Richie Incognito has experienced an impressive career resurgence since (re)joining the Buffalo Bills in 2015. After missing 2014 due to suspension, Incognito signed with Buffalo and went on to be one of the best interior linemen in football. His run blocking ability has allowed for two quality seasons from a supposedly aging LeSean McCoy, as well as paving the way for great red zone backs in Karlos Williams and Mike Gillislee.

Incognito is also a top-tier pass blocker, and leads an improving Bills line in protecting Tyrod Taylor. If Buffalo can find an answer at right tackle, they’ll likely be one of the league’s top five offensive lines. Giving McCoy holes to run through, and Taylor even more time in the pocket, not something opponents want to hear.
