In the middle of a disappointing 2023 season relative to their preseason expectations, the Buffalo Bills will enter the offseason with plenty of question marks on both sides of the ball. With plenty of holes on both sides of the ball, how many picks do the Bills have in the 2024 NFL Draft?

How Many Picks Do the Bills Have in 2024?
The Bills come in with nine picks after orchestrating a few trades in last year’s draft and this season. The Bills own most of their picks this year. The Bills sent their third-round pick in 2024 to the Green Bay Packers in exchange for cornerback Rasul Douglas at the trade deadline this season and received a fifth-round pick from Green Bay in exchange.
The Bills own the Los Angeles Rams’ sixth-round pick after the Rams traded up to take Ole Miss running back Zach Evans in the 2023 NFL Draft. They also own the Houston Texans’ sixth-round pick after the Texans traded up to take Iowa State wide receiver Xavier Hutchinson.
Who Did the Bills Draft In 2023?
The Bills traded up in the first round of the 2023 NFL Draft with the Jacksonville Jaguars and selected Utah tight end Dalton Kincaid. Kincaid has emerged as a star for the Bills and has caught 56 passes for 474 yards and two touchdowns.
In the second round, the Bills drafted Florida guard O’Cyrus Torrence with the 59th overall pick. Torrence has been a full-time starter with the team at right guard and looks like a building block for the team’s offensive line for the foreseeable future.
The Bills selected Tulane linebacker Dorian Williams in the third round. Williams has been part of the team’s linebacker rotation and should factor into the team’s defensive plans moving forward.
Buffalo did not pick in the fourth round, but they did select another offensive player in Florida wide receiver Justin Shorter in the fifth round this past April. Shorter hasn’t played for the Bills in the regular season.
The Bills did not pick until 80 selections after drafting Shorter. Buffalo drafted Ole Miss guard Nick Broeker in the seventh round with the 230th pick in the draft. Broeker did not make the team and is currently on the Houston Texans. With their second seventh-round pick, the Bills drafted Oregon State cornerback Alex Austin. Austin also did not make the team and was waived. Austin currently plays for the New England Patriots.
