Buffalo Bills Draft Watch and Potential Targets

3

As the /buffalo-bills/” rel=””>Buffalo Bills are looking to fill some important holes for the upcoming season. Since Rex Ryan’s defense struggled last season, a main focus will be finding weapons among a very defense-heavy 2016 draft class. Considering the departure of free agent LB Nigel Bradham, DE Mario Williams, and the growing age of DT Kyle Williams, talented pass rushers and run stoppers will be a main priority for the Bills. Here are some viable options for the Bills to consider with their spot at 19:

/nfl-draft/scouting-reports-database/2016-draft-prospects/defensive-lineman/jarran-reed-2016-nfl-draft-scouting-report-r75/” rel=””>Jarran Reed, 6’3″ 307 lbs, DT, Alabama

Reed is a destructive force with a big body to stop the run, and has a good mix of size and athleticism. He would fit well in Ryan’s defensive scheme, and would add some greatly-needed depth on the defensive line.

/nfl-draft/scouting-reports-database/2016-draft-prospects/wide-receiver/laquon-treadwell-r15/” rel=””>Laquon Treadwell, 6’2″ 221 lbs, WR, Ole Miss

Treadwell is arguably the best wide receiver in this year’s draft. He has a huge catching radius and incredible 50/50 ball talent. Some compare him to Dez Bryant, but shows more maturity for his age. Given the draft’s excess of quality defensive players, Treadwell could possibly fall and be available for the Bills.
