Buffalo Bills 2021 NFL Mock Draft Roundup, 5.0

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: - Zierlein (2/4)

30. Najee Harris, RB, Alabama

The Bills took a big step forward in 2020, but they need more balance in their offense. The physical three-down runner with talent as a receiver out of the backfield could immediately upgrade not just the running game but the offense overall. - Brooks (2/1)

30. Carlos Basham Jr., EDGE, Wake Forest

The Bills' need for more speed and athleticism on defense could make the ultra-active Basham an intriguing option. The Wake Forest standout is an impressive pass rusher with an explosive first step and violent hands.

Akron Beacon Journal - Kadar (2/1)

30. Najee Harris, RB, Alabama

Buffalo's run offense is woeful. It's so bad it's allowing opposing teams to focus on stopping Josh Allen and the pass offense. Enter Harris and his tree trunk thighs.
Harris became a bell cow back for the Crimson Tide this season, carrying the ball at least 20 times in seven games. The 6'2, 230-pound Harris averaged nearly six yards a carry on his way to becoming a Heisman Trophy finalist.

The Ringer - Kelly (1/31)

30. Nick Bolton, LB, Missouri

With Matt Milano scheduled for free agency, Buffalo could stand to add some youth and talent to the linebacker spot opposite Tremaine Edmunds. Bolton is a rangy, athletic, and hard-hitting 'backer who could contribute both in base and nickel looks for the Bills.

USA Today - Davis (1/28)

30. Jeremiah Owusu-Koramoah, LB, Notre Dame

The Butkus Award winner as the country's top college linebacker and ACC defensive player of the year in 2020, he's a rangy type who could fill a number of roles as an every-down hybrid for this defense. Owusu-Koramoah will probably have to bulk up his 220-pound build, but he could be a great fit for a team that may not bring LB Matt Milano back.

ESPN - Kiper (1/26)

30. Najee Harris, RB, Alabama

Buffalo's running game was so ineffective this season that offensive coordinator Brian Daboll cooked up a few game plans that required very few runs. Josh Allen was the Bills' leading rusher in the postseason -- by 82 yards. They should upgrade with Harris, who had a dominant season for the Crimson Tide and could also help in the passing game. With rookie Zack Moss coming off an ankle injury and Devin Singletary not an every-down player, this is where the Bills can get better immediately in 2021. And we've seen rookies come in right away and make a big impact. Offensive line is a position to watch for Buffalo; I thought about Michigan offensive tackle Jalen Mayfield here. - Jeremiah (1/22)

30. Aaron Robinson, CB, UCF

The Bills have built a very complete roster. They could easily trade out of the first round and collect some extra picks. Robinson is a tall, rangy cornerback prospect with the ability to play in the slot or outside.

Baltimore Sun - Doon (1/22)

30. Wyatt Davis, IOL, Ohio State

The Bills have a handful of offensive linemen, including right tackle Daryl Williams, right guard Jon Feliciano and left guard Ike Boettger, hitting free agency. Davis didn't dominate the way he did in 2019 this season, but the All-American remains a talented player who only allowed four sacks and hits combined over the past two seasons, per PFF.
