Buffalo Bills Mock Draft Roundup 6.0

Throughout the year and leading up to the 2023 NFL Draft, we will update our Buffalo Bills Mock Draft Roundup showing picks for the Buffalo Bills from several prominent sites and draft analysts.

The following are picks in recent mock drafts for the Bills:

CBS Sports - Chris Trapasso (3/9)

27. Rashee Rice, WR, SMU

The Bills opt with Rice over Jordan Addison because of size and explosiveness. Rice can win on the perimeter and after the catch. Plus he stars in combat-catch situations.

ESPN - Todd McShay (3/7)

27. Keion White, EDGE, Georgia Tech

Buffalo's roster doesn't have many holes, so it might be "best player available" -- and White is a steal at this point in Round 1. The 6-5, 285-pounder posted 7.5 sacks in 2022, had a great Senior Bowl week and then looked good at the combine. The Bills used a first-rounder on Greg Rousseau in 2021 and then signed Von Miller last offseason, but adding White to the pass-rush mix helps build out a really good group. Buffalo was 14th in sacks (40) and pressure rate (30.0%) last season, and White can contribute off the edge early in his career.

Alternatively, the Bills could shore up the offensive line since both starting tackles are entering their final two years under contract. Oklahoma tackle Anton Harrison or Florida guard O'Cyrus Torrence might make sense.

NFL.com - Lance Zierlein (3/7)

27. O'Cyrus Torrence, IOL, Florida

The Bills need help on the defensive side of the ball, but guard is a position they may not pass up on in the first round if a body-mover like Torrence makes it to this spot.

The Athletic - Dane Brugler (3/7)

27. Drew Sanders, LB, Arkansas

There is a good chance the Bills get a deal done with Tremaine Edmunds. If the two sides are unable to reach an agreement, though, this pick could be a potential contingency plan. In a lot of ways, Sanders is very similar to Edmunds as a prospect: big, athletic and versatile with the skill set to play SAM, MIKE or rush the passer.

USA Today - Nate Davis (3/7)

27. Bijan Robinson, RB, Texas

A three-down back with his talent and speed — Robinson clocked a 4.46 40 on Sunday — would have been a surefire top-five selection 20 years ago. This has to be the year Buffalo pulls the trigger on a guy who averaged 7 yards per touch for the Longhorns in order to reduce the rushing load on QB Josh Allen, right? Especially with Devin Singletary's contract expiring? Quite the workhorse, Robinson had more than 3,300 yards from scrimmage over the past two seasons.

The 33rd Team (3/7)

27. Josh Downs, WR, North Carolina

The Bills give Josh Allen another weapon at wide receiver. Josh Downs plays bigger than his 5-foot-9 size, and he has a very good burst to separate. He will be a nice fit for the Bills' offense.

Bleacher Report (3/7)

27. Bijan Robinson, RB, Texas

Bijan Robinson's pairing with the Buffalo Bills at this particular slot has become boring. Perfect pairings usually are. They're so obvious that all of the excitement fades. However, Robinson actually playing in the Bills' offense can be truly electric.

"The Bills offense would benefit greatly from a real three-down back," Klassen said. "As a runner, Robinson is special. He sports a thick yet flexible frame that allows him to bounce and weave through the line of scrimmage before brushing off tackles at the second level. He also has the speed to threaten the perimeter very effectively.

"On passing downs, Robinson brings value both as a blocker and a receiver. He displays reliable hands and offers more receiving ability than simple check-downs. The Doak Walker Award winner is also as chippy as they come in pass pro."

Basically, quarterback Josh Allen has been the Bills' primary running threat since he became the starter. But even a 6'5", 237-pound quarterback doesn't need to take the type of hits that Allen regularly does. Robinson makes Buffalo's offense more complete by adding a true threat out of the backfield.

Some may groan seeing the standout back slotted here yet again, but the general excitement he can create in an already top-shelf offense brings a potential Offensive Rookie of the Year impact.

Touchdown Wire - Doug Farrar (3/6)

27. O'Cyrus Torrence, IOL, Florida

The Bills need to do a few things on offense: They need to get away from Ken Dorsey's boom-or-bust playbook and move back to Brian Daboll's more versatile, efficient playbook (surely there are old Daboll playbooks somewhere in the facility), they need to stop relying on Josh Allen to do EVERYTHING, and they need to come with a run game that works more of the time. Putting together a more solid offensive line would help in all matters, and the need at guard is clear. Torrence isn't the most specifically athletic guard in this draft class, but he knows how to blow guys up in the run game, and he allowed no sacks, one quarterback hit, and four quarterback hurries on 395 pass-blocking reps when protecting Anthony Richardson.

Los Angeles Times - Sam Farmer (3/4)

27. Antonio Johnson, S, Texas A&M

The Bills desperately need help at receiver, but if all the top-shelf guys are off the board could turn their attention to holes in the secondary.
