The 2017 Buffalo Bills NFL Draft Guide has landed

New, comments

178 pages, 69,000 words, 283 scouting reports. Bills-centric analysis.

The NFL Draft is two days away. Are you looking for an awesome information source? Wondering who the Bills might be drafting this weekend? The type of person who wants to Google those random players with the funny names drafted in the sixth round?

Today, I’d like to present to you my NFL Draft guide, which will give you all of the data you need to answer the questions above. It’s the perfect resource for a draft geek or Bills fan to read through leading into this weekend.

NFL Draft guide cover page

This guide features 283 individual scouting reports, covering every non-specialist position in the draft. I have information about injury history and athletic outliers, notes taken from my film watching, and positional rankings.

Sample scouting report

This guide also features my analysis of the Buffalo Bills draft plan. Each year I narrow down the massive draft pool to a smaller group of 50-70 players based on Buffalo’s scouting and draft tendencies. Roughly 80 to 90 percent of players drafted by Buffalo will fit this criteria. If you want to know who the team will target, this is the best resource available.

Pre draft connections

If you were wondering about my past work, I’ve included some notes about my scouting process as well as an analysis of hits and misses from drafts in the last five years.
