I'll tell you who's worth a swing at the fences at #10: Obi Melifonwu, that's who.
With needs at both safety and certainly now cornerback, we can draft him as a guy that can play either, matchup-depending. Simply put, he has the frame and athletic ability to cover guys that maybe nobody else CAN. I mean, it's just physics.
What else..... 4-year starter, led his team in tackles, SMART, and looks like a high-quality kid, to boot. I see a unique pass-coverage guy, an athletic marvel, and a legit player. Level of competition, of course, being my ONLY concern.
Thoughts on him?

Definitely not a top 10 pick and would be a huge reach. he was graded out as a 2nd/3rd rd and with his combine stats he may now be on the late 1st early 2nd rd. If bills traded down to the early 20s and pick up extra picks or trade up in the 2nd rd maybe but definitely not at 10

Agreed. Not someone you gamble on at 10. If you can trade down or get him in the early 2nd, 100% yes.

There's a long list of combine warriors who were duds in the NFL. I love him personally, but I don't feel comfortable taking him at 10.
