The 2020 NFL Draft is nearly upon us, so let’s take a look at what the Buffalo Bills could have planned with this seven-round mock draft.
As we inch closer to the 2020 NFL Draft, we continue to get a clearer picture of which prospects NFL teams could look to add to their roster heading into the 2020 season. Rumors are flying but every team is chasing one thing, a Lombardi trophy, and success in the draft is critical to realizing that dream.
In a time-honored tradition unlike any other, I have decided to add another 100 percent accurate mock draft to the Internet archives. As always, remember that I harbor only seething hatred for your favorite team. That is why in order to save all of the FanSided commenters precious time, I’ve decided to include these helpful pre-written insults to hurl at me in the comments section. Feel free to copy and paste away!
- What are you thinking??!! The [insert team] would never pick [insert player] in [insert round]!

To make things easier on myself, I have enlisted the help of The Draft Network’s trusty Mock Draft Machine, which I highly recommend for all draft fans out there. And now without further ado, here is your seven-round 2020 mock draft for the Buffalo Bills.
P.S. – I hope everyone out there is staying as safe and healthy as possible. We’re all in this together.
1st round – No selections
WR, Fighting Irish
The Bills invested heavily on the defensive side of the ball in free agency, which could leave the door open to focusing primarily on the offense in the draft. Bringing in Stefon Diggs from the Vikings was an excellent kickstart that would pair well with a player like Chase Claypool in round two.
Claypool was a star at the 2020 NFL Draft Combine and is likely to hear his name called by the end of round two. He has outstanding size and speed, and some analysts had been speculating about a possible move to tight end before he posted testing numbers as good as any other receiver in the class.
The Bills could stand to use Claypool as a weapon in the red zone, capable of creating plenty of mismatches out of the slot. In addition to his ability to catch the ball, Claypool is tenacious as a blocker and is the type of player who can really be a tone-setter for the offense and get teammates fired up with a pancake against a mismatched defensive back.
