The Bills are almost done signing their 2018 draft picks.

The team announced that they have agreed to a four-year contract with third-round pick Harrison Phillips on Wednesday. Getting the defensive tackle under contract leaves them with seven of eight picks signed and only first-round quarterback Josh Allen to go before every deal is done.

Phillips led Stanford and all FBS defensive linemen in tackles last season with 103. Phillips made 17 of those tackles for losses and added 7.5 sacks on his way to a spot on the All Pac-12 first-team and All-American third team.

The Bills also signed Star Lotulelei and Tenny Palepoi at defensive tackle and re-signed Kyle Williams for a 13th season in Buffalo. Adolphus Washington rounds out the group that will vie with Phillips for playing time during his rookie season.

  1. Harrison IS the heir apparent to Kyle Williams. Hear nothing but good things about this young man. His strength and past Wrestling experience makes for a great DT.

    Great player but that organization will kill his will

    Are you speaking of the same organization that has kept Kyle Williams, A 5th round(pick 134) draft selection from 2006? This is his 13th season Moses… I’d say the team has built his will. Troll elsewhere.

  3. Beane had his lucky horseshoe working overtime in this year’s draft. Not only did he get the best NFL QB and LB in this year’s draft, he also got the best NFL DT. Sometimes it’s just better to be lucky than good.

  4. Buffalo could draft OJ again at his present age and Bills fans will say it’s a great addition, a great draft pick.

  5. The Bills D Line really started giving up yardage against the run immediately after Marcell Dareus was traded – it was like night and day. I expect that to be change this year….

    That was happening even before we traded him. It’s one of the many reasons he was traded.

  7. No, Run stuffing was only one reason we traded hi. He did do what he always had done and that was taking double teams blocking. Sadly we had no pass rush to take advantage of his 2 men blocks. The biggest reason was his over paid contract. We had to get that off our books.
