Bills to pay: After surprising drop, Khalil Shakir finally off the board in NFL Draft

Look, I’m not the most hardened homer in the world but I still felt Khalil Shakir slipping out of day 2 of the NFL Draft was a stunner. Then when round 4 came and went with Khalil still using his phone to play Candy Crush, I started to wonder if I was hallucinating. But soon after—once the 5th(!) round was under way, we finally got to hear Shakir’s name called and despite my misgivings about his draft position, his destination is a great one.


With the 148th pick in the 2022 #NFLDraft, the @BuffaloBills select @king_khalil2!
