‘Buffalo Bills. K’Lavon Chaisson, EDGE, LSU. Yes, the Bills need a wide receiver, and there are some attractive options still on the board in this scenario. My expectation, though, is that a player the Bills like at receiver will be available on the second day of the draft, so my preference is to wait. Chaisson is just 20 years old, but the Bills showed when they drafted Tremaine Edmunds as a 19-year-old that they’re not worried about age. Chaisson had 60 tackles (13.5 of which were for a loss) and 6.5 sacks in 13 games during the Tigers’ national championship season. He led LSU in tackles for loss, sacks and quarterback hurries (six) in 2019.’
‘Olsen would be a nice addition, but not a needed one, in my mind. Dawson Knox showed enough as a rookie to lead me to believe he’s got real promise. His tendency to drop passes was troubling, but I’m willing to bet that improves. If Olsen is agreeable to a short-term deal (one or two years at most), he would provide the Bills an intriguing two-tight end set with Knox.’

‘Jones, 27, was drafted by Buffalo in the fourth round of the 2016 NFL Draft while Jackson, 22, was signed by Buffalo following the 2019 NFL Draft. Jones, the Defenders’ starting quarterback, made an impressive debut completing 16-of-26 passes for 291 yards and two touchdowns. Both of his tosses went to former Bills players.’
