We start off our podcast by assessing the job general manager Brandon Beane did in drafting in 2020. Given the fact that Buffalo didn’t have a first-round pick (thanks to the Stefon Diggs trade), Bills fans have to be happy with the fact that the Bills wound up with physical defensive end A.J. Epenesa with their first pick (no. 54 overall). Epenesa is a gifted talent who was projected to go to the Bills with the No. 22 overall pick back at the beginning of the offseason.
Both Boccacino and D’Amico think Epenesa was an outstanding value pick. While our podcasters think Beane nailed the majority of his picks while shoring up the team’s needs and not reaching in the draft, D’Amico thought that Beane selected several players above where they should have been drafted.
We highlight the picks we love (highlighted by Epenesa, running back Zack Moss, wide receiver Gabriel Davis and quarterback Jake Fromm), and those we’re less than enthused by (led by kicker Tyler Bass). Our two-person jury is also split on wide receiver Isaiah Hodgins and Dane Jackson.
