In the second round, Beane opts to add an extra pick in this draft by way of the Houston Texans. He sends Houston there no. 59 pick in exchange for a selection just six spots later, plus a fifth-round pick coming in at no. 138.
With that pick coming in at no. 65, the Bills go with an interior offensive lineman, addressing a major need.
There is no word on whether or not the Bills will actually opt to cut starting center Mitch Morse, but in doing so they could save over $5 million, which would help Buffalo get back under the cap — something they would need to work toward if they landed Derrick Henry, especially.
Wypler comes in as a lineman who could play either guard or center, and comes from a great program in Ohio State. It’s typically not a bad idea to draft an offensive lineman from the Buckeyes, and Wypler is able to step in right away and start at either center or guard. This could be the Rodger Saffold replacement Buffalo is looking for, or he could step in for Morse.
Either way, the Bills are in good shape after landing a starter up front. Wypler is a smart player who is quick off the line, and also gets to his zone blocks quickly. He would be a phenomenal fit, especially after Buffalo landed Henry.
