Draft Grade: A Second Act
The Bills have had to transform their team in the last year due to all sorts of circumstances, some voluntary, some out of their control. It looks like they found their QB of the future, and now they need to keep him healthy and find him weapons.
How much of that was accomplished in this draft is up for debate, but at least they didn’t reach for need. Oliver has some legit questions surrounding him, but you can’t pass him up when he is there at 9. They will find a way to use him according to his skills.
Ford was a much needed addition. They brought in a convention center full of offensive line prospects, but besides at right tackle, none are set. Ford will get the opportunity to audition at several positions.
Adding two tight ends will help their young QB. And both should make the team.
Singletary will be real interesting to watch. He looked great on tape, but bad during testing.
This draft was a good second wave of development for the Bills moving in the right direction.
