Bills finally on NFL draft clock after sitting out 1st round

ORCHARD PARK, N.Y. (AP) The Buffalo Bills are finally on the clock.

After sitting out the first round of the NFL draft, the Bills will make their first selection in the second round with the 50th overall selection on Friday. Among the team's needs are offensive line and defensive back. And don't rule out the possibility of Buffalo selecting a linebacker or quarterback.

General manager Doug Whaley joked he and his staff bet M&M's candy on which players would be chosen before each first-round pick

The Bills traded their 2015 first- and fourth-round selections last year to Cleveland, and moved up five spots to draft receiver Sammy Watkins at No. 4.

Buffalo also has a third-round pick, 81st overall, on Friday. Barring trades, Buffalo closes with four selections on Saturday.
