The Buffalo Bills made it to the AFC Championship game but fell short. Now the Bills need to take a look and see the holes in the roster to push them past the rest.
Pick 30: Aaron Robinson CB, UCF
Robinson was a highly recruited high school recruit who went to Alabama and transferred to UCF to be closer to home. Robinson is a perfect zone corner in which the Bills run a zone scheme. He is not afraid to mix into the run game and tackle bigger players. Robinson will be in the mix to start opposite All-Pro Tre White.
Pick 62: Amom-RA St. Brown WR, USC
St. Brown is an underrated wide receiver in this class due to playing on the West coast and later games due to Covid. St. Brown has great body control, and that helps him excel in route running, which the Bills place a lot of emphasis on. St. Brown could be taking over the John Brown role if the Bills decide to move on from him this offseason for cap reasons.

Pick 93: Patrick Jones II EDGE, Pittsburg
Jones is the ideal fit for a 4-3 scheme at the end position. He has racked up 17.5 sacks in a 22-game span at Pittsburg. Jones would fit nicely in a rotation that the Bills use for their defensive line.
Pick 160: Justin Hillard LB, Ohio State
Hillard is an undersized linebacker who is above average in coverage skills. With the likely hood that the Bills lose Matt Milano in free agency, there will be a need. Hillard could benefit from more time in the weight room and build up his frame. Hillard could push for the weakside linebacker position this season.
Pick 173: Jaret Patterson RB, Buffalo
Patterson came into his junior season with high expectations and he delivered in a big way. Patterson was able to rush for over 1000 yards and 18 touchdowns in four games. His breakout game against Kent State when he rushed for 409 yards and tying an NCAA record with eight touchdowns. Patterson could be in the mix for playing time as the Bills coaches stated they need to improve their run game next season.
Pick 202: Tre Norwood CB, Oklahoma
Norwood has shown the versatility to play outside or in the slot during his college career. For his height, he needs to work on building muscle mass. Norwood, with his ability to play outside or inside, gives him a good chance to make the roster this season.
