Though it took a little longer than the first installment of the series, the second edition of Pro Football Focus’ “3 For 3” mock draft series recently took place over the course of a couple weeks. Like the first mock, which was held just following the NFL Scouting Combine in early March, I continued to act as the drafter in charge of the Buffalo Bills.

There was no need to do anything different with the No. 9 overall pick, as a player who fills one of Buffalo’s biggest needs—and just might be the best all-around player in the draft—was still available as a right tackle upgrade.

On Day 2, the Bills were forced to change course. While BYU linebacker Kyle Van Noy and Stanford guard David Yankey might have been the selections once again as they represent great values in the draft’s second and third rounds, both were rightfully selected earlier this time around.

The Buffalo Bills finally landed the veteran wide receiver help they were looking for when they traded a sixth-round pick to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers for Mike Williams on Friday.

The trade seems like a win-win move for both teams. The Buccaneers were ready to move on from Williams, who comes in with a history of off-field trouble and was recently stabbed in the thigh, and likely would have released him if unable to secure a trade partner. If he can keep himself on the right path, however, the Bills acquired a starting-caliber wideout at a low cost.

After trading out of the top 10 in last year’s NFL draft, the Buffalo Bills might be looking to move up this year.

In this week’s “Read Option” column for Bleacher Report, Pompei wrote that the Houston Texans are “trying hard to deal the first pick in the draft,” and that “they might have a trade partner in the Bills, who appear interested in moving up.”
