Buffalo Bills Draft 

Sports fans if you are looking for something that resembles a full course meal with the meat and potatoes and the addition of bread and butter then look no further than the Buffalo Bills draft selections year after year. Brandon Beane once again was very methodical in this draft as he dove right into the first round by moving up to get a necessity piece to the team’s defense. After the first round move, he then looked  to add a necessary piece to the team’s offense. From there, the general managing guru added depth to some key positions as the Buffalo Bills always look to have a deep rotation. This year’s recipe looked like this….

The first round selection at Pick 23 was CB Kaiir Elam from Florida. The Bills moved up two spots to solidify getting one of the best corners in the draft. The 6′ 2″ 200lb cornerback  runs a 4.39 and moves very well and possesses admirable cornerback traits such as changing directions exceptionally well, has fluid hips, has great athleticism to recover, and can definitely cover short routes just as well as he can cover routes 20 plus yards down the field. Definitely a grade A pick to start off the draft.

In Round Two, we saw the Buffalo Bills at pick 63, take running back James Cook from Georgia. James Cook is a elusive runner who can catch out of the backfield. His sure hands in college make him a weapon in both the running game and the passing game. In college, Cook only had two fumbles, averaged 10.9 yards per catch and also averaged near 7 yards a carry. Oh yeah, he is also the younger brother of Dalvin Cook. If he can stay healthy, Cook should be a interesting piece to this Bills offense. 

Buffalo Bills also selected:

Round 3 pick 89 overall LB Terrel Bernard from Baylor 

Round 5 pick 148 overall WR Khalil Shakira from Boise State 

Round 6 pick 180 overall P Matt Araiza from San Diego State 

Round 6 pick 185 overall CB Christian Benford from Villanova

Round 6 pick 209 overall OT Luke Tenuta from Virginia Tech

Round 7 pick 231 overall LB Baylon Spector from Clemson For more Bills news, support the Rise Up Right Articles at thechallengernews.com.
