Buffalo Bills: A slight change in latest FanSided 2019 NFL mock draft
The Buffalo Bills are currently projected to pick near the top of the 2019 NFL Draft. That means a future star could be headed to town.
The Buffalo Bills are already 0-2 which means the early mock drafts have the team near the top.
The latest 2019 NFL mock draft from FanSided has the Bills picking second overall, with the Arizona Cardinals picking first. Still not sure why the Bills are behind the Cardinals in national power rankings.
Anyway, that is the only real change. What remains the same is that the Bills are projected to take Nick Bosa with that No. 2 overall pick.
From the article:
"With that pick, the Bills should look to get better on defense, as that unit has looked incredibly deficient through the first two weeks of the season. Nick Bosa from Ohio State is the best edge rusher this draft class has to offer, and while the Bills have missed on edge guys in the past, Bosa looks to be a can’t-miss prospect."
Bosa is currently out with a groin injury but he is expected back this year. So it is nothing catastrophic that will cause his draft stock to fall.
The Bills filled two key positions in the first round of the 2018 NFL Draft. Taking Josh Allen and Tremaine Edmunds gave the team two fixtures at two of the most important positions in football.
The next logical step is to fill other needs, while still taking the top player available. Bosa would come in and give the Bills a legitimate star along the defensive line. With Kyle Williams likely retiring and Shaq Lawson potentially on his way out next year, Bosa could join Harrison Phillips as two young stars along that line.
It would be nice to get a player like Bosa but it would also be nice if this team could not remain in the basement of the NFL all season. The idea of tanking excites some fans, yet it is hard to stomach after seeing the team reach the postseason.
