I have Oweh at #53. He is polarizing. I am record elsewhere as to my concerns with him. I can imagine Beane and McDermott liking him... what it comes down to for me is there could still be a lot of options at edge left on the board they might feel they can get one later. 

 

On Epenesa not sure I'd say he has any special athleticism. He was drafted on his production I think. Allen, Edmunds, Oliver... yes athletic traits were big in those picks and I agree the Bills value them. Just not sure Epenesa quite fits that mould. 

As I recall, the story on Epenesa was that he had limited reps in college, and was not polished at his position, but had natural ability, especially in his upper body, and hands. He had a talent for throwing opponents off balance, and using chop moves, and such to take away an offensive lineman's leverage. Or something like that.

 

But I think, like Allen, and Edmunds, they saw high potential in a less polished player. Maybe a better way of looking at it is that, in their earlier draft picks, they're placing a higher priority on the ceiling than the floor?

Morning all..... I spent a couple of hours on this last night so here is my first mock draft of 2021. For those new to the board or unfamiliar I tend to do one pre-free agency, one post and then one i

Thanks for the effort GB. I know that something like this takes time. There is too much work involved to just put this up in a few minutes. Posts like this are what makes this board great.  

So here it is version 3.0 and my FINAL mock draft for 2021. This is the mock I will score myself against at the end of the night.    1 Jacksonville Jaguars – Trevor Lawrence, Quarterback, Cl

He only started his final year in college but he was a heavy part of the rotation before that. I mean maybe that is what the Bills thought but to me Epenesa was a high floor, relatively average ceiling guy though. I don't put him in that Edmunds, Allen, Oliver category at all. Look at their RAS profiles (Relative Athletic Score) ie. how athletically gifted are they compared to their peers at the position (it's out of 10).

 

Allen - 9.67

Edmunds - 9.74

Oliver - 9.87

Epenesa - 4.09

 

Not disagreeing with your premise that they like athletic freak types in the first round, but Epenesa doesn't belong in that conversation.

I like it except pick #25, I think he'd be there at #33, but I can understand why you made the pick...I also think Buffalo might take weaver in the second opening up pick #30 to Etienne or another play maker the Bills may like...I was looking at a chart earlier that showed the short shuttle and 3-cone #'s of the edge guys and that Buffalo really values those numbers and the top 2 or 3 were Oweh and Weaver with Rousseau way at the bottom...what are your thoughts on Weaver?

 

I have a 4th on him. I think his best fit is probably as a base end in a 3 man front. As an end in a 4-3 I think he could stop the run and set the edge and scoop a few clean up sacks, but he doesn't have the bend or the hand usage to win consistently against NFL tackles to my eye.

GB -thanks for the thoughts.  I hope it doesn't happen though, I just don't like the RB round 1.

 

If it breaks like that I hope the Bills work the Z Ertz trade and move back 7 spots.  Looks like a lot of good players at expensive positions of somewhat need will be there.

if this turns out exactly how you predicted that you will get free membership for a year.

 

😄 Heck, he should get free membership for life! The odds of all 32 picks and the trade being correct are almost nil.
