Buffalo Bills: New Year’s Day mock draft brings new playmakers
By Randy Gurzi
Round 3: Cameron Dantzler, CB, Mississippi State
Tre’Davious White is the No. 1 cornerback on this team and he had a great season in 2019. White finished this season with 58 tackles and six interceptions. He also made the play of the game against Pittsburgh in Week 15 that locked up their playoff spot.

In that game, he had two interceptions, including one that set up the go-ahead score for the Bills. As good as he is, the Bills could use more talent at the position.
That leads to the selection of Cameron Dantzler of Mississippi State. Dantzler is a good outside receiver that excels in zone. There’s a chance he could develop into a starter opposite White but at worst, he’s a guy that can come in for nickel duties.
Round 4: Hakeem Adeniji, OT, Kansas
The Jayhawks left tackle, Hakeem Adeniji is the next pick for the Bills as they’re back on the board in the fourth round. Adeniji comes in at 6-foot-5 and 300-pounds and has shown solid athleticism for such a big man.
He’s started every game since 2016 for Kansas and is known as a smart player. As a rookie, he would likely be there for depth only but this seems like a player that could turn into a starter.
For the Bills, this could be a good thing. Should Adeniji ever be able to start (likely at right tackle) they could move Cody Ford inside — and he seems to be a better fit as a guard in the NFL.
