Kiper’s 2nd mock unchanged for Bills at 10

Posted by Chris Brown on February 15, 2017 – 11:11 am

He made this pick for the Bills in his first mock draft, and in his second mock draft, ESPN NFL draft analyst Mel Kiper Jr. again went quarterback for Buffalo’s pick at 10.

Kiper again selected Clemson QB DeShaun Watson for Buffalo at 10th overall. Here was his revised reasoning.

This is obviously based on the idea that Tyrod Taylor would be playing somewhere else. We’ll be able to say that definitively, one way or the other, in March. If there’s a big question here, it’s whether Watson is any more ready to start in year one than a quarterback who’s currently on the roster. I think the Bills will go a different direction if they’re able to bring in a veteran QB in March.

Kiper has just two quarterbacks going in round one with North Carolina’s Mitch Trubisky going second overall to San Francisco, just like he did in Kiper’s first mock too.

Kiper’s 1st mock has Bills taking QB at 10

Posted by Chris Brown on January 19, 2017 – 10:43 am

The quarterback position will be one of major focus this offseason for the Bills knowing there’s a decision to make on Tyrod Taylor. That decision will impact Buffalo’s direction in the draft as well. ESPN NFL draft analyst Mel Kiper Jr. issued his first mock draft and has the Bills taking a quarterback.

Kiper picked Clemson QB DeShaun Watson for Buffalo at pick 10. Here was his reasoning.

I’m a believer in franchises with new head coaches starting fresh with new quarterbacks, and it appears likely the Bills move on from Tyrod Taylor after hiring Sean McDermott. That leaves Buffalo with a huge hole and a top-10 pick to fill it. I wrote last week that I didn’t think Watson would get a post-title game draft bounce, but I’ve heard differently from people around the NFL. Though he had an up-and-down season — and threw 17 interceptions — Watson is extremely talented. He’s the second quarterback off the board in this projection, ahead of Notre Dame’s DeShone Kizer.
