The Buffalo Bills are heading into this draft with only a couple holes, those being WR and a RB to compliment Devin Singletary, and you could argue a corner as well opposite Tre White. The team will also be drafting for depth positions through the mid/late rounds as well, those also being OL, Edge, and LB. With that, without any more delay, here is my 2020 Buffalo Bills 7-round mock draft. *No trades*
Round 2: Chase Claypool, WR, Notre Dame. Some say Claypool will move to TE once he gets in the league, while that is true, I like Claypool playing receiver, he gives Buffalo a more versatile approach to the offense while playing see ball get ball with Josh Allen. He had a very good collegiate career, totaling 2,159 yards and 19 TDs in 4 seasons with Notre Dame. Claypool will most likely be an end of the 2nd or 3rd round pick, but I personally like the upside at pick 54.
Round 3: Bryce Hall, CB, Virginia. Hall will have a chance to compete with Josh Norman & Levi Wallace for the outside CB job opposite of Tre White. While missing most of the season, Hall still contributed nicely, totaling 20 tackles, 1 sack, and 4 passes defensed. He will also have a chance to develop under Sean McDermott and Leslie Frazier. while also being groomed by an All-Pro in White. This is a nice upside pick here for Buffalo.
Round 4: Anfernee Jennings, Edge, Alabama. Jennings provides very good talent to the Bills edge position. While raw, Jennings has a chance to develop there in Buffalo while playing key minutes. Buffalo brought in nice Free Agent pass rushers over the past couple of seasons, but nobody for the future. Jennings can provide solid stats for Buffalo in his first year but will have a chance to play a bigger role soon. Jennings totaled 193 tackles & 14.5 sacks in his 4-year career at Alabama.
Round 5: Eno Benjamin, RB, Arizona State. Buffalo needs a RB to compliment Devin Singletary, with just TJ Yeldon and Christian Wade listed as Singletary’s backups right now. Eno totaled 2,867 yards and 27 rushing TDs in his 3-year career at Arizona State. Weighing in at 207 lbs and standing 5’9 inches tall, Eno provides a more physical style of running in the Bills backfield. If Buffalo hits with this pick, they could have possibly found their RB duo for the next multiple years.
Round 6: Antonio Gandy-Golden, WR, Liberty. Yes, another tall receiver. Something the Bills noticeably missed the past couple of seasons. It will be a tough road up to the 53 man active roster for Gandy-Golden, but if he makes it, he will provide another solid weapon on the field for Allen. In 2 years at Liberty, Golden totaled 2,433 yards and 20 TDs for the Flames.
Round 6: Mykal Walker, LB, Fresno State. Something Buffalo sometimes missed last year was LB depth. And they did a good job of bringing players to fix the depth, but I’m not sure they hit it enough. That’s where Walker comes in. If Walker can crack the roster, he will provide Buffalo with some much-needed depth, while also possibly kicking somebody else out of the race for a roster spot. Walker totaled 88 tackles, 6.5 sacks, and 1 TD in 2 years at Fresno State.
Round 7: Cohl Cabral, IOL, Arizona State. Buffalo added to their Interior OL depth recently with the addition of Evan Boehm. That should not take away from Buffalo trying to find more talent at the position. Cabral will at worst be a Practice Squad developmental player for a couple years in Buffalo, but could also fill in at Center primary in case of injury. This pick would just add to the abundance of lineman Buffalo has added this year.
Round 1 of the draft begins on April 23rd.
