Buffalo Bills: Three round mock draft before the Combine
By Casey Reed
This is what the Buffalo Bills first three picks could look like in the 2020 NFL Draft.
April 23rd will be a magical day for many former college players. For most players they will hear their names called and for a couple they will walk the stage and shake hands with NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell.
The NFL Draft in many ways is the fans Super Bowl where each team is a winner and each fan base is excited about the talent they added. This years NFL Draft is loaded at wide receiver and for the Buffalo Bills that’s an exciting thought.
For the Bills the main focus will be to add offensive talent around Josh Allen. The Bills’ quarterback took a step in the right direction this season and for a franchise you want to see the third year leap be even more productive.
After the loss to the Houston Texans in the playoffs it became clear that Josh Allen needed a reliable wide receiver. John Brown and Cole Beasley are both great contributors, but having a true number one WR would help Allen take that next step.
The questions that need to be answered is what happens if quarterback hungry teams start trading up and push back blue chip players? Do the Bills take the best available player or do they draft based on need?
With GM Brandon Beane running the show the Bills have taken the best available player when they could. If a premier pass rusher is available for the Bills at 22 expect them to take said player, then wait until the second round to draft a wide receiver. If a solid pass rusher is not there don’t expect the front office to reach on a defensive end but rather grab one of the top WR in the draft. The Bills don’t have many needs to consider in this draft and that’s a good thing for a playoff team.
Here is a three round mock draft based on the Buffalo Bills needs headed into the 2020 season.
