2015 NFL Draft edge rusher rankings and the Buffalo Bills

New, comments

The Buffalo Bills could stand to add some cheap youth at edge rusher to back up two of the biggest contracts on the team.

The Buffalo Bills have two productive and highly-paid players on their team charged with rushing opposing passers, but they don't have players that can get after the passer in the developmental or rotational roles behind Mario Williams and Jerry Hughes. The duo played more than 70 percent of the snaps on defense in 2014; adding a viable third rusher would keep their starters fresher during games.

In this video, Dan Lavoie and I discuss the pass rushers in the 2015 NFL Draft that could come in and contribute in that role. Should the Bills used pick No. 50 - their top selection - on a rotational player at a position they've invested in heavily other the last three years? Who are the later-round prospects that could contribute in spots on defense and special teams as they work toward a bigger role? We answer these questions and more as we break down the defensive end class in the video above.
