Your final prediction: Who will the Bills draft in round 1

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

I've waited until the day before the draft so that we could all gather as much intel as possible. 

You can answer simply or you can go into detail.

You can list two guys if you think they're going to be making two picks in the 1st round.

When it's all said and done, who do YOU think will be the Bills' first round pick?

I'll start: Christian Wilkins, DT, Clemson. I think he's 100% the type of guy the Bills want to build around. You won't find a better "Process"/locker room/culture fit anywhere in the draft. Also, the perception of Wilkins suffers because of the presence of guys like Oliver and Williams in this draft, but he's a baller. He may not have the explosiveness of Oliver (few do), but he's a supremely physically talented player in his own right. He is also extremely versatile and lined up everywhere along the d-line at Clemson. Between who Wilkins is as a person, who he is as a player, and where he is likely to be selected in the draft, I think he's the most likely round 1 pick for the Bills. I believe they'll trade down with either Carolina or Houston and wind up selecting Wilkins.

Who's yours? Let's hear 'em!

I think Oliver drops and Hock is there too at 9.

 

Oliver has to be higher on the board, but we need both positions and both guys should be fine pro's.

 

I say Hock.

Based on Preference, Hock. 

 

Based on what I am feeling is likely? Jonah Williams

 

I wouldn't hate Williams at all, and he makes sense. I mostly just prefer a "Sexy pick" cause im a shallow SOB.

DK Metcalf. Maybe it's just my perception, but it seems like the Bills FO have put a lot more effort into researching the depth of DL, OL, and DB than WR. That tells me they're looking there early. The only potential wrench I see is if Ed Oliver falls to 9. He's the only guy I see them taking over DK. Adding smoke to this fire, the WR's that were researched the most by Buffalo are DK Metcalf, AJ Brown, and Damarkus Lodge. Maybe they like AJ's high floor more than DK's high ceiling, but I truly believe they were getting intel from his teammates.

I think Oliver, Jonah, Q-Williams, and Hock will all be gone... so we end up with DK Metcalf

 

If any of those guyrs remain however, they will take one of them

I feel the same regarding these two. Would fully understand picking Jonah and would understand why its a sensible move. But I would much rather draft Hock. Maybe its because I think Hock has a better chance to be SPECIAL than Williams. Or maybe I'm just a shallow SOB.

TJ Hockenson, the only team ahead of us that likely take him be the Jags yet  unless the Raiders really over reach. Yet the Jags also need help all over the field so not sure TE their top priority.

Let me just throw a wrench in the works here. Just for fun. Dexter Lawrence.

I'm worried about the age thing.  I mean this is a top 10 pick, assuming no trade-down.  I don't know if that's worth it for a guy who will be 24 by the end of this year. 

 

If I have to pick 1, I'd say Oliver.  But either of the top 2 OT's would be fine, and I've warmed up to Hock so I'd be ok with this too

My final prediction is that there will be several more final predictions before 8PM tomorrow.

I agree. If both are there you have to take Oliver but Hock would be an amazing runner up pick.
