The Buffalo Bills have plenty of options in the first round and one of the most glaring needs on the roster is at the wide receiver position.
It’s a Monday night. The Buffalo Bills don’t play again for months.
Sounds like a perfect time to look at the latest 2019 NFL mock draft from NFL Spin Zone.
We have looked at several different mock drafts as of late from both inside and outside the FanSided network. That has led to seeing several different positions serving as the focus for the Bills at No. 9 overall.
This latest mock draft from NFL Spin Zone, written by Randy Gurzi, sees the Bills drafting a wide receiver at No. 9 overall. This time, it is N’Keal Harry out of Arizona State.
Here is some of what Gurzi had to say about the pick:
"Now that he has a year under his belt, the Bills hope for the next step to come and aid him in that process is N’Keal Harry who they select with their No. 9 overall pick in this 2019 NFL Mock Draft. Harry has excellent size and can win contested passes. He’s also great after making the catch, which can take a lot of the pressure off Allen moving forward."
Such a selection comes down to whether Brandon Beane feels he needs to use such a high pick on a receiver, or if he can find similar value at the position via other routes such as he did with Robert Foster.
There will also be over a month of free agency before the draft, so the Bills could make a splash at receiver during that period of time as well.
Personally, I would like the Bills to focus on the offensive or defensive line with such a high pick. Yet as a fan I also have to place my trust in the scouts making the decision. Unless they make a bad one. Then I have something to write about.
Harry is a worthy pick at No. 9 overall and I have seen him projected even higher in other mock drafts. The 6-foot-4 receiver could come to Buffalo and serve as that big outside threat from day one.
Yet I have read about concerns with his speed, so his workouts over the next few months will be telling.
He could be a future Hall of Famer or even a bust. All we can do now is add him to the list of players the Bills could potentially take at No. 9 overall based on his current draft projection.
