"The Bills were 30th in the league in sacks last year. They desperately need a dynamic pass rusher to improve a woeful defensive unit. Insert Upshaw. The Bills now possess arguably the best past rusher in the draft, who will team up with Shawn Merriman next year to form a formidable pass rushing pair."
Analysis after the jump.
Since the Bills are sticking with a 4-3, Upshaw will have to go through a slight transition to move to a defensive end. However, given his pass rushing skill set, it seems like he'd be able to make the change.
Given his strength and ability to attack the ball, the Bills are making a good decision here to add some fire to their defensive line. The Bills completely imploded down the stretch last year. Beyond adding help for Ryan Fitzpatrick, adding sound defensive players who can attack the quarterback is a must.
