Buffalo Bills: The ideal haul in the 2018 NFL Draft
121. Quenton Meeks/Cornerback/Stanford
While the team signed Vontae Davis in free agency, I would expect them to add another corner in the draft. Quenton Meeks could be a great pick if he lasts to this spot, adding a player with a ton of potential that could be asked to start in a season.
Meeks is a bigger corner as he is listed at 6-foot-2. He can matchup with bigger receivers but also is a very good run defender – something that McDermott values in a corner. He finished his junior season with two interceptions, 61 total tackles and 11 pass breakups to show his valuable production this past season.
Playing in the PAC-12, Meeks played UCLA (Josh Rosen), USC (Sam Darnold) twice and Washington State (Luke Falk). In those four games he recorded 18 tackles and five tackle assists, showcasing that he is not afraid of big opponents or big games.
When watching some of his highlights, I regularly saw Meeks on the hip of opposing receivers and as a player that regularly brought a ton of energy. Pairing him with Tre White would give the team two extremely energetic corners while Meeks bring more size than White, meaning he could matchup with the bigger receivers the team will face.
I like Meeks as a later round option with high potential. McDermott and Beane could look at his size and production at Stanford and see a great fit. During his freshman season at Stanford, Meeks played 14 games and led the team with three interceptions. He then was a starter as a sophomore with two interceptions and was named an All-Pac-12 Honorable Mention. He then was named an All-Pac-12 Second Team player his junior season.
