The Buffalo Bills continue doing their homework during the pre-draft process as they shift their attention back to the 2021 NFL Draft. According to Andrew Grover, Bills GM Brandon Beane was one of several NFL executives and head coaches who was in attendance for Alabama’s Pro Day on Tuesday, March 23rd.

Alabama has an outstanding class of graduating players this year that are headed to the NFL Draft in late April, but there’s a good handful of these prospects that the Buffalo Bills won’t have a chance of drafting. Sitting at 30th overall with their 1st round pick, the Bills will likely miss out on prospects like Jaylen Waddle, DeVonta Smith, Christian Barmore, and Patrick Surtain II. However, if one of those four slides to 30th overall, I wouldn’t be shocked if the Bills sprint to the podium to select one of these guys. Surtain and Barmore specifically because those two play positions that are more immediate needs for the Buffalo Bills in 2021.

With that being said, Brandon Beane and company have done a great job so far this offseason to cover up most of the glaring needs on this roster. This should allow the Buffalo Bills to select the best player available on their board at 30th overall.

Below I will highlight 4 prospects, outside of the names I just mentioned above, that I suspect Brandon Beane had a close eye on during Alabama’s Pro Day.
