If we want an overrated, undersized LB we could just resign Aaron Maybin.

I'd gladly take him at that pick.

But I have a nagging feeling we'll make a stretch for a QB... Nassib specifically (even though he's projected MUCH later)

How about Ogletree or J. Jones? I think I'd rather have either one of them at LB than Te'o at this point.

It's interesting to note that he doesn't have a QB on the board yet (though he promises that he will)

Would it be worth it to pick up Teo if we could also get Geno Smith/Matt Barclay, the guys who the "take a QB in the first" group have held as their star examples?

I was all in on Teo before the bowl game and now am having doubts based upon the way he was run over in that game.  I guess you can't overreact to one game, but ...
I like taking guys with who have performed and produced (teo certainly did that this year) over folks who have impressive test results, but no long term results to support the "look".  The maybin comparison is not fair -- Teo has the right size for a MLB and has good foorball instincts.

i'd rather stay away from Te'o.  there are other LB's who offer much more explosion and game-changing ability.  Te'o could be a solid starter in the NFL, but i don't see him being a game-changer/Pro-Bowl LB.

i'd be more comfortable with Te'o if we were drafting like 20.

Agreed. much rather take one of these cats then Te'o. I've heard it on here before and agree with it still. His combine numbers will disappoint.

I too think that would be a good pick, but my gut feeling is like others, Buddy is feeling the heat for a QB and they might just take the Syracuse QB, Nassib about 30 spots higher then he is projected.

Teo will probably not have to tackle or get blocked by guys that big or juiced up like he did vs Alabama.

Right.  The NFL is full of tiny players. :doh:  The Alabama game wasn't just a red flag.  It was massive fireworks display of red.  T'eo wasn't just outplayed, he looked like he didn't even belong on the field.

Ogletree is my pick, Jones scares me a little with his injury/illness past

I think your sarcasm meter is malfunctioning.  As for the undersized comment you made earlier, 6'2" 255 is undersized?

Te'o makes so much sense. He's worth an 8th pick, no doubt. He's Samoan, which apparently gives him super-human abilities. And he can immediately step in for our weakest link, Kelvin Sheppard.

Agreed.  I don't like taking a LB that high unless game-changing ability, as you mention.

The Bills have other issues to address like QB, and I would rather then trade down and get extra picks.  If possible: they never do.

Did I miss the announcement that the Patriots were being removed from the league?
