With just one pick on Friday night in the 2018 NFL Draft, the Buffalo Bills found a defensive lineman.

The Bills selected Harrison Phillips in the third round as the 96th overall pick. It was their only pick of the night following their two trades on Thursday with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and Baltimore Ravens.

Phillips played in 34 games over four seasons with Stanford. During his senior season, he recorded 103 tackles, 7.5 sacks, 17 tackles for loss and two forced fumbles. He missed the majority of his sophomore season after a season-ending injury.

Phillips joins QB Josh Allen and LB Tremaine Edmunds, both of whom were selected in the first round Thursday night, as part of the Bills' 2018 NFL Draft class.

The Bills currently have five more picks in the NFL Draft. Rounds 4-7 will take place on Saturday when the Bills will select 121st (4th round), 154th (5th round), 166th (5th round), 187th (6th round) and 255th overall (7th round).
