Bills Met Virtually With South Carolina DT Javon Kinlaw


According to Ryan Talbot, the Bills held a FaceTime meeting with South Carolina DT Javon Kinlaw recently. 

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. 

NFL Media’s Lance Zierlein compares the 6-5 and 324 pound Kinlaw to Rams DT Michael Brockers in his scouting report. 

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.
