Round 5, Pick 1: Albert Okwuegbunam, TE, Missouri
At one point, Albert Okwuegbunam looked to be a premium draft selection, but then he took a step back this season. Okwuegbunam scored 11 touchdowns as a redshirt freshman in 2017 which had him on many draft boards heading into 2018.

He then had 466 yards and six touchdowns which felt like a letdown. He didn’t do much to change that perspective in 2019, catching 26 passes for 306 yards and six touchdowns.
His route running needs work but he’s a large target with good hands. And as Buffalo saw against Baltimore, you can never have too many tight ends that are able to catch passes. Pairing him with Dawson Knox could give Josh Allen some decent weapons at the position, as long as they’re patient with Okwuegbunam.
Round 5, Pick 2: Raequan Williams, DT, Michigan State
Star Lotulelei hasn’t been the impact player Sean McDermott expected and Jordan Phillips is a free agent after the season. For those reasons, the Bills go out and grab a defensive tackle here in Raequan Williams out of Michigan State.
At 6-foot-4 and 305-pounds, he has plenty of size for the position and plays with a lot of power. He’s not consistent but he does constantly find a way to get into the backfield and has 28.5 tackles for a loss and 11.5 sacks in his four years with the Spartans.
