Buffalo Bills 2017 NFL Draft order finalized with Mike Gillislee pick

The addition of a 5th round pick from the Patriots finalizes Buffalo’s picks.

The Buffalo Bills have added a new draft pick with the loss of Mike Gillislee. Because he was a restricted free agent, Buffalo receives a 2017 5th round selection from the New England Patriots. It is the 163rd overall selection. With this, Buffalo’s draft order is officially set.

The team’s picks are:

  • Round 1 - 10 overall
  • Round 2 - 44 overall
  • Round 3 - 75 overall
  • Round 5 - 156 overall
  • Round 5 - 163 overall (from New England)
  • Round 5 - 171 overall (from Dallas)
  • Round 6 - 195 overall

Buffalo will be without 4th and 7th round selections thanks to a pair of trades.

The fourth rounder was sent to the Chicago Bears to move up in last year’s draft to select linebacker Reggie Ragland. The seventh round pick was sent to the Dallas Cowboys, along with Matt Cassel, for a fifth round selection two years ago. Chicago will receive the 117th overall selection and the Cowboys the 228th pick.

The Bills could still move down in the first round and acquire more picks in this year’s selection event, something where they’ve been completing their due diligence.
