Buffalo went to the playoffs last season for the first time since 1999; now they're more likely to earn the top-overall pick by Ryan Wilson @ryanwilson_07 moments ago • 7 min read The Bills won nine games last season and advanced to the playoffs for the first time since 1999. So there were reasons for optimism this offseason -- fix the offensive line, add a playmaking wide receiver and find a franchise quarterback and Buffalo could build on its '17 success. After a demoralizing loss the Ravens in the season opener, the Bills could have a better chance at the first-overall pick in the 2019 NFL Draft than playing football in January.

The Tigers' mammoth defensive linemen plays with rare athleticism, refined skill for a 6-foot-4, 350-pounder by Chris Trapasso @ChrisTrapasso CBSSports.com 48s ago • 8 min read Dexter Lawrence has looked ready for the NFL since his true freshman season at Clemson in 2016, and it's time we start taking him more seriously as a top-half-of-the-first-round prospect.The former No. 2 recruit overall in the nation is a colossal presence on the interior at 6-4 and 350 pounds, but he plays like he's about 6-1, 320. Against Texas A&M, Lawrence could not be blocked, and an argument can be made that he was most effective quickly moving down the line of scrimmage on stretch runs, which is something most 330-plus pounders have trouble doing. The pass-rush moves are there too.Here's my updated Top 20 prospect list after Week 2 in college football. 1.

As soon as the 2018 NFL Draft was completed, experts were publishing their “too early” 2019 mock drafts. A year ago those drafts likely didn’t include the 2018 first overall pick Baker Mayfield. It goes to show that as much as pre-draft rankings matter, the final year of tape is the biggest factor in evaluating a player’s draft stock. Week 1 of the college football season was an exciting one and gave NFL draft fans a look at what are believed to be the nation’s top players. This list includes five players that impacted their draft stock the most.

Here's how the 2018 NFL Draft played out for the Buffalo Bills by Jason La Canfora @JasonLaCanfora 30s ago • 20 min read ORCHARD PARK, NY – The genesis of the Buffalo Bills' potentially epic 2018 draft can be traced back 51 weeks prior to them actually selecting quarterback Josh Allen and linebacker Tremaine Edmunds both within the first 16 picks on that hectic Thursday night.The concept of being in position to grab a quarterback at the top of that draft was something coach Sean McDermott began discussing with general manager Brandon Beane shortly after the GM was hired last May 9, with their veteran starter, Tyrod Taylor, perhaps destined to be a mere bridge guy in Buffalo and not the solution at quarterback.
