Circling the Wagons: PFF’s Cam Mellor discusses Bills draft needs, trade partners and “boom or bust” prospects

Pro Football Focus’ insight on the Bills and the Draft

In this episode of Circling the Wagons, we talk to Cam Mellor (@PFF_Cam), Senior Content Manager for Pro Football Focus who also oversees all social media accounts (including the @PFF_Bills account) about why he liked the Buffalo Bills’ offensive additions in free agency—especially John Brown, Cole Beasley and Frank Gore.

Then we discuss the Bills biggest positional needs headed into the 2019 NFL Draft including the controversial topic of “elite” tight ends and “elite” wide receivers. We then switch the discussion into the NFL Draft and to those teams drafting after the Bills that have a need at quarterback that may try to trade up for the number 9 pick. Cam also discusses his article about the “Top 5 Boom or Bust Prospects in this year’s Draft” and we go over the three players who are constantly mocked to the Bills as of late; Mississippi State DE Montez Sweat, Michigan DE Rashan Gary, and Ole Miss WR D.K. Metcalf. We also discuss where PFF grades come from, the amount of data points on a given play, and do they take into account poor coaching or poor play calling? Go Bills!

Additional topics/players discussed include: Wins Above Replacement (WAR), the need for CB over WR, Tyler Kroft, Rob Gronkowski, Zach Ertz & Rob Gronkowski, Zay Jones, Dwayne Haskins, Denver Broncos, Washington Redskins, New York Giants, NFL Combine, John Ross, Myles Garrett, Zac Robinson, Football Analytics, Money Ball, Quinton Spain, 2020 salary cap space.
