2017 NFL Draft Preview: Mock Drafts Review

By Steve

Only a day away, lets run through what the "experts" are predicting for the Bills 2017 draft. Here is part 1 and part 2 of our NFL Draft preview.


The Ringer
WR Mike Williams
Drafting a wide receiver in part does and does not make sense. The Bills dont have a QB so whats the point but they dont have any wide receivers besides brittle Sam Watkins. Plus Watkins will probs be playing for someone else in a few years too. Is Mike Will the best WR in this class though?

CB Marshon Lattimore OSU
Lord knows the Bills wuv Ohio State DBs. Allegedly its a deep draft for corners and the top few might be interchangable. Is 10th the best spot to snag one? Wouldn't hate it although it does make one wonder why they didnt try to keep Gilly a bit more.

Deshawn Watsons
Sitting behind Taylor would be preferable to starting Watson right away but this pick would be a shocker. Why keep Tyrod Taylor at all if you're using your top pick on his obvious replacement? (Especially with needs at nearly every other position). The only explanation is that Watson is the answer and the franchise QB of the future with lottle doubt. Do we trust the Bills braintrust that much?

Walter Football
Marshon Lattimore
Walt calls Lattimore the top CB in the draft class. Hmm. Finally a duplicate though.

ESPN Live Draft
OJ Howard
Im warming up to this idea of taking the best tight end in the draft. He gives an added weapon akin to a wide receiver but seems to fit with the old school offensive philosphy this admin is looking to build. Sign me up.

Pete Prisco
CB Tre'davious White LSU
A new name but similar position. Who the hell knows but in this mock the top two safeties are gone as is Lattimore. The question becomes how does Whaley and co. rank these CBs.

Peter King
DE Derek Barnett Tenn
Despite this old bitch blocking me on twitter I am able to read his dumb blog. This pick would be about as surprising as it gets. Granted you can never have enough good pass rushers but this team, with needs all over the place, cant afford back to back pass rushers in the first round unless Barnett is the top player on McDermott (errr Dougy's) board.

Buffalo News
Mike Williams (13th pick)
Moving back to 13th with Arizona and only getting the 77th pick to allow them to draft a QB would be about as bad a look as it could get. The player they end up with plus an extra pick is real solid but letting the Cards to jump in front of them to snag a QB will get lampooned.

WGR550 (Sal Capaccio)
Haason Reddick OLB Temple
Is this guy a linebacker, a pass rusher, a straight up beast and it doesnt matter or what. Again is this guy the BPA? Because a pass rusher isnt need 1 2 or even 5. Hmm.
