backs were the NFL's eighth best unit in the league. The Bills have a great one-two punch with LeSean McCoy and Karlos Williams and the depth behind this duo is also impressive. Rookie Jonathan Williams could compete for snaps early in the year and Mike Gillislee showed how dangerous he can be when he gets out into open space.
Now the analytics site is saying that the Bills have a Top 10 offensive line:
10. Buffalo Bills
Projected starters: LT Cordy Glenn, LG Richie Incognito, C Eric Wood, RG John Miller, RT Jordan Mills
Roster depth: Cyril Richardson, Cyrus Kouandjio, Fernando Velasco
Key stat: Richie Incognito finished the 2015 season as PFF’s second-highest-graded guard.
The Bills weren’t able to upgrade their line in the offseason, but they did bring back Cordy Glenn and Richie Incognito, which will certainly help. Buffalo is this high on the list because of how well Glenn, Incogntio, and Eric Wood gelled last season, with all three earning top-10 overall grades at their respective positions. They are this low on the list because John Miller didn’t grade well—even for a rookie—and Jordan Mills has consistently graded poorly in pass protection. The only change was adding Fernando Velasco and letting go of Kraig Urbik as their backup interior linemen.
