Daniel Jeremiah: Buffalo Bills Going Defense With 50th


There is a lot of speculation as to what direction the Buffalo Bills are going to be taking when it comes to day 2 of the draft and they are finally on the clock with the 50th overall pick in the 2015 NFL Draft and then again with the 81st overall pick.

Daniel Jeremiah, from NFL.com, has put together a full 2 round mock draft.  Jeremiah has the Buffalo Bills heading in to the defensive side of the ball, which would be expected with that being Rex Ryan’s specialty and strong suit when it comes to the draft, and drafting a linebacker out of UCLA.

Jeremiah breaks down the pick for the Buffalo Bills as…

"Kendricks is instinctive and athletic in coverage.– NFL.comJeremiah likely sees that Manny Lawson will be entering the final year of his contract with Buffalo in 2015, and that coupled with the release of Keith Rivers and trade of Kiko Alonso gives credence to the possibility of a linebacker being taken on day two, if not round two, in round three.– BuffaloBills.com"

We took a look at Eric Kendricks as a possibility for the Buffalo Bills come the 50th pick, back earlier in April.

This was my take on Eric Kendricks back on April 9th.

"Eric Kendricks could be an viable addition to the Buffalo Bills linebacking corps.  He is on the smaller side so as an inside linebacker in a 3-4 he may be able to get away with it, but the Buffalo Bills could move Nigel Bradham and Preston Brown inside and have Kendricks on the weakside, when the are in that 3-4 defense."

I think that the Buffalo Bills drafting Eric Kendricks at the 50th overall pick is a possibility.  They could use some linebacker depth and with the reputation that Rex Ryan has drafting defensive players, it is quite possible that he goes defense with the first pick, even though a better option might be to look offensive lineman at this point, for the Buffalo Bills.
