The 2018 NFL Draft is right around the corner meaning it’s NFL mock draft season! The Buffalo Bills have a bundle of draft picks and the way the offseason has gone, they will need each and every one of them!

For the first time in a long time, Buffalo Bills fans should be excited about the NFL Draft. The team is finally coming off a playoff season and has two first-round draft selections, making for an exciting NFL mock draft season!

There is, however, a catch. Despite making the playoffs, the Buffalo Bills have many needs.

Quarterback Tyrod Taylor’s future is up in the air, center Eric Wood had to abruptly retire, and Buffalo finds themselves with a lot of unrestricted free agents.

The NFL draft, like we know it, is where dreams are made of and where franchises can change forever. The Buffalo Bills can use a change of fate for once and have plenty of resources to do it. Yes, I’m aware the Bills made the playoffs but they still have a ton of work to do. Buffalo looked vulnerable most of 2017 and needed a miracle to finally end their playoff drought.

So, the more difficult thing for the Bills will be to return to the playoffs. The team definitely needs a new quarterback. They also need another defensive tackle to replace Marcell Dareus or perhaps two to replace Kyle Williams as well if he retires.

They could use another linebacker, more wide receivers, and could upgrade at tight end. The Bills’ new center might be on the roster in Ryan Groy but starting fresh could be a smart decision too.

The draft should allow the Bills to fill these holes. The Bills offseason last year was immensely successful under the new regime. Technically, ex-general manager Doug Whaley was the GM during the draft but his immediate firing shows he had little to do with last year’s moves.

With that being said, the new regime is ready to continue to make moves to build a contender.

Their picks for the first three rounds go as follows:

Round 1 – No. 21 overall, No. 22 overall (via KC)

Round 2 – No. 53 overall, No. 56 overall (via LAR)

Round 3 – No. 96 overall (via PHI)

For this first mock draft, I’m going against the writing on the wall and saying the Buffalo Bills stay put to pile on depth and don’t trade up for a quarterback.

These are my guesses and are by no means any kind of report. Just want to make that clear.

So, let the mock drafting begin!
