Kinlaw is widely regarded as a high first-round pick and Buffalo traded their first for WR Stefon Diggs, so on the surface, this makes little sense.
However, Talbot points out this is a case of Bills GM Brandon Beane doing his due diligence, as while there’s almost no chance Buffalo drafts Kinlaw, they could potentially sign him as a free agent down the road.
Talbot adds the Bills met with Kinlaw at the Senior Bowl and NFL Combine.
Kinlaw, 23, is widely seen as one of the top defensive tackles available in this year’s draft class and could go as high as the top-ten picks.
During his three-year college career, Kinlaw recorded 82 tackles, 10 sacks, three forced fumbles, four fumble recoveries and eight pass defenses in 29 career games.
