Free agent visitor Jimmy Kennedy has the size to man the nose tackle spot in a 3-4.
At 6’5″ and 320 pounds he’s got the body to do it. The question is does Buffalo’s coaching staff see it the same way? I would think they do because they’ve got some veteran players to man the ends in this 3-4 scheme in Marcus Stroud and Spencer Johnson.
And though coach Gailey has said Kyle Williams will be a big part of what they do at nose tackle, it’s hard to believe they’re going to have him grind for 60 plays a game in there for 16 games.
Kennedy by most accounts of the people I spoke with in Minnesota had one of his better seasons last year. Granted he was playing with some very talented ends in Jared Allen and Ray Edwards, so he likely didn’t get as much attention inside on passing downs. But some observers are calling him a late bloomer.
If we get the opportunity to speak with him during his visit, we’ll pass it along here on Buffalobills.com.
