1. Mel Kiper picks these two players for the Bills in his latest mock draft

The NFL Draft is almost two weeks away and the mock draft season is in full force. In ESPN Draft Analyst Mel Kiper Jr's latest mock draft, he thinks the Bills will focus on bringing in two prospects to help out on the defensive side of the ball in the first two rounds.

30. Buffalo Bills

Azeez Ojulari, OLB/DE, Georgia

With starting defensive ends Jerry Hughes and Mario Addison over the age of 30, the Bills need to get younger on the edge. They took AJ Epenesa in Round 2 last year, but that's not enough. The speedy pass-rusher Ojulari had 8.5 sacks and three forced fumbles last season. Cornerback and running back are other positions Buffalo could target.

61. Buffalo Bills

Benjamin St-Juste, CB, Minnesota

St-Juste is raw; he started only 14 games for the Golden Gophers after transferring from Michigan. But I liked what I saw on tape. He has great length, and he's not afraid to tackle. He was also good at the Senior Bowl in January. He didn't have an interception in college, but I think that's more about him not playing much. He has the potential to be the starter in Buffalo opposite Tre'Davious White.

2. Jordan Poyer opens up about overcoming his struggles with alcohol

Earlier this year on March 13, Jordan Poyer posted to Instagram that he was one year sober. In the post, he noted his struggles with alcohol and that he didn't like the person he would become after drinking. Poyer was on The Jim Rome Show on CBS Sports Radio and explained why he wanted to share his story of overcoming his inner demons and the impact that it has had on others.

"I just wanted everybody to understand what I was going through," Poyer said. "It's a serious thing because I used alcohol to run away from all my problems and I hit a point in life where I had to figure it out. So, I stopped drinking and I had a really strong support system that helped me to do that. And so, I went a year and I felt like it was right to let people know that it's okay to ask for help. To let people know that, people that look up to me, that I'm not human and that I make mistakes as well, and that I was here for anybody that needed to reach out."

3. Bleacher Report gave the Bills this grade for their offseason moves

The Bills received another high grade for the work done on the roster so far this offseason. Bleacher Report NFL Analyst Gary Davenport graded every team before the draft and the Bills were one of five teams to receive an A grade. Here's what Davenport had to say about the team:

Buffalo Bills:

The Buffalo Bills won 13 games and made it to the AFC Championship Game last year. As such, they don't have a lot of holes, so the priority in the offseason was ensuring that more didn't appear on the roster. In that respect, the Bills had a successful offseason.

They lost veteran receiver John Brown but replacing him with Emmanuel Sanders was at least a lateral move. Linebacker Matt Milano, offensive tackle Daryl Williams and cornerback Levi Wallace were arguably Buffalo's biggest in-house free agents. All three will be back in 2021. 

If the Bills can pull off a successful draft (as Brandon Beane has done in recent years), they will have to be viewed as the biggest threat to the Kansas City Chiefs in the AFC.

Grade: A-
