The Bills got some production out of their 2020 rookie draft class. However, it wasn’t enough to ranked very highly by NFL.com. The league’s official website reflected back on the 2020 season and ranked every team’s rookie class.
First and most importantly, I make no apologies for the pun in the subtitle. With the news breaking Monday afternoon that former Houston Texans’ star and three-time NFL Defensive Player of the Year J.J. Watt was signing a two-year contract with the Arizona Cardinals, Buffalo Bills fans are turning their attention towards the unrestricted free-agent and draft classes at the position.
Buffalo Bills fans and the coaching staff agree that the team’s pass rush isn’t as good as it needs to be. The Bills have thrown a lot of free-agent money at the position recently, but only two draft picks have been spent there (only one before the final round) under general manager Brandon Beane and head coach Sean McDermott. second-round pick A.J. Epenesa and 2019 seventh-rounder Daryl Johnson both contributed in 2020, but neither are ready to be the main guy at defensive end.
