Third Round

G. Michigan Wolverines. 86. player. Pick Analysis. Ben Bredeson. 811. Scouting Report

We know how the Bills want to win games. If it hasn’t become obvious over the last few years, it’ll certainly become clearer in 2020. Buffalo has a franchise quarterback in Josh Allen, but we know this team lives to run the football. The Bills want to play ball-control football, win with defense and punch you in the mouth offensively. Drafting an interior offensive lineman makes sense here.

One player who could be available for the Bills with their third-round selection at No. 86 overall would be Michigan Wolverines guard Ben Bredeson. He is 6-foot-5 and 325 pounds. Bredeson was named First-Team All-Big Ten as a senior in 2019 and was a two-time Second-Team All-Big Ten player the two previous years playing for Jim Harbaugh in Ann Arbor. He’s ready for the pro game.

While Michigan certainly had its limitations offensively the last few years, one could argue the best part of the Wolverines’ offense was its running game. Bredeson was a big part of that and he could be a big game for the Bills at a secondary draft need at guard this spring. As long as the Bills can dictate terms along the line of scrimmage, they should be in good shape going forward.

Overall, this pick feels very Buffalo. Bredeson was all-conference in the Big Ten three times and was a Second-Team All-American as a senior in the trenches for the Wolverines. A big interior offensive lineman from a blue-blood program that loves to pound the rock, Bredeson will fit right in with what Brian Daboll wants to do with his Bills offense for as long as he’s in Orchard Park.
