Buffalo Bills Full Mock Draft: Round Seven

Published

on

Wow, we’re finally here. Mock number six, round number seven. It’s been an absolutely wild ride. To those who have read us every single week, I appreciate you! This isn’t the end though. There are going to be a lot more mock drafts to come. I promise you!

Let’s get into it. The Buffalo Bills kept every single draft pick. You’ve partied for three days straight and we’re on day three. You’ve watched teams let every random person in the world call out a draft pick and now the Bills are on the clock one last time.

Previous Picks

  • Round One (Pick 30): Jaelan Phillips, Edge – Miami (FL)
  • Round Two (Pick 61): Chazz Surratt, LB – North Carolina 
  • Round Three (Pick 94): Spencer Brown, OT – Northern Iowa
  • Round Five (Pick 162): Richard LeCounte III, S – Georgia
  • Round Five (Pick 175): Whop Philyor, WR – Indiana
  • Round Six (Pick 214): James Smith, P Cincinnati

Round Seven (Pick 234): Marco Wilson, CB Florida 

Brandon Beane waiting till the seventh round to take a Corner Back? Sure why not, I’ve seen crazier things happen. Here’s the big thing, the secondary is pretty deep so I do not foresee the Bills moving on a Corner early in the Draft unless one falls to them that they love. Any of the boys from ‘Cuse would work.

Marco Wilson is a long rangy corner that needs a coach to help him release the tools he already has. Wilson has great closing speed and for a team that likes to play off coverage he could be an asset. Spending a seventh round pick on a player who’s upside could be huge seems like a win win.

Previous Picks

  • Round One (Pick 30): Teven Jenkins, OT – Oklahoma State
  • Round Two (Pick 61): Hamsah Nasirildeen, S/LB – Florida State
  • Round Three (Pick 94): Kenny Gainwell, RB/WR – Memphis
  • Round Five (Pick 162): Tedarrell Slaton, DT – Florida
  • Round Five (Pick 175): Jaelon Darden, WR – North Texas
  • Round Six (Pick 214): Tarron Jackson, Edge – Coastal Carolina

Round Seven (Pick 234): Tony Poljan, TE – Virginia

Tony Poljan converted from Quarterback to Tight End before his junior season. In 2019, his first season at the position, Poljan recorded 33 receptions, 496 yards, and four touchdowns for Central Michigan, earning Second-Team All-MAC honors in the process. Then, in 2020, he posted 38 receptions for 411 yards and six touchdowns with Virginia. According to Joe Marino (The Draft Network), Poljan (6’7”, 265 lbs.) “has the frame of a classic throwback Tight End” with “the size needed to block in the trenches and challenge the middle of the field”.

Many, including myself, view him as a more athletic Lee Smith. (Joe Marino compares him to former Bills Tight End Scott Chandler.) Even though the Bills want to add athleticism to the tight end position, they cannot overlook the importance of a blocking tight end like the aforementioned Smith. So why not use a seventh-round pick to take a flier on a cheaper, more athletic blocking tight end?

Previous Picks

  • Round One (Pick 30): Azeez Ojulari, Edge – Georgia
  • Round Two (Pick 61): Jevon Holland, S – Oregon
  • Round Three (Pick 94): Pete Werner, LB – Ohio State
  • Round Five (Pick 162): Marlon Williams, WR – UCF
  • Round Five (Pick 175): Tommy Kraemer, IOL – Norte Dame
  • Round Six (Pick 214): Chris Rumph II, Edge – Duke

Round Seven (Pick 234): Landon Young, OT – Kentucky

We need to improve in the run game and this 6’7” beast will help with that. Be it with power runs in the middle and the outside, Young will be great in the offensive line rotation that Sean McDermott loves to use. He does have some issues with pass protection, but with a year or two to develop he could be the next late-round gem (i.e. Wyatt Teller). He was a First-Team All-SEC selection this past year. I watched his highlights in the East-West Shrine Bowl and he could be a sneaky good late-round pick. Watch him and you will love him as I do!

  • Round One (Pick 30): Travis Etienne, RB – Clemson.
  • Round Two (Pick 61): Quinn Meinerz, OG/C – Wisconsin Whitewater.
  • Round Three (Pick 94): Jabril Cox, LB – LSU
  • Round Five (Pick 162): Hamsah Nasirildeen, S/LB – Florida State
  • Round Five (Pick 175): Demetrius Felton, RB/WR – UCLA
  • Round Six (Pick 214): Cornell Powell, WR – Clemson

Round Seven (Pick 234): Xavier Kelly, DT – Clemson

Xavier Kelly is a sleeper at the Defensive Tackle position. It is simple enough to say he can develop and blossom into a superb DT. In the McDermott system, he will have more than a fair chance to do so. He has significant potential. Coming into the NFL as a relative unknown, it’s possible he falls to day three.

Round Seven (Pick 234): Tony Poljan, TE – Virginia

With their last pick of the 2021 NFL Draft, I have the Buffalo Bills taking Tony Poljan out of Virginia. The Central Michigan transfer and former quarterback had a great first year playing for a Power 5 program. He has solid hands and is a solid blocker to boot. Tight End is a very versatile position in this year’s class and getting Poljan may be an under-the-radar pick for the Bills to boot. He will compete for TE2 with a free agent, and maybe even TE1 with Dawson Knox.

Previous Picks

  • Round One (Pick 30): Kadarious Toney, WR – Florida
  • Round Two (Pick 61): Chazz Surratt, LB – North Carolina
  • Round Three (Pick 94): Payton Turner, DE – Houston
  • Round Five (Pick 162): Tedarrell Slaton, DT – Florida
  • Round Five (Pick 175): Alaric Jackson, OT – Iowa
  • Round Six (Pick 214): Shaka Toney, DE – Penn State

Round Seven (Pick 234): Chris Evans, RB – Michigan


Evans broke out early in his Michigan career before an academic suspension cost him his 2019 season. He’s not a burner, but he’s quick and shifty in the open field. Evans always makes the first defender miss and rarely goes down on first contact. His biggest upside may be as a receiver out of the backfield. He’s a natural pass catcher with excellent hands. Evans has mid-round talent, but he hasn’t played much football in the past two seasons and should be available late.
