Going to adopt the "1st choice, 2nd choice, 3rd choice" method. Meaning your first choice is worth 3 points, 2nd is worth 2, and 3rd is worth 1. Please do not select the same player multiple times in one selection. If you do, only the highest value will be taken for that and the lower duplicate votes will be discounted.

1. Arizona Cardinals: Kyler Murray, QB - Oklahoma
2. San Francisco 49ers: Nick Bosa, EDGE - Ohio State
3. New York Jets: Quinnen Williams, DT, Alabama
4. Oakland Raiders: Josh Allen, EDGE - Kentucky
5. Tampa Bay Buccaneers: Devin White, LB - LSU
6. New York Giants: Dwayne Haskins, QB - Ohio State
7. Jacksonville Jaguars: Jawaan Taylor, OT - Florida
8. Detroit Lions: Montez Sweat, EDGE - Mississippi State

9. Buffalo Blls

 

More options will be added in later picks. If after 20+ votes the selection is clearly one person as the favorite we will move on to the next pick. Otherwise It will be ~24 hours before the poll closes. If there are 2/3 options that are close, there will be a runoff. This is who you think they WILL pick, not who they SHOULD pick.

Ed Oliver, Jonah Williams, Christian Wilkins.

If Oliver is still here, he's hands-down the pick. Buffalo upgraded their offense and invested a ton in that side of the ball through free agency, signing 11 offensive free agents. Meanwhile, their defensive line is still good, but Marcella Dareus is gone and Kyle Williams is going. Ed Oliver would be a tremendous addition to this unit and is the best player available. Christian Wilkins would also be a nice pick. 

Jonah Williams is the best offensive line fit at this juncture. While I prefer Andre Dillard at left tackle, Williams has the versatility to play wherever he needs to as the free agent additions get into place. Ty Nsekhe may end up the RT starter while Dion Dawkins has been a solid LT since getting drafted in 2017, though he wasn't as effective this past year as he was as a rookie. Mitch Morse was taken from Kansas City to be the Bills' C, and Spencer Long had some decent years in Washington as guard or center. Jonah Williams could play guard and eventually kick out to right tackle when Nsekhe retires, or potentially play on the left side if he develops well. He's a better run blocker than Dillard, and nearly as good in pass protection.

I'm considering DK Metcalf. The DL and OL players are better and arguably a bigger need. Metcalf is a great athlete, and may be a great WR, but the team added John Brown and Cole Beasley to a group that already had an improving Zay Jones and dynamic deep threat Robert Foster. Still, Metcalf has fantastic straight-line speed as a deep threat for the big-armed Josh Allen, to go with great size and soft hands. I AM worried about his agility, and that's why I don't have him as the pick, combined with the ability to immediately be a key contributor.

Oliver- Gary- J Williams

I think Buffalo waits to target receiver. 

Could go CB here as well, but I think the pick is either O line or d line

I know Bills fans want Oliver or Hockenson after talking to them but I think Dilliard could be the pick here tbh.

Zero chance it's CB.

They have White who is a top level starter, Wallace who was excellent last season as a rookie. They brought back Gaines who was very good for them in 2017, and brought in Johnson for competition. Drafting a CB early makes no sense at all

All signs point to DL. Edge rusher will be considered here, but Oliver is more likely. I went Oliver Burns Wilkins.

Agreed.

Dillard

I really want to see DK with Josh Allen

 

I mean, it would really be a dream matchup. DK's size-speed combo would be great for a Flacco or Josh Allen. Imagine teams going to dime as a base package because of the sheer speed of Buffalo's receivers and the safeties moving off the line of scrimmage to stop the deep play from happening. More Josh Allen galloping glory highlights!

 

Still, it's Ed Oliver all the way. Zay Jones improved last year, Robert Foster was dynamite once he got playing time, John Brown is a terrific deep threat and route runner in the short to intermediate part of the field. Cole Beasley is a nice addition as a safety net. This group is good enough, but they'll probably add someone at the start of day 2 to really add a potential alpha receiver. Plenty of those - AJ Brown, Nkeal Harry, Deebo Samuel, Marquise Brown, Parris Campbell, JJ Arcega-Whiteside, Terry McLaurin all could be available at that juncture.
