With the 22nd pick of the 2018 DBN Community NFL Mock Draft, the Buffalo Bills select...

Christian Kirk, WR, Texas A&M

The selection and write-up were made by a2342432a:

The Bills made the playoffs last season, but it was not pretty. Their defense carried them as far as they could before getting squashed and looking towards the offseason where they dealt their veteran QB and in this mock draft, opted for a new one in Sam Darnold. I feel Kirk can be argued as the top receiver in the class especially on a team where he would need to start Day 1. This would be a perfect scenario to help the Bills move forward, and they can grab some offensive line help in the picks to come.

I could see him becoming a favorite target of his rookie QB once McCarron rides the pine, and put up numbers a little better than Cooper Kupp due to the lack of receiving weapons left in Buffalo.

Pokorny: “Receiver is an area of need for Buffalo, and with their defense clicking on well a year ago, I support the move for a receiver here. His stock might not be graded as a first-round due to him being a slot receiver, but he can offer some comfort to new quarterback A.J. McCarron. Ultimately, though, I think Buffalo packages both of their picks to move up for a rookie quarterback.”

The New England Patriots are up next, led by unoservix.
