There are so many NFL legacies coming into the NFL these days, aren’t there? While Joey Porter Jr.’s dad excelled at getting pressure on the quarterback in his days as an NFL player, he’s proving at Penn State that he’s going to be the one taking advantage of a good pass rush with his ball-hawking skills.

Porter already has six passes broken up in just two games this season for Penn State, and at 6-foot-2 is making his case to be picked much, much earlier than this come time for the 2023 NFL Draft. The Tampa Bay Buccaneers could be in a super weird position next offseason depending on what Tom Brady does, but with Todd Bowles as the head coach and Jason Licht in the general manager’s chair, you know that a corner like Porter — especially with his NFL bloodlines — is going to be on their radar.

31. Buffalo Bills: Antonio Johnson, DB, Texas A&M

The Buffalo Bills are one of the most complete rosters in the entire NFL, and they proved their contender status in a Week 1 blowout over the reigning champion Los Angeles Rams. Although Buffalo seems to have it going on in just about every area of the roster, they will have questions after the 2022 season just like every other team, even if they have fewer questions than others.

One question that this team will need to address is what they will do about the expiring contract of safety Jordan Poyer, who has been a crucial piece of their defense. Even if Poyer is retained, and we have every reason to expect him to be, the Bills could look to fortify their secondary with a player like Antonio Johnson, a 6-foot-3 weapon in the secondary with playmaking abilities.
