The Buffalo Bills own the 25th pick, and this may be the first draft where nobody truly knows where they will go in the first round. Many analysts have the Bills taking a RB as we come closer to night one, with Breece Hall the most common player. So, who should the Bills take?
1.) RB Breece Hall, Iowa State
Hall has been rumored to the Bills for a little over a week now, and it’s only heating up as we get closer. Breece fits perfectly with the Bills offense. He can be a nice, reliable option for Josh Allen and the new scheme the Bills plan to run. If drafted, a Hall/Singletary backfield should be able to do some damage. Hall had a pretty productive career with Iowa State, totaling 1,472 yards and 20 TDs on the ground this past season, as well as with 302 yards and three receiving TDs.
2.) CB Andrew Booth Jr., Clemson
Cornerback seems to be the popular pick among the fanbase after losing Levi Wallace and Tre White going down with his injury. Booth would be a great addition to a defense that will have their hands full in the AFC. He (and a veteran corner) should solidify the Buffalo Bills secondary in a crucial year for the unit. Booth won First team All-Pro for his stellar 2021 campaign; one where he totaled three INTs and five passes defended.
3.) WR Treylon Burks, Arkansas
WR is always a need in the Bills offense, and if somebody like Burks falls to 25, that should be the pick. Burks would fit in nicely alongside Gabe Davis and Stefon Diggs, and would give the team some much needed depth with Isaiah McKenzie and Jamison Crowder working behind him. Burks, standing at 6’2 225 gives Josh Allen a much needed physical receiver in the red zone. Last season, he totaled 1,104 yards & 11 TDs on 66 receptions.
4.) S Lewis Cine, Georgia
This one depends on if you believe Jordan Poyer is staying with the team this season or not. If he’s going to get traded, Cine is the perfect pick for 25 and a great replacement for Poyer. He had a pre draft visit with the Bills not too long ago. With Poyer turning 31 and entering a contract year, it wouldn’t be surprising to draft his eventual replacement with this pick. Cine totaled 73 tackles and one INT last season.
