Morning mock draft: Bills land Levi Wallace's replacement – Bills Wire

Levi Wallace is a free agent this offseason and could end an incredible journey from undrafted to starter on the best defense in football.
Draft Wire came out with their three-round mock draft right before practices opened up a the Senior Bowl and Shrine Game. The Bills address three positions of need at picks 25, 57, and 89.
At pick 25, the Bills take cornerback Kaiir Elam out of Florida:
Speaking of this year’s deep corner class, here’s yet another first-rounder, as the Bills look to upgrade across the field from Tre’Davious White. Similar to McCreary, Elam was consistently successful at shutting down SEC talent, excelling in particular in press-man coverage.
In their mock, Elam is the sixth cornerback taken. Cincinnati’s Ahmad Garnder, LSU’s Derek Stingley Jr., Clemson’s Andrew Booth Jr., Washington’s Trent McDuffie, and Auburn’s Roger McCreary are all selected prior to 25.
Elam, a junior, started in 22 games for the Gators. He totaled 78 tackles, 20 pass breakups, and five interceptions in his career.
At pick 57 the Bills address their defensive line with Oklahoma’s Perrion Winfrey. The senior defensive tackle was named second-team Big 12 this season. In 12 games he had 23 total tackles including 11 tackles for loss and 5.5 sacks. He stands at a daunting 6-4 and 290+ pounds.
The Bills need to add size and strength in the trenches with the possible departure of Harrison Phillips, Jerry Hughes, and Mario Addison.
The Bills hop to the other side of the line with their final pick of the first three rounds, selecting redshirt senior offensive guard Justin Shaffer from Georgia.
Shaffer earned All-SEC honors this season as a member of the college football’s second-best team. He played left guard, a position the Bills rotated throughout the season.
