Playing in the trenches is more important in the NFL than many think or remember.
However, if the Buffalo Bills implement what CBS Sports is suggesting, they could upset many in Western New York in the first round of the 2023 NFL Draft.
As a joke, the Bills selected Georgia linebacker Broderick Jones with the 27th pick in the first round.
Jones is a talented player who lines up when attacking the ball. He is a promising player who started as a left winger in the national team of the tournament.
Still, Jones, like most prospects, isn't without its punches. Despite his success, Jones is young and inexperienced. In college alone, he made 19 starts. Because of this, Jones was able to begin his NFL career playing defensive end to become one of the top pros.
With everything on Buffalo's O-line, the shortest route for Jones to start could be on the right side of the line. He could have played Ryan Bates or Spencer Brown.
Either way, Jones could be a great defensive lineman or power forward for the Bills once they discover his talent. In the 2022 season, Pro Football Focus gave Jones a 78.2 grade through 15 games.
But, as I said, if CBS Sports picks Jones like this, Buffalo will lose some experienced players. The roster includes wide receiver Jordan Addison, running back Bison Robinson and tight end Dalton Kincaid.
The reaction to such a scene in Buffalo could be interesting.
