If the Buffalo Bills use their first round draft pick on a cornerback or offensive tackle, who could their options be?
I will be very surprised if the Buffalo Bills don’t draft one of these guys above if given the chance, but I will be equally as surprised if none of them are even available for us. Either way, you have to be prepared for anything in this league.
With that being said, I think there are two players to look at. The first would be Cam Robinson out of Alabama, the top offensive tackle in the draft. The second is Jalen “Teez” Tabor out of Florida, one of the top cornerbacks in the draft.
Jordan Mills is set to be a free agent this offseason and from what he has shown in Buffalo, they are better off letting him walk. Mills is easily the weakest link on the Bills’ offensive line and they will need to upgrade the position.
It’s also important to note that there are 9 other offensive tackles projected to go in the first three rounds, so the Buffalo Bills could always solve this problem later in the draft.
There’s also a question surrounding Stephon Gilmore and whether or not the Buffalo Bills will re-sign him this offseason. If they let him walk, they will have a big hole to fill at the cornerback position. Ronald Darby could handle the best receivers, but they don’t have much depth behind him. Buffalo will get a good look at Kevon Seymour on Sunday, so keep your eyes out for that.
If they do let Gilmore walk, they can surely look in the draft as well. One player that stands out is Teez Tabor, who should be available near the middle of the first round.
With all of that being said, I think the two guys Buffalo should be hoping for are Jamal Adams (safety) or Corey Davis (wide receiver). If those two aren’t available, then Mike Williams (wide receiver) and Cam Robinson (offensive tackle) should be next in line.
