The Buffalo Bills landed Harrison Phillips in the third round a few years ago, which most people thought was exceptional value. Since then, he hasn’t managed to crack the starting defenisve line for the Bills and it isn’t so much that he has disappointed, but rather that he hasn’t gotten a lot of chances.

In the one career game where he had 50% of the snaps or more, he ended up with 2 TFLs and for a 310 lb. DL, you can’t really grade on anything other than his ability to use his power to affect the running game.
For the Titans, they are going to have a void behind Jeffery Simmons and Daquan Jones in terms of a power player who can handle himself in a phone booth while also having the wherewithal to read his blocks and figure out what is happening.
In college, Phillips had 26.5 TFLs in his last two seasons and he was even more disruptive than that when you watch the tape. I think at the NFL level he just needs to get on a depth chart with the potential to start, and I don’t think that is something he will get in Buffalo.
The Bills already drafted Ed Oliver last year and they only have Phillips until 2021, so why not move him for a player or pick instead of letting him waste away on your bench?
