The 2021 NFL Draft is only ten months away, following the beginning of the 2020 offseason, and the Buffalo Bills already find themselves with more than the average number of draft selections. The Bills remain in possession of eight total selections in the 2021 draft.
Buffalo traded away their original fourth-round selection to Minnesota as a part of the Stefon Diggs trade, but what partially makes up for that is the Bills’ trade of Zay Jones to the Las Vegas Raiders for an extra fifth-round selection. In addition, the team also may be able to count on a seventh-round conditional selection resulting from the trade of Marshall Newhouse to the Carolina Panthers. It’s unknown at this time if those conditions have been met. Also, if history is anything to go by, we can expect a few trades taking place around training camp, as that’s when general manager Brandon Beane seems to shop players around.
With that necessary caveat, below is the complete list of 2021 draft picks as they currently stand:
