In a little over a week away from the NFL Draft and the general consensus is that the Buffalo Bills are going to draft a wide receiver in the first round. It certainly makes sense when considering the team has already lost Stefon Diggs and Gabe Davis.

While general manager Brandon Beane could draft a wide receiver in the first round for the first time with the Buffalo Bills, he isn't completely ignoring the other positions. There are other needs that the Bills may want to address and while wide receiver is pressing, the Bills could still end up drafting best player available with their first-round pick.

When considering some of the other roster needs, these are some players who are not wide receivers that the Bills could consider in the opening round of the 2024 NFL Draft.

4 non-WR prospects who could help Bills dominate 2024 NFL Draft's first round

Graham Barton

The Buffalo Bills had one of their best offensive lines last season in recent memory but unfortunately had to make significant changes due to salary cap issues. The team would release starting center Mitch Morse before free agency and moved Connor McGovern to center.

However, this is likely far from being set in stone and it would make sense for the Bills to add a top tier interior offensive lineman that gives them flexibility heading into training camp. Graham Barton out of Duke fits that description as he is a versatile player that could start almost immediately at either center or guard.

One thing that stands out is his Relative Athletic Score, and almost all the Bills draft picks over the years have high RAS. Well, Barton has one of the highest ever for guards at 9.99 which ranks third out of 1,532 guards.
