I could live with that!

And Lamical reminds me of a friend's medication whose name used to amuse me for some reason, "Lamictal"!   :beer:

As the preeminant fan of names on here, I would like him if for that alone.  (They spelled his last name wrong, though lol)

Here's some trivia you may not be aware of: Lamical is a cousin of your boy, Myles Jack.

The NFL has released the list of underclassmen that have been granted early entry to the 2020 NFL Draft, ushering in the official start to Mock Draft season! With 93 days until Round 1 kicks off in Las Vegas, here's my first look at how the first 32 picks of the 2020 draft class could play out.

NOTE: The final draft order may change depending on the outcome of Super Bowl LIV.

 

PICK

1

CIN.png

Joe Burrow - QB

 

 

School: LSU | Year: Senior (RS)

Burrow doesn't have elite arm strength, but he checks every other box, and he's a beautiful fit in the Bengals' offense.

 

 

PICK

2

WAS.png

Chase Young - Edge

 

 

School: Ohio State | Year: Junior

The Redskins already have some talented pieces on the defensive line, but Young is a once-in-a-decade talent.

 

 

PICK

3

DET.png

Jeff Okudah - CB

 

 

School: Ohio State | Year: Junior

Detroit could easily auction off this slot to those teams in search of a quarterback. If the Lions stick and pick, Okudah would provide a much-needed upgrade in their secondary.

 

 

PICK

4

NYG.png

Mekhi Becton - OT

 

 

School: Louisville | Year: Junior

Dave Gettleman loves big, physical football players, and they don't get any bigger than Becton (listed at 6-foot-7, 369 pounds). He is a mauler in the run game, and he's shockingly nimble in pass protection.

 

 

PICK

5

MIA.png

Tua Tagovailoa - QB

 

 

School: Alabama | Year: Junior

Tua does come with durability concerns, but it's a risk worth taking for the QB-starved Dolphins. He can sit behind Ryan Fitzpatrick for a season while he recovers from hip surgery.

 

 

PICK

6

LAC.png

Jedrick Wills - OT

 

 

School: Alabama | Year: Junior

The Chargers are in the QB market, but they also have a desperate need to upgrade the OL. Wills is a rock-solid player, and he'll start from Day 1 at right tackle for the Bolts.

 

 

PICK

7

CAR.png

Derrick Brown - DT

 

 

School: Auburn | Year: Senior

Matt Rhule will be given the time to build this team the right way, and that starts with upgrading in the trenches. Brown is one of the top three or four talents in this draft class.

 

 

PICK

8

ARI.png

Tristan Wirfs - OG

 

 

School: Iowa | Year: Junior

The Cardinals need to protect their investment in Kyler Murray. Some believe Wirfs will stay at tackle in the NFL, but I see him as an All-Pro-caliber guard at the next level.

 

 

PICK

9

JAC.png

Isaiah Simmons - S

 

 

School: Clemson | Year: Junior (RS)

Pairing Simmons with last year's first-round pick, Josh Allen, will give the Jaguars two elite defensive athletes to build around. He can play linebacker or safety.

 

 

PICK

10

CLE.png

Andrew Thomas - OT

 

 

School: Georgia | Year: Junior

The Browns must upgrade their offensive tackle situation. Thomas has some areas for improvement, but he'll be too tempting to pass up.

 

 

PICK

11

NYJ.png

K'Lavon Chaisson - Edge

 

 

School: LSU | Year: Sophomore (RS)

General manager Joe Douglas is desperate to upgrade the OL, but in this scenario, the run at the position has already taken place. Chaisson is an outstanding athlete and would fit smoothly into the Jets' scheme.

 

 

PICK

12

OAK.png

CeeDee Lamb - WR

 

 

School: Oklahoma | Year: Junior

The Raiders need more playmakers. I believe Lamb is the best receiver in this draft class.

 

 

PICK

13

IND.png

Jordan Love - QB

 

 

School: Utah State | Year: Junior (RS)

The Colts haven't publicly committed to Jacoby Brissett as their starter in 2020, and Love is simply too intriguing to pass up. He might need to sit for a year, but the payoff could be huge.

 

 

PICK

14

TB.png

Justin Herbert - QB

 

 

School: Oregon | Year: Senior

Teams are all over the map on Herbert. However, he does fit the profile for Bruce Arians -- he's big, strong and smart.

 

 

PICK

15

DEN.png

Jerry Jeudy - WR

 

 

School: Alabama | Year: Junior

Jeudy would give the Broncos one of the most exciting collections of young skill-position players in the league. Adding him to a group that already includes Drew Lock, Courtland Sutton, Noah Fant and Phillip Lindsay would strike fear into opposing defensive coordinators.

 

 

PICK

16

ATL.png

A.J. Epenesa - Edge

 

 

School: Iowa | Year: Junior

The Falcons have tried and failed to land a consistently productive edge rusher. Epenesa doesn't have the highest ceiling, but I believe he'll be a dependable 8-to-10-sack performer at the next level.

 

 

PICK

17

DAL.png

Xavier McKinney - S

 

 

School: Alabama | Year: Junior

McKinney is the best safety in the draft, and he addresses a glaring need for the Cowboys.

 

 

PICK

18

MIA.png

D'Andre Swift - RB

 

 

School: Georgia | Year: Junior

Swift is a special player and would team with Tua to create some excitement in Miami.

 

 

PICK

19

OAK.png

Patrick Queen - LB

 

 

School: LSU | Year: Junior

The Raiders need to get faster and more dynamic on defense. Queen plays sideline to sideline, and he's outstanding in coverage.

 

 

PICK

20

JAC.png

C.J. Henderson - CB

 

 

School: Florida | Year: Junior

The Jaguars have a need at cornerback, and Henderson is widely viewed as the second-best player at the position in this draft class.

 

 

PICK

21

PHI.png

Henry Ruggs III - WR

 

 

School: Alabama | Year: Junior

Speed! The Eagles are focused on getting faster this offseason, and Ruggs is the most explosive player in the draft.

 

 

PICK

22

BUF.png

Tee Higgins - WR

 

 

School: Clemson | Year: Junior

The Bills need to add a big-bodied playmaker. Higgins is a jump-ball specialist.

 

 

PICK

23

NE.png

Grant Delpit - S

 

 

School: LSU | Year: Junior

The Patriots could look at an offensive lineman here (see: Michigan center Cesar Ruiz), but they need to add some youth and athleticism at the safety position, as well.

 

 

PICK

24

NO.png

Justin Jefferson - WR

 

 

School: LSU | Year: Junior

Jefferson is very precise as a route runner, and I love his toughness. He'll fit perfectly next to Michael Thomas.

 

 

PICK

25

MIN.png

Javon Kinlaw - DT

 

 

School: South Carolina | Year: Senior

I have Kinlaw rated very high, and this would be too much value to pass up at this spot. He is a physical freak.

 

 

PICK

26

MIA.png

Austin Jackson - OT

 

 

School: USC | Year: Junior

The Dolphins' offensive overhaul continues with a very athletic offensive tackle. Jackson is only 20 years old, and he has tremendous upside.

 

 

PICK

27

SEA.png

Ross Blacklock - DT

 

 

School: TCU | Year: Junior (RS)

Blacklock is one of my favorite prospects in the class. He's a much better player than former teammate L.J. Collier, whom the Seahawks selected in the first round last year.

 

 

PICK

28

BAL.png

Kenneth Murray - LB

 

 

School: Oklahoma | Year: Junior

The Ravens love shopping at Oklahoma. Murray is a dynamic athlete, and Baltimore needs an upgrade at the linebacker position.

 

 

PICK

29

TEN.png

Marlon Davidson - Edge

 

 

School: Auburn | Year: Senior

Davidson has inside/outside versatility, and he plays extremely hard. He would join Jeffery Simmons to give the Titans two young building blocks up front.

 

 

PICK

30

GB.png

Laviska Shenault - WR

 

 

School: Colorado | Year: Junior

The Packers don't pick WRs in the first round, but Shenault is more than just a receiver. He can line up in the backfield and move around the formation to create mismatches in Green Bay's favor.

 

 

PICK

31

KC.png

Zack Baun - Edge

 

 

School: Wisconsin | Year: Senior (RS)

Baun can play on the edge or off the ball. His athletic ability and versatility would fit well in Steve Spagnuolo's defense.

 

 

PICK

32

SF.png

A.J. Terrell - CB

 

 

School: Clemson | Year: Junior

Terrell had a rough game vs. LSU in the national championship, but the rest of his tape is very good. He has size, length and instincts.

Oh lord.  We move up to pick Sammy Watkins Deux LOL

PS I do think Jerry Jeudy is projected to be better than Sammy Watkins.   But I don't want to move up to get Jeudy, that will cost at least next year's first.  Jeudy is going high.

I realistically don't think Beane will trade up for Jeudy.

IMO Jeudy is a better route runner than Watkins was coming out of Clemson.

Jeudy should go in the top 10 or top 15 at the worst.


L*t is a loser

Free agency will determine our ultimate direction.

I could see us going WR or DE with our 1st.

Buffalo Bills: Three round mock draft before the Combine

 
by Casey Reed4 hours ago
 

Round One, Pick 22

Offensive fire power should be a priority to help Josh Allen grow in 2020, adding a receiver as talented as Tee Higgins is something the Bills desperately need. Tee Higgins is a 6’4′ receiver out of Clemson who can easily high point the ball and win one on one battles and his length is evident in situations where the ball isn’t accurately placed.

While Higgins 40-yard dash wasn’t great coming out of high school at 4.75 seconds, he plays faster on the field and the hope is he will improve on that number at the Combine and Clemson’s Pro Day. Tee Higgins ended 2019 with 1,167 yards, 13 touchdowns and a catch percentage of 73.8%. With the multitude of drops that plagued all the Bills offensive weapons that 73.8% will be a welcomed sight.

Higgins has also been known to be used in jet sweeps and in the 2019 Championship game he rushed for 36 yards and found the endzone. Brian Daboll will be able to scheme up a lot of plays for a top-tier player like Tee Higgins.

Tee Higgins is the perfect player to pair with Josh Allen, just like the Carolina Panthers did with Cam Newton, by adding a lengthy and tall receiver like Kelvin Benjamin to help cover up an accuracy issue will help move the ball down field. Pushing the offensive efficiency up with Tee Higgins will help push the Bills over the hump while creating a safety blanket for the young quarterback in Allen.

 

Round Two, Pick 54

Not many defensive ends falling down to the Bills, but they might get lucky and add more offensive firepower. Young and electric running back Devin Singletary could use a complementary counterpart and the Bills are lucky enough to have one fall right into their laps at 54 in J.K. Dobbins.

J.K. Dobbins is a smooth runner who proved in 2019 that he can be a cowbell and pound the rock. Dobbins is a three down runner and even with having a RB like Singletary, if Dobbins is sitting there at 54 the Bills should not hesitate to add him. Dobbins has excellent vision which honestly might be one of his best traits next to consistently being able to get to the second level and out running the secondary.

Dobbins is a home run hitter as a runner who can also dominate in short yardage situations. Swapping out potential Hall of Famer in Frank Gore for Dobbins on third and short could spell success for a Bills team needing a jolt on offense.

The concern for the Ohio State back is his pass protection and watching any Buckeye game it is clear that Dobbins struggled to consistently pick up the free rusher. This is a skill that the coaching staff can work with him on as he gains more experience in the league.

 

Round Three, Pick 86

With the Bills focusing on offense with the first two picks, a great defender falls to them in the third. Bradlee Anae is like a cage dog ready to get out. Every snap, every play, he’s relentless at the point of attack. Coaches say all the time that you can’t teach effort and Anae is overflowing with it.

Anae ended his junior year with a stat line of 41 total tackles, 13 sacks and one forced fumble. Anae proved at the Reese’s Senior Bowl that he wasn’t just a product of the PAC 12, having had a stand out performance in front of scouts and coaches alike notching 3 sacks. Anae might have had such an impact performance that he might not be there at pick 86.

Meanwhile the fit makes sense and the Buffalo Bills have already shown some interest in the defensive end and met with him during the Senior Bowl.

Anae’s biggest flaw might be his reach, and he can get bullied by longer tackles. That being said a mixture of different pass rushing moves along with his motor and instinct could counteract his weakness.

I wouldn't be a fan of Dobbins in the 2nd round.    Rather sign a Devonta Freeman in free agency and use the 2nd round pick on another position.

I like Bradlee Anae as a 3rd round pick.   Good value, IF we haven't taken an edge guy in the 1st round.

Not a fan of going WR in the 1st.   Rather get either the EDGE rusher from LSU or the one from Penn State and then come back and get a WR in the 2nd round.


Sign TE Greg Olsen, DE Mathew Judon, DT Vernon Butler, WR Devin Funchess      Late Rd pick RB Javon Leake, Maryland

I had a feeling this particular mock wouldn't be a favorite of everyone, but I know SeanDelevan might get on his knees and thank the heavens for something like this.  :)  (I'm not sure if he reads this thread though).  

I knew you weren't a fan of taking a WR in the first, but have you recently replaced OT with DE as a preference?

If I could get a stud OT in the 1st, I would do it.

Although I am starting to think Beane won't go OT high in the draft.   He drafted Cody Ford and at the moment still has Ty.   His pride might cause him to try to go with Ty-Cody at RT in 2020.   If so, EDGE becomes a high priority.   Between Trent Murphy's lackluster play, and Shaq Lawson's average play and Hughes starting to age, a first round EDGE guy would be a welcome piece.

From a bot thread that otherwise would likely go comepletely ignored if I hadn't replied to it, I am archivng this with the rest.  Again, this is one SeanDelevan would really enjoy, and possibly give a body part for, as he'sstarted sentences with before.   :)

 

 

The Bills GM has never been afraid to trade up in the draft

Many fans of the Buffalo Bills, myself included, have enjoyed the work done by general manager Brandon Beane since he joined the team. The club has made the playoffs in two of the three years with Beane at the helm, and his aggressive style during the NFL Draft has shown that he is not afraid to make a trade for a player he covets.

In his two drafts with the Bills, Beane has made four trades—moving up to select the player he wants each time. Just in case you forgot, here are the four trades:

- Traded picks 12, 53, and 56 to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers for pick number 7 (Josh Allen)

- Traded picks 22 and 65 to the Baltimore Ravens for picks 16 (Tremaine Edmunds) and pick 154 (Siran Neal).

- Traded picks 40 and 158 to the Oakland Raiders for pick 38 (Cody Ford).

- Traded picks 112 and 131 to the Washington Redskins for pick 96 (Dawson Knox).

Now that you are all caught up, it is time to discuss the trade up scenario for this week’s mock draft. As discussed in this week’s episode of Breaking Buffalo Rumblings, the free-agent crop of wide receivers leaves a bit to be desired. The draft is going to be important for the Bills to find a starter opposite John Brown, and Beane may need to get aggressive to get his man.

The Las Vegas Raiders (pick 19), the Jacksonville Jaguars (20), and the Philadelphia Eagles (21) own the three selections before the Bills in the first round. Since all three of these teams have needs at receiver, the Bills will need to move up if they do not want to settle for a player that falls to them. For the sake of this discussion, the Tremaine Edmunds trade serves as the benchmark for this trade.

Buffalo receives pick 17 from the Dallas Cowboys

Dallas receives picks 22, 86, and 149 from the Buffalo Bills

This mock draft was once again conducted using the mock draft simulator from The Draft Network.


First Round - Pick 17 - Henry Ruggs III - WR, Alabama

Ruggs may very well be the most dynamic playmaker in the 2020 NFL Draft. He has incredible speed, can make contested catches, and has the ability to make an impact from day one. While I realize the 2020 draft is deep at receiver, one could argue that Ruggs is worth the modest price it would cost to move up.

Second Round - Pick 54 - Jeff Gladney - CB, TCU

The selection of Gladney in the second round could give the Bills an immediate upgrade at cornerback. The Bills have been able to get by with Levi Wallace opposite of Tre White, but I would not be surprised if they drafted a cornerback early. Gladney also has incredible speed and the potential to be a number one corner.

Fourth Round - Pick 118 - Anthony McFarland Jr. - RB, Maryland

Another mock draft, and another running back to complement Devin Singletary. McFarland is considered a speed back, and would be a nice change-of-pace option for Buffalo. McFarland could make an impact in his rookie season as a fourth-round pick.

Fifth Round - Pick 137 - Michael Pittman Jr. - WR, USC

I was a bit surprised to see Pittman available at pick 137, but was happy to take him as a depth receiver. A strong showing in the 40 at the scouting combine would push the 6’3” receiver up draft boards, but for now he adds an element of size to the Buffalo receiving corps.

Personally I think if Ruggs drops past 16 I would trade up to get him.  I think Ruggs, Shinault or Higgens will be there at 22....question is which guy would have the biggest impact on our offense.  Allen is kind of like Mahomes in having a strong arm.  Ruggs would be close to the fastest guy in the NFL.  He is an inch taller than the speedster in KC.  I would be happy with any of the three...but I think Ruggs would be a special player that would make the biggest difference.  Someone that fast....have to double cover him, and play off him...as he will blow by defensive backs.  Basically always open.  He has good hands too.  I would trade our 1st and 3rd rounder this year to move up 6 or 7 spots....maybe throw in a 6th to get it done.

Buffalo Bills three-round 2020 mock draft compilation 2.0 – Mid-February

The Buffalo Bills proved their skeptics wrong in 2019. They finished 10-6 and earned a playoff birth leading to the picking 22nd in the upcoming draft.

 

Now through the NFL draft in April, Empire Writes Back will compile data from various mock drafts. Rather than our readers chase across the internet for who the Buffalo Bills will pick, EWB gives you the consensus.

 

Now that the Super Bowl is over, we will do this semi-monthly. The sources may change a bit from article to article, but they are credible. This month we used 24 different mock drafts from sources such as CBS Sports, NBC Sports, NFL.com, ESPN – Todd McShay, USA Today Draftwire, Newsday, Tankathon, The Sporting News, The Athletic, San Diego Tribune, Pro Football Focus, Sports Illustrated, Draftsite.com, and Walter Football.

2019 was a pleasant surprise for the Buffalo Bills. They rebounded from a dismal 6-10 record in the previous season to finish 10-6 and capture an AFC Wildcard slot. This is shaping up to be a good draft for Buffalo to get help in the positions where they need it even though they pick 22nd. The question is where do the Buffalo Bills need help the most?

A strong defense which held opponents to 298.2 yards (third-best in the NFL) and a miserly second-fewest 16.2 points per game led the way for the Buffalo Bills. Even so, they could have done a better job putting heat on opposing quarterbacks. Buffalo sacked QB’s 44 times (12th). No Bills player had double-digit sacks, Jordan Phillips led the way with 9.5 and only one other player had more than five (Shaq Lawson, 6.5).

Last year’s third-round pick Devin Singletary made an unexpected impact while sharing the running back job with future Hall-of-Famer Frank Gore. The rookie picked up 5.1 yards-per-carry totaling 775 yards.

 

Quarterback Josh Allen stepped up in his sophomore season, improving in every passing stat. Part of that had to do with the arrival of wideouts John Brown and Cole Beasley. Still another big-play receiver could really open up the offense.

Even without a high pick, Bills GM Brandon Beane can make big significant improvements to an already good team.

 

 

Round 1, 22nd overall pick

There isn’t as much urgency for a receiver this time around. In January, 80 percent of the mock drafts we used had Buffalo taking a wideout. Now that’s down to 60 percent. It seems as if the idea of going with an edge rusher is picking up steam. The man gaining momentum is Yetur Gross-Matos from Penn State. Here are the players selected most often:

Laviska Shenault Jr., WR, Colorado – 6

Tee Higgins, WR, Clemson – 6

Yetur Gross-Matos, Edge, Penn State – 4

There is a tie at the top between Shenault and Higgins. Both are big, strong, and highly skilled wide receivers either of which would be a boost to the offense. While Brown and Beasley are very good, neither of them possesses the physicality of either the projected incoming wideouts.

The 6-foot-4 Higgins can make guys miss with his strength and will come down with anything thrown near him. He averaged a hair shy of 20 yards per catch this past season for the Tigers. – Todd McShay, ESPN

The third Big Ten DE expected to come off the board, Gross-Matos was an impact player for the Nittany Lions. He’s been a big riser up the mock drafts over the past few weeks. That can be confirmed at the scouting combine which begins on February 23. At 6-5, 265-pounds, he has the size and length scouts love at the end of the line. He is also hard to handle at the point of attack in obvious passing situations. Last season the defensive end picked up eight sacks.

Other players that showed up on the mocks are all defensive edge players: K’Lavon Chaisson, Edge, LSU; AJ Epanesa, Edge, Iowa; Kristian Fulton, CB, LSU; Xavier McKinney, S, Alabama; Jalen Reagor, WR, Texas Christian; Denzel Mims, WR, Baylor; D’Andre Swift, RB, Georgia; CJ Henderson, CB, Florida.

 

 

Round 2, 54th overall

There isn’t as much information about the following rounds. The deeper a mock draft goes the more of a guessing game it becomes. Different writers may have great internal sources, but there are so many variables in play that it makes predictions very difficult.

Needless to say with all the could happen in the 32 selections between the Buffalo Bills first and second-round picks, a consensus is nearly impossible. Of the eight mocks that go into the second round, no two are the same. There are three defensive backs, two edge rushers, two offensive linemen, and a wide receiver.

Among those appearing in the mocks are Michael Pittman Jr., WR, USC; Ashtyn Davis, S, California; Darnay Holmes, CB, UCLA; Jeff Gladney, CB, Texas Christian; Khalid Kareem, Edge, Notre Dame; Marlon Davidson, Edge, Auburn, Ezra Cleveland, T, Boise State; Shane Lemieux, G, Oregon.

If the Bills don’t take a wide receiver in round one, Pittman could be a good second-round pickup. He doesn’t create the kind of separation teams like in a receiver, but his size (6-4, 220-pounds) and physicality make him a tough matchup for would-be defenders.

Round 3, 86th overall

There are some deep positions in this draft, offensive line among them. Logan Stenberg, a big guard (6-6, 320-pounds) from Kentucky could be available with the 86th pick. He would be a player who Buffalo Bills running backs could run behind for big yards up the middle.

Another player mentioned is safety Kyle Dugger from Lenior-Rhyne University, an NCAA Division II school in Hickory, North Carolina. Depending on who is doing the analysis, Dugger is somewhere between an early-second and late-third round. NFL.com even called him a “super sleeper.”

Other players who appeared in the lastest mock drafts include Yasir Durant, T, Missouri; Eno Benjamin, RB, Arizona State; Amik Robertson, CB, Louisiana Tech; Jauan Jennings, WR, Tennessee; Antonio Gandy-Golden, WR, Liberty.

WIDE RECEIVER

Round 3, 86th overall   

Eno Benjamin, RB, Arizona State 

I am starting to see a number of mock drafts saying Tee Higgins doesn't get drafted until the 2nd round.

I think the Bills would like to draft K’Lavon Chaisson, Edge, LSU in the 1st round, but he will probably be gone.  Personally I would be happy with OT Mekhi Beckton.  We need to keep improving and fortifying the OLine.

Wide Receiver in the 2nd (or 3rd round).

In case you were just going to read the name and then take off,  you may found the part I highlighted at the bottom about the WR situation in this mock of interest.  Not sure how likely it is in real life.

The Buffalo Bills address their pass rush with Penn State’s Yetur Gross-Matos in CBS Sports’ latest mock ahead of the 2020 NFL Draft.

Depending on the next month leading up to free agency, the Bills could absolutely use a pass rusher like Gross-Matos from their first pick at No. 22 overall.

Here’s why the Bills went that route per CBS Sports’ mock via Tom Fornelli:

I’m a big fan of Gross-Matos and had him going in the top 10 in my original mock. That might have been a bit optimistic. Still, he strikes me as a player who will impress during the combine and workouts, and he strikes me as a player Buffalo will like a lot.

While offense is certainly a popular pick for the Bills in Round 1, pass rusher is close behind. If the Bills do land Gross-Matos, they could take a guy that many draft analysts consider as one of the more underrated edge defenders in the 2020 draft pool. Gross-Matos is praised as a high-motor athlete, but concerns are over his frame. He is 6-foot-5 and 260-plus pounds, but adding more will help him. In 11 games played in 2019, he had nine sacks and 40 tackles, including 14.5 for loss. In 2018, Gross Matos had 20 for loss along with eight sacks.

In Gross-Matos the Bills land the fourth edge defender off the board in this mock draft, but depending on the way the Bills attack free agency, he could make plenty of sense. Not only could the Bills lose Shaq Lawson, they could stand to use more production overall from the position. Lawson led the Bills’ defensive end group with 6.5 sacks last season. That’s not good enough.

Worth noting based on the way things currently sit for the Bills, wide receiver is certainly in play with the way CBS Sports’ mock falls. Only two wideouts, CeeDee Lamb and Jerry Jeudy, are selected ahead of the Bills’ pick. In many mock drafts, up to to five are picked before Buffalo’s selection. That’d be a prime situation for the Bills to get a top-talent playmaker on offense.

A guy who stopped trending our way for a few days or so makes a return, and discusses the concerns some may harbor.

The Buffalo Bills are clear contenders for a wide receiver at the 2020 NFL Draft. But the way things currently sit, Laviska Shenault is a curious option for the team.

Recent reports said Shenault has been dealing with a pubic bone injury. Could that cause his draft stock to drop out of the first round? That report also came with a note that the inflammation injury won’t require any surgery either, so there’s some good news.

USA Today apparently has decided it won’t cost Shenault a first-round value, because he’s the Bills’ pick in their latest 2020 mock draft released this week:

22. Bills — Laviska Shenault Jr., WR, Colorado: Dynamic and powerful after the catch, Shenault checks off a lot of boxes for Josh Allen and Buffalo’s offense.

Maybe most importantly, Shenault checks the size box for the Bills, too. Tee Higgins, who goes No. 21 overall to the Eagles right before Buffalo’s pick, lists at 6-foot-4. While Shenault is at 6-foot-2, he still plays big and has a knack for making players miss. According to Pro Football Focus, Shenault led college receivers with 46 missed tackle over the past two seasons.

While the Bills’ needs could change via free agency which comes before the draft, a youthful wideout prospect will likely remain. Since Zay Jones skipped town, the Bills have few young prospects to grow along with quarterback Josh Allen. In free agency, another vet with John Brown and Cole Beasley would be valuable, but a long-term answer needs to be addressed, too.
