The Buffalo Bills' preseason performance against the Pittsburgh Steelers on Saturday, August 19, wasn't particularly impressive,
particularly the offensive line. However, rookie O'Cyrus Torrence was the lone shining star.
Ryan Bates, the Bills' starting right guard, was said to be on the outs when Buffalo chose Torrence with the 59th overall pick in the 2023 NFL Draft.
After the draft in April, Spectrum News 1's Jon Scott wrote on X, formerly known as Twitter, "Bates deal isn't substantial enough [that the Bills feel he *has* to start] should O'Cyrus Torrence come in and earn the job this year.
" Bates signed a four-year, $17 million contract with the Bills in 2022; he received an overall grade of 61.8 from Pro Football Focus the previous year.
Torrence, a 6-foot-5, 330-pound guard from Florida, is expected to start the first two preseason games based on how he has been used thus far.
Torrence may have wrapped up the starting right guard job after a great performance, according to Sal Capaccio of WGR 550,
and Ryan Talbot of NYUp.com dubbed the 25-year-old "the only starting offensive lineman that stood out in a positive way" following the Bills' 27-15 loss to the Steelers.
