Every year there’s prospects that you absolutely pray the Buffalo Bills do not draft. As fans, we’ve learned and evolved to eventually talk ourselves into liking any prospect that’s drafted. Who knows maybe your evaluation wasn’t so lock tight. I for one hated Josh Allen in the 2018 pre-draft process. 1 year later, love the guy. We now have Big Baller Beane and it seems as though the tides are changing opposed to the last 20 years of misery. So let’s get into it, the top 5 prospects I’ll be probably be pissed to see the Bills draft (in the first round) in 2019…
5.) D.K. Metcalf
I actually like D.K. Metcalf, but I only like him a bit later in the first round. I am a believer that D.K. should most likely transition well into the NFL because of his raw athleticism and passion for the game. For the Bills, I believe we’re a bit early in the re-build process to swing for the fences (top 10 pick) at WR. It’s a deep position where we can get some serious talent if need be in the second round. Build up those trenches baby.
4.) Any Clemson Defensive Linemen
Look I get it, Clelin Ferrell and Christian Wilkins are pretty good. For the love of god please do not draft another Clemson defensive lineman. If anybody can tweet me the last Clemson defensive lineman that actually transitioned to the NFL as a great player (in the last 10 years), I’ll mail you a dollar bill. It’s unfair to label Clemson defensive linemen as busts, but that’s exactly what I’m doing until proven wrong.
3.) T.J. Hockenson
Apparently this guy is the next Gronk. Yeah, sure. I mean he could be? But I guarantee you he’s not getting drafted top 10. Why on earth would you draft a tight end top 9? The last tight end to get drafted top 9 was Vernon Davis to the 49ers in 2006 (Pick: 6). He vary well could end up being good, I don’t doubt that. I’ll take my chances and pass for a seemingly more impactful player at 9.
2.) Greedy Williams
As much as I like Greedy Williams, the Buffalo Bills have zero business drafting a first round CB. You can also insert Byron Murphy and Deandre Baker. If pictures emerge on draft day of Greedy stealing candy at his local supermarket when he was 12 years old which drops his stock to the second round, then by all means!
1.) Andre Dillard
I know a lot of people love this guy. Pro Football Focus graded him the best pass blocking tackle in the draft. For me, he’s overrated. Small school tackle, hasn’t seen much competition. Pretty good Senior Bowl, no denying that. I have Jonah Williams, Jawaan Taylor and Dalton Risner all as better tackle options than Andre Dillard, for that reason I’ll pass on the Washington State product this early.
