Mocking The Bills: You make the call on Buffalo’s pick at 61 (poll)

The readers get to weigh in with their selection in round 2

NCAA Football: Purdue at Minnesota Jesse Johnson-USA TODAY Sports

Mock draft season is full effect, that includes Buffalo Bills fans as they get to make the call in round 2. If you happened to miss last week’s edition of Mocking The Bills, let me bring you up speed.

Of the 2,085 readers that voted in the poll, linebacker Zaven Collins was the overwhelming choice. The Tulsa product received 45 percent of the votes, making him an easy choice over Travis Etienne (18 percent), Alijah Vera-Tucker (18 percent), and Azeez Ojulari (19 percent). Now that our first round selection has been made, it is time to make the choice in round 2.


Brevin Jordan TE Miami

The tight end position has been a popular topic this offseason, as general manager Brandon Beane has addressed it specifically as an area needing improvement. If the Bills want to add competition for Dawson Knox, then Jordan would be a suitable option. An effective blocker, with good hands, who is dangerous after the catch—Jordan could be an upgrade as the starter in Buffalo.

Alex Leatherwood OT Alabama

With question marks remaining around unrestricted free agents Jon Feliciano and Darryl Williams, the Bills will need to address the offensive line in the draft. Leatherwood has position flexibility, with experience at guard and tackle. While he may not be a day-one starter at right tackle, the Bills could eventually ease him into the role as needed.

Ifeatu Melifonwu CB Syracuse

The Bills have gone too long with some makeshift options at cornerback (Josh Norman, EJ Gaines, Kevin Johnson), and could look for an upgrade over Levi Wallace. The Draft Network’s Joe Marino brought Melifonwu to my attention—and I can see why he is drawn to the Syracuse defender. Tall and athletic, I could see Melifonwu’s stock rising leading up to the draft.

Rondale Moore WR Purdue

Medical red flags push Moore to the second round, but when healthy he is a dynamic playmaker. Moore could bring together a mix of different Bills—potentially being a replacement for free agents Isaiah McKenzie and Andre Roberts. Moore would bring “big play” ability to the Bills, and could be an eventual replacement for John Brown.
