Buffalo Bills: Senior Bowl practice early updates

The Buffalo Bills will no doubt be keeping an eye on Senior Bowl practices all this week. I've been watching and following along myself and the big thing that has really stood out to me is the play of the wide receivers. The Bills will likely be looking to add some talent to their wide receiver corps and maybe make a splash on Day One with a trade to move up but if not, there will be talent available at pick 28 of the first round when the Bills pick. There will also be wide receiver talent in rounds two and three and from what we've seen at the Senior Bowl, that talent is outstanding.

For example, a few wide receiver names that have cropped up throughout the first couple of days at practice are Florida's Ricky Pearsall, Michigan's Roman Wilson, and Georgia's Ladd McConkey. All three of these guys are projected in the second or third round, NFLDraftBuzz.com. If the Bills decide to move up in round one and grab one of these first-round wideouts, such as Brian Thomas Jr, they could double down and grab one of these guys in the second or third as well, giving the offensive coordinator Joe Brady more weapons to work with and helping keep that Super Bowl window open.

Speaking of team needs for the Bills, a few other names of interest that have popped up this week at the Senior Bowl are edge defenders Chris Braswell from Alabama, Laiatu Latu out of UCLA, and Missouri's Darius Robinson. NFLDraftBuzz.com has Latu as a potential top-ten pick, so it's unlikely he's an option for Buffalo; however, Braswell is projected as a late first-rounder and Robinson is currently projected as a fourth-rounder,

Another name that has drawn a ton of praise early is Toledo cornerback Quinyon Mitchell. He's projected to go early in the second round, so I doubt the Bills will be looking to add another corner to the mix that early but with the way Buffalo struggled with injuries at the position and the uncertainty of Tre'Davious White, I wouldn't really be shocked if Brandon Beane decides to add some depth with a guy that could potentially earn a starting role. This year's draft offers a plethora of talented players at several positions.
