With the compensatory picks now awarded to the NFL clubs who qualified, we now know not only what slot the Bills will pick in each round they have a choice, but the pick overall as well. Here’s a rundown of Buffalo’s 2015 draft choices.
The Bills have six choices in all, but they are without a first-round pick and a fourth-round pick. They have a pair of draft choices in round six, with one coming from the Minnesota Vikings in the Matt Cassel trade.
Round 1 – no pick
Round 2 – 50th (18th in round)
Round 3 – 81st (17th in round)
Round 4 – no pick
Round 5 – 155th (19th in round)
Round 6 – 188th & 194th (12th – from Minn. & 18th in round)
Round 7 – 234th (17th in round)
Buffalo’s 9-7 record was tied with three other NFL clubs, Kansas City, San Diego and Houston. The Bills were last among those four clubs based on tiebreakers. The rules are with each round the four tied clubs rotate up, with the top club rotating to the bottom.
So for example, in round one Houston picked 16th, San Diego 17th, Kansas City 18th and Buffalo 19th. Come round two, Houston moves to the bottom of the group (19th) and the other three clubs slide up a spot, which is why Buffalo picks 18th in round two.
