Round Five (Pick 162): Josh Imatorbhebhe, WR – Illinois
With the 162nd overall pick in the BF mock draft, I selected Josh Imatorbhebhe from Illinois. He stands 6’2″ and 215 lbs., so he won’t blow you away with his measurables. However, he is super athletic and explosive on the football field. While he didn’t put up huge numbers in college, he possesses the tools that you take a flyer on with a late round pick. I like the idea of adding a receiver in every draft because, in a pass happy offense like the Bills displayed in 2020, you need four or five that you can rely on. With Beasley set to turn 32 and John Brown a potential cap casualty, it would be ideal to inject some more youth into the position. Gabriel Davis was a home run fourth round flyer last year. Imatorbhebhe has the chance to be that this year.
Round Five (Pick 175): Shaka Toney, Edge – Penn State
With the 175th overall pick, I selected Shaka Toney from Penn State. He measures in at 6’3″ and 240 lbs. He posted 21 tackles, 5 sacks and 1 forced fumble in 2020. Again, in late rounds, the idea should be to take fliers on guys with potential. Toney has the tools to be a reliable pass rusher in the NFL, but may need to go the Epenesa route and transform his body before he can become a difference maker. Given Buffalo’s starting edge rushers (Hughes and Addison) are up there in age, adding a young guy like Toney to the room is a good idea for Brandon Beane. He can learn from the coaching staff and vets. Toney is not going to be a game changing defensive end, but he could develop into a nice rotational pass rusher. (We all know how Sean McDermott loves rotating the defensive line.)
