The Bills Daily Roundup brings you all the news you need to know, including another mock draft that lands Buffalo a wide receiver and defensive end
The Buffalo Bills are in the playoffs, so the team isn’t thinking about the NFL Draft. Sure, there are scouts out there doing their job, but the big decision-makers are all in on 2019.
Even so, we can start to look ahead — and many are doing just that as mock drafts are available just about everywhere you look. And for the Bills, there’s a common theme in those mocks.
Nearly everyone has them going after a wide receiver or edge rusher in their first two picks. That makes sense given the need the team has at each spot.

“It can be argued that those two picks are the two most important needs for the Bills to address heading into the offseason. That is, after the playoffs.”
Colorado receiver Laviska Shenault was the pick in Round 1 and Alton Robinson of Syracuse went in the second. Buffalo would likely be thrilled if things panned out this way. Both players fill huge needs and are great value picks for the later portion of each round.
“It’s tough,” said Jets quarterback Sam Darnold when asked Thursday about what it’s like to play inside New Era Field. “Buffalo fans are crazy in the best way. They get it rocking in there.”
There’s no denying the Bills Mafia shows up each and every week. Teams that travel there every year truly understand what a crazy place it can be — which serves for a good home-field advantage.
“On Thursday, Nsekhe finally took a step in the right direction, having practiced in a limited capacity.”
Ty Nsekhe has split time with rookie Cody Ford but an ankle injury has kept that happening for the past five weeks. He could be back on the field soon now that he’s starting to practice again, albeit on a limited basis.
The Bills are likely to get a receiver in the first round. But just in case they need one later, here’s a look at three different wideouts that could be available at different stages of the 2020 NFL Draft.
