NFL Hot Press: Bills Considering Safety Help in 2024 NFL Draft

Rolled Newspaper bearing title: "NFL HOT PRESS"

Over the last handful of years, the Buffalo Bills had one of the better safety tandems in the NFL with veterans Jordan Poyer and Micah Hyde. They were very reliable and steady veterans who anchored the back end of the secondary. However, things could be changing with Hyde hitting free agency and Poyer being a potential cap casualty. With those veterans potentially being done in Buffalo, sources with the team said safety is on the organization’s radar for the 2024 NFL Draft.

The 2024 NFL Draft is not strong at the safety position, but the Bills could land some intriguing talents on the second team. The Bills are high on Miami safety Kamren Kinchens. Kinchens needs to run fast and do well in the field drills in order to have a shot at being a second-round pick, but Buffalo really likes Kinchens. Kinchens generated tremendous ball production with 12 interceptions over the past two seasons. The Bills also are looking hard at Minnesota’s Tyler Nubin and Georgia’s Javon Bullard. Nubin is a big strong safety type, but he had some problems with missed tackles last season. Bullard is a hybrid safety/nickel corner similar to Detroit’s Brian Branch.

The Bills could use their first-round pick to help their offense and draw on the 2024 NFL Draft’s strong class of wide receivers, or go with the best player available at a different position. Buffalo is interested in adding safety talent, and I have the team doing that in my latest 2024 NFL Mock Draft.
