Entering the 2022 season, the Buffalo Bills seemed to be on the cusp of winning a Super Bowl. However, after the way the year ended, there are serious questions about the roster and with limited cap space the best way to improve the roster will be in the 2023 NFL Draft.
They have eight draft picks in the upcoming NFL Draft starting with 27th overall in the first round. The focus for this mock draft, run on Pro Football Focus, was to improve the offensive line while also finding players who address specific needs on both sides of the ball.
2023 NFL Mock Draft: Buffalo Bills 7-round mock draft after Senior Bowl
With the first pick in this 2023 NFL mock draft, the Buffalo Bills bring in competition for Spencer Brown at right tackle by selecting Dawand Jones out of Ohio State. The hope last season was that Brown, who was a third round pick in the 2021 NFL Draft, would continue to improve off a promising rookie season.
However, Brown didn’t get to have much of an offseason due to his recovery from back surgery and that seemed to limit his performance during the year.
After the Senior Bowl, it seems a little optimistic that Dawand Jones would be available this late in the first round but if he is there then he should absolutely be the Buffalo Bills’ pick. He is a big offensive tackle, which is what the Bills have drafted over the years, at 6’8″ and 375 pounds with an incredible 89.5″ wingspan.
This would be a great addition to the Buffalo Bills trying to overhaul their offensive line and bring in competition at a key position.
