Bills Today: Who'd Buffalo take in latest two-round mock?


1 - Who'd Buffalo take in latest two-round mock?
'Tis the season, as the conference championships are set, a majority of the teams in the NFL are looking forward to the 2018 NFL Draft. The draft is over three months away, but Bleacher Report’s Matt Miller just released his most recent mock draft to keep you informed.

This two-round mock draft sees the Bills making four selections, which is half of their picks in this year's draft. They have two first-round picks and two second-round selections. Here's who they're projected to pick. ![](

The Bills have back-to-back picks in the first-round. They'll draft 21st and 22nd overall, thanks to last year's draft-day deal with the Chiefs.

With those picks, Miller has Buffalo taking LB Rashaan Evans from Alabama and OT Mike McGlinchey from Notre Dame. Here's his analysis on those potential first-round picks.

The offensive line needs to be addressed. Rookie left tackle Dion Dawkins did a solid job, but the right side needs an upgrade. Notre Dame's Mike McGlinchey played left tackle for the last two seasons, but has the athleticism of a right tackle and the experience to play there. He would be a rookie starter.

The Bills linebacker corps is solid, but it's missing a true middle linebacker with range and the ability to make major stops against the run. Rashaan Evans has the football IQ, athleticism and instincts to be a game-changer on defense.

Evans and McGlinchey cap off the first-round for Buffalo, but the fun doesn't stop there. The team also has two more picks in the second-round.

At 53rd overall, the Bills are projected to pick another Alabama man, DL Da'Shawn Hand. He just concluded his senior season winning a National Championship with the Crimson Tide.

Buffalo also owns the 56th overall pick from the Los Angeles Rams. They're slated to select TE Mark Andrews from Oklahoma. This season, he reeled in 62 receptions, 958 yards, and eight touchdowns.

These players, who all come from successful football schools, would make for a pleasant start to this year's draft. However, draft day is nearly 100 days away. A lot can change between now until then. 

2 - Tre' White among PFWA award winners
Bills cornerback, Tre'Davious White, had countless achievements in his rookie year. That list continues to grow, as he was just named to the All-Rookie defense by Pro Football Writers of America.

The All-Rookie defense includes: Derek Barnett (Eagles), Myles Garrett (Browns), Carl Lawson (Bengals), Dalvin Tomlinson (Giants), Jarrad Davis (Lions), Reuben Foster (49ers), T.J. Watt (Steelers), Marshon Lattimore (Saints), White (Bills), Jamal Adams (Jets), and Marcus Williams (Saints).

By now, everyone knows the sensational stats White produced this season. He led all rookies with 18 passes defended. That attributed to him being only one of two NFL players with 18 passes defended, four interceptions, and two fumble recoveries. 

White's received accolade after accolade during his first year in Buffalo. First it was Defensive Rookie of the month in September, then Pro Football Focus’ Rookie of the Year, and now he's a PFWA All-Rookie defender.

Relive memorable Bills versus Dolphins games throughout the years.

3 - What happened 25-years-ago today?
There's a banner hanging at One Bills Drive thanks to a victory 25-years-ago today. On Jan. 17, 1993, the Bills defeated the Dolphins in the AFC Championship game.

In front of 72,703 people, Buffalo manhandled Miami by a score of 29-10 to advance to their third-straight Super Bowl.

Bills kicker, Steve Christie, connected on five field goals in the game. He single-handedly outscored the opposition. 

Buffalo's offense and defense complemented each other well, as the team's 13-3 lead at halftime proved to be enough. The Bills 'D', anchored by Bruce Smith and Cornelius Bennett, tallied four sacks and an incredible four fumble recoveries. They also intercepted Miami's Dan Marino two times.

Offensively, the Bills were led by quarterback Jim Kelly and running backs Kenneth Davis and Thurman Thomas. Kelly went 17-of-24 passing for 177 yards and one touchdown. He was a perfect seven-for-seven passing in the second half. Davis and Thomas provided a dominant one-two punch on the ground. Combined they tallied 279 yards from scrimmage and each reached the end zone once, as Buffalo rolled to their third consecutive AFC title.
