2016 NFL Draft order, Round 1: Buffalo Bills hold No. 19 pick

New, comments

The Buffalo Bills will pick 19th in the first round of the 2016 NFL Draft. The last time they had a first-round pick, they took wide receiver Sammy Watkins in 2014.

After taking the spring of 2015 off from picking in the first round, the Buffalo Bills return to Round 1 of the 2016 NFL Draft as holders of the No. 19 overall pick.

The Bills were one of three teams in the NFL to finish with an 8-8 record, but they lost out on a strength-of-schedule tiebreaker to the other two 8-8 teams, Atlanta and Indianapolis. That means that both of those teams will pick ahead of them. Only one non-playoff team - the 10-6 New York Jets, who are watching the postseason thanks in large part to two losses to the Bills - will pick behind Buffalo among the 20 teams that aren't playing next weekend and beyond.

Here's the full first-round order for the draft this coming May.
