Buffalo Bills 7-round mock draft: Adding weapons for Josh Allen
By Randy Gurzi
Round 5, Pick 1: Hakeem Adeniji, OT, Kansas
This season, the Bills line has done a good job but there’s still room for improvement. They do have some rather young players, so there’s a chance they can continue to develop — which is especially true of Cody Ford, their second-round pick out of Oklahoma.
Waiting for players to improve is never the best idea though, so Buffalo gets some depth and competition at the position here with Hakeem Adeniji. A four-year starter at Kansas, Adeniji plays with solid movement and has the ideal length for the position.
He’s been mainly a left tackle for the Jayhawks but should have no issues playing as a swing tackle behind Ford and Dion Dawkins.
Round 5, Pick 2: Jordan Elliott, DT, Missouri
Via Cleveland Browns (Wyatt Teller trade)
Just ahead of the opener, Buffalo sent Wyatt Teller to the Cleveland Browns. They ended up with two late-round picks, the first of which they use here on Jordan Elliott from Missouri. Elliott surely looks the part at 6-foot-4 and 315-pounds. And Elliott is able to push blockers around with his power.
Where he needs some work is with his technique. He can get sloppy at times and rely solely on his power. Should they be able to coach him up some, Elliott could end up being a productive player.
