Buffalo Bills Round 2 NFL Draft Options

Buffalo doesn't get on the clock until pick 50, but there are plenty of talented options available with the first round of the draft in the books.

The first round of the 2015 NFL draft is in the books. On Friday, the Buffalo Bills will make their first selection at pick 50. After round one, who are some of the best options left for the Bills? Here’s a look:

Quarterback

Bryce Petty and Garrett Grayson, two players the Bills have shown interest in, are both on the board. While Buffalo is still looking for a long-term answer at the position, it wouldn’t be in their best interests to select either quarterback at this point. Both players could be in play at pick 81.

Offensive Line

The Bills currently have Cordy Glenn, Seantrel Henderson and Cyrus Kouandjio at tackle. Depth and competition could be added at pick 50. La’el Collins is the best offensive tackle on the board, but the chances of Buffalo taking him at pick 50 are slim to none due to personal issues. Collins was once looked at as a top 10-15 player in this draft class.

Jake Fisher, Donovan Smith and T.J. Clemmings could all be in play at pick 50 for the Bills, especially with Cordy Glenn entering the final year of his rookie contract.

At guard, Buffalo should be interested in A.J. Cann. Richie Incognito is only signed for the 2015 season and the team does not have a definite answer at left guard. Cann is a good fit in Buffalo’s power-running offense.

Tight End

Maxx Williams and Clive Walford are both available entering day two. The tight end class this season is rather weak, so both players could be appealing to Buffalo. Greg Roman likes to utilize the position and adding a talented pass catcher at pick 50 isn’t out of the question. Both players supposedly rubbed teams the wrong way with their attitudes.

Defensive Line

Eddie Goldman, Jordan Phillips and Carl Davis are all big men that the Bills could pursue at 50.

College defensive end options include Preston Smith, Owamagbe Odighizuwa, Danielle Hunter, and Mario Edwards.

Linebacker

There is plenty of talent still on the board at linebacker. Randy Gregory is the biggest name of them all. Buffalo would have a hard time passing on Gregory if he somehow fell to pick 50. He’s backup Mario Williams and Jerry Hughes at outside linebacker.

Eli Harold is another solid outside linebacker option. If Buffalo wants to add inside linebacker depth, Benardrick McKinney and Denzel Perryman are all options at 50.

Cornerback

Rex Ryan knows the importance of having cornerback depth. Buffalo has a pretty talented group but Jalen Collins could be tough to pass up if he were to fall to 50. Collins is strong in terms of press coverage and is a big cornerback at 6’1.” The value would certainly be there.

Safety

This year’s safety class leaves a lot to be desired but Landon Collins of Alabama may be a legitimate option for the Bills at pick 50. Collins is one of the better safeties in this year’s class and the Bills did lose Da’Norris Searcy in free agency. That said, Buffalo likes Duke Williams and the team has Bacarri Rambo and Jonathan Meeks as depth behind Duke and Aaron Williams.

Realistically, many of these players will be off the board when Buffalo picks at 50. That said, this list shows that there will be a few highly talented players on the board when the Bills officially gets on the clock on Friday night.
