Walt Aikens, CB/S, Liberty
Bashaud Breeland, CB/S, Clemson
Ross Cockrell, CB, Duke
After the Bills used their first three selections on prospects who all officially visited the team, the significance of those list prospects can no longer be downplayed. With that in mind, it's likely that Aikens, Breeland and Cockrell will be among the team's top targets on Day 3, as they are the three defensive backs remaining out of the six who were hosted at One Bills Drive.
All three of these cornerbacks are potential fourth-round picks. The best fit for the Bills would be Aikens, a big, physical defensive back who excels in press coverage and run support and has playing experience at safety. Breeland is another skilled, physical cornerback with safety experience. Cockrell is the most fluid cornerback prospect of the trio, but he is smaller and not as versatile.
Pierre Desir, CB, Lindenwood
Jaylen Watkins, CB, Florida
Keith McGill, CB/S, Utah
The Bills' visitation trends would strongly indicate that they will look for at least one defensive back on Day 3. Should they decide to look at less predictable targets, Desir, Watkins and McGill would all be great values outside of the top 100.
If Buffalo is looking for height at the cornerback position, they could get that from Desir, who is 6'1", or McGill, who is 6'3". Desir is a fluid cover cornerback with good ball skills; McGill isn't as polished of a defensive back, but he has a rare combination of size and athleticism. With their size, both could project to playing safety as well as cornerback.
Watkins is a smaller cornerback who fits best in the slot, but he's arguably the most skilled defensive back still available on the board and would be worthy of Day 3 consideration. Another reason he might intrigue the Bills: He's Sammy Watkins' older brother.
David Yankey, G, Stanford
Cyril Richardson, G, Baylor
Dakota Dozier, G, Furman
If the Buffalo Bills continue their trend of prioritizing size and power in building their offensive line, Yankey and Richardson would be great fits as Day 3 additions for competition at left guard. Both blockers have limited athleticism but display good functional strength and have the potential to develop into starters. Yankey is the more technically polished of the duo, but Richardson has more raw power.
Dozier isn't quite as big and powerful as Yankey or Richardson, but the small-school standout is another strong guard prospect who could be a steal on the draft's third day. He has more athleticism than Yankey or Richardson but is a tougher projection who will be asked to kick inside from playing left tackle at the small-school level.
Laurent Duvernay-Tardif, OT, McGill (Canada)
The Bills don't have a need at offensive tackle, but don't rule out Duvernay-Tardif, another of the team's predraft visitors, as a Day 3 value selection. Ranked as the No. 1 player north of the border by the Canadian Football League's scouting bureau, he has an intriguing combination of size and athleticism that gives him the potential to develop into a starter and potentially be a huge steal in the later rounds.
James Gayle, DE, Virginia Tech
If the Bills were to look for a defensive end in Round 4, Gayle would be the best choice. He is an athletic pass-rusher with good measurables for the position and would be capable of taking an immediate rotational role in the Buffalo defensive front.
Aaron Lynch, DE, South Florida
With two fifth-round picks in tow, Lynch shouldn't be ruled out as a potential Day 3 flier. He is an explosive athlete who has huge potential as an edge defender despite the fact that he never came close to living up to it in his collegiate career. He is thin but has great length and is a better athlete than he is a football player, but he would be an intriguing developmental prospect with high-reward possibility.
Lache Seastrunk, RB, Baylor
With four of the Bills' six running back visitors being off the board and one of the two remaining being little-known Terrance Cobb from the NAIA program, University of the Cumberlands, Seastrunk stands out as the most likely target at that position on Day 3.
Although he doesn't fit the power back mantra that Buffalo seemed to be eyeing, Seastrunk has enough burst and shiftiness to make big plays as an NFL runner.
Andre Williams, RB, Boston College
The best fit for the Bills among available running backs might be Williams, a strong between-the-tackles runner who consistently finishes forward on contact. His stock is hurt by a lack of receiving ability out of the backfield, but he's a reliable source of yardage with the ball in his hands.
