Buffalo Bills Mock Draft Roundup 1.0
Throughout the year and leading up to the 2022 NFL Draft, we will update our Buffalo Bills Mock Draft Roundup showing picks for the Buffalo Bills from several prominent sites and draft analysts.
For a more inclusive lists of mock drafts for the Buffalo Bills, check out our Buffalo Bills Mock Draft Database.
The following are picks in recent mock drafts for the Bills:
EDSFootball - Hanson (5/10)
29. Josh Jobe, CB, Alabama
Buffalo used their first two picks
-- Gregory Rousseau and Carlos Basham -- to improve their pass rush. While the Bills have one of the league's best corners in Tre'Davious White, they could use an upgrade opposite him. Jobe (6-1, 192) is a long and physical corner that had 11 passes defended, 55 tackles, two sacks and two forced fumbles in 2020.
Touchdown Wire - Schofield (5/7)
30. Breece Hall, RB, Iowa State
Running back was a common selection in mock drafts for the Buffalo Bills this past draft cycle, with players like Najee Harris and Travis Etienne serving as the main options. But with both players off the board when the Bills were on the clock last week, the organization went in a different direction and added pass rusher Gregory Rousseau.
Still, the team is looking to be more efficient on the ground, and that could mean they address RB early next draft cycle. Iowa State RB Breece Hall could be an option for the Bills, and he is coming off a huge season. Last year Hall led the nation in rushing yards and 100-yard games, and was named the Big-12 Offensive Player of the Year. He also finished sixth in Heisman Trophy voting. Another huge campaign and Hall will be in the mix for RB1.
PFF - Renner (5/7)
29. Jordan Battle, S, Alabama
Battle made a few spot starts as a true freshman back in 2019 before taking over full-time in 2020. He is a solid all-around safety with ideal size at 6-foot-1, 210 pounds. Battle earned a run-defense grade of 79.1 and a coverage grade of 81.5 last year.
ESPN - McShay (5/6)
30. Josh Jobe, CB, Alabama
Jobe started opposite Pat Surtain II last season and was an effective press-man corner with the ability to reroute receivers at the line of scrimmage. He attacks the ball in the air and broke up 11 passes last season, but he has just one interception over three seasons. After Buffalo took care of the edge rushing group at the draft, it will be able to focus on adding to the secondary next offseason.
San Diego Union Tribune - Brown (5/4)
28. Sevyn Banks, CB, Ohio State
Every starting cornerback for the Buckeyes since 2013 have been drafted -- seven in the first round. Banks has the physical traits and skillset to keep the party going.
The Athletic - Brugler (5/4)
29. John Metchie III, WR, Alabama
Alabama's streak of consecutive drafts with at least two wide receivers taken in the first round will likely end next April. But if Metchie cracks the first round, he will be the sixth Crimson Tide pass catcher to do so since 2014. He finished second on the team in receiving last season, and his 16.7 yards per catch average was better than DeVonta Smith's 15.9.
CBS Sports - Wilson (5/3)
30. Garrett Wilson, WR, Ohio State
Wilson made plays on a weekly basis for the Buckeyes in '20 and it's fair to say that he and Olave are the most dangerous WR tandem heading into the 2021 season.
NBC Edge - Klassen (5/2)
29. Jaxson Kirkland, OT, Washington
Kirkland played left tackle in 2020 (and presumably again in 2021), but he does not necessarily have to play there for the Bills. Kirkland started out as a right guard for Washington, showing great quickness off the snap and decent power at the point of attack. He is also one of the most efficient pass blockers in the country. The Bills could slot Kirkland at guard right away while having the option to flex him out to tackle, in the case of injury or some other circumstance that would benefit from him moving around.
