Buffalo Bills 2021 NFL Draft: 4 positions to avoid in first round
Similar to offensive tackle, the Buffalo Bills have made long-term commitments to their starters with new deals for Jordan Poyer last year and Micah Hyde this offseason. The fact that both starters are now under contract for at least the next two seasons, a first round pick would have trouble making an impact during this time.
The position though does have some concerns in regards to depth with the only other safeties on the roster are Jaquan Johnson and Josh Thomas, two players who have not played much at all during the regular season.
There is certainly ways the coaching staff can get creative to get a player on the field if they were to draft one in the first round. The Buffalo Bills have been in search of a big nickel for a few seasons now and there are some players that fit that role, like Florida State’s Hamsah Nasirildeen. However, this would be a reach in the first round and the Buffalo Bills could find more value at other positions.
