CAPACCIO: 2020 NFL Mock Draft

75756A5E-120A-4932-810C-2FD980DB785E

Welcome to NFL Draft Day 2020! And to the only official mock draft I’ve done this entire offseason.

The Buffalo Bills don’t own a first round pick this year after trading it to the Minnesota Vikings for wide receiver Stefon Diggs. While that may make the draft a little less exciting in Western New York, it forced me to do my mock all the way through the first round and then to pick No. 54, where the Bills are scheduled to make their first selection.

Here’s the mock:

54.) Buffalo Bills: Curtis Weaver - EDGE - Boise State

We know the Bills coaching staff loves players with position flexibility, and this front office has opted for players with experience more often than not since they’ve been in charge. Even though he played only three years at Boise State, Weaver has played in 40 collegiate football games and can also play in multiple defenses, either with his hand on the ground as a rush-end or standing up. He’s had a super productive college career, and capped it off by being named the Mountain West Conference’s Defensive Player of the Year last season, an award Bills defensive end Jerry Hughes won in both 2008 and 2009 at TCU. In fact, Weaver passed Hughes for the most career sacks in the Mountain West, and is the conference's all-time leader with 34. That also ranks fifth all-time in NCAA history since the stat has been kept. He’s also the Mountain West’s career-leader in tackles for loss with 48.
