Round 5 (Pick 162): Hamsah Nasirildeen, S/LB, FSU
Hamsah Nasirildeen is an intriguing candidate to play a hybrid S/LB role in the Bills defense. The aggressive and impactful defender can offer the Bills better tactical options to control the middle of the field and neutralize tight ends and receivers. Having a player like this on the field opens up options of playing esoteric defensive patterns that frustrate the best teams, similar to Tamp Bay’s gameplan in this past Super Bowl.
Round 5 (Pick 175): Demetrius Felton, RB/WR – UCLA
Demetric Felton is the perfect successor to Cole Beasley and Isaiah McKenzie. He can fill the speed and slot receiver roles and still have usefulness in the run game, all for a day three pick. With a bit of development in the slot and gadget role (the Bills love development), Felton can truly blossom. Check out “The Draft Spies, Volume III” for an in-depth look into Demetric Felton.
