No. 30 - G Wyatt Davis, Ohio State

The Bills will need to address guard with both Jon Feliciano and Brian Winters headed to free agency and Cody Ford coming off an injury-shortened season. Davis should recover from the leg injury he suffered against Alabama in the national championship game and can be an elite NFL interior blocker. He already has showed plenty in the way of paving the way for the Buckeyes' prolific rushing attack, something Buffalo can use on the ground.

No. 30 - LB Nick Bolton, Missouri

With Matt Milano scheduled for free agency, Buffalo could stand to add some youth and talent to the linebacker spot opposite Tremaine Edmunds. Bolton is rangy, athletic, and hard-hitting 'backer who could contribute both in base and nickel looks for the Bills.

Bolton is a compact, muscled-up linebacker with coverage instincts and a ferocious demeanor against the run. The Tigers star brings explosive burst when coming downhill, slicing through the line to hit the ballcarrier for a loss. He's savvy at keying blockers and has good field vision, showing anticipation to slip through gaps in the line. He blows up stretch runs and outside zone looks, and is made of cement as a hitter, regularly sending opponents flying off their feet. He always looks to separate the football from the ballcarrier.

No. 30 - CB Jaycee Horn, South Carolina

No. 30 - CB Tyson Campbell, Georgia

Tre White is one of the best CBs in the NFL but there's not much depth behind him. Taron Johnson is coming off a good season but has just one year left on his current deal and Campbell would add a long, physical playmaker to a secondary that improved over the course of the 2020 season

No. 30 - LB Nick Bolton, Missouri

With the long-term future of Matt Milano up in the air, depending on his price tag as he's a pending free agent, the Bills may elect to find a younger and cheaper option to pair with Tremaine Edmunds.

No. 30 - RB Najee Harris, Alabama

Buffalo's running game was so ineffective this season that offensive coordinator Brian Daboll cooked up a few game plans that required very few runs. Josh Allen was the Bills' leading rusher in the postseason -- by 82 yards. They should upgrade with Harris, who had a dominant season for the Crimson Tide and could also help in the passing game. With rookie Zack Moss coming off an ankle injury and Devin Singletary not an every-down player, this is where the Bills can get better immediately in 2021. And we've seen rookies come in right away and make a big impact. Offensive line is a position to watch for Buffalo; I thought about Michigan offensive tackle Jalen Mayfield here.

No. 30 - G Alijah Vera-Tucker, USC

We've seen Vera-Tucker grade well at both guard and tackle during his USC career, though he's a better fit at guard in the NFL. He's a smooth pass-protector and good second-level run-blocker, and 2020 showed that he could play tackle in a pinch because he allowed just eight pressures on 305 pass-blocking snaps on the season. Vera-Tucker helps the Bills maintain their solid offensive line.

No. 30 - CB Aaron Robinson, UCF

The Bills have built a very complete roster. They could easily trade out of the first round and collect some extra picks. Robinson is a tall, rangy cornerback prospect with the ability to play in the slot or outside.
