Post-Senior Bowl Mock Draft Roundup for Bills' first-round picks

A number of national outlets have posted new mock drafts in the aftermath of the college all-star games, including last weekend's Senior Bowl. Here is a sampling of some mock drafts and who they have the Bills selecting at Nos. 21 and 22 in the first round.

CBS Sports 

No. 21, Mason Rudolph, QB, Oklahoma State

This pick makes too much sense to tweak right now. The Bills like experienced prospects — as evidenced by their 2017 draft haul — and Rudolph gives Buffalo pocket-passing ability with a familiarity in modern spread offenses that feature plenty of run-pass option. Brian Daboll is happy with this pick.

No. 22, Ogbonnia Okoronkwo, OLB, Oklahoma

Okoronkwo isn't your father's 4-3 defensive end at 6-1 and 240 pounds, and that's ok. He's an explosive speed-rusher who demonstrates the ability to dip around the edge and bend to the quarterback. The Oklahoma star has a large arsenal of pass-rushing moves too. He can man the SAM spot in Buffalo's front.

No. 21, Harrison Phillips, DT, Stanford

With the quarterbacks all gone, the Bills may look to rebuild their defense in the first round of this year’s draft. Phillips is the type of run-stopping defensive tackle the Bills lack.

No. 22, Derwin James, S, Florida State

It’s hard to peg a good spot for James high in the first round if a team like the Raiders pass on him. In Buffalo he would play more of a linebacker role that utilizes his athleticism and blitzing.

No. 21, Mason Rudolph, QB, Oklahoma State

If Sean McDermott values prototypical traits and intangibles in his QB1, Rudolph could be the guy for the Bills. The Oklahoma State star is a natural leader with the tools to be a long-time starter in the league.

No. 22, Josh Jackson, CB, Iowa

A defense can never have enough ball-hawking cornerbacks with the size to match up with the league's big receivers.

 

No. 21, Billy Price, C, Ohio State

Price is a tremendously powerful drive blocker who can fill the void left by the injury to Eric Wood.

No. 22, Rashaan Evans, LB, Alabama 

Evans has some injury concerns, but he's physical and fast. He can play inside or outside linebacker while also offering pass-rush help.
