Round 6, 207th overall: Alex Taylor, OT (South Carolina State)
With the Buffalo Bills second pick in the sixth round, the team adds some depth at offensive tackle with the selection of Alex Taylor. This is a player that the Bills need to be patient with but if they are, and give him time to develop, they could have a starting tackle on their hands in a few years.
Taylor is an imposing physical player at 6’9″ and 308 pounds and is incredibly athletic for his size. He just recently made the switch from basketball to football when the head coach at South Carolina State, Na’Shan Goddard, was in need of tackles and just happened to come across Taylor.
The offensive tackle position has some question marks for the Buffalo Bills entering the 2020 season. Do they believe Cody Ford is the answer or should he move inside to guard? Can Ty Nsekhe stay healthy? Could Daryl Williams return to the level of play he showed in 2017 while with the Carolina Panthers?
These are questions that the coaching staff will need to sort out but they have plenty of options. By the Bills adding a player like Alex Taylor, they can let him learn the position more for a year or two and eventually compete for the starting right tackle job.
