Buffalo Bills Mock Draft: Two trades help bolster offensive talent
By Ryan Heckman
Bills fans are wondering when the team finally addresses the offensive line, but the draft simply didn’t fall that way just yet. However, with their second pick in the third round, Buffalo gets one of the better centers in college football.
Ohio State’s Luke Wypler is one of the more intelligent offensive linemen in this year’s draft class, coming in having started the last 26 games for the Buckeyes. Let’s put it this way: if you’ve been the one touching the ball before snapping it to CJ Stroud on every snap for the last two years, chances are, you can be trusted.
Wypler is a tad undersized at 6-foot-3 and 300 pounds, but definitely has the ability to add some more mass. That’s probably the biggest knock on him, having room to add strength and overall mass.
But, in every other area other than simply his overall size and strength, Wypler is solid. He’s a smart player who takes great angles and can get to the second level in a hurry. He’s able to pull with the best of them and rarely misses with his hand placement. He excels in zone schemes and would fit well with a mobile quarterback like Josh Allen.
