The 2018 NFL Draft took place less than a month ago but that doesn’t mean the 2019 mock drafts aren’t already out there for Buffalo Bills fans to view.

The 2018 NFL draft class has yet to advance past the honeymoon stage but the 2019 mock drafts are already out there.

You know you’re curious.

The Buffalo Bills show up drafting No. 7 overall in FanSided’s first 2019 NFL mock draft written by Brad Weiss. And that’s what I want to talk about first.

Some Bills fans may see this No. 7 selection and be wondering what Weiss is thinking. The team is fresh off a playoff berth and hopes are high for 2018. The problem remains the questions at quarterback.

It will be hard to project the Bills making the postseason again until we know who the quarterback will be, and see some live game action on the field. Now onto the pick.

Weiss has the Bills selecting Michigan’s Rashan Gary. He is currently slotted as a top ten guy, which could always change. Here is what Weiss had to say:

"With their first round pick in 2019, they should once again focus their attention on the defensive side of the ball. One prospect who is very exciting is Rashan Gary from Michigan. Gary has been a stud on their defense for the past couple of seasons, and should enter the NFL as a legitimate pass rusher right away."

In general, the Bills may be looking to take a defender in 2019 after investing in the quarterback position in 2018. However, a rough season from the receiving corps could have Brandon Beane looking to add a weapon on the outside.

I won’t even begin to speculate on the 2019 draft, but it is interesting to see the mocks out there to get an idea of the top prospects to watch for during the upcoming college football season.

But I know Bills fans don’t want to hear anything about having another top ten pick. It is time to win and hopefully the 2018 draft class helps with that goal.
