2016 NFL Mock Draft: Buffalo Bills Select ILB Reggie Ragland at No. 19

Butch Dill-USA TODAY Sports

With the No. 19 pick in the 2016 DBN Community NFL Mock Draft, the Buffalo Bills select...

Reggie Ragland, ILB, Alabama

The selection and write-up were made by GratefulDawg:

As the representative of our Lake Erie brethren, we are truckin' up to Buffalo to try and tap into the mind of Rex Ryan.  There are many ways to go here but in the end it came down to Ragland or Lynch.  Drafting Lynch was tempting, and I'm sure many fans would want him, but Tyrod Taylor still has a chance to prove himself, and there should be value at QB in Round 2.  The Bills are also thin at DL and Robert Nkemdiche could be a steal here, but the off-the-field red flags are too much to bargain with.

Reggie Ragland is the best ILB in the draft and is able to provide instant impact on a Bills team that is completely depleted at LB.  His ability to step in immediately, play physical, stop the run, and lead are too much to pass up.  Ragland is a throwback MLB and could become the leader, play caller and backbone for the Bills defense for years to come.  Not sexy, but smart.  Wait is this Rex Ryan we're talking about?

The New York Jets are up next, led by troy145.
