Buffalo Bills 2022 Mock Draft Roundup 4.0

Throughout the year and leading up to the 2022 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 Buffalo Bills Mock Draft Database.

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

SI - Kevin Hanson (2/17)

25. Trent McDuffie, CB, Washington

Levi Wallace led Buffalo's corners in snaps played and will be an unrestricted free agent next month. Meanwhile, the team's top cornerback (Tre'Davious White) is recovering from a torn ACL. While you can never have too many talented cornerbacks, McDuffie could be off the board much earlier than this and would be a wise choice for the Bills.

Yahoo! Sports - Eric Edholm (2/17)

25. Jordan Davis, IDL, Georgia

There will be debates in draft rooms across America, trying to figure out the sweet spot for Davis. Back in the day, he might have been a top-10 pick. But how much value is there now for a massive, space-devouring nose tackle who averaged 25 snaps per game? The Bills have a decent nucleus up front but could unleash Ed Oliver more as a three-technique and let the 6-foot-6, 365-pound Davis occupy blockers and shut down the run game.

Draft Wire - Luke Easterling (2/17)

25. DeMarvin Leal, IDL, Texas A&M

The Bills have a surprising amount of needs for a perennial playoff contender, so this pick will be about maximizing value at any number of positions. This scenario gives them the chance to add an athletic, versatile playmaker for the interior of their defensive line in Leal, who has limitless upside.

ESPN - Todd McShay (2/16)

25. Andrew Booth Jr., CB, Clemson

The Bills' depth issues at cornerback were made very clear once Tre'Davious White got injured. Things aren't about to get better, either, with Levi Wallace hitting the open market. If Buffalo can find a solid CB2 opposite White, with Jordan Poyer and Micah Hyde patrolling at safety, the secondary would be downright scary. Booth is a press corner with a smooth backpedal and great ball skills, but he can play off-man and zone, too. He picked off three passes in 2021 for the Tigers and would fit in nicely with a team ready to win a Super Bowl.

Fox Sports - Rob Rang (2/16)

25. Jordan Davis, IDL, Georgia

The Bills surrendered 19 touchdowns on the ground last season. To put that in perspective, the four teams that allowed more -- the Lions, Chargers, Jaguars and Jets -- lost an average of 12 games.

Defensive-minded coach Sean McDermott might appreciate a monster in the middle, such as the massive Davis to help shore up one of the few glaring holes for this Super Bowl contender.

USA Today - Nate Davis (2/15)

25. Arnold Ebiketie, EDGE, Penn State

He had eight sacks among 52 QB pressures in 2021. Buffalo's aging D-line is poised to be stripped of its depth in free agency, but Ebiketie and 2021 rookies Greg Rousseau and Boogie Basham could form a next-gen nucleus up front.

The Ringer - Danny Kelly (2/15)

25. Jahan Dotson, WR, Penn State

With 32-year old Cole Beasley getting a bit old for the position and 34-year old Emmanuel Sanders slated for free agency (and also getting old), the Bills opt here to upgrade their already strong pass catcher corps. Dotson can play all over the formation, runs sharp routes, and perfectly complements the team's Stefon DiggsGabriel Davis duo. Getting more playmakers for Josh Allen can't be a bad thing.

The Draft Scout - Matt Miller (2/14)

25. Jameson Williams, WR, Alabama

A potential top 10 pick before an ACL injury in the national championship game, Jameson Williams falls into a great situation with the Bills. His speed--before and after the catch--will open this offense up and allow the team to move on from pending free agents at the receiver position. - Chad Reuter (2/14)

25. Andrew Booth Jr., CB, Clemson

Levi Wallace is a pending free agent and Tre'Davious White is coming off an injury, so grabbing an athletic, NFL-sized corner like Booth is an easy projection.

PFF - Mike Renner (2/14)

25. Trent McDuffie, CB, Washington

McDuffie is the best pure zone corner in the class and one heck of a tackler. That would fit in perfectly with the Bills. The 5-foot-11, 195-pound corner missed only six of 101 tackle attempts in his career.
