Williamson's take: Offensive line
By Mike Rodak
We recently chatted with ESPN NFL Insider Matt Williamson, a former scout for the Cleveland Browns, about a variety of Bills topics.
Next, we'll take a closer look at the Bills' offensive line:
Overall: "The Bills really need a guard. Their guard play, I thought, was really poor, especially when [Colin] Brown was in there. And [Doug] Legursky is a center. He's a gritty, backup center. I think it would go a long way if they had one more starting-caliber guard, because I think the tackles are good enough and [Eric] Wood is a good center."
On Kraig Urbik: "Urbik's played well. I think he's quality. But they need one more [guard]. I think if Urbik was their second guard, if he wasn't the best guard on the roster, then he's the second guard. He's a big boy, a mauler, a typical Wisconsin lineman that busted out here in Pittsburgh but has really done a much better job in the second half of his career."
On drafting a guard: "No, I don't think there is one. Like, last year there was [Jonathan] Cooper and [Chance] Warmack. There's not a guy to even consider there."
On drafting a tackle: "I'm not sure what name pops up to me. I think [Greg] Robinson and [Jake] Matthews will both be gone. It's a little far away to project that right now, who would be next. I think [Cordy] Glenn would be a great right tackle. He's a good left tackle, but he would be a great right tackle. If a left tackle was sitting there [at ninth overall], that would be interesting."
