Five Senior Bowl standouts that could be Buffalo Bills targets come time for the NFL draft.
The Senior Bowl, and the rest of the senior all-star games, mark the official start to draft season for the NFL. The Buffalo Bills could be in a position to get some of the game’s standouts in the upcoming draft.
With dozens of small-school prospects suiting it up all week, it was likely the first opportunity for many GMs, coaches and scouts to see some of these athletes in person.
While Senior Bowl week won’t likely make or break a prospect, one thing it does do is confirm what you’ve seen on film from a prospect all season.
Take Wyoming quarterback, and likely top-5 pick, Josh Allen for example. As Bleacher Report lead NFL draft analyst Matt Miller wrote in his latest article regarding the Senior Bowl:
"“If you went to Mobile liking Allen’s potential and traits, you left Mobile with your thoughts confirmed. If you aren’t impressed with Allen and want more accuracy, you probably saw that too.”"
With four picks in the top-56 selections and some big holes to fill, the pre-draft process, Senior Bowl included, is going to be full of hype. Especially if Buffalo moves on from quarterback Tyrod Taylor.
But which likely Bills’ targets stood out during Senior Bowl week?
Let’s find out.
