Buffalo Bills Mock Draft Watch 5.0 | 2024


No. 28 – DT Jer'Zahn Newton, Illinois

Buffalo gets some help for the interior D-line with Newton, but Florida State's Braden Fiske and Michigan's Kris Jenkins could be possibilities here, too.

No. 28 – CB T.J. Tampa, Iowa State

Buffalo has turned over its safety position, with Jordan Poyer signing in Miami and Micah Hyde still unsigned, but it also must find a way to add talent at cornerback. The organization is up against the salary cap, so the draft likely will be the best way to do that. Kaiir Elam, a first-round pick in 2022, was a healthy scratch at times last season, and he ended up playing in just three games. Could they find a starter this late in Round 1? I think so.

Tampa leveled up in 2023, allowing only one touchdown as the nearest defender in coverage. Recovery from a hamstring injury prevented him from working out at the combine, but I see really solid speed and traits on tape. If the Bills decide to go offense with this selection, a wide receiver to replace Gabe Davis could be the play.

No. 28 – DB Cooper DeJean, Iowa

The Bills lost a couple of key players in their secondary due to their cap situation. I like Dejean's game. He's versatile and a ballhawk, a true Swiss army knife kind of player. That would benefit a changing secondary in Buffalo.

No. 28 – WR Adonai Mitchell, Texas

He's a big, explosive pass catcher who can dominate at all three levels.

No. 28 – DL Darius Robinson, Missouri

Wide receiver was the Buffalo Bills' biggest need going into the offseason, but the additions of Curtis Samuel and Mack Hollins could allow them to go elsewhere in Round 1. Plus, they missed out on the top five receivers in this class, so it might make more sense to wait until Round 2.

Darius Robinson would be a fantastic fit in Buffalo because he can play multiple positions on the defensive line and rush the passer. He's only getting better and would help Buffalo's run defense immediately.

No. 28 – WR Brian Thomas Jr., LSU

This is a very common pairing, but after moving on from Gabe Davis, the Bills need a consistent field-stretcher. Thomas ran a 4.33-second 40-yard dash at 209 pounds — so, yeah, he'll do.

No. 28 – WR Keon Coleman, Florida State

He has an immense performance ceiling that will force a hefty amount of targets early in his career.

No. 28 – DL Kris Jenkins, Michigan

The Bills ranked 28th in yards per attempt allowed on the ground and, entering the offseason, Ed Oliver is their only defensive tackle under contact. Michigan's Kris Jenkins would be an ideal fit, and it's worth noting Brandon Beane was in Carolina when the Panthers drafted his father.

No. 28 – WR Adonai Mitchell, Texas

Mitchell could walk into camp and win a big part of the offense as the player that Davis never became: a big speed threat who can actually run some routes, win some underneath reps, and create at all three levels.

No. 28 - S Tyler Nubin, Minnesota
