Bills Select Jordan Poyer Successor in Todd McShay's First 2023 Mock Draft

Bills Select Jordan Poyer Successor in Todd McShay's First 2023 Mock Draft


The NFL enters the final month of the regular season in Week 15 and the league is beginning to get a clear look at the playoff picture. This also coincides with the end of college football's regular season, which makes it the perfect time to look ahead at the 2023 NFL Draft.

ESPN's Todd McShay unveiled his first mock draft on Tuesday and has the Buffalo Bills targeting a potential Jordan Poyer replacement in the first round.

McShay used ESPN's Football Power Index (FPI) for the order of his first mock and tabs Buffalo taking Texas A&M safety Antonio Johnson with the No. 28 overall pick. Johnson is described as a safety that plays great underneath and at stopping the run near the line of scrimmage.

The thought process is pretty simple. Poyer turns 32 in the offseason and becomes a free agent. Micah Hyde is also in his 30s and hits free agency after the 2023 campaign, and McShay believes the Bills will start thinking about their replacement plans now. It's a complete roster and looking ahead to the future will keep the Bills in the Super Bowl conversation for years to come.
