ESPN NFL draft analyst Todd McShay has just released his third mock draft for the 2016 NFL draft and at 19th overall he’s got the Bills landing a prospect at the deepest position in the draft.

McShay has Buffalo taking Louisville DT Sheldon Rankins at 19 overall. Here’s his analysis.

19. Buffalo Bills,

Sheldon Rankins, DT, Louisville

You have to think Rex Ryan would be pretty happy if Rankins fell to No. 19 overall. He’s not Sheldon Richardson, but the Louisville product would fill that type of role playing alongside Marcell Dareus in Ryan’s defense. Rankins has a unique combination of quickness and power for someone who weighs 299 pounds. One of the most underrated players in this class, Rankins brings a lot of scheme versatility to the table.

McShay had four defensive linemen off the board prior to Buffalo’s pick at 19.
