Bills Training Camp: First Unit O-Line Set, For Now

The Buffalo Bills have completed their first walk-through practice of 2011 training camp, and the biggest news coming out of St. John Fisher - via Chris Brown of BuffaloBills.com - is what the team's first-unit offensive line looks like. The "starting lineup," for the time being, is nothing that Bills fans hadn't guessed at all summer.

Eric Wood was the first-team player at center. Kraig Urbik was the first-team right guard, and Erik Pears was the first-team right tackle. Naturally, Demetrius Bell and Andy Levitre were at left tackle and left guard, respectively.

Don't be surprised if the team rotates players at those positions, particularly inside. It's highly likely that second-team center Geoff Hangartner will get some first-team reps, and players such as Chad Rinehart and Mansfield Wrotto could sneak in first-team reps down the line, as well. The situation is still fluid, but clearly, this group of five starting camp is something of a statement.

For the record, Brown also confirmed that Marcell Dareus was a first-team player at defensive end. Again, that's not a surprise, just a confirmation of what was expected.
