The 2024 NFL Draft is officially in the books and the NFL saw a number of players entering the league who could become superstars in short order. The Bills are going to hope players like Keon Coleman, Cole Bishop, and DeWayne Carter fall into that category.

While the Bills should feel good about their draft class, they should also be celebrating the fact that some players didn't end up in their division. They won't have to worry about game planning for these players twice every season as these five players seemed to be realistic options that were either not selected or picked right before their picks.

Jayden Daniels

It seemed to be almost a certainty that the first three picks would be quarterback in the 2024 NFL Draft. There wasn't much suspense about who would be the first overall pick as the Chicago Bears were going to select Caleb Williams.

However, it wasn't as clear what the Washington Commanders might do at number two as they could select either Jayden Daniels or Drake Maye, or even trade out of the spot. In the end, the Bills would select Daniels which is something that fans should celebrate.

Between the two, Daniels appears to not only have the higher ceiling but looks to be the most pro-ready while Maye might need some time to develop. For the Bills, who will be going for their fifth straight AFC East division title any extra time they have will certainly work in their favor.
