The Buffalo Bills and their fans are reeling after the team's last-second loss to the Kansas City Chiefs. To avoid a third straight postseason loss to Patrick Mahomes, Buffalo might need to make some upgrades this offseason.

The NFL Draft is usually the simplest way to do that. Here are three players the Bills should target with the No. 25 overall pick this offseason.

Buffalo Bills NFL Draft Targets

1. Andrew Booth Jr., CB, Clemson Tigers

Mahomes absolutely cooked this secondary. He threw 3 touchdowns to 0 interceptions with 378 passing yards. 188 of those yards even came after the 2-minute warning. Buffalo has the CB1 position locked down for the foreseeable future, as the 27-year-old Tre'Davious White will be returning from his ACL injury, but the Bills need to bolster the rest of this CB group. Thankfully, they should have plenty of options in the Draft. Andrew Booth Jr., who has 3 INTs and 9 passes defended over the past two seasons, would be an excellent fit opposite of White. But players like the 6-foot-2 Kaiir Elam out of Florida, Michigan's Daxton Hill or Washington's Kyler Gordon would be solid as well. Buffalo should have a ton of talented CBs to choose from at No. 25.

2. Kenyon Green, OG/OT, Texas A&M Aggies

The Bills could also stand to add some more talent on the OL. Rookie Spencer Brown didn't blow anyone away at right tackle this year. But the 23-year-old is a 6-foot-8 mammoth who excelled as a run blocker and can probably be penciled in as the 2022 starter. Assuming he develops in pass protection, left guard is probably the biggest hole on this group. The 20-year-old Kenyon Green would be a very intriguing fit in Buffalo. He's versatile enough to play tackle in a pinch, but he'll primarily be playing guard at the next level. Adding the former 5-star recruit would upgrade the interior of this OL while also adding some depth at tackle should anything happen to Dion Dawkins or Brown. The Bills need to do everything in their power to maximize Allen right now, and adding Green would be a great way to start.

3. Jameson Williams, WR, Alabama Crimson Tide

Jameson Williams would likely be a top-10 selection had he not torn his ACL in the National Championship. That injury could cause Williams to fall to the end of the first, where Buffalo would have a really difficult time passing him up. Wide receiver is not really a need, but Buffalo could use a pure burner like Williams. Williams looks to have legit 4.3 speed and put up 1,572 yards and 15 TDs at Alabama this year. Buffalo also just watched Tyreek Hill change the entire game with one play and might want to give Josh Allen a speed demon of his own. If the Bills are intent on selecting a wideout, the 6-foot-4 Drake London would be an excellent option too, as the big-bodied WR would bring a whole new element to this WR room.
