Bills Select Iowa Defensive End A.J. Epenesa With First 2020 Draft Pick
The Bills didn't have a 2020 first-round draft choice after trading it away to the Minnesota Vikings for star receiver Stefon Diggs, so they didn't make their first pick until pick 54 in round two, which was tonight.
They chose Iowa defensive end/edge rusher, A.J. Epenesa
Standing at 6'5, 275, Epenesa fills a need for the Bills after they lost Shaq Lawson to free agency this spring.
Considering the 2020 draft was regarded as one of the deepest drafts in years, it's reasonable that Epenesa could have gone in the first round of the draft if it was another year.
