For me, it’s simple.  The Buffalo Bills are a Super Bowl-caliber team, right now.  This is a team that won 14 games a season ago and I know, some of those wins didn’t look good.  I watched them all, not just the wins but the losses too and I could climb up on my optimistic soapbox, but I’ll refrain….for now.

I decided to run through one more mock draft, not to say we here at BuffaLowDown won’t put together another shortly before the draft but for me, this is my final draft and what I believe could happen in the 2023 NFL Draft; however, a trade up or back could drastically change how the draft plays out for the Bills.

I previously wrote an article about the possibility of the Bills trading back and who they could target in such a move.  While I believe a trade back is more likely than a trade up, for the purposes of this mock, I chose to keep the current picks as is, with no trades involved.

The Bills have added a few new additions since my last mock and we’ve received news that Damar Hamlin has received full clearance to pursue his desire to make a comeback, so what does this mean for the safety room?  Do the Bills still draft another safety to go with a relatively crowded defensive backfield already?

What about the linebacking corps, do the Bills need to address this position early in the draft or pursue more weapons and protection for Josh Allen?
