  1. Feliciano is an average guard and center (and is paid like one). Since they couldn't run between the tackles with Morse, Feliciano and Boettger pretty much at all and since they got their lunch eaten by good D tackles all season (Are Chris Jones and Frank Clark done chasing Josh yet) upgrades with better athletes (ie higher draft picks...look at the new OT's this year) seemed logical. It is doubtful drafted interior O linemen would start in 2021 but if you get them in and on the roster, 2022 is possible. Morse and Feliciano might be feisty and experienced but both are both candidates to be re
  2. OK. I'll hold you to it. Morse won't be on the roster (cap casualty) and they have no developmental one on the roster that I can see nor the resources after the Allen/Edmunds contracts to sign a good one in FA
  3. Ok, it's 2022. Who is our center? Thought they might draft a developmental one.
  4. With 17 regular season games this year, injuries are not likely to diminish any. Depth all over will be critical. I suspect that is what this draft is mainly about for the Bills
  5. Who are you going to replace Morse, Star, Hughes and Feliciano with next year? Raw rookies or this year's draft choices that have been coached for a year? They are going to pay Allen and Edmunds. They'll need cheaper labor for cap purposes. The Bills linemen on both sides of the ball just were not good enough to get them to the top of the mountain. I think giving up draft capital would be a huge mistake long term and 1 rookie player is not likely to make much of a difference this year. Hard no for me on giving up much of anything to move up.
  6. The Bob McGinn series of draft articles have been must read the past few years on The Athletic. It's always interesting to me to see the wide range of comments and opinions on each player. Other than Pitts, where there was unanimous praise, they are all over the place on almost everyone else. Some are nitpickier than others but it is still an interesting read. It's sometimes hard to believe scouts and league personnel people can watch the same guy and have such disparate views on what they've seen
  7. Cooley's comments come from: a) playing in a Shanahan system; B) analyzing Jones's tape and considering him the best fit for the system Shanahan runs. If you want to go by every mock draft in terms of what constitutes "consensus" go for it and good luck to ya. Mock drafts do not reflect the diversity of opinions individual teams exhibit in how they rank players. Take mocks with a grain of salt. By draft night Mayfield was a clear #1, the Jets traded up early for Darnold because they were quite sure Mayfield was 1 and they were ok with Darnold. If not #1, the Jets clearly saw him a
  8. Chris Cooley, ex WFT tight end is a friend of Kyle Shanahan and he thinks they are taking Mac Jones as well. The Bills did.
  9. 5 things: 1) a replacement 1 tech DT for Star in 2022 used as a rotational player in 2021 as he learns: 2) a replacement for Mitch Morse in 2022 used as a backup in 2021 at both G and C 3) a backup for Milano with the same skill set. Last year was tough when Milano was out; 4) CB2 high in the draft; 5) a developmental speed option WR or RB
  10. Don't know about round 1 but I'm still guessing they get their ultimate replacements for Star, Morse, Feliciano and Hughes in this draft. Not immediate replacements since the Bills are fighting for a Super bowl but guys to develop and have ready to replace them if they show enough in 2022. Quality upper end depth rather than mid level free agents. Cheap labor too.
  11. The best thing that could happen this year is if their high picks, Edwards and Oliver, become stars rather than just good players and Knox and Ford become good players rather than question marks. Development of their young players and adding to the base of "their drafted guys" will allow the rookies they add to grow and develop and do away with the need to hit the mid level free agency market every year. If that happens, we'll have sustained success and this front office will be transcendent.
  12. No. Not happening. Not plausible. Not realistic. A haters wet dream
  13. There is no reason they can't draft that, it just doesn't have to be in round 1. I expect them to find backup/replacements for Morse and Feliciano (and Star too) in 2022 with 2021 draftees. They would be developmental players. It's hard to start rookie O linemen on a Super Bowl challenger. Draft, develop and let them compete for full playing time in 2022. I think it's important they do that actually and if you want better athletes at the position (which I think should be their goal) rounds 2-4 should offer that opportunity
  14. Camp guy. They need a whole bunch more to fill out the roster or you'll be working starters and primary backups to death
