I have two moves.

1)  Trade down. We aren't going QB at #8 with Kolb on board. The team spent a ton of time with him before offering him a contract and he feels the Offensive system will fit him, plus I have been convinced from the start the next QB is Nassib, with a trade back into the first round.

2) Lane Johnson LT Oklahoma.  Will be a stud for years AND we can move Glenn inside giving us one of the better interior lines in the NFL.

1) Trade our  #1 this year for a  2014 #1 pick, bundle them and draft Johnny Football next year.  

2) Stop all nonsense talk about moving a future alll-pro LT to RT. We have a LT, don't draft what we already have. If we have to pick at 8, best LB or receiver available.

I have wanted Ansah all offseason, but now all the internet mocks say he could go 1st or 2nd overall.  I sure hope not, I want him at 8.


If we cant get him then Id like to trade back.

If we dont trade back Id go for Dion Jordan I guess.  Or I might just sack up and take Nassib at 8 and hope hes good.

I like option 2 the best, except I'd put Glenn at RT and let Chris Hairston battle with whoever else they have to play the open OG spot.  Get a guy who you have a high degree of confidence will improve your team.  Improve the pass and run blocking, feed Spiller and Jackson the ball and when you do throw, at least whomever the QB is will have time to do so.

He won't get passed the bears at #20. Not a chance he gets to the second. Last year Kuechly was going mid to late first. Brown will be the same.

stay away from dbs and rbs in the first couple rounds and i'll be happy. lb, wr, te, de, qb, ol, or dt, i don't care. just no more freakin' high pick rbs and dbs for a while.

I would never draft a LB who ran a 4.9 something in the 40. There are linemen faster

I'm with you on Brown, not sure he will be that good, but as a waekside ILB and nickel and dime linebacker be will he solid.  But, he needs protection.

I simply want the Bills to get EJ Manuel any way they can...If they feel safe trading down then great...But if they feel he will be gone, and they have to grab him at #8, so be it...

I'm all in on EJ Manuel...I like his upside better than Geno Smith...And I've been a pretty big Geno supporter over these past few months...I would be happy with Geno at #8 as well... B-)

all 3 of these together can be done
exception J Jones.
and no C. Patterson
PS stop with the moving Glenn scenarios. he's not a guard.He's too good and blinside protection to be a RT
  He's going to be probowl LT... mark my words

If we stay at 8: Tavon Austin (assuming Jordan is off the board).
If we trade down: Alec Ogletree

Both are excellent choices for the Bills

Im not going to mark anything, I am sure after one season you said the same about Mike Williams.  No one knows and he hasn't shown me pro bowl level play yet.

Patterson is the guy for me at #8. I think that he will be one of those guys that some teams ahead of us wish they'd drafted but went with the so-called "safe" pick instead.

Go and watch his highlight videos again. His moves are unreal. The Bills need a true impact player on offense to compliment Spiller and one who you'd be happy to place the franchise tag on in the future.
