The Buffalo Bills are Super Bowl favorites. For the first time in 30 years, the Bills are expected to compete for a ring on an annual basis. While this is incredibly exciting for one of the most loyal and fervid fanbases in the NFL, it also adds immense pressure to the mix. Gone are the 'blue-collar' 'up-and-coming' labels, and found is the 'juggernaut' stamp. The Bills' over/under on win totals is set at a league-high 11.5, and I think most people would comfortably take the over. As always, Buffalo's season will be defined by health, and if a certain #17 can stay healthy and continue to play MVP football, this team could finally solve their Kansas City problem.

An already-talented-and league-best-defense added Kaiir Elam and Von Miller to the fold while Josh Allen received a few new weapons at his disposal and quietly added some nice pieces along the offensive line. If he and new OC Ken Dorsey mix well (remember, Josh Allen endorsed Dorsey), this offense should be among the best in the league. As I said before the still gut-wrenching loss to the Chiefs, having a top-5 defense and a top-5 offense led by a top - quarterback will lead to some pretty lofty goals. Will 2022 be the season the Bills finally bring the Lombardi to Buffalo?

BILLS HISTORICAL DRAFT PICKS

Reach/Value (R/V) Explained
The difference between where a player is selected in the NFL draft versus where the player was listed on the final Drafttek Big Board for the season in question.
Example: A player who was listed at #50 on the Big Board and was selected at #35 will be a "Reach" of -15. Alternately, a player listed at #35 on the Big Board who was selected at #50 is a +15 "Value".

Simply put: a positive number is a Value pick, a negative number is a Reach.
