The Buffalo Bills drafted Sheldon Rankins in Todd McShay's third mock draft.

Rex Ryan wouldn't mind this pick at all.

Todd McShay of ESPN released his third mock draft for the 2016 NFL draft on Wednesday. At pick 19, McShay has the Buffalo Bills adding one of the best defensive tackles in the draft class. The ESPN NFL draft analyst has Sheldon Rankins of Louisville falling to Buffalo. 

Here is what McShay said about Rankins and the Bills:

You have to think Rex Ryan would be pretty happy if Rankins fell to No. 19 overall. He’s not Sheldon Richardson, but the Louisville product would fill that type of role playing alongside Marcell Dareus in Ryan’s defense. Rankins has a unique combination of quickness and power for someone who weighs 299 pounds. One of the most underrated players in this class, Rankins brings a lot of scheme versatility to the table.

Rankins certainly seems like the type of player that Ryan would love to have on his defensive line. The only real question is whether or not Rankins makes it to pick 19.
