Even without a first-round pick, the Buffalo Bills are in a position to add good talent in this draft. These are who the mock drafts believe will be selected by Buffalo in the second and third rounds.
So much has changed since we did our last mock draft compilation. The Buffalo Bills sent this year’s first-round pick to Minnesota for explosive wide receiver Stefon Diggs. Even without a first-rounder, the Bills can land some quality players in this draft, who can help the team. Rather than have our readers search the internet high and low to find out who Buffalo will select, EWB did the work for you.
Free agency, for the most part, has come and gone. It’s fair to say the Buffalo Bills took in a little more than they lost with the possible exception of putting pressure on the opposing quarterback. Recent additions Mario Addison, and Vernon Butler, have big shoes to fill from the departed Jordan Phillips and Shaq Lawson.
To address the elephant in the draft room, Buffalo isn’t on the clock until the 54th overall pick which will happen on the second day. Trading for a player of Diggs age and caliber trumps what they would have gotten had General Manager Brandon Beane held on to the 22nd overall pick. His addition to John Brown and Cole Beasley gives the Bills one of the best wide receiver trios in the NFL.
For this edition, we used 18 different mock drafts from such sources as Walter Football, Sports Illustrated, The Sporting News, Draft Geek, NFL.com. CBS Sports, Draft Network, USA Draftwire, nj.com, Bleacher Report, Draftsite, The San Diego Tribune, Yahoo, Pro Football Network, and Draft Diamonds. The sources may change a bit from article to article, depending on timing, but they are credible.
Good news. This draft class is deep in several positions that the Bills could use some help. The question is where do the Buffalo Bills need help the most?
