Scouting Report: TE Noah Fant a potential target for the Bills

What’s everyone saying about former Iowa Hawkeye tight end, Noah Fant The 2019 NFL Draft is nearly here and perhaps you’d like to get to know a bit more about some possible targets of the Buffalo Bills. While the addition of Tyler Kroft this offseason helps the tight end room, the near consensus is that Buffalo would be wise to add a playmaker at the position. Let’s take a minute and see what everyone is saying about former Iowa Hawkeyes tight end, Noah Fant. Noah Fant has declared for the NFL Draft as a junior, which might have taken him off the Buffalo Bills’ board a couple...

What would a Buffalo Bills trade up with the New York Jets cost?

What would a Buffalo Bills trade up with the New York Jets cost?

If the Bills want a stud DT, they may need to trade up. The New York Jets are “determined” to trade down in the 2019 NFL Draft, according to Ralph Vacchiano of SNY. The Jets used their 2nd round pick in 2019 as part of the package to move up and select Sam Darnold in 2018. With only one pick in the top 67 selections, it makes a ton of sense for the Jets to move down and snag a couple picks in the process as the rebuild with head coach Adam Gase and need to address the turnover. But for the Bills to move up that high to take a generational defensive player like Nick Bosa, Josh Allen, Ed...

Cody Ford film analysis: A road grader and a team player

Cody Ford film analysis: A road grader and a team player

Ford might have the strongest grip in this rookie class. Offensive tackle might be the strongest position group in the 2019 NFL Draft. For the Buffalo Bills, we’ve already profiled Jonah Williams and Jawaan Taylor as potential upgrades to their offensive line. Today let’s look at Oklahoma Sooners right tackle Cody Ford. What does he do well? What can he improve? Let’s dive into the film. Cody Ford is an absolute mauler. He has incredible paw power. If he latches onto a dude with his hands, he’ll pull them apart like a grizzly bear. Once his hands are on a defender in pass...

D.K. Metcalf scheme fit is specific, for now

D.K. Metcalf scheme fit is specific, for now

Metcalf doesn’t have a complete route tree, but he has physical tools you can’t teach. The Buffalo Bills have added wide receivers this offseason. For a while, it seemed like they would also be very interested in Ole Miss wide receiver D.K. Metcalf. After his (partly) stellar Combine performance, he was frequently mocked to the Bills at nine overall. But Metcalf wasn’t asked to be a complete receiver in college. His scheme fit, for now, is limited. His physical traits are only part of the equation (and are discussed in-depth here). Let’s dive into the rest. Team fit Metcalf...

Scouting Report: Rashan Gary is a massive question mark

Scouting Report: Rashan Gary is a massive question mark

Where is the Michigan defensive lineman going to end up? The Buffalo Bills have the makings of a solid defense for the upcoming 2019 season. A star-studded secondary of Tre’Davious White, Micah Hyde, and Jordan Poyer return for the Bills, but the defensive line needs work. With veteran defensive tackle Kyle Williams officially retired, Buffalo may look to boost its overall quarterback-pressure system. Former Michigan defensive end Rashan Gary could be the fountain of youth the Bills turn to, but his potential for professional success is a massive question mark. Gary, the former No. 1...

Jawaan Taylor film analysis: Florida tackle’s strength and athleticism shines through

Jawaan Taylor film analysis: Florida tackle’s strength and athleticism shines through

Is he the best tackle in the draft? The Buffalo Bills had one of the worst offensive lines in the NFL last year, and Jawaan Taylor might be a cure. While the team now has Ty Nsekhe and LaAdrian Waddle where Jordan Mills and Conor McDermott were the options last year, neither player is signed for more than two years, and Buffalo’s desire for a “best five players” on the offensive line might lead them to look at the dominant right tackle from Florida. Welcome to the film room, where today we’re talking about Taylor’s strengths and weaknesses. Let’s begin with the need-to-know for...

Jawaan Taylor scouting report: personal history, background

Jawaan Taylor scouting report: personal history, background

Taylor has been dependable and tough throughout his career As we get closer and closer to the 2019 NFL Draft, it’s worth looking at some of the prospects the Buffalo Bills may be picking in less than a week. As we approach the big night, we take a look at the background of former Florida Gators offensive lineman Jawaan Taylor, an offensive tackle expected to be taken within the first fifteen picks of the draft. In 2016, Taylor was the only freshman to play on Florida’s offensive line. He started every game that season and was a part of the Freshman All-SEC team. Durability was again...

2019 late-round targets who are just as good as early-round prospects

2019 late-round targets who are just as good as early-round prospects

These lower-round draft picks can fill the same roles as these more highly touted prospects. One of the frustrating aspects of being a fan of the NFL Draft is that popular analysis is fixated on the draft’s first round. The first round is significant, for obvious reasons, but prospects drafted in rounds two through seven make up the bulk of a team’s draft class and, ultimately, determine if that class was wise or a complete bust. In the hopes of shedding a bit of necessary light on some those lower-round prospects, I wanted to talk about those players who can fill similar niches to some...

Can the Bills trade with the Raiders for a generational talent?

Can the Bills trade with the Raiders for a generational talent?

Oakland has three first round picks, but could they want more capital? The Oakland Raiders have been a little bit all over the place since Jon Gruden took over as their coach and de facto power broker. With the addition of general manager Mike Mayock, the trend has continued. Oakland traded defensive superstar Khalil Mack and wide receiver Amari Cooper plus they acquired Antonio Brown, swinging trades with draft choices left and right. Now Oakland stands with three first-round draft picks (and four in the top 35). In the middle of their rebuild, could they want even more picks? What would a...
