2022 Buffalo Bills Draft Review Grade

by steve

Before the long boring offseason starts lets review the Bills 2022 NFL Draft performance. 

First, the picks:
Round 1. 23 Kaiir Elam CB Florida 
Round 2. 63 James Cook RB Georgia 
Round 3. 89 Terrel Bernard LB Baylor 
Round 5. 148 Khalil Shakir WR Boise State
Round 6. 180 Matt Araiza P SD State
Round 6. 185 Christian Benford CB Villanova 
Round 6. 209 Luke Tenuta OT Va Tech
Round 7. 231 Baylon Spector LB Clemson

Brandon Beane did a bit of everything in the draft. They traded up in the first, they traded back twice in the second and even drafted a punter with the first pick of the 6th round.

Somewhat surprisingly they drafted 8 players, 3 on offense, 4 on defense and the punt god.

Allegedly the receiver is a steal, the 3rd round LB is a tweener that seems to fit McDerr's style and the second corner might move to safety. Out of my 7 Bills needs heading into the draft, Beaner took 5 of the 7 I wanted.

The runningback Cook has pedigree and seems to be a playmaker in the passing game. Plus he wasnt a first round pick. Actually the Bills got multiple extra picks moving back twice and still got him. He seems like he will complement Singletary and Moss. I like it even if he only averaged 8 touches a game last year. 

Elam fills a big need if he can start. The punter is a punter. Not sure about Shakir. He seems to be a gadget guy that will replace McKenzie eventually but isnt a big outside guy.

I wanted a big splash and to dump Tremaine Edmunds. Didnt happen. Beane didnt trade any big picks from future years and got a bunch of bodies. Not bad

Grade:
B-

1st Round Pick Buffalo Bills Kaiir Elam CB

Bills used a 4th to move up 2 spots to take 20 year old cornerback Elam.

Grade C+

Dont love it but dont hate it.  Fills a need.

2022 NFL Draft Predictions

by steve

Prediction time! The first round of the NFL Draft is mere hours away so lets print our predictions:

First here is our 4 man mock draft and Bills needs posts from earlier in this week and the mock draft round up review.

The Bills wont take a cornerback in the first round. Beane knows McDerr can find a CB anywhere. Look who started for them the last few years, 7th round Dan Jackson, Levi undrafted Wallace, UB Cam Lewis etc. Part of this is because Tre White is on the opposite side and part of it seems to be that McDerr can actually coach up a secondary. 

Despite me wanting Beaneboy to package Tremaine Edmunds and make a move up for a stud WR there will be no big move today. They arent taking a runningback Thursday either.

Other rando predictions:
Skyy Moore isnt going in the first round.
Ditto for big boy George Pickens.
No quarterback will be drafted top 10 and only 2 go day 1. 
No runningbacks 
Under 6.5 wide receivers get drafted round 1.
The Jets fuck up the draft but get a high draft grade.
Ditto for the Giants.
The panthers and Lions also fuck up bad. Although, if they don't like a QB they shouldn't just take one to take one. But does anyone trust anyone at either of those organizations? No.

Who are the Bills going to draft PREDICTIONS:
Steve: Daxton Hill safety Michigan 
Dubs: Kaiir Elam corner Florida
Coast: Breece Hall RB Iowa State
Wreck: Christian Watson WR SD State
Sano: Skyy Moore WR Western Mich


my druthers:
Go wide Receiver why not. Get weapons score points. I can live w a RB but dont love it.  Safety over corner, no oline first 2 days, or.. MAKE A SPLASH. Trade Edmunds and move up or just grade him and find a LB Friday.

Best bet is move back to early 2nd round, get Breece Hall and use the extra pick(s) to move up and get a WR somewhere early, then linebacker w an edmunds trade.

2022 Buffalo Bills Mock Draft Review

by Steve

Lets take a look at what the supposed paid professionals are picking for the Buffalo Bills in the 2022 NFL Draft. 

Here is our 4 man mock draft and Bills needs posts from earlier in the week.

Dan Jermiah nfl.com
Breece Hall
I can't find another prospect capable of having a bigger impact for the Bills at this selection. Hall would be a nightmare for opposing defenses.
Grade C+



Peter Screager NFL network
Breece Hall RB Iowa St
I'm told Buffalo is going either running back or defensive back with this pick. Comped to Matt Forte, Hall is the choice.

Shockingly I am warming up to the idea of a RB. If this dude is a stud for four years and makes the offense better I can live with it. Is it wise? Is it a good value? Obviously not. Can a RB in any round be as good and a tenth of the price ? Sure. But Hall has a lot of boxes checked to aid the offense in a real way. Not picking up his 5th year option though hurts. Best bet is to trade back to early 2nd and hope hes there.
Grade C+

Andrew Booth
We know the Bills wanted Eric Stokes last year, but the Packers snatched him off the board. Cornerback hasn't been addressed since, so I expect that to be the pick here unless all viable options aren't available once again. The Bills need players who can defend all the great quarterbacks in the AFC, after all.

Starting a pattern of all corners jeez.
Grade C-

Mike Florio PFT

25. Bills: Trent McDuffie, cornerback, Washington.

They need help in the secondary, especially with Tre'Davious White returning from a torn ACL.

Uninspired 

Grade: C



Dan Kelly The Ringer
Kaiir Elam
The Bills really don’t have any glaring needs but if they want to get over the hump in the AFC, taking an excellent cover corner here in Elam shouldn’t hurt. He’d pair nicely with Tre’Davious White to give Buffalo more talent in the back end.
Corner is a need but cant McDerr find one anywhere?
Grade C+

Jay Skurski TBN

Andrew Booth, CB, Clemson. In the end, the most logical position ends up being the pick for General Manager Brandon Beane. It’s hard to ignore the need in the Bills’ secondary, especially with the uncertainty around when Tre’Davious White will be ready to play coming off a knee injury. Booth was a second-team All-Atlantic Coast Conference selection in 2021 after finishing with 37 tackles, three interceptions and five passes defensed in 11 starts.

The final line of Booth’s nfl.com scouting report neatly summarizes why he makes sense for the Bills: “He needs to play more football, but his ball-hawking instincts, burst to close and toughness in run support will be very appealing for zone teams looking for an upgrade at cornerback.”

That sounds like a prospect who will fit in nicely to Sean McDermott's defense.

Didn't want to post this PAB's mock since he blocked us but i will any way. Booth a reach at 25
Grade D+
