On the latest episode of the Billieve Podcast, host John Boccacino and co-host Jamie D’Amico get you ready for the upcoming 2020 NFL Draft, the first time the league’s draft will be held virtually.

Boccacino and D’Amico play the role of Buffalo Bills general managers and give their thoughts for who general manager Brandon Beane should draft with picks 54 and 86 (while emphasizing which positions the teams should address, and which ones they should avoid with their first two picks). We’re making you listen to the podcast to find out our picks, but for those inquiring minds, here’s a hint: we like adding to both the offensive and defensive line in the second and third rounds. Among the prospects discussed: Terrell Lewis LB (Virginia Tech), Trevon Diggs DB (Alabama), Bryce Hall CB (Virginia), Jaylon Johnson DB (Utah), Ezra Cleveland OL (Boise State), Jonathan Greenard LB (Florida), John Simpson OL (Clemson), J.K. Dobbins, RB (Ohio State), Jonathan Taylor RB (Wisconsin) and more.

We also lay out our vision for the ideal draft for the Bills, which for us means adding a developmental edge rusher, bringing in more competition at cornerback, addressing the offensive line, and drafting a running back...though not in the first three rounds.

We speculate on which team(s) will endure embarrassing technology issues during the draft (looking at you, Cleveland Browns and Cincinnati Bengals!), explore how the trust Buffalo’s front office has established impacts fan confidence in the team’s ability to draft the right players, discuss how active Beane will be with his wheeling and dealing, and much more.
