Dunbar: Bills D-line has underrated depth

Everybody knows that Buffalo’s starting defensive line has three Pro Bowl players and a fourth who has 20 sacks in the last two seasons. But what about the second wave of defensive linemen?

Bills new defensive line coach Karl Dunbar, is just getting to know his new players, but he believes he’s got a second wave of D-linemen that surpass the quality he had when coaching the Jets defensive line.

“I think (Jarius) Wynn, Stefan Charles  and some of the guys we have (Corbin Bryant) I’m looking back at what we had in New York, not to take shots at anybody, but the depth they have here is better than the depth that I had with the Jets,” said Dunbar. “You had a lot of guys who played a lot here last year. The backups in New York didn’t play as much as they backups did here. That might’ve been my fault, but they didn’t, so I like what we have and some of the guys we brought back here I’m pretty happy with what we have.”

Dunbar has had some talented defensive lines in his time as an NFL assistant. He had the ‘Williams Wall’ in Minnesota with Pat and Kevin Williams along with Jared Allen and Ray Edwards. He then had the Jets with Muhammad Wilkerson, Sheldon Richardson anchoring New York’s DL. Now however, he might have not only the most athletic collection of defensive linemen, but among the deepest.
