2018 Bills Draft Desires

Recommended Posts

 

 

DT is a huge need. Obviously QB, WR, OL and LB....

 

But I would just like to see some players fans have hopes for. Its not a probably not, or Bills won’t draft him or he won’t be there, or he’s not a McD guy etc. Throw a name out there.

 

As fans for the most part we agree on needs, just curious for my SA to look into.

 

The single guy I am intrigued over and seems to be a sure bet is....

 

Taven Bryan DT Florida. Recently announced he will go pro.

 

Does this kid make it out of the top 15?

There are a number of highly regarded DTs who will end up being in the draft.  Wilkins from Clemson, Payne from Alabama, (BTW, I think he should change his first name from Da'Ron to "Icause") Vita Vea from Washington,  and Maurice Hurst from Michigan are all considered possible first rounders.  Unless Hurst proves to have Aaron Donald - like athleticism, I would be wary of him because he is undersized.

Hurst is undersized. I think Wilkins and Bryan could be first 2 DTs off the board. Payne from Alabama is nice. But there is just something about Bryan that pulls me in over all of them .

 

Never liked DTs from Washington either.

 

Did you have a specific player you like?

Anthony Miller, WR, Memphis

Rashaad Penny, RB, San Diego State

Chad Thomas, DE, Miami

Micah Kiser, LB, UVA

I like Kiser too. Penny is the right build, along with Royce Freeman, those are my 2 RBs, Maybe a shifty guy like Justin Crawford from West Virginia, but he needs to add 10lbs (Shady type player).

I’ve spent a lot of late nights thinking about my deepest draft desires. No one keeps me up as late as Baker Mayfield.

I like Baker. But I gotta see him against Georgia’s D, if he rolls like he does against them and does the same against Clemson or Alabama he could be a top 5 Pick. Thing is I think he can.

Penny reminds me so much of Deangelo Williams coming out. Hopefully Beane sees the same thing.

I feel like the Front 7 will need at least a couple players through the draft and free agency - depends who we bring back. 

 

We for sure need pass rush help, and we need speed at linebacker.  Shaq is a solid rotational piece, but i think we're kidding ourselves if we think he'll all of sudden become a beastly pass rusher.  We need probably 2 DTs but with the amount they rotate, i don't think we necessarily need a big time pay-day guy there.  The play speed needs to be better at the Mike and SAM spots.  And that's just the defense.

 

Offensively - QB obviously.  I think RB2 is a huge need with every year of mileage we put on Shady.  Depending on what happens with Cordy, RG and RT are needs.  A WR2 is one of those things that I would love to be able to add - i just don't think we'll have the picks to do it.  Maybe bring back matthews if you like him here, or preferably I'd rummage through someone elses trash and grab a cap casualty and see what we can do with him.  Randall Cobb maybe?  Not sure who else looks like a dump candidate.  I gotta think with a new QB, these guys all probably look better.

While he looked good as a pass rusher, he looked like a liability against the run game at times.  He only played at a high level one year in college and really didn't dominate.  He was really good but he wasn't on the same level as some of the other DTs.  Right now, we need a guy like Vea who can take multiple blockers and still pose a threat as a pass rusher.  I think Payne and Wilkins would be the first two DTs off the board followed by Vea.  This guy looks like a nice guy to pair with a guy like Vea, Bryan wouldn't be relied on to stop the run.  In a lot of his plays he's showing poor gap discipline.  He has nice quickness but there is a lot to be desired in his play.  I think he'd be very good next to a huge run stopper like Vea who would stop the run and take on multiple blockers freeing him up.  I think he's a bottom of the first round talent right now. 

 

I don't mind him as a late first round pick or 2nd round pick but he will certainly need to get more strength and improve on his gap discipline.

All for a Quarterback, whatever it takes. 

My preference is Darnold.

 

i think Rosen and Mayfield are lower on their board than most people’s boards. 

 

If it cant be Darnold, I’d go after Lock/Rudolph/Allen. Allen has is critics, but the kid has some insane tools.

There is a lot to be said about building the center of all three levels on D. I feel like Hyde is a good safety. Roquan would be an amazing LB and then a DT who can eat some OLinmen would do the trick.

Roquan Smith - We need athleticism in the front 7 badly.  Pair him with Milano and we're moving in the right direction.

 

Minkah Fitzpatrick - Big game experience.  Versatile player position wise.  Long.  Love Tre' and EJ, but EJ does get dinged up.  Would be a nice top 3 and keep

                                    LJ for fourth CB.  Ftizparick and Hyde could rotate Safety/Corner on a matchup basis as needed and a strong secondary gets even stronger.

 

Maurice Hurst - I like him.  He's not the biggest, but he's very active.  Legit athleticism in the front 7 is poison for an offense.  It disrupts everything.

 

To run McD's system the way it is truly meant to be run, I would bet the D will be addressed three out of those first five picks.  I haven't forgotten about a QB.  I like Mason Rudolph, and I think taking him would allow the Bills to keep picks that address the other needs, but still give them a QB with the size Beane spoke about, who also has a lot of upside as a player. 

 

I believe Cordy Glenn is out the door.  The question is what will they get for him. 2nd or 3rd? (if his ankle/foot checks out he's worth that)  That would allow the Bills to trade up for a QB and still address that front 7.  Draft season will be compelling.

Mine has been deep about Rosen, crazy thing is Rudolph keeps showing up at the end.

Derrius Guice RB from LSU, not sure where he is projected to go but between him and Shady we would dominate on the ground. I love him, I think he'll be a solid pro.

Rosen is going to be great. Allen has all the tools you look for, he is not a sure thing but he had no help, I think he is the best prospect behind Rosen. Darnold would be unwise to declare.

I like Jewell as well. I think he could fit McDs system for sure. I’m thinking he will be an early to mid 2nd. Could take over for Brown at MLB no problem

Also lost to Iowa St. point is, I want to see him when it really matters against teams loaded with NFL talent.

Not taking anything away from OSU but we all know Alabama and Clemson are known for D, and this year Georgia is solid

I agree with the above mention of Smth . Smith and a quality d tackle transform this d

they need anther corner, wide out and I suspect a tackle.  that should take care of the first 5 picks

Tight end , back up Running back and and at the very least a situational pass rusher, this one could slip into the top 3 rounds

I believe they will go with a vet Quarterback and Peterman next year.  Starting with going after Cousins and working down their list .
