A complete list of Buffalo Bills picks in the 2022 NFL Draft can be found below.

Round 1

PICK #23

Buffalo Bills

Kaiir Elam

CB, Florida

The Bills needed a corner and had their eye on McDuffie, who went to the AFC playoff rival Chiefs. It’s also surprising they traded up for Elam instead of Andrew Booth Jr. But the bottom line is, they needed a nice-sized replacement for Levi Wallace opposite Tre’Davious White more than anything else on a loaded roster. Elam was worthy of a late first-rounder or early second-rounder, so this isn’t really too much of a reach.

Grade: B

(from BAL via AZ)

Round 2

PICK #31

Buffalo Bills

James Cook

RB, Georgia

The Bills needed more reliable speed and quickness in a complementary role to late-season breakout Devin Singletary. Cook can’t be a workhorse like older brother Dalvin but he can provide some big-play juice playing off Josh Allen’s downfield passing game. He should take over as their primary receiver from the backfield.

Grade: A

(from CIN)

Round 3

PICK #25

Buffalo Bills

Terrel Bernard

LB, Baylor

The Bills get some speedy depth to help their second-level pass coverage. Bernard can also help on special teams but he’s not a reliable asset against the run.

Grade: C

Khalil Shakir

WR, Boise State
