In less than 24 hours, the NFL Draft will be underway in Nashville, and the Bills have themselves in position to go a variety of ways in the first round on Thursday.
As of now, the team holds the 9th overall pick.
General Manager Brandon Beane and company have shown willingness in the past to be aggressive with trades. A draft analyst in the Music City says he hears the Bills are prime candidates to move down later in the draft and add more picks.
NFL Network’s Daniel Jeremiah also sees the Bills in a prime spot to add offensive lineman like Jonah Williams out of Alabama, while others like the possibility of adding a playmaker for young quarterback Josh Allen.
“Maybe one of those big offensive linemen can still fall down there,” said Jeremiah. “If that doesn't happen, I wouldn't sleep on a tight end potentially going in there and give Josh Allen another weapon to play with. You can always look in the secondary as well, so they've got a lot of different places they can go.”
“I keep coming to T.J. Hockenson. He feels like Buffalo,” said Fox Sports Analyst Joel Klatt. “He's good at everything; he creates space and what we he could do is allow Josh to get better where I think Josh might be a little weaker.”
The Bills have not drafted a tight end in the first round since 1983 but that could change come Thursday.
So who will it be? A tight end, an offensive lineman or, a defensive lineman — maybe even a wide receiver. That’s part of the fun in this year’s draft. It’s just so tough to predict from the Bills perspective.
