The Bills had to trade up to get both of their picks Friday, but they also got two of Mel Kiper's favorite players in this draft class.

Here are the Bills picks so far through the first three rounds of the draft: 1. Tre'Davious White, CB, LSU; 2. Zay Jones, WR, East Carolina; 2. Dion Dawkins, OT, Temple.

Trading was the name of the game for the Bills (1:07)

One commonality between the Bills' three draft picks: they had little predraft contact with any of them. OL Dion Dawkins says he barely heard from team; WR Zay Jones said there was "not a whole lot" from Bills and CB Tre'Davious White said he did not know Buffalo "had much interest in him at all." An important reminder not to read too much into predraft workouts and buzz.

Despite not holding any picks until No. 163 (fifth round), Bills coach Sean McDermott says nobody is packing up the draft room for the night. They're keeping their options open with potential trades back into third/fourth rounds.

Bills add a big one in G Dion Dawkins

Buffalo added a mauling OL late in the second round that Mel Kiper Jr. likes because of his drive to be great.

Bills select OT Dion Dawkins with the No. 63 selection, acquired from Atlanta in a trade up. Buffalo had a need at right tackle, even though they re-signed Jordan Mills this offseason. Mills started all 16 games at right tackle last season but was rated 64th in NFL by Pro Football Focus.

Bills have traded the No. 63 pick to Atlanta for No. 75 (third round), No. 149 (fifth round) and No. 156 (fifth round). They now have only three picks remaining: No. 163 (fifth round), No. 171 (fifth round) and No. 195 (sixth round). No third or fourth round picks for Buffalo.

Bills coach Sean McDermott says the selection of WR Zay Jones is not related to decision on Sammy Watkins' fifth-year option for 2018, which is due to be made by next week. McDermott says Watkins is a good football player and the situations are in "separate silos."

ESPN Stats and Information  

Zay Jones couldn't get an FBS offer in his home state of Texas coming out of high school, but ended up setting FBS records for both career and single-season receptions at East Carolina.

New Bills WR Zay Jones says he has the "best hands in this draft class" when asked about his best attributes. Jones also says he is a "natural football player" and "great teammate."

Correction on Bills' trade with Rams: according to ESPN NFL Insider Adam Schefter, it is pick No. 149. But that is a fifth-round selection, not fourth-round. Bills now have four selections in fifth round.

The Bills select WR Zay Jones at No. 37 after trading up with the Rams from No. 44. Jones was the top receiver remaining on the board and will reunite with Bills WRs coach Phil McGeoghan, who was his position coach at East Carolina last season.

Bills coach Sean McDermott said after Thursday night's first round that he would sleep well, but that did not happen. Instead, he stayed up and "cracked open some Raisin Bran," McDermott told the Bills' official radio program Friday. Sounds delicious.
