Round 2, 54th overall
There isn’t as much information about the following rounds. The deeper a mock draft goes the more of a guessing game it becomes. Different writers may have great internal sources, but there are so many variables in play that it makes predictions very difficult.
Needless to say with all the could happen in the 32 selections between the Buffalo Bills first and second-round picks, a consensus is nearly impossible. Of the 10 mocks that go into the second round, only one player received more than a single selection. There are four offensive linemen, two defensive backs, two edge rushers, and two wide receivers.
Georgia guard Solomon Kindley was the two-time selection. He’s almost ready to start in the NFL right away. Kindley is a good run blocker and can also pass protect. What’s holding him back is his weight. At 6-4, 335-pounds, he has issues with getting into position against fast pass rushers. If Kindley can get past that, he is a long-term keeper.
Among those appearing in the mocks are Josh Jones, T, Houston; Gabriel Davis, WR, Central Florida; Kristian Fulton, S, LSU; Curtis Weaver, Edge, Boise State; Michael Pittman, WR, USC; Cesar Ruiz, C, Michigan; Jonathan Greenard, Edge. Florida; and Cameron Dantzler, CB, Mississippi State.
Curtis Weaver from Boise State is really intriguing in this spot. He’s probably the most polarizing player of this draft. Some think Weaver could be the best pure pass rusher in the class, Others believe he didn’t face good enough competition in college to judge him on par with the top guys like Epenesa and Gross-Matos.
Dan Brugler of the Athletic is the mock drafter who selected him here. CBS’ Chris Trapasso has the Buffalo Bills drafting him in the first round. Matt Miller of Bleacher Report has Weaver coming to Western New York in the third round. It would be interesting to see where he is on the Bills draft board.
