Round 7 (227 Overall) – Isaac Taylor-Stuart, CB (USC)

Round 7 (244 Overall) – Jeremiah Gemmel, LB (North Carolina)

The Buffalo Bills round out this mock draft by adding more depth on the defensive side of the ball with the selection of cornerback Isaac Taylor-Stuart out of USC and linebacker Jeremiah Gemmel from North Carolina.

If the Bills do not bring back Levi Wallace, even with selecting Roger McCreary in Round 1, the Bills add more depth with Isaac Taylor-Stuart is described as an athletic cornerback who is not afraid to help in run support.

As for Jeremiah Gemmel, this final selection makes sense as a developmental linebacker who eventually can replace A.J. Klein as the primary backup to Tremaine Edmunds and Matt Milano.
