It has been a busy week at One Bills Drive for the Buffalo Bills, as Daryl Williams and Matt Milano have re-signed with the team. There have been a flurry of moves by general manager Brandon Beane, which allows us to shake things up with a new seven-round mock draft.
I made two trades this week, with the details listed below. This mock draft comes courtesy of the draft simulator available at The Draft Network. Take a look at these latest selections and be sure to share your thoughts in the comments section.
Pick 32 - Creed Humphrey OL Oklahoma
The Bills trade picks 30 and 211 to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers for picks 32 and 95
Humphrey gives the Bills a likely plug-and-play starter at guard, and the eventual replacement for Mitch Morse as the Bills’ starting center. Humphrey oozes “process” and should be an option for the Bills even if they decide not to trade down.
Pick 61 - Joe Tryon EDGE Washington
The more I watch Tryon, the more I grow to like him as an option for the Bills. He might need to add a little weight to his 6’4” frame, but has the tools needed to be an effective defensive end. Tryon also plays special teams, which could be bad news for Darryl Johnson.
Pick 93 - Alim McNeil DT NC State
McNeil has the size and athleticism to fill a void for the Bills at defensive tackle. He is an effective run stuffer, and his athleticism allows him to develop as a pass rusher. The Bills need more effective depth at the one technique as Harrison Phillips enters the final year of his rookie deal.
Pick 95 - Trill Williams CB Syracuse
This is the pick acquired from Tampa Bay, as the Bills look to upgrade at CB2. Williams brings size and athleticism to the position, something that has been lacking in recent years. He could challenge to be a day-one starter in Buffalo.
Pick 136 - Trey Sermon RB Ohio State
The Bills trade picks 161 and 234 to the Kansas City Chiefs for pick 136.
While I have toyed with drafting a back much earlier in these mocks, a player like Sermon has the potential you love to find in round four. He is more of an early-down back, but becomes an option to replace the RB3 spot left by T.J. Yeldon. Sermon could push Devin Singletary to a third-down role for the Bills.
Pick 174 - Marlon Williams WR UCF
The former college teammate of Gabriel Davis brings size (6’0”, 222 lbs) to the Bills’ receiving corps, as competition with Duke Williams, Jake Kumerow, and Isaiah Hodgins. Williams could make the Bills’ roster in 2021 as WR6.
