Round 6, Pick #204-CB Nehemiah Pritchett, Auburn

With the track record of Brandon Beane drafting cornerbacks in the later rounds in the past few years, it makes sense that he would draft one here. Even though the Bills have Christian Benford and Rasul Douglas as their starters, with Kaiir Elam and Ja'Marcus Ingram as depth players, there is a need for some more depth in this cornerback room.

If there is one thing that Sean McDermott is known for, it is his coaching of the defensive back room and how much he gets from these late-round prospects. That is why Pritchett is a player who could excel on this team.

Round 7, Pick #248-OT Frank Crum, Wyoming

What could be said about McDermott coaching up defensive backs can be said for Aaron Kromer for the offensive line on the Bills. Unfortunately with some of the other positions of needs taking precedence over the offensive line prospects, this was where I had to take it. Frank Crum is an interesting prospect, being he is 6'8" and posted a RAS score of 9.86 out of a possible 10.

In terms of size and athleticism, he is pretty similar to Spencer Brown, who is playing on the last year of his rookie deal in 2024. Crum could be used for competition for Brown, or at the very least cheap depth behind Brown.

Round 7, Pick #249-OC Nick Gargiulo, South Carolina

With the release of Mitch Morse and the trade of Ryan Bates, the Bills are left with some issues at depth on the offensive interior, especially center. The Bills will most likely leave from the later rounds with more depth in the interior, and Nick Gargiulo can help.

Again, Aaron Kromer is one of the best offensive line coaches in the entire NFL, so I can imagine he can mold a prospect like Gargiulo very well. Along with this, the Bills are also adding more valuable depth on a rookie contract.
