3.) Drafting RB Ray Davis over RB Braelon Allen

The Bills decided to draft a running back in Ray Davis from Kentucky to pair with James Cook. While it was a good move to address the running back position, the Bills may have picked the wrong running back. Davis played college football at Temple and Vanderbilt before ending up at the University of Kentucky. While he had a great season with the Wildcats, Davis is not the kind of running back that the Bills needed to pair with Cook.

Instead, the Bills should have taken a better look at Wisconsin running back Braelon Allen who was drafted by the New York Jets. Coming from a pro-style offense in Wisconsin, Allen was playing like he was already in the NFL. He stands at 6 '1" and 235 lbs and brings a physicality that would have been perfect for the cold weather up in Buffalo. Allen came up 16 yards shy of three consecutive 1,000+ rushing yard seasons with the Badgers. Allen would have been a fantastic fit for in-between the tackles in crucial run moments.

The Bills will now face the duo of Allen and Breece Hall when they take on the Jets in the future.

2.) Not signing/drafting more cornerback help

One of the tough decisions that Brandon Beane made this offseason was releasing cornerback Tre’Davious White, who is now with the Los Angeles Rams. As of right now, the Bills are set to go into the season with Rasul Douglas and Christian Benford as the starting cornerbacks. Buffalo also re-signed Cam Lewis and extended Taron Johnson’s contract. In the NFL Draft, Beane would draft just one cornerback in the sixth round in Daequan Hardy from Penn State. 

The Bills are a little weak on the outside of the secondary and it is surprising that they did not sign or draft more cornerbacks. It would have been a great pickup if they were able to sign someone like Jeff Okudah who signed with the Houston Texans instead. Kaiir Elam has an uphill battle seeing as how he has struggled in his first two years with the Bills. Overall, the Bills should have addressed the cornerback spot more than they have.
