The Buffalo Bills are up again in the 2018 SB Nation Writers Mock Draft

New, comments

21 picks are in. Who should we take?

The first 21 picks of the 2018 SB Nation NFL Writers Mock Draft have been made and the Buffalo Bills are on the clock. At pick 12, the Bills took Wyoming quarterback Josh Allen. With that need filled, Buffalo must address other major holes on their roster at linebacker, cornerback, offensive line, and wide receiver.

Here is who is off the board so far:

2018 SB Nation NFL Writers’ Mock Draft

  1. Cleveland Browns: Sam Darnold, QB, USC
  2. New York Giants: Bradley Chubb, DE, NC State
  3. New York Jets (via Indianapolis Colts): Josh Rosen, QB, UCLA
  4. Cleveland Browns (via Houston Texans): Saquon Barkley, RB, Penn State
  5. Denver Broncos: Baker Mayfield, QB, Oklahoma
  6. Indianapolis Colts (via New York Jets): Quenton Nelson, OG, Notre Dame
  7. Tampa Bay Buccaneers: Derwin James, S, Florida State
  8. Chicago Bears: Tremaine Edmunds, LB, Virginia Tech
  9. San Francisco 49ers: Minkah Fitzpatrick, S, Alabama
  10. Oakland Raiders: Maurice Hurst, DT, Michigan
  11. Miami Dolphins: Roquan Smith, LB, Georgia
  12. Buffalo Bills: Josh Allen, QB, Wyoming
  13. Washington: Vita Vea, DT, Washington
  14. Green Bay Packers: Denzel Ward, CB, Ohio State
  15. Arizona Cardinals: Harold Landry, DE, Boston College
  16. Baltimore Ravens: Calvin Ridley, WR, Alabama
  17. Los Angeles Chargers: Isaiah Wynn, OL, Georgia
  18. Seattle Seahawks: Lamar Jackson, QB, Louisville
  19. Dallas Cowboys: Da’Ron Payne, DT, Alabama
  20. Detroit Lions: Marcus Davenport, ER, UTSA
  21. Cincinnati Bengals: Billy Price, OC, Ohio State

Off the board is Calvin Ridley, the top wide receiver prospect so Cortland Sutton from MSU is a possibility here as is Christian Kirk from Texas A&M. D.J. Moore of Maryland enters the conversation because he’s a pre-draft visitor. Even James Washington could come into the mix out of Oklahoma State.

Buffalo could look to solidify the offensive line with tackle Mike McGlinchy (Notre Dame) or Connor Williams (Texas).

On defense, linebacker Boise State’s Leighton Vander Esch is someone who could come in and play all the snaps his rookie season. Both Roquan Smith and Tremaine Edwards were off the board by Buffalo’s first pick but no other linebackers have been taken. Vender Esch and Alabama’s Rashaan Evans are both possibilities.

Defensive tackle Taven Bryan (Florida) is another possibility if the Bills want to work on their defensive tackle rotation.

We have already submitted out pick, but what do YOU think we should do?
