For clarity purposes, I will be drafting this mock draft with the assumption that the Bills let all their free agents walk with the exception of Daryl Williams, Andre Smith, Levi Wallace, and Ike Boettger.

With these being the only players the Bills elect to re-sign for this hypothetical mock draft

‘Rainbow Six Siege’ update adds to game’s content and complexity

Andreas Milano

At the time of its 2018 proclamation, Siege was already a complicated, nuanced game. Now, the combination of the massive size and sheer number of maps, compared to other tactical shooters, alongside a cadre of 59 unique operators, each with their own specified class and gadgets, make it a daunting task to jump into as a new player. And it appears it will only become more so.

The game is constantly growing, expanding, fundamentally changing, each new layer making it more difficult for new players to learn. With each addition come new ways to fulfill the game’s dueling missions of
