Cody Ford (OT/OG – Oklahoma)

A relative unknown to the casual draft fan, Cody Ford could be a name that skyrockets up boards. While Ford is relatively unknown, I believe he will be the player the Bills have the best chance to draft at No. 9.

Ford is an absolute monster at 6-foot-4 and 330 pounds. Despite being so large, he is an extremely athletic man. His frame is large but he has good footwork, strong hands, a powerful technique and absolutely is a mauler.

At Oklahoma, Ford played right tackle and that is where he projects in the NFL. He has traits that need to continue to be developed, but he has flashed dominant abilities that make him one of the better prospects in this draft.

Like Williams, Ford could also slide to the inside if he does not pan out at guard and become one of the better guards in the NFL. His upside is huge and the Bills need young players with as much potential as possible.

Having Ford fall to the Bills at No. 9 would be a huge get for the team. His athletic abilities can translate to two different positions where the team needs help.

It would be a tough decision if Buffalo would want to stay and select Ford at No. 9 or trade down to acquire picks, but acquiring a franchise right tackle would be a very difficult opportunity for Buffalo to pass up.
