This draft coming up is a bit of an enigma, because there are so many top prospects that they could fall to any of the teams in the top eight and it would radically effect how the Bills draft at nine. In this article I have detailed the best and worst case scenarios for the Buffalo Bills in this years draft for the picks in front of them.
This draft is chocked full of Quarterbacks who are top talent, this is the break down of number of QB’s taken in the first eight picks:
0: DANGER WILL ROBINSON
Worst case scenarios for the bills in the draft:
1 Jadveon Clowney DE South Carolina
2 Greg Robinson OT Auburn
3 Khalil Mack OLB Buffalo
4 SammyWatkins WR Clemson
5 Mike Evans WR Texas A&M
6 Jake Matthews OT Texas A&M
7 Taylor Lewan OT Michigan U
8 Eric Ebron TE University of North Carolina
This is the worst case scenario the for the Bills, they don’t have many options for drafting and probably the best option would be just to trade out and try to get a plethora of picks in the later rounds.
Projected best pick: Morgan Moses(26th) with 2nd, 3rd, and 6th

Best case scenario
1 Blake Bortles
2 Jadveon Clowney
3 Teddy Bridgewater QB Louisville
4 Manziel QB Texas A&M
5 Derek Carr QB Fresno St
6 Khalil Mack OLB Buffalo
7 Sammy Watkins WR Clemson
8 CJ Mosley ILB Alabama
This would happen in a perfect world, the Bills would have their choice of top talent although the receiving corp has thinned out of the top talent. Wide Receiver is not really a top need for the Bills, they have their choice of top Tackles.
Projected Pick: Greg Robinson OT Auburn
