Here is our first round Buffalo Bills mock draft (4.0 edition). Who will the Bills select at #19? Read on and find out.
When doing this Buffalo Bills mock draft we tried to take into consideration the overall talent of the players available and each team’s needs. We were hoping in this exercise to get a clearer picture of the potential players the Bills might have available to them at #19 overall. So here goes…
1. Los Angeles Rams – Jared Goff – QB – California
2. Philadelphia Eagles – Carson Wentz – QB – North Dakota State
3. San Diego Chargers – Joey Bosa – DE – Ohio State
4. Dallas Cowboys – Ezekiel Elliott – RB – Ohio State
5. Jacksonville Jaguars – Jalen Ramsey – CB – Florida State
6. Baltimore Ravens – Laremy Tunsil – OT – Mississippi
7. San Francisco 49ers – Ronnie Stanley – OT – Notre Dame
8. Cleveland Browns – DeForest Buckner – DE – Oregon
9. Tampa Bay Buccaneers – Shaq Lawson – DE – Clemson
10. New York Giants – Myles Jack – LB – UCLA
11. Chicago Bears – Darron Lee – LB – Ohio State
12. New Orleans Saints – Leonard Floyd – LB – Georgia
13. Miami Dolphins – Vernon Hargreaves – CB – Florida
14. Oakland Raiders – Reggie Ragland – LB – Alabama
15. Tennessee Titans – Eli Apple – CB – Ohio State
16. Detroit Lions – Jack Conklin – OT – Michigan State
17. Atlanta Falcons – Sheldon Rankins – DT – Louisville
18. Indianapolis Colts – Noah Spence – DE – Eastern Kentucky
19. Buffalo Bills – Taylor Decker – OT – Ohio State
The Bills only have four tackles on their roster after the recent release of Tyson Chandler. Two of those tackles, Cyrus Kouandjio, and Seantrel Henderson have health concerns heading into next year. Jordan Mills played inconsistently last season leaving Cordy Glenn as the Bills only reliable offensive tackle on the roster. Adding a guy like Decker to the team could instantly solidify the Bills tackle spot for years to come.
Taylor is known to be a very good run blocker but he also has the length to keep pass rushers from taking their preferred routes to the quarterback. He projects better as a right tackle in the NFL than a left tackle but that’s what the Bills are in need of.
Most experts have Decker going in the top 25 and many of them have him being selected before the Bills pick at 19. The Bills can also use help at a number of other positions mostly on defense but the offensive tackle talent in the draft drops off right after Decker.
Buffalo should consider taking him if he falls to them in the first round because you can still get starting defensive lineman and linebackers later on in this deep draft whereas you might not be able to find another starting right tackle after Decker is off the board.
20. New York Jets – Paxton Lynch – QB – Memphis
21. Washington Redskins – A’Shawn Robinson – DT – Alabama
22. Houston Texans – Laquon Treadwell – WR – Mississippi
23. Minnesota Vikings – Jason Spriggs – OT – Indiana
24. Cincinnati Bengals – Josh Doctson – WR – TCU
25. Pittsburgh Steelers – Mackensie Alexander – CB – Clemson
26. Seattle Seahawks – Will Fuller – WR – Notre Dame
27. Green Bay Packers – Jarran Reed – DT – Alabama
28. Kansas City Chiefs – Andrew Billings – DT – Baylor
29. Arizona Cardinals – Vonn Bell – S – Ohio State
30. Carolina Panthers – Robert Nkemdiche – DT – Mississippi
31. Denver Broncos – Conor Cook – QB – Michigan State
