, the performance of the Buffalo Bills offensive line could be charitably described as “sub-par.” In this week’s mock draft for SB Nation, Dan Kadar connects the dots that the Bills may be looking for an upgrade and that general manager Brandon Beane may be willing to “reach.”With offensive linemen Jonah Williams and Greg Little already off the board before Buffalo’s pick, Kadar has the Bills nonetheless selecting the third offensive lineman in the draft. Other potential targets, such as receivers D.K. Metcalf, Marquise Brown and Riley Ridley, were on the board and didn’t come off until picks 17 White Kyle Williams Jerseys
, 20 and 22 respectively. Three-technique defensive tackle Ed Oliver was also available.Grif’s takeKadar himself admitted that Ford was a reach and, at this point in the draft process, it’s hard to argue with him. The 6’4”, 338-pound former Oklahoma Sooner does have a great resume. He earned a spot on the All-Big 12 team this past season and was a part of the offensive line that won the Joe Moore Award for having the best line in college football.

, especially around the combine.While it’s an unexpected choice, it’s hard to argue, with Ed Oliver on the board, that it was the best choice at pick nine. Unlike Alabama tackle Jonah Williams, Ford spent this season solely playing right tackle and doesn’t bring the same level of upside as a potential franchise blindside protector. With the retirement of Kyle Williams, the Bills need at defensive tackle has come to the forefront and Oliver has been mocked inside of the top-five picks all season. Although Buffalo Bills fans didn’t have much to cheer for during the 2018 season (other than the continued development of quarterback Josh Allen) White Josh Allen Jerseys
, they can take solace in the fact that the team is currently slated to have ten picks in the coming NFL draft. The bevy of extra picks are a result of general manager Brandon Beane’s penchant for wheeling and dealing. Instead of cutting players that weren’t ideal schematic fits, like Reggie Ragland or AJ McCarron, Beane was able to flip them to the Kansas City Chiefs and Oakland Raiders respectively for decent middle-round picks. Despite some early confusion regarding whether the Bills or the Denver Broncos would be in possession of the ninth pick of the first round, Buffalo’s selections in the 2019 NFL Draft currently stand as follows:Buffalo Bills 2019 NFL Draft selectionsRoundPickOverallNotesRoundPickOverallNotesWhen the Chiefs’ season is done, we’ll be able to pinpoint the exact slot of the 4th rounder pick from them.
