With the 2017 NFL draft nearly here, we look at the four most likely options for the Buffalo Bills to select with the 10th pick in the first round.
Anticipation is building for the Buffalo Bills and their fans, with the 2017 NFL draft less than two weeks away. This year’s edition will take place in Philadelphia, for the first time since 1961.
With the Bills eager to end a playoff drought which now totals 17 years, the draft will prove to be a vital step in achieving this goal. One of the biggest questions remains who they will take in the first round, which represents the best chance of finding that next superstar.
Yes, there’s always the chance of finding a hidden gem in the later rounds, with Andre Reed (4th round ) and Howard Ballard (11th round) being two of the prime examples for the Bills. However, the first round still provides the highest probability, as the franchise looks for the next Jim Kelly or Bruce Smith.
For the Bills, the needs are many, including wide receiver, linebacker, cornerback and safety. You can arguably also include quarterback on this list, after the front office restructured Tyrod Taylor‘s contract to give themselves an out after next season.
This year, the Bills will be drafting 10th overall in the first round. Going with the assumption they will not trade out of this position, along with who we predict will still be available, here are the four most likely candidates to end up in Western New York.
