Kansas pass rusher Dorance Armstrong one of Buffalo Bills’ pre-draft visits, per report

He is seen as a better fit as a 3-4 outside linebacker.

The Buffalo Bills continue to try and improve their poor pass rush this offseason and visited with a rising prospect in the 2018 NFL Draft that could help. Dorance Armstrong, defensive end from Kansas, came to Buffalo for a pre-draft visit according to Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle.

Armstrong is seen by many as a “tweener” defensive end in a 4-3 or outside linebacker in a 3-4. There are concerns his frame won’t be able to add the weight and power needed to play on the line of scrimmage at the next level. He is athletic and agile with high character and drive.

Buffalo also hosted USC defensive end Uchenna Nwosu during the pre-draft process and signed free agents Trent Murphy, Owa Odighizuwa, and Terrence Fede to boost their anemic pass rush. The addition of nose tackle Star Lotulelei to push the pocket has also been mentioned as an aide to the pass rush.

Armstrong is currently projected as a Day 2 pick.
