SI.com draft grades

3

One of the more balanced, albeit brief assessments of our draft... Buffalo Bills A gambler’s draft. The Bills traded the No. 9 pick and two 2015 selections (first- and fourth-round) to Cleveland so they could nab WR Sammy Watkins, then traded Stevie Johnson away to San Francisco. That’s all after they traded earlier for ex-Bucs WR Mike Williams. Oh, and they sent Philadelphia a draft choice for RB Bryce Brown. But for all that, their biggest risks came along an offensive line that needed some help. OTs Cyrus Kouandjio and Seantrel Henderson and G Cyril Richardson all are rolls of the dice. Safer selections came in Rounds 3 and 4, with solid LB Preston Brown and CB Ross Cockrell, respectively. At least one sure thing on the O-line would have been nice, given how Buffalo sacrificed to make itself a contender in 2014. Grade: B
