No. 22 - EDGE Yetur Gross-Matos, Penn State

Four Bills had at least five sacks in 2019, and two were defensive tackles—Jordan Phillips (9.5) and Ed Oliver (5.0)—and another (Shaq Lawson, 6.5) will be a free agent in March. Meanwhile, both Jerry Hughes and Trent Murphy are already or will turn 30 this year. With his length, agility and first step, Gross-Matos has been a productive pass rusher for Penn State with 17 sacks and 34.5 tackles for loss combined over the past two seasons.

No. 22 - WR Laviska Shenault Jr., Colorado

If Josh Allen's devil-may-care approach is to be harnessed into a more tenable style of play, the quarterback needs a well-built receiver on the outside. Enter Shenault, a dynamic threat who's tough to bring down in the open field and would be an intriguing piece for offensive coordinator Brian Daboll.

No. 22 - WR Tee Higgins, Clemson

John Brown can stretch the field and Cole Beasley can man the slot, but Josh Allen needs a big downfield target. At 6-4, Higgins is that and then some; he high-points the ball better than anyone in this class and Allen would certainly welcome him to Buffalo. The Clemson standout, who battled injuries in the Fiesta Bowl and the national title game, had his best showing of the season in the ACC title game, hauling in nine passes for 182 yards and three touchdowns.

No. 22 - WR Tee Higgins, Clemson

The Bills need to add a big-bodied playmaker. Higgins is a jump-ball specialist.

No. 22 - EDGE A.J. Epenesa, Iowa

Hard-hat-and-lunch-pail player with enough pass-rush skills to make immediate contributions as a rookie starter.

No. 22 - WR Laviska Shenault Jr., Colorado

The Buffalo Bills need to score more points in 2020 and being able to do that is partly reliant on there being more offensive playmakers around Josh Allen. Laviska Shenault is exactly that. He brings size, speed and physicality to the receiving corps which is something the group currently lacks. Shenault can fill and upgrade the Isaiah McKenzie role in the offense where he's used on jet motion, sweeps, shuffle passes and quick targets. Shenault can also win vertically down the field with alpha traits at the catch point. He'll help the offense stay on schedule and produce.

No. 22 - Henry Ruggs III, Alabama

John Brown can stretch the field and Cole Beasley can man the slot, but Josh Allen needs another downfield target. Ruggs is one of the fastest players on the Alabama roster and he's a threat to take it to the house from anywhere on the field.

No. 22 - WR Tee Higgins, Clemson

What do you give a big-armed quarterback with spotty accuracy? I suggest a big, downfield wideout with good ball skills and an incredible catch radius.

No. 22 - EDGE Yetur Gross-Matos, Penn State

A pass rush upgrade will be fighting wide receiver help early on the Bills' draft board. Gross-Matos (6-5, 242 pounds) is a well-built, explosive and versatile defender who can thrive in Sean McDermott and Leslie Frazier's 4-3 scheme with Lorenzo Alexander retiring and Shaq Lawson a pending free agent.
