2021 NFL Draft Preview: Mock Draft Reviews

by Steve

Everyone has a mock draft, even me. So lets take a look at what the supposed professionals think is going to happen with the Bills 30th overall pick. First, here is the Bills needs, draft predictions, and QB rankings.

Jay Skurski TBN:
Travis Etienne

Useless pick at a useless position. This would be the equivalent of drafting a runningback at 16 overall if u consider where Singletary & Moss were drafted in the 3rd round based on the Jimmy Johnson value chart. Someone would have to be moved or maybe even both.

Florio PFT:
Najee Harris RB bama
Same as ETN, guy played 4 years and a RB in round 1 is pointless.

Danny Jeremiah NFL:
Asante Samuel CB FSU
McDerr is allegedly the cornerback whisperer who hasnt been able to find anyone opposite Tre White so maybe this would be a solid pick. Im not sold but wouldnt hate it.

The Ringer
Caleb Farley CB Va Tech
Sort of a boom or bust guy. He was a stud except for the back surgery. Then he sat out because "covid19" ? Then got covid19 disease caused by a novel coronavirus? Same thought process about corner, is a #2 CB worth another first round pick?

Walter Football
Jamin Davis LB UK
This might be worse than drafting a RB. Sure Edmunds was bad last year but christ, drafting ANOTHER LB (useless position [no1 stops great TEs])? Unless this dude is the next Bryce Paup he can fuck off.

Pete Prisco CBS
Jayson Oweh Edge PSU
The first thought that comes to mind is of course Aaron Maybin. My second thought is why did he sit out the year? Just kidding he played & had zero sacks. As an edge rusher. in the overrated big ten. Sure Parsons was gone and sacks arent everything but zero? He better contribute ASAP, no reason to gamble on a huge need position.

Todd McShay
Trading up for Etienne
lolol kill me

Mel Kiper
Tyson Campbell CB Georgia
A new name for me, I trust McDerr to pick "his guy" but it will be highly scrutinized if some of the popular names are on the board.

2021 NFL Draft Predictions

by Steve

Its fun to get these things written down in advance to show how right (wrong) I was. So here are some draft predictions. Previously I wrote about the Bills needs & ranked the quarterback prospects.

The Bills wont trade up for a runningback but after the draft Beane will say something like he tried to move up but couldnt justify it.

Justin Fields & Mac Jones fall out of the top 5 and likely much farther.

One runningback goes in the first round

There is a huge run on offensive talent except stupid teams like Detroit, New England, Houston & Giants.

Bills draft a D-lineman.

Caleb Farley falls out of the first round.

6 QBs get drafted Thursday.

Everyone will rave about the Dolphins & Jaguars draft and rip the Jets. Belichick will be labeled a genius for "navigating" the draft.

The Bills will draft a QB Saturday.

Zach Ertz gets moved Friday.

Kyle Pitts will be a bust.

There aren't nearly as many trades as prior years and the talk of the draft will be a lack of medical information on players and GMs play it more straight.

2021 NFL Draft Preview: QB Rankings

by steve

Here is my list of Bills needs heading into the 2021 NFL Draft. But all anyone is talking about is QB QB QB. Sooo.

Lets rank all these overrated quarterbacks:

1. Trevor Lawrence
This guy has been in the spotlight so long he isn't even talked about much any more. Boring. Good luck in Jax.

2. Justin Fields
I was never a big Fields guy but his alleged fall down draft boards is perplexing. He has some athleticism, good arm, played in big games and has deceptive size. Is a stud? No but at least he played last year and the year before and against a real conference.

3. Davis Mills
:snoop dogg who gif:
No one watched the pac12 this year. They started their season way late, had a bunch of canceled games and play at 3am or some shit. Mills is raw and only has 11 starts but dude has the pedigree. You know Andrew Luck and Kevin Hogan went to Staford right?

4. Tre Lance
No one watched this dude play. If you say you did you're a liar. He has played like 2 games since Dec 2019 and plays in a sub college league. But from what I read he has size and strength. If Allen could prove people wrong from a similar school and league why not this dude.

5. Kellen Mond
This might my SEC bias or when I look at Mond I get a Dak vibe. Plus he checks a lot of boxes. 4 year starter, size 6'3 217, tough conference, improvement with his completion % and has reduced his turnovers. Might be a 2nd round gem.

6. Zach Wilson
BYU pretty boy with as punchable a face as one can have. Sure he plays like a kid out there having fun but is that a recipe for success? Plus he doesmt even play in a conference, is gonna be stuck going to the Jets and has what a appears to be a slight build.

7. Jamie Newman
Biiig dude that transferred from Wake to Georgia but never played. Why is he getting zero run just because he didnt play last year but Lance is? All I know is he didnt have 3 top 15 players around him on offence as a Deacon.

which brings us to number 8
8. Mac Jones
If this guy isn't the definition of game manager clip board hero who finally got to drive his Dad's Mercedes in the drive way. Thats basically what Jones got with the team he "lead" to the Natty last year.

9. Kyle Trask
Compiler. Wouldnt be surprised if he got a shot as a sharter in a year or 2 but reminds me of Tebow because of the jersey.

2021 Bills Draft Preview: Needs

by Steve

Most people think the Bills are set with a deep roster, few open spots on the 53 man and can basically go in any direction they please. Obviously I disagree.

Let's face it, last year was a but of a fluke. Allen didnt have to play in front of any crowds. The Bills caught the league off guard with the explosion of Diggs that no one saw coming (cmon who predicted he would lead the league in multiple categories?) . The division was awful and the schedule opened up.

Allen did of course play much better; you cant fake your way to 13 wins. Clearly the roster isnt bereft of talent. But there are still needs on this roster if the Bills have any hope of staying within 10 points of the Chiefs ever.

The Bills have 7 draft picks, 30th, 61, 93, 161 in the 5th, 174 in the 5th, 213 in the 6th and 236 in the 7th.

My ranking of Bills needs:
Defensive end/edge rusher
Tight end
Wide Receiver

This team needs to get after the quarterback. Whether that is even possible in the age of 2 second hike & release might be up for debate. But what shouldn't be up for debate is the idea that Maddy Addison, Jerry Hughes and Darryl Johnson is an awful trio on the edge.

The only thing more important in a quality tight end besides route running snd blocking is CATCHING THE FUCKING BALL. And floppy Knox cant catch the ball. The Bills are desperate for this position because they have a few good slot receivers and an all pro on the outside. But an upgrade is badly needed.

Tre White is the shutdown gut but after his is just a bunch of dudes. McDerr loves corners and can seemingly find them anywhere. But he has yet to find a bonafide # 2 CB.

A team that wants to pass as much as Daboll's can never have too many WRs. Davis was a nice surprise, but Sanders and Beasley are in their 30s. Hodgins is a question mark and McKenzie is on a one year deal. Finding a roster spot may be tough unless Beane finds a talent early.

Mitch Morse is a benched bitch with injury history & a bloated contract. This might be more of a need than  i think.

Safety for depth is always a need.

Not surprisingly runningback is not on the list. Beaner used a day 2 pick on RB each of the last two years. While neither Singletary or Moss are above average they both are serviceable & complimentary. Moreover they just signed speedster Matt Breida. Late day 3 flyer is all thats needed to address runningback.
