2020 NFL Draft: Buffalo Bills 7-round mock

Buffalo Bills, NFL Mock Draft

The Buffalo Bills have nine picks in the 2020 NFL Draft to get better as a team. Here is the latest mock draft for the Bills. Who will Buffalo take?

You have to like what the Buffalo Bills are building under head coach Sean McDermott and general manager Brandon Beane’s watch. Since the pair arrived in Orchard Park in 2017 by way of the Carolina Panthers, Buffalo has made the AFC playoffs twice. Keep in mind this franchise hadn’t punched a ticket to the postseason since 1999 prior to their arrival.

While player development and signing the right free agents have helped turned this former laughingstock in an AFC contender, the best thing the Bills can do as a football team is to continue to build through the draft. Fortunately for Bills Mafia, Buffalo doesn’t have a ton of holes to fill in entering the 2020 NFL Draft.

Buffalo has nine picks in the first six rounds, including three in the top-100, two picks in the fifth round and three in the sixth round. While the Bills don’t have a seventh-round pick this year, they have more than enough ammunition to fill all of their draft-day needs. Buffalo needs an edge player, some help at the skill positions, some help along the offensive line and in the secondary.

There are two things the Bills have going for them right now that they haven’t had in years. Buffalo is fortunate to have a franchise quarterback it believes in with Josh Allen. The Bills also have great cohesion between ownership, the front office and the coaching staff. Here is the latest 2020 NFL mock draft for the Bills. Who are they taking to make the team better?

First Round

22

K’Lavon Chaisson

EDGE LSU Tigers

The Bills’ biggest need in the draft is to get a pass-rusher. With their first-round pick at No. 22 overall, they should take a player with a championship pedigree in K’Lavon Chaisson of the LSU Tigers. Chaisson left school early after his redshirt junior season. He won a national title in his last college game, as well as be named First-Team All-SEC in 2019.

At 6-foot-4 and 250 pounds, Chaisson has the necessary size to play multiple positions in the Bills’ pass rush. He’s probably better suited as an outside linebacker in a 3-4 scheme but may be able to thrive as a 4-3 speed-rushing defensive end. Regardless, he was quite the disruptor as the Bayou Bengals’ star pass-rusher during their latest championship run.

During his junior season at LSU, Chaisson had 60 total tackles (34 solo, 26 assists), 13.5 for a loss of yardage and 6.5 sacks in 13 games played. Had he played in all 15 games for LSU, no doubt would his numbers have been better. But in the biggest moments in high-profile ball games, Chaisson was always a player who would step up in Dave Aranda’s LSU defense.

Chaisson is a lock to go in the first round but may be off the board before the mid-20s. He could as has as the mid-teens. He may not be worth trading up a few spots, but Chaisson is the type of defensive player who Leslie Frazier can gradually work into his defensive scheme and get a productive player out of him in year one out of LSU.
