Large free-agency haul leaves Bills with many draft options

Coming off a 17-player haul in free agency, Brandon Beane has plenty of options entering the NFL draft. And the Bills general manager isn’t going to restrict himself to focusing on one or two positions when it comes time for Buffalo to make the No. 9 selection.

Name a position outside of quarterback, after Buffalo selected Josh Allen with its first pick a year ago, and Beane won’t rule it out. And that includes an offensive lineman, even though Buffalo added seven newcomers already this offseason.

“I wouldn’t say it’s less likely, no. I think there’s some good ones,” Beane said.

“Guys, I’m serious. We’re taking the best player,” Beane added, before noting he and his scouting staff will hold several in-house mock drafts to prep for the draft. “I feel confident that we’ll get a good player at nine. And I’ll be curious how these mocks go, but I can see a lot of scenarios of (selecting a player from) either side of the ball.”
