NFL Draft grades are fun to check out, but they mean very little. We won't truly know how good, or bad, a draft class is until two or three years later. However, that doesn't mean fans, myself included, don't enjoy reading through these grades, so we decided to compile a few of them together. Of course, there will be more coming out over the next few days, but a lot of them are already starting to come out. Let's take a look at some of them.

Buffalo Bills 2024 NFL Draft grades

Pro Football Focus: B-
PFF provided a few interesting nuggets about each prospect. For example, Van-Pran allowed only one sack on over 1,400 pass-block attempts. They also seemed high on the Bills' fifth round selection, Javon Solomon. He made PFF's top-100 prospects and since 2021, he's recorded 32 sacks, ranking him number one among edge defenders in the draft.

Bleacher Report: B
Bleacher Report has high praise for Keon Coleman, calling him a number-one caliber receiver. They also see the Bills as the AFC East favorites and this draft had a lot to do with that assessment.

Chad Rueter ( B+
This is one of the few B+ grades I've seen awarded to the Bills. Rueter went on to say "Buffalo found the potential big-play receiver it needed after trading down twice in Round One".

USA Today: B
You can check out their full analysis of the Bills draft here, but one thing that stuck out to me, was the apparent dislike for second-round selection Cole Bishop, stating "Cole Bishop is unlikely to make anyone forget Jordan Poyer or Micah Hyde."

CBS Sports: B
For the most part, the draft analysts have been consistent with the B grades all around. One thing I found interesting about CBS Sports is their thoughts on the selection of Cole Bishop, saying "Buffalo then countered with a stellar selection -- Bishop in Round 2. He's going to be a star with Sean McDermott." That's a far cry from USA Today's opinion.
