PickOverallChoiceNotes
1.1414Eric Ebron, TE
from North Carolina
We considered trading down again, but ultimately, the drop-off from Ebron to who we might have been left with in a trade-down scenario was too steep to make a deal. Ebron gives up the pass-catching playmaker we need for our offense and to help Manuel thrive and develop in his second year.
2.0941Kony Ealy, DE
from Missouri
Kony Ealy is arguably the best player available at this point, and he gives us a strong three-man rotation at defensive end along with Mario Williams and Jerry Hughes.
3.0973Jack Mewhort, OT
from Ohio State
Run on offensive linemen almost passed us by, but Mewhort was one of our third-round targets all along. Gives us versatility to potentially be an upgrade at either RT or LG.
3.1882Trai Turner, OG
from LSU
We wanted to come away from the draft with two offensive linemen, so decided to double up here in Round 3 with the number who have come off the board. Turner is a powerful, athletic guard who we felt was the best blocker on the board.
4.09109Keith McGill, CB
from Utah
Love McGill's value in Round 4 as a high-upside defensive back who could project to both CB and FS.
5.09149Yawin Smallwood, ILB
from Connecticut
Depth player at linebacker who could potentially take over the starting middle linebacker job in 2015 if Brandon Spikes leaves after one year. Falling down boards, but a highly productive player who should at least be a solid run-stopping MLB and special teams contributor.
7.09224Nevin Lawson, CB
from Utah State
BPA selection — Lawson could be a 3rd-4th round pick, so he's great value in the 7th and gives the Bills even more secondary depth.
