2019 NFL Draft: Rejuvenating the right tackle position for the Buffalo Bills

2019 NFL Draft: Rejuvenating the right tackle position for the Buffalo Bills

Where in the draft should Buffalo be looking for it’s franchise right tackle Despite the Buffalo Bills deciding to move on from offensive-line coach Juan Castillo, the team shouldn’t expect improvement along the offensive line until they accrue more talented players. With all due respect to Jordan Mills, his play in the 2018 season was average at best and, quite honestly, Buffalo should have been looking for an upgrade much earlier than this offseason. Luckily, this year’s draft appears to have several viable options throughout. While there will certainly be franchise players...

Jonah Williams falls to Bills in latest SB Nation Mock

Jonah Williams falls to Bills in latest SB Nation Mock

SB Nation’s Dan Kadar has the Bills taking advantage of teams looking to trade up for quarterbacks At this time of the offseason, as the dust continues to settle and free agency starts to ramp up, there appears to be more than a handful of teams that will be looking for their next quarterback in the 2019 NFL Draft, both inside and outside of the top ten picks. What that means for a team like the Buffalo Bills, is that they can either attempt to use their fortuitous position to trade down, or simply scoop up the talent that gets pushed down by those teams hell-bent on taking a quarterback....

Bills Mock Draft Watch, February 11th edition

Who have other sites been mocking to Buffalo? We’re already more than a month into the Buffalo Bills’ offseason and a consensus seems to be building among the members of the media on what positions the team will be targeting during the first round of the draft. With the team ostensibly in possession of a franchise quarterback, analysts predict the team attempting to draft him some help. Here’s who the experts have the Buffalo Bills eyeing when on they’re on the clock with the ninth overall pick in the 2019 NFL Draft: Todd McShay, ESPN: OT Jawaan Taylor (Florida) “The Bills need to...

2019 NFL Draft: Looking for the next Kyle Williams

2019 NFL Draft: Looking for the next Kyle Williams

It’s a deep tackle class, but when will the Bills pull the trigger? In the aftermath of Kyle Williams’s retirement following the 2018 season, it’s up to the Buffalo Bills front office to decide how best to replace the team’s long-time defensive tackle. With the 2019 NFL Draft seeming to offer a plethora of options at the position, they may come to the conclusion that drafting a rookie offers the best path forward in that regard. If so, here are some of the players general manager Brandon Beane and coach Sean McDermott will be evaluating this spring. Tier I Quinnen Williams...

Bills re-form lines in SB Nation’s latest 2019 mock draft

SB Nation’s Dan Kadar has the Bills targeting the trenches in 2019 Now that the final chapter of the 2018 football season has closed and the 2019 NFL Draft order is mostly set—with the exception of supplemental picks—SB Nation’s draft guru Dan Kadar has thrust a two-round mock draft upon us. In it, Kadar has the Buffalo Bills and general manager Brandon Beane deciding to strengthen the team’s trenches with the combination of a pass rushing defensive tackle in the first round and a dominant run-blocking guard in the second. 9.

2019 NFL Draft: Finding cornerback depth

2019 NFL Draft: Finding cornerback depth

This year’s corner class offers something for everyone After the Buffalo Bills starting cornerback Vontae Davis walked out on the team in Week 2, and his replacement Phillip Gaines proved ineffective, the team was in bad straights. They were forced to turn to undrafted free agent Levi Wallace out of sheer desperation. But Wallace ended up playing very well in his first game against the New York Jets, and the rookie seemed to gain confidence every week. However, it would be unwise for general manager Brandon Beane to assume that Wallace is the answer at cornerback. At the very least, Bills...

Bills leadership team big believers in drafting seniors

Bills leadership team big believers in drafting seniors

Brandon Beane and Sean McDermott appreciate mature leadership Down at the Senior Bowl in Mobile, Alabama, Buffalo Bills general manager Brandon Beane took the time to talk about the draft philosophy he and head coach Sean McDermott employ—specifically, their preference for experienced college players. In an interview transcribed by newyorkupstate.com, Buffalo’s general manager talked about drafting six seniors last season, all Senior Bowl participants. “I do think you find guys that have been through their senior year and weren’t always touted as the five-star recruit (or) the blue...

2019 NFL Draft: Drafting the next Jerry Hughes

2019 NFL Draft: Drafting the next Jerry Hughes

It’s a deep class at edge rusher, especially at the top Branch Rickey coined the following saying regarding baseball, although it is just as applicable to the sport of football: “Trade a player a year too early rather than a year too late.” Preparing to move on from a player, even if he’s playing well, is something all general managers should be prepared to do. Careers don’t last long, especially in football. While Jerry Hughes is an effective pass-rushing threat for the Buffalo Bills, he’ll be 31 years old next season and hasn’t had a double-digit sack campaign since 2014....

2019 NFL Draft: Moving on from Charles Clay

2019 NFL Draft: Moving on from Charles Clay

This is a good year to consider drafting a tight end. Charles Clay may be one of the best tight ends to ever wear a Buffalo Bills uniform, but that’s not really saying much as the team has never had a strong history of tight ends outside of Pete Metzelaars. Still, Clay brought stability to the position for several years, and endured quarterback and scheme changes along the way. However, in the 2018 season, Clay’s production and effectiveness cratered. The eighth-year player caught only 21 passes for a career-low 184 yards. Releasing Clay during the 2019 offseason would net the team...

2019 NFL Draft: Five Senior Bowl Winners

2019 NFL Draft: Five Senior Bowl Winners

Buffalo would be wise to consider these five Senior Bowl standouts The Senior Bowl game took place on Saturday and, although the quarterbacks weren’t as exciting or as impressive as last year’s, the players in the trenches made the game worth watching. The South got on the board first, but the North came roaring back when former Duke quarterback Daniel Jones entered the game. The South got back on the board thanks to UB’s Tyree Jackson, but it came too late. The five players listed below not only contributed to their team’s performance, but by doing so aided their own draft stock...

2019 NFL Draft: Replacing Vlad Ducasse

2019 NFL Draft: Replacing Vlad Ducasse

The Bills will surely be looking for an more pieces at guard in the draft After being declared the starter following training camp and playing the first nine games of the season, Buffalo Bills left guard Vlad Ducasse was unceremoniously relegated to the bench after losing his spot to rookie fifth-rounder Wyatt Teller. In the final year of his three-year contract with the team, it’s likely that general manager Brandon Beane chooses to move on from the nine-year veteran. If so, the team may look to Teller to fully replace him, or they could look towards the draft in search of an upgrade;...

2019 NFL Draft: Upgrading at center

He’s the prospects worth evaluating if the team looks to move on from last year’s free agent acquisition. After longtime center Eric Wood’s sudden retirement, Buffalo Bills brass were clearly in a tough spot at the position heading into 2018 season. They soon settled on having a competition between in-house option Ryan Groy and free agent signee Russell Bodine. It was a competition that Groy won almost by default, as neither player really played well enough to earn the starting gig. After two games of dreadful play, the coaches decided to switch to Bodine, who at least brought some...

2019 NFL Draft: Shrine Game Winners

These players improved their draft stock this past Saturday in St. Petersburg, Florida The East-West Shrine game took place on Saturday and ended up being a much more exciting affair than last year, particularly on the scoreboard. The West jumped out to a 21-point lead, and was able to hold off the East long enough to win 21-17. Several players boosted their stock, including a couple pass rushers and some former Georgia Bulldogs. WR Terry Godwin (Georgia) Godwin proved that he was a cut above every other receiver in the game, from an athletic standpoint but also technically. Running from...

Traditionally, both games are for second-, third-day and future undrafted NFL prospects, looking to add a bit of momentum before the combine.
