ESPN's Todd McShay wants all NFL teams to get an A rating after the first two days of the 2019 NFL Draft.
When it comes to the Buffalo Bills, McShay believes that that means getting help in the trenches and adding a gun to catch pbades for Josh Allen. According to McShay, the best case for Buffalo is to add Houston defensive tackle Ed Oliver, Texas A & M offensive lineman Erik McCoy and San Diego state tight end Kahale Warring.
This is what McShay said in his ESPN + article:
Round 1 (9): Ed Oliver, DT, Houston
Round 2 (40): Erik McCoy, C / G, Texas A & M
Round 3 (74): Kahale Warring, TE, San Diego State
These first two Buffalo selections are about taking the best available player. Oliver is a beast inside, and the retirement of Kyle Williams means that the Bills could use a reliable top. McCoy could slide on guard with Mitch Morse in the center, taking measures to protect the QB team's franchise, Josh Allen. For the third team selection, we return to the areas of need and take a tight end so that Allen can aim.
NFL Draft 2019: Should the Buffalo Bills take Ed Oliver? Pros, cons and fit
Everything you need to know about Ed Oliver and if the Bills should go after him in the draft.
Oliver has been a popular mock selection for the Bills. In preparation for the draft, Buffalo has done its due diligence on defensive tackle. He met with Buffalo at the combine and is one of the 30 visitors prior to the team's draft. Oliver would be a day as a starter in Buffalo.
McCoy is another intriguing selection of McShay. Buffalo added Mitch Morse in the center and signed guards Quinton Spain, Spencer Long and Jon Feliciano in free agency. Despite having added several offensive linemen, recruiting McCoy is not a bad idea. Morse has faced injuries in the past two seasons and McCoy would be a reliable backup option at the center. McCoy could also compete for one of the team's starting guard positions as a rookie.
The fight can not be considered one of the best tight ends of the draft, but the San Diego State product is coming off a season in which he caught 31 pbades for 372 yards and three touchdowns. The tight end only played one football season in high school before joining the state of San Diego as a walk. It is very possible that the best days of Warring are ahead on the football field.
