On the latest episode of the Billieve Podcast: With the NFL Draft fast approaching, hosts John Boccacino and Jamie D’Amico take their turn at playing the role of Buffalo Bills general manager Brandon Beane.

Boccacino and D’Amico each offer up their three favorite NFL Draft targets for Buffalo to consider selecting at picks No. 30 and No. 61.

For Boccacino, he wants Buffalo to shore up its defense with its first two picks. He has identified CB2 (opposite Tre’Davious White) and edge rusher as his two biggest areas of need with Buffalo’s first-round pick, and proposes drafting either Northwestern cornerback Greg Newsome II, Virginia Tech CB Caleb Farley or Georgia edge rusher Azeez Ojulari.

With pick No. 30, D’Amico discusses reasons for drafting Notre Dame linebacker Jeremiah Owusu-Koramorah, Alabama offensive lineman Landon Dickerson, and Newsome II.

Moving along to the second round, D’Amico and Boccacino are both high on Syracuse CB Ifeatu Melifonwu, while D’Amico pitches taking Penn State tight end Pat Freiermuth or Florida State CB Asante Samuel Jr. Boccacino sticks to his all-defense philosophy with Miami edge rusher Gregory Rousseau, Melifonwu, and Oregon safety Jevon Holland (with an honorable mention for Syracuse safety Andre Cisco).

As a bonus, Boccacino makes the case for bolstering the offensive line by drafting Ohio State’s Wyatt Davis to take over at right guard, while D’Amico advocates for his Buckeyes teammate, center Josh Myers, as the successor for Mitch Morse.
