Of the Buffalo Bills’ six selections in the 2015 NFL draft, they very well might have saved their best for last. With the selection of Central Arkansas wide receiver Dezmin Lewis at the No. 234 overall pick, the Bills landed one of the draft’s top small-school talents, and a playmaker with size who could prove to be a seventh-round steal.

When the Buffalo Bills traded for Minnesota Vikings quarterback Matt Cassel in March, they sent the No. 137 overall pick in the draft—which they had previously acquired from the Tampa Bay Buccaneers—and a 2016 seventh-round pick to Minnesota in exchange for Cassel and a sixth-round pick. That sixth-round pick, No. 188 overall, gave the Bills two selections in Round 6, the only round in the 2015 NFL draft (barring a trade for an additional seventh-round pick) in which they have multiple draft choices.

The Bills used the No. 188 overall selection to select Tony Steward, a linebacker from Clemson. Six picks later, the Bills used the No. 194 overall selection to select Nick O’Leary, a tight end from Florida State.

Through six rounds, the Bills have made five selections in total, and every single one of them has been from the Atlantic Coast Conference. Three of those five players—O’Leary, second-round pick Ronald Darby and fifth-round pick Karlos Williams—played their college football for the Seminoles.

If there was one position the Buffalo Bills absolutely had to address in this year’s draft, regardless of whether they were getting the best player available at the selection, it was guard. After having turnstiles at both the left and right guard position in 2014, the Bills’ starting spots at the position remain wide open.

That makes it likely that their third-round pick in this year’s draft, John Miller, will be a starter right away for the Bills in his rookie season. A four-year starter at Louisville, Miller should be up to the task.

Friday, May 1st, 2015

BBD Contributor: Brian Krosky

Thursday night came and passed as the first round of the 2015 NFL Draft came to a conclusion. The Buffalo Bills did not make a selection, having traded their first- and fourth-round picks in their move up for Sammy Watkins in last year’s draft, so they will make their first two picks of the draft Friday, on Day 2.

It’s imperative that the Bills get value in the limited picks they have this year. Here is a look, before they make their first picks on Friday, at how they could obtain that value with their six selections between Rounds 2 and 7.

Buffalo Bills 2015 Schedule Announced

Tuesday, April 21st, 2015

BBD Editor: Dan Hope

The Buffalo Bills’ schedule for their 16-game 2015 NFL regular season was announced Tuesday.

New coach Rex Ryan and the Bills will open the season at home against the Indianapolis Colts on Sunday, Sept. 13 at 1 p.m. ET. They will remain at home for Week 2, when Rex and the Bills will have their first of two opportunities this season to play the defending champion New England Patriots at 1 p.m. ET on Sunday, Sept. 20.

The second game against the New England Patriots, set for Nov. 23 (Week 11), is also notable in that it will be the Bills’ first appearance on ESPN’s Monday Night Football since 2009. That game will be part of a back-to-back set of midseason weekday primetime games, as the Bills will play Rex Ryan’s former team, the New York Jets, on NFL Network’s Thursday Night Football, in Week 10 (Nov. 12). Both of those games—the Bills’ only night contests this year—will be played on the road.

The Bills’ game against the Jacksonville Jaguars in London, which will be the first game to streamed as a digital-only worldwide broadcast, is set for Oct. 25 (Week 7) at 9:30 a.m. ET.

In Week 14, the Bills will travel to Philadelphia to play the Eagles (Dec. 13, 1 p.m. ET), a game in which new Bills running back LeSean McCoy and new Eagles linebacker Kiko Alonso will square off against their former teams.

Finally, the Bills will close the season against the Jets at home on Jan. 3 at 1 p.m. ET.

The Bills’ full schedule for the 2015 season is below.
