Buffalo Bills 2023 Mock Draft Roundup 1.0

Throughout the year and leading up to the 2023 NFL Draft, we will update our Buffalo Bills Mock Draft Roundup showing picks for the Buffalo Bills from several prominent sites and draft analysts.

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

The Athletic - Dane Brugler (5/3)

32. Jordan Addison, WR, Pittsburgh

Last year's Biletnikoff Award winner as the nation's top receiver, Addison benefited from Kenny Pickett's jump in production. He is currently deciding on a potential transfer destination, but regardless of where he plays in 2022, the NFL will be interested in his talent.

Draft Wire - Luke Easterling (5/3)

31. Jarrett Patterson, IOL, Notre Dame

The interior of this offensive line could use some work. While guard is a bigger need than center at the moment, Patterson could start at that spot before sliding inside if the Bills ever need to replace Mitch Morse, who just turned 30.

Fox Sports - Jason McIntyre (5/3)

32. Marvin Mims, WR, Oklahoma

The Sooners had a ton of departures after Lincoln Riley left, but Mims stuck around, and he'll be WR1 in Norman after catching 14 TDs in his first two seasons.

PFF - Michael Renner (5/2)

32. Paris Johnson Jr., OT, Ohio State

Johnson will be Ohio State's left tackle this season after starting at right guard in 2020. That's the position where the 6-foot-6, 315-pounder is a more natural fit. He earned a 79.1 overall grade as a redshirt freshman in his first year as a starter in 2021.

CBS - Ryan Wilson (5/2)

32. Jordan Battle, S, Alabama

Battle was another player who returned to school even though he was draft eligible. He doesn't possess otherworldly athleticism but he's incredibly consistent, and right-place, right-time players are coveted at the next level.

The Draft Network - Joe Marino (4/30)

32. Jordan Battle, S, Alabama

The Bills' roster is outstanding but is also becoming quite expensive so it could be challenging for Buffalo to meet Jordan Poyer's contract demands. Jordan Battle is an intelligent player that can offer versatility, ball skill, physicality, and athleticism that can help fill the void should Poyer not be retained.

The 33rd Team - Michael Schottey (4/30)

32. Peter Skoronski, OT, Northwestern

The Bills have invested a ton into their offense over the past couple of seasons, and if they're picking No. 32 in our final 2023 NFL Mock Draft, that means it's all worked out. The offensive line still needs some work, however, and Skoronski gives them one of the most battle tested and polished offensive linemen in the nation.

Pro Football Network - Cam Mellor (4/30)

32. Cameron Latu, TE, Alabama

First things first, we have to address the fact that the odds have the Buffalo Bills winning the Super Bowl in this 2023 NFL Mock Draft. So, if the odds (or Kyle Brandt) are to be believed, the defending Super Bowl champs address a hole at tight end with the selection of Cameron Latu.

He came on strong last season as a pass catcher, but Latu is more than just an inline receiver. Latu had 8 touchdowns and showcased an ability to line up all over the Alabama offense. Today's NFL tight ends aren't required to do everything, and Latu can improve his blocking. But his receiving prowess is certainly enough for first-round consideration.

Barstool Sports - Steven Cheah (4/30)

32. Bijan Robinson, RB, Texas

The Bills took James Cook in the Draft this year, but he's more of a 3rd down back. Robinson can help carry the mail in Buffalo.
