Has Brandon Beane’s first draft class passed muster?

NFL Draft grades. Love them or hate them, you know that one of the best discussion-starters out there is trying to put a rating onto an NFL Draft class. That applies both in the immediate aftermath of the weekend, as well as a few years down the road after their careers have taken shape.

Core muscle complications are in his past—will it follow him to the NFL?

Sixth-round pick Damar Hamlin walks into a Buffalo Bills locker room that is long on talent and short on opportunities.

Two significant injuries early in his career slowed Stevenson down.

Speedy WR Marquez Stevenson was selected by the Buffalo Bills in the sixth round to ideally be used on special teams following the departure of Andre Roberts. However, injuries threatened to derail his career even before it started, which likely led to his fall in the draft. If he can overcome some of the initial hurdles, he could become a difference maker for the Bills in 2021 and beyond....
