How are the rookies doing?


Recommended Posts

Greg Newsome C+ now injured and has been solid.

JOK A+ dude is a blur, makes great tackles, gets off blocks, a lot of impact plays. 

Scwartz D- ok first game, then didnt fight for a ball, Baker goes to make a tackle and then rips his shoulder, may have screwed our season. 

Togiaia incomplete 

Hudson LT C+ he is out there trying 


Richard Lecounte A+ preseason N/A in season

Gregory Rousseau - exceeding expectations in the run game. Has shown his flashes as a pass rusher and mop up duty. 

Boogie Basham - was inactive the first 3 weeks on a deep unit. Played against Houston and recorded first career sack

Spencer Brown - Was the Bills 6th OL the first few weeks and would play sparingly in blow outs. Started week 4 at RT and won’t look back. Dude has dominated grown men in the run game. 

Tommy Doyle - weekly inactive except last week due to injury on the OL. Still a project. 

Marquez Stevenson - on short term IR

Damar Hamlin - Has seen snaps in a rotational role and looks good.

Eric Stokes is already miles ahead of Kevin King. Super excited to have him with Jaire. 6 PDEF and 1 INT. A

Chris Myers is our starting Center and though has has a few hiccups looks pretty good from what I can tell. B+

Amari Rodgers looks very under whelming. Hasn't gotten a look and I think is our #6 WR despite being a 3rd round pick. D-

Royce Newman. Our starting RG has looked solid imo. 4th round pick. B+

T.J Slaton. Hasn't played much from my knowledge. C

Kylin Hill . Our third dtring RB and KR. Pretty explosive.  Good for a 7th round pick  B.


The rest I have nothing on.

3a. QB Davis Mills - arguably the worst starting QB going into Sundays' games. He's a long term backup, you're conceding defeat if you're starting him.

3b. WR Nico Collins - Had some impressive moments in the preseason, but injured his shoulder vs Jacksonville. Might be a long term piece of the puzzle.

5a. TE Brevin Jordan - Haven't heard much from him.

5b. Garrett Wallow - Haven't heard much from him.

6. Roy Lopez - Pleasant surprise, he's cracked the DL rotation and is getting good penetration when he's at DT. He'll slide over at times and play more of a NT, and he'll stand up blocks pretty regularly. He's a guy who will stick around, a good player to have.

All in all, Jack Caserio was working with a short stack - and didn't do much with it.

Caleb Farley-Coming along slowly.  Not surprising, given injury and not playing for a year.

Dillon Radunz-Also coming along slowly.  Why they're putting him primarily at RG I don't know, but whatever.

Monty Rice-Got a few reps in recently.  May push for playing time if we keep getting poor run defense from Rashaan Evans.

Elijah Molden-Great preseason, then got torched in regular season play, and has been buried in the depth chart since.

Dez Fitzpatrick-On the practice squad.

Rashad Weaver-Great preseason, now a broken fibula.

Racey McMath-Came along quickly preseason, but still a ways to go.  On the team, at least.

Brady Breeze-On injured reserve.  Been injured most of the time.

Payton Turner- Had an impressive debut game in week 2 with 1 sack, 3 tackles for loss, and 5 tackles. He's been limited with injuries to start the year. He definitely has flashed his ability to make plays so far though. Excited by his potential once he gets healthy.

Pete Werner- Had been relatively quiet up until last week. Posted 10 tackles and 1 tackles for loss in his last game. Hopefully a sign of things to come. He's also been solid in coverage so far, but still a very limited sample size as he only played the past 2 weeks for us. Could see him being moved down the depth chart with Kwon Alexander making his way back soon. 

Paulson Adebo- He had started off the first few games looking really good and had been our best rookie. However he did have a rough week against the Giants last week. That said, he's come in and been our starting #2 CB since week 1, so hopefully it was just a down week for him and he bounces back next week. Really like his potential and think he could be a steal for us as a 3rd round pick. 

Ian Book- Didn't do much in preseason. May develop into a serviceable backup down the road, but I don't see him ever being much more than that. 

Landon Young- Has been a backup Tackle and likely won't see many snaps this season.

Kawaan Baker- Didn't make the roster.

1. JaMarr Chase WR- A+ - Stud playmaker, has really brought a deep field threat to this team. 

2. Jackson Carman RG- B+ - Has taken over the RG starting spot due to Sua-Filo injury. Has had his ups and downs, but looks like a long term starter.

3. Joseph Ossai EDGE- A - Looked like a monster in the preseason, but got injured. Currently on IR, will see him Next year. 

4. Cam Sample EDGE- B+ - Rotational player on the DL, has flashed some impressive plays.

4. Tyler Shelvin NT - C- - Has been inactive. More due to the depth on our line.

4. D’Ante Smith LG - B - Had a really impressive preseason, is currently the backup LG. Could be the future at G or T.

5. Evan McPherson K - A - Stud kicker. Has 2 game winning Field goals already. Has a monster leg, could legit be one of the top kickers in the league by years end. 

6. Trey Hill C - C - Backup Center. Traded Billy Price because the team thinks he’s ready.

6. Chris Evans RB- B - Has had some explosive plays, really good hands. Will be more a factor as the season progresses.

7. Wyatt Hubert EDGE- INC- On I

overall this draft is shaping up to be a huge difference maker. Obviously still early, but it could propel this team forward.

Mac Jones has been more or less what I considered the best-case scenario for him to begin the season. Very poised and accurate, but hasn't pushed the ball downfield much yet.  I still have concerns about his arm strength once the weather gets cold, but I can't really find much to complain about to this point.

Christian Barmore looks like he might be one of the steals of the draft. Looks really strong and capable at the POA and has caused some backfield disruptions as well. He's playing roughly half the defensive snaps, which is very rare for a non-1st round Belichick rookie.

Rhamondre Stevenson caught one pass, fumbled it away on what later turned out to be a blown call, and hasn't been seen since.


None of the others have played yet.

1. Joe Tryon, A: Got first significant snaps this past 2 weeks with JPP out and was already making a huge impact, had two sacks this past week against the Pats and looks to be a great pass rusher for our future

2.Kyle Trask, N/A: Hasnt played yet so impossible to grade, in hindsight getting a CB here would have been pretty good but we will see if trask works out.

3.Robert Hainsey N/A: Hasnt played

4.Jaelon Darden C; played 3 snaps on Offense and has been our kick/punt returner for one game, nothing really to say hasnt been good and hasnt been bad just meh for the 3 snaps on offense.

5.KJ Britt, C; Special teams guy as of now and hasnt even taken a defensive snap only special teams.

7A.Chris Wilcox, F: Cut before regular season started 

7B.Grant Stuard, C; Same as Britt special teams guy, but doenst have the potential that britt has.

Leatherwood - has been adequate as a run blocker on a line that cannot run block, and has been... abysmal in pass pro. no other way to spin it. has also had multiple untimely false starts no doubt linked to a lack of confidence in his pass pro. some fans are hoping that these are just growing pains like what Kolton Miller went through as a rookie, but Miller had the injury excuse. Leatherwood just doesnt look comfortable.  D

Trevon Moehrig - has been so-so. the secondary overall has played well as a unit. he hasnt been directly tested much in coverage, so he hasn't really given up huge plays nor has he made many plays on the ball. but not getting challenged means he's not screwing up positionally. he has taken some bad angles in the run game, which is something he has to correct being the single high. C

Divine Deablo - hasn't seen the field much. missed most of camp/preseason. INC

Macolm Koonce - hasn't seen the field. with the way Crosby/Ngakoue/Nassib are playing it's no surprise. Ferrell has held him off as the #4 edge player. D

Tyree Gillespie - hasn't seen the field. squarely behind Abram at SS. Inc.

Nate Hobbs - the big surprise of the group. sorta came out of nowhere, won the nickel job, and has played quite well there. A

Jimmy Morrisey - on practice squad. he couldnt win a job on a line that looks quite awful, including at C. C-
