With few holes the Bills looked to add pass rushers and found Miami's Rousseau and Wake's Bashem available at the end of the first two rounds. Both are size/speed types that flash but have glaring weaknesses in their games. That said, both are good finishers if they get an clear path to the ball carrier.
OL Brown and Doyle were two of the most athletic lineman in this class but considered projects from a strength and technique point. WR Stevenson is a solid late flier at a homerun threat. DB Hamlin is a good scheme fit and should learn well behind the veterans.
Clearly the theme for the team this draft was targeting raw athletes. CB Wildgoose fit the bill. OG Anderson was another solid late flier and should stick.

7. (242) Tre Nixon, WR, UCF
Whether he's who they wanted all along or not, QB Jones is a great fit with McDaniels. His game is Brady-esque on the field, and he's reputed to be a quick processor of X & O's off of it.
The bigger issue is if this team is ever going to find or develop talent at the skill positions. They basically punted this on draft day besides FB/HB type Stevenson out of Oklahoma. He's versatile but limited athletically and is likely more of a FB as a pro.
DE Barmore is a Ty Warren look-a-like and fits the scheme. ED Perkins is a pass rush specialist but it's questionable he'll be as productive against better stronger pro OT's. LB McGrone is a good scheme fit. He's at his best when he anticipates and fills vs the run but he's not a difference maker at the position.
DB Bledsoe is a solid mid rounder with versatility;ST's might be his mark until he's ready to contribute. OG Sherman is a good later round get. He's likely not as great a find as Onwenu but he has starting ability. WR Nixon's a field stretcher that will get an opportunity in this WR group.

After going in hard on the OL last year the Dolphins opted to add playmaker Waddle instead of Sewell. When healthy Waddle's an all purpose threat with the ball in his hands, capable of high pointing downfield throws with strength, and turning underneath passes into chunk plays. If Robert Hunt and Austin Jackson progress as they expect, this was a solid move.
DE Phillips was easily the most talented rusher in this class but was a buyer beware because of his medical history and durability. S Holland was a great get in the 2nd. He's versatile and capable of man-ing up guys or filling in the box.
OL Eichenburg is a rock solid swing guy that could effectively fill in anywhere. TE Long carried the BC pass offense at times and should contribute situationally for the Dolphins. OT Coleman's a solid enough late pick and adds depth.
Wasn't much of a fan of Cin RB Doaks and it's legitimately surprising the team would consider RB an after thought instead of a top need. UDFA OG Robert Jones is a beast and should stick.

QB Wilson's been the obvious choice here for awhile and he's a great fit for LaFleur's scheme. What's not as clear is how well he'll fit in the NYC area. I'm not sure he'll get a great deal of leeway if mistakes pile up early on. Never the less he projects as a playmaker with the ability to carry the offense.
OL Tucker was a rock solid OL prospect and should excel wherever they fit him in. WR Moore is a future #1 WR imo. He's small but is fast, physical and has great ball skills. He's actually a lot like a boosted up Crowder. RB Carter has a solid chance of being a netter pro than his backfield mate Williams. He does everything effectively and just needs to stay healthy to be the RB #1.
S/LB's Sherwwod and Nasirildeen are solid developmental types for the LB spots. Both are big safeties that'll be counted on to get bigger and stronger. DB Carter will get an early opportunity for the nickel role. CB Echols is a solid late round depth guy. CB Pinnock I was never particularly high on at Pitt. He might be a candidate to switch to safety in this scheme.
Fully expect DT Marshall to be one of the steals of this class. He's a solid developmental nose type and should be a starter in time. UDFA TE Yeboah was considered by most a mid round prospect so something knocked his stock to get him undrafted.
