Buffalo Bills Mock Draft Roundup, 3.0

Throughout the year and leading up to the 2021 NFL draft, we will update our Buffalo Bills Mock Draft Roundup showing picks for the Buffalo Bills from several prominent sites and draft analysts.

For a more inclusive lists of mock drafts for the Buffalo Bills, check out our 2021 Buffalo Bills Mock Draft Database.

The following are picks in recent mock drafts for the Bills:

EDSFootball - Hanson (1/1)

30. Wyatt Davis, IOL, Ohio State

After making significant improvements in his second season (2019), Josh Allen has made even bigger strides in year three. His 69.1% completion rate, 6.2% TD%, 1.6% INT%, 7.9 Y/A and 106.4 passer rating all shatter previous career highs. Stefon Diggs is having a career year with an NFL-best 120 catches and 1,459 yards. Several of the team's offensive linemen -- guards Jon Feliciano and Brian Winters and right tackle Daryl Williams -- are scheduled to become free agents in 2021, however, and Davis is my top-ranked guard prospect.

San Diego Union Tribune (12/31)

31. Jalen Mayfield, OT, Michigan

Dominant right tackle Daryl Williams is one of three starting offensive lineman headed for free agency. Mayfield features the athletic ability and size combo that makes offensive line coaches salivate.

Touchdown Wire - Schofield (12/31)

30. Eric Stokes, CB, Georgia

We all know that Tre'Davious White is one of the league's best cornerbacks. Opposite him this season has been more of a question mark. Buffalo have used Levi Wallace in that role, but Wallace is probably best suited to slide inside to the slot. To do that you need a sticky, man-coverage cornerback with press coverage skills.

Buffalo gets that in Eric Stokes. The Bulldogs ask him to play press coverage, which is a critical skill for cornerbacks to have when they transition to the pro game. He moves well with solid change-of-direction skills, and his combination of size and length will make him a factor in the red zone and on critical passing downs.

PFF - Gayle (12/29)

28. Asante Samuel Jr., CB, Florida State

What Samuel lacks in size, he makes up for in athleticism and positional versatility. He's an instinctive player who doesn't shy away from contact if positioned in the slot or the box, and his movement skills give him an advantage over a lot of outside receivers when lined up at cornerback. He likely projects as a slot cornerback or safety at the next level at just 5-foot-10, 184 pounds, but he's earned the best PFF coverage grade (82.8) of his career playing outside cornerback for FSU this season.

CBS Sports - Wilson (12/29)

28. Jeremiah Owusu-Koramoah, LB, Notre Dame

Owusu-Koramoah is a tweener, which is why some NFL teams view him as a safety and not a linebacker. Above all else, he's an athlete and Sean McDermott and Leslie Frazier will find ways to get him on the field.

Pro Football Network - Miller (12/26)

28. Tyson Campbell, CB, Georgia

As was Kendrick, Campbell is an upside pick at the cornerback spot. The 2020 season was his first as a full-time player for Georgia, and he is still growing technically. But he is one of the faster players in this class, and his frame is ideal for the position.

He's endlessly long, isn't afraid to be physical at the line, and has the fluidity in his hips necessary to mirror receivers in and out of breaks. Campbell simply needs to be better at learning to work and understand leverage and overall positioning in man coverage.

Getting a complement to Tre'Davious White is a glaring need for the Bills, who have one of the more complete rosters in football.

PFF - Renner (12/23)

30. Alijah Vera-Tucker, IOL, USC

While his performance against Kayvon Thibodeaux in the Pac-12 Championship Game -- in which he allowed six total pressures -- made it fairly clear his best position is guard, the fact that he allowed only two pressures in the five games outside of that at left tackle was incredibly impressive. The Bills have thrown everything at the guard position this year, with little in the way of results.

Bleacher Report - Miller (12/22)

28. Wyatt Davis, IOL, Ohio State

The Bills' interior offensive line has been a bit of a puzzle this year. Davis would stop the shuffling by securing the right guard spot for the next five years or more. He's powerful, smart, agile and the type of ass-kicker the Bills will love up front.
