2nd Round

RB Breece Hall, Iowa State

Measurables: 6-1, 220lbs

The Buffalo Bills have gotten solid production from former third round pick Devin Singletary. Still, he has not been the game-changing player many were hoping for at the position. The following year’s third-round pick Zack Moss has essentially been a bust for Buffalo, who cut back his snaps in the second half of the season.

Enter Breece Hall, an extremely well-rounded back with NFL size and speed. He may not be a track star, but he easily would be the fastest running back that Buffalo would have. Hall can play all three downs and has proven production as both a runner and a receiver. In his last two seasons in college, he combined for 137 broken tackles.

Hall is not super shifty and will be unable to avoid some blown-up plays in the backfield. Still, he is a really explosive runner who likely could be the head of a running back committee in Buffalo his rookie season.

Hall would give the Buffalo Bills a player who is a threat to score from anywhere on the field. His speed and tackling breaking ability would give Buffalo a playmaker in the backfield that teams have to worry about stopping.

Also Available in the Second Round

IOL Dylan Parham, Memphis

Although the Buffalo Bills re-signed Ryan Bates and signed Rodger Saffold, there are some depth concerns on the interior after losing Jon Feliciano. Dylan Parham is an athletic interior offensive lineman who could play all three interior positions. He lacks some strength but is very good with his hands and could be an excellent pick for depth and transition into a starter in the future.

TE Isaiah Likely, Coastal Carolina

Isaiah Likely fits the WR/TE mold that teams are trying to find in modern football. He can lineup all over the offense in TE/WR positions and is actually a surprisingly good blocker. Likely did not have the greatest competition at Coastal Carolina. There is some concern that he is not good enough at any particular skills to make him anything more than a solid role player.
