The Buffalo Bills got their man. With rumors swirling about Buffalo wanting to trade up and the Jets being interested in selecting him at three overall ultimately Buffalo stayed put.

Ed Oliver is headed to the Bills. Houston's stud defensive lineman is set to terrorize the AFC East joining a defense that ranked second in total defense last year.

The last time the Cougars sent a first rounder to the draft was William Jackson III in 2016. The last top ten pick was David Klingler who went sixth overall in 1992.
