Grading the Buffalo Bills 2019 Draft

By Steve

Another year and another draft where Brandon Beane is confused. Dont get me wrong, the Bills had a solid enough draft but with enough troubling things popping up through out the 3 day NFL Draft I still wonder about his competence.

Sure Ed Oliver fell to the Bills and is likely going to be a solid player. But how much of a difference is a defensive tackle going to make? At best he may one day be as good as Kyle Williams and thus thats a push. Still a solid pick though.

In the second round the Bills traded up two spots using a 5th round pick to draft tackle/guard Cody Ford. If this guy is a starter he is probably worth the extra pick they used but did Beane HAVE to have this specific guy two picks earlier?

Here is where things got very puzzling and questionable at best and concerning at worst. Just a few short weeks ago didnt Brandon Beane try to trade for a top 5 wide receiver? And sign two runningbacks? What changed where one day the Billa NEED  a top flight receiver but now they dont need any weapons?

The Bills draft a 5'7 RB with six catches last year? Devin Singletary might be a decent player but is this guy really going to be a big time contributor on offense? Sure its not likely anyone in the 3rd round would be but what is the max upside of this dude? Wouldnt a WR be a better option?

Then after this odd pick the Bills use teo fourth round picks to again trade up but atleast this time its for a potential weapon in tight end Dawson Knox. Sure he wasnt really used much in college and the Bills yet again traded up but at least this guy could turn into something.

No picks in the fourth. In the fifth sixth and seventh rounds the Bills went linebacker safety linebacker. Oh, no offense? Sweet.

Overall, the Bills likely got two and maybe three starters and thats about it. They only took 8 players despite starting the draft with 10 picks, got none for next year and took zero WRs.

Bills Draft Dawson Knox TE 3rd Round

By Steve

The Bills finally draft a position of need but of course confusingly, confoundingly, idioticslly trade up for the 2nd time today to draft former walk on Tight End Dawson Knox late in the third round.

He had no TD catches last year for Ole Miss but had the intangibles. They gave away both 4th round picks to take him.

Grade C+

Bills Draft Devin Singletary 3rd Round

By Steve

A runningback in the third round? Very surprising.

Devin Singletary 5'9 200 junior

Only had 6 catches last year. Averaged 280 carries per year last 2 seasons.

Puzzling pick


Bills Trade Up Draft Cody Ford 2nd Round

By Steve

Bills traded up 2 spots using a 5th round pick to draft right tackle Cody Ford.

He will be a guard in the NFL.

2019 NFL Draft Grades for the Bills

By Steve

Here is a review of other webites grade of Ed Oliver to the Bills at 9 (i gave it a B-)

This pick makes all kinds of sense. The Bills lost defensive line stalwart Kyle Williams to retirement in December, but get an explosive, dynamic replacement here. The former Houston star has rare athleticism and plays with a low center of gravity, exploding into opposing linemen to quickly establish leverage and put them on their heels. He’s got the speed to shoot gaps and penetrate the pocket and shows extraordinary awareness, consistently chasing plays down from the backside, sniffing out screens, or getting his hands up to knock down throws

Oliver racked up 192 tackles—including 53 for a loss—with 13.5 sacks, five forced fumbles, and 11 pass deflections over three seasons at Houston. Most of that production came while he was lined up at nose tackle, but in the pros, he’ll likely do best as a 3-technique (rushing off the outside shoulder of the guard) or even at the end, where he’ll be more able to tap into that athleticism.

Oliver lacks length and can get overly aggressive at times, but he’s got almost limitless potential as a one-gapping pass rusher in the NFL. I love the player, I love the value, and I love the pick.

It took an unreasonable agent, a reach on a quarterback and a mediocre top-eight pick used on a tight end, but the Bills won the draft. Congrats, Buffalo! Oliver could end up being the best player from this entire class. He's drawn Aaron Donald comparisons for a reason, and he'll be a great replacement for Kyle Williams. Buffalo wanted to trade up for Oliver, yet didn't have to at all. This is an easy A+ grade

Pete Prisco
I thought he was misused at Houston. I think this kid is going to be special at the next level. He is not Aaron Donald, I don't like that comparison. He plays a lot like John Randle and Randle was a Hall of Famer. This kid is going to be a good player for Buffalo. Grade: A

Daniel Jeremiah
That was an easy one for the Buffalo Bills. They were patient and they sat right where they were and he fell into their laps. They need pass-rush help and he'll give that to them from the inside. He's going to be a nightmare for teams to deal with. He's quick, explosive and has great hands.

Sb Nation
The picks of Ferrell and Jones allowed Oliver to drop right into Buffalo’s lap. Oliver can be the Kyle Williams replacement for the Bills, with even more of a pass rush playing three-technique. Even if he’s discount Aaron Donald that is still really, really good. Now the Bills need to focus the rest of their draft surrounding quarterback Josh Allen with talent.

Buffalo Bills Draft Ed Oliver DT

By Steve

The Bills didnt trade as was widely reported and instead stood tough at 9. True, the Broncos at 10 over all traded out smartly because they know how math and odds work but Buffalo's board musta been different.

Instead of getting more players and value and exploiting inefficences the Bills took a defensive tackle to replace Marcell Dareus. Of course Big Daddy was traded for a 5th round pick after getting a $100  mil contract. But hey value?

Just dont wear a raincoat or Oliver will get yelled at. Hey, maybe Eddie boy can be the next Aarron Donald but Id better everything he wont be.

Who needs weapons when you over drafted a project QB and have one of the most talent depleted offenses in an a league where winning is predicated on

Sure Ed Oliver is a good player snd constituted good "value" at 9 but is he what will help the franchise QB the most?

Grade B- (gift)

2019 Bills Draft Preview: Mock Draft Review

by Steve

Im the only one worth reading but let's face it the ass clowns out in the university give entertainment with their awful taeks. Part 1 had us reviewing the Bills needs, part two had NFL draft predictions, now lets review other shit ass mock drafts and grade their ideas:

Walter football
Jawaan Taylor OT Fla
"The Bills must protect Josh Allen, who did not have quality blocking in his rookie campaign. I imagine it would be difficult for them to pass on the top tackle in the 2019 NFL Draft."
No C-

Jonah Williams OT Bame
 Dont want a tackle but solid pick

"9. Bills: Brian Burns, EDGE, FSU.
Here’s a move that could be followed by a trade of Jerry Hughes and his $6.35 million salary to a team that fails to get a pass rusher it covets in round one."

 Haven't heard a lot about his guy but the Bills are desperate for an edge rusher. He better be great.

NFL. com
Jonah Williams
(see above)

"Jawaan Taylor, OT, Florida    
They've done a nice job of adding pieces around Josh Allen this offseason. So why not one more? Taylor would step in and be an immediate starter at right tackle. "

"9.) Buffalo Bills - DL - Christian Wilkins (Clemson)
**NOTE: I think the Bills would prefer to trade down from No. 9 and then take Wilkins later, but I don’t try to project trades in my mock drafts because of how hard it is to determine them. If they stay at No. 9, I still believe Wilkins would be in play and that’s why I still have him here in this mock.**"
Hedge by bitch boy Coach C but this is what I predict.
Grade C

Joe B
" - TE TJ Hockenson, Iowa
- With Ed Oliver off the board early and Jonah Williams getting scooped up by Jacksonville, this pick came down to TJ Hockenson versus Washington State offensive tackle Andre Dillard. If the Bills were to pass on Hockenson in favor of Dillard, the likelihood is that they'd miss out on both Iowa's Noah Fant and Alabama's Irv Smith, Jr. at 40th overall"
Highly unlikely but I would enjoy this pick B

Buffalo Bills 2019 Draft Preview: Predictions

By Steve

Here is part 1 of the Bills draft preview breaking down Buffalo's needs. Lets get to some predictions:

If we have learned anything from Brandon Beane and Sean Mcdermott its that they love defense. McDerr would play defense on offense if he could. For that reason alone I see no chance the Bills draft a wide receiver or tight end at 9 overall.

McDerr just doesnt see the value in doing such a crazy thing when he sees some many interior defensive linemen to covet. TJ Hochenson or even Noah Fant would be a nonstarter for this braintrust. And no way they would consider someone as unworthy as Hollywood Brown or DK Metcalf in the top ten.

McBeaner wants a DT badly. True the ship Marcell Dareus outta here for a bag of stale chips and lost cap space but someone like Ed Oliver wakes these two up at night with wet dreams. Too bad he'll be gone by then, so to will the better Josh Allen and Quinnen Williams.

With Sweat and Gary completely falling out of the first round this will hurt the Bills. No one is pining for any of these quarterbacks that will be available like Lock, Haskins or Jones thus a trade back is highly unlikely. HOPEFULLY these two clowns arent confused enough to do something insane and trade up yet again (then again doesn't McDerr foolishly trade up for all of his players?) but I wouldnt be shocked.

The crystal ball is getting clearer and I see the Bills selection at 9.......

Christian Wilkins DT Clemsom

No chance the Bills brass could pass on a player with the first name Christian and he's only the 3rd or 4th best DT in the draft! But Im sure we'll all get on board until the Bills decline his 5th year option in three and a half years.

Other predictions:
Only one QB goes in the top 9.
The Bills try to trade back into the back end of the first round for an offensive weapon.
Only 1 RB goes day one.
The Raiders do something really stupid.
Everyone hates the Jets pick.
Everyone loves whatever the Patriots do.
Drew Lock goes before Haskins.
Everyone in Nashville gets hammered.

Buffalo Bills 2019 Draft Preview: Needs

By Steve

The only Bills NFL Draft previews you will need are right here. First lets take a look at the Buffalo Bills biggest needs headed into the 2019 draft.

The Bills draft picks:
112, 131
147, 158
225, 228
(There are 254 draft picks)

There arent exactly huge holes all over this roster because McBeaner and co have signed every free agent that bats an eyelash at them. Sure they signed a lot of dudes but are any of them even decent? The linemen were mostly journeymen or reserve players except the center they overpaid. The WRs are just meh and Kroft the tightend is a project at best. Thus the Bills needs are (in order):

Wide Receiver
Joshy poo Allen needs weapons. Cole Beasley, Zay Jones, undrafted Foster and John Brown arent scaring anyone. Who out of that group do you trust on 3rd and 9? Who out of that group are you throwing to in the endzone late in the 4th quarter?

Defensive End
If quarterback is the only position that matters then how do you effect the QBs play? Hitting him and picking him off. The Bills are set in the secondary but the D line is devoid of difference makers. Jerry Hughes is inconsistent, Shaq Lawson is just a body and Yarbrough is nobody. A game effecting edge rusher is a must.

Tight End
Gone is my boy Charles Clay and in is Tyler Kroft? Wtf? He had 4 catches last year and a paltry 67 in a useless 4 year career. Great Tight Ends are matchup nightmares in the NFL. The Bills have never had a great one or even a good one. Sorry Scott Chandler fans. There are  few alleged blue chippers outta Iowa that would look good down the seam at OBD.

Offensive Tackle
The offenive line last year was abysmal. Blame the Wood injury and Beane lowballing Richie, sure, but Dion Dawkins was a turnstyle last year. The bandaid free agents arent a real answer. Going tackle 9 isnt ideal but if they can get the top OT n the board its easier to stomach.

Running Back
TJ Yeldon is a solid signing but a bad sign. Are the Bills really content going into the season with McCoy and Gore two old ass bums toting the rock and Yeldon catching the ball all season? They need to get younger, a lot younger, like 2 decades younger, oof.

Bills 2019 Schedule Worst of All Time?

by Steve

What do people look at first when the NFL schedule comes out? Where is the first game and who is the game again?  What do people look at second?  When is the home opener. What do they look for third?  Prime time games.  The Bills lose in all three categories.

Unbelievably the Bills don't play at home week one or week two and have zero prime time games.  There are 46 prime time games with 92 teams participating.  The Bills are none of those 92 teams.

The best (and likely) only good part of a Bills season is starting at home in Orchard Park.  The Bills don't do that until they are likely 0-2 (they'll be dawgs in both road games) and then come home to play fuckin Cincinnati.  The Bengals are 1b to the Bills 1a of being the most irrelevant over looked useless team in the NFL.  Then they get to lose to the Patriots week 4!

Even if Buffalo wins just one of their first two then the week 3 home opener will be a must win season breaking game because starting out 1-3 and all hope is lost.

Some people are pointing to the Thanksgiving game vs Dallas as a bright spot.  But why is playing a game in the middle of dinner (I actually will have two different family dinners at two different houses scheduled during the 4:30pm game)?  Who wants to watch a Bills game with Aunt Karen and her fuckin loud kids in a cramped hot house?

Even the fun road trips at Pittsburgh and at Cleveland are late in the year when Buffalo will likely already be out of it and the season is over.

Moreover, the Bills have three straight home games and 5 out of 7 weeks we have to go to the stadium.  Good luck with your marriages. 

And if you are an optimist for some reason that thinks the Bills might have a chance to be good this year they finish with 5 of their last 7 games coming on the road.  The Bills were 2-6 on the road last year.

Yeah I would have likely found something to complain about, but this is truly the worst schedule I could imagine from a season ticket holder stand point.  Shoot me
