The “WTFP” staff joined forces for a three round mock of the 2020 NFL Draft. Here are the picks for the Buffalo Bills with analysis for each selection.
The Buffalo Bills are coming into the 2020 NFL Draft with very limited capital. After trading a bevy of draft picks for former Minnesota Vikings wide receiver Stefon Diggs, the Bills only have two picks in the top 100 picks. The Bills made the playoffs in 2019 and have made their off-season about building on what made them successful in 2019.
From Buffalo’s perspective, the AFC East is wide open for the 2020 season and beyond. In Miami, the Dolphins are on the come up, but still rebuilding. The New England Patriots lost multiple starters this off-season, including future Hall of Fame quarterback Tom Brady. Finally, the Jets appear to be stuck in the 6-10 to 9-7 range.
While it may be true that Tom Brady no longer plays for the New England Patriots, it in no way means that Buffalo will stroll to the AFC East crown. Bill Belichick is still the head coach in New England, and the team still has a great offensive line, a good running game, and an elite secondary.
Everything that the Bills have done since the 2018 season ended has been about helping their young quarterback, Josh Allen. Last off-season they completely revamped the offensive line and added weapons such as wide receivers John Brown and Cole Beasley. In the 2019 NFL draft, they added offensive tackle Cody Ford and running back Devin Singletary. This off-season they made a blockbuster trade in the middle of the night to acquire Stefon Diggs.
