I've mentioned Mario Williams as someone who hasn't played up to his potential. The same can be said for Kyle Williams, who turns 33 this offseason. Considering that he's due $7 million in 2016, the Bills could part ways with him.
Pick change; previously Shaq Lawson, DE
Rd. 2, Pk. 18
Jonathan Bullard, DE/DT/3-4DE, Florida
The Bills had lots of potential entering this season, as many, including myself, thought that Rex Ryan would improve a defense that was already terrific. Instead, the stop unit has struggled. Some players, like Mario Williams, have been completely dogging it, so I can't see him being around next year. Here's a replacement for the declining pass-rusher.
Pick change; previously Austin Johnson, DT
Rd. 3, Pk. 17
Demarcus Robinson, WR, Florida
The Bills have such a stagnant offense when Sammy Watkins isn't on the field. Adding a potent second threat could really help Tyrod Taylor.
The Bills grab a long-term replacement for Richie Incognito with a power run blocker to pave the way for LeSean McCoy and Karlos Williams.
The 6-foot-6, 342-pound Alexander is a massive blocker who can open holes at the point of attack. He played well at guard in 2014 as an impactful run blocker and reliable pass protector. Alexander is playing right tackle as a senior, but guard looks better as a long-term home in the NFL. This season, he has struggled in pass protection on a few plays and allowed some sacks in the early going, but has been better recently. Some teams could think of keeping him at right tackle.

Cardale Jones, QB, Ohio State
The Bills grab a potential starting quarterback. Jones has a great skill set, so perhaps Greg Roman can work some magic with him.
There is no doubt that Jones (6-5, 250) can make some devastating throws with elite arm strength for the NFL. Aside from his right-arm cannon, Jones has also displayed his running ability and how difficult he is to sack with his huge size. Jones has been up-and-down in 2015, but considering he has only 11 starts in his college career, it is understandable that he is raw and needs development. In 2015, Jones has completed 63 percent of his passes for 1,460 yards with eight touchdowns and five interceptions.
Jones put on a display in 2014 after entering the starting lineup behind Braxton Miller and J.T. Barrett. In his three starts, he completed 61 percent of his passes for 860 yards with seven touchdowns and two interceptions.
Jones has a ton of upside and could be a tremendous play-maker if he improves his football I.Q., field vision and overall passing technique. Teams do have concerns about his maturity and leadership skills.
Pick change; previously Jonathan Allen, DE
Rd. 3, Pk. 17
Bronson Kaufusi, DE/3-4OLB, BYU
The Bills grab a young understudy for Mario Williams.
Kaufusi has 53 tackles, 16 tackles for a loss, 10 sacks and a forced fumble in 2015. As a junior, he collected seven sacks after putting together a four-sack season as a sophomore. Despite his measurements, which could be inflated, Kaufusi (6-8, 280) might fit best in a 3-4 defense.
