DE - BUF
Week 3 Outlook
Buffalo Bills rookie DE Gregory Rousseau has agreed to terms with the team on a standard four-year deal with a guarantee of $11.3M, per Adam Schefter.
Rousseau was the 30th overall pick and the top selection made by the Bills in the 2021 NFL Draft. He didn't play in 2020 due to COVID-19 but recorded an impressive 15.5 sacks during his 2019 season at the University of Miami. The massive 6'7", 265-pound defensive end also racked up 34 tackles, two forced fumbles, and a pass deflection in the same 2019 season and will likely earn reps along a stout Bills' defensive line throughout his rookie year.
The Buffalo Bills have selected edge rusher Gregory Rousseau with the No. 30 overall pick in the 2021 NFL Draft.
An extremely talented edge rusher who broke out with 15.5 sacks as a true sophomore in 2019, Rousseau opted out of the 2020 college season. Unfortunately, a poor Pro Day performance tanked his draft stock, but he remains arguably the most explosive and athletic edge rusher in the class. Rousseau has the upside to become one of the league's premier pass rushers within his first few seasons and should become an IDP asset by year two.
