Many fans of the Buffalo Bills seem to be torn about what the team should do with pick 30 in the 2021 NFL Draft. Cornerback and defensive end seem to be the most popular choice, which is understandable from my perspective.

In this week’s episode of Breaking Buffalo Rumblings, I went through the exercise of doing two mock drafts. In one scenario, I was focused on getting a pass rusher at 30—while the other focused on cornerback. As I admit in the episode, I find myself biased towards taking a pass rusher in the first round. So what would happen if I went against that bias? the two mock results are below:

Scenario 1

Pick 30 - Jayson Oweh EDGE Penn State
Pick 61 - Ifeatu Melifonwu CB Syracuse
Pick 93 - Alim McNeill IDL N.C. State

Scenario 2

Pick 30 - Asante Samuel Jr. CB Florida State
Pick 61 - Joseph Ossai EDGE Texas
Pick 93 - Kendrick Green IOL Illinois
