Just like I did eight weeks ago here, I’m going to give you six players to consider for each one of Brandon Beane’s nine picks in the 2020 NFL Draft. My “Pick Six”, if you will. You will often see these names grabbed by the Bills in DraftTek mocks, and they will change as we get closer and closer to late April 2020. Follow #BillsMafia, #DraftTek, and @TCBILLS_Astro on Twitter for updates and debate.
