The Buffalo Bills have been emphasizing the trenches on both side of the ball since they used their first-round pick on Josh Allen in 2018.
The defensive side has had a bit heavier emphasis in the early rounds of late, so this time around, they get themselves a solid value on the offensive line.
Whether the Bills feel they need an upgrade at tackle or guard, Kenyon Green can be the guy. He has proven inside-outside versatility and that kind of versatility will endear him to NFL coaches.
Most mock draft scenarios up to this point involve the Cincinnati Bengals going after more offensive line help after passing on Penei Sewell in 2021 for Ja’Marr Chase.
So far, that looks like they made themselves a good decision, with all due respect to the work Sewell has done in Detroit.
On the defensive side, the Bengals don’t exactly have long-term solutions figured out at the cornerback position.
Kaiir Elam is a top-10 talent at the position whose production doesn’t match all of his traits at this point, still, the ceiling here is very high and a player with Elam’s size and overall athleticism is well worth the risk in the late first-round.
