Audric Estime

The 5’11” and 227 lbs Notre Dame prospect, is hard to bring down and slips through tackles with ease. In true Buffalo Bills fashion, Estime is not afraid to channel his inner Josh Allen and hurdle defenders and piles alike.

He has many of the same on-field strengths as Braelon Allen while being a potential in the passing game. Although he is 3” shorter and 20 lbs lighter, currently projected as an early day 3 pick, he would be a fine addition at Pick 128, but it probably wouldn’t be worth it to trade up.

Ezekiel Elliot

An experienced running back and former #1 option for the Dallas Cowboys, for the second season in a row Elliot has found himself on the open market. Elliott, at 6’0” and 226 lbs, known for his explosive runs and goal-line expertise, would be a savvy addition to the Bills' roster.

Although it is clear he has lost a step in recent years, while with New England behind the Pro Football Network 29th-ranked offense, he was still able to score 3 rushing TDs. All 3 are goal-line scores to boot. If Brandon Beane can bring Elliott on for somewhere around a vet minimum or “Prove It” deal, he should pull the trigger immediately, assuming the draft has already passed.
